How did this all begin?
My father was a real influence on me with his creative photography when I was young (even building an underwater housing so he could scuba dive with his Canon AE-1). I got into photography more seriously while travelling through Canada and to East Africa for my work with World Vision Canada (2004-2012). My images from that time were used in several Canadian newspapers and in a number of World Vision print and online publications. Winning first prize in a photo contest from Vistek Camera and other sources of affirmation encouraged me to go further and begin showing my work more formally.
I love capturing vibrant forms of cultural expression, whether overseas, such as in Uganda with Photographers Without Borders last summer, or finding art on the streets of Toronto. I love capturing moments where objects, words, and/or people interact to create added intrigue and visual resonance. If I get an idea for an image I’ll go the distance to be there with the tools needed to create it.
My process involves capturing real events and scenes and doing minimal post-processing that enhances the strength of the image without any heavy-handed editing. I work with high quality printing paper to deliver images that will give their owners years of artistic enjoyment. I am thankful to say that my images are in the private collections of many individuals, including local politicians and artists.
