I am a believer that photography is an amazing tool to capture distinctive moments. Although I have studied photography professionally at North Island College on Vancouver Island, my visual training and awareness of distinctive moments have come from my travels. Traveling affected the way I see the world around me; I became more aware of my surroundings and all the striking moments in time that are worthy of a photograph.

Growing up on Vancouver Island I was encompassed by stunning scenery. When I first started taking pictures it was natural for me to capture my surroundings. As my interest in photography expanded, so did my thirst for a greater depth of field. I began to capture extreme sports, lifestyles, travel, portraits and weddings – working with people became a passion. I love the dynamic interaction of working with others and I want to capture the special moments in people‚Äôs lives, whether it be a surfer pulling into a barrel, the look on a groom’s face as he sees his bride for the first time, or a farmer’s long walk home after a day at the markets.

I hope you enjoy my site and I look forward to hearing from you.
