About Me

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about me. Don’t worry, I’ll keep it short.

Photography has always been a part of my life, but somewhere along the way a hobby turned into a passion. I know it’s a cliché to say that, but it’s truly the best way to describe what drives me.

I have a background in graphic design, which is something that heavily influences my photography. I approach each photograph with the creativity and attention to detail of a designer. I take pride in the work that I do, constantly striving to exceed the expectations of my clients (some would call me a perfectionist).

I live in Toronto with my wife, Lindsay, who shares my love of travel, adventure, and the outdoors (we spent our honeymoon trekking to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro). I find endless inspiration as I explore the world around me, which is why I’m naturally drawn to landscape and nature photography.

I also find inspiration in portrait photography. The process of capturing someone’s personality or telling their story in a photograph is something I find genuinely rewarding. And I simply enjoy getting to know the people I photograph.

While people and places may be framed in my viewfinder most of the time, my photographic interests are diverse – it’s what keeps photography interesting for me. Whether I’m rising to the challenge of photographing a new subject or finding new ways to capture the familiar, I thrive on the creative and technical growth these opportunities provide. I believe it makes me a better photographer, which is something I aspire to with every photograph I take.

Okay, that’s enough about me. I invite you to look through my portfolio and hope that you like what you see. If you have any questions, please contact me. I’d love to hear from you.
