Based in Sooke, British Columbia, I am an award winning photographer and videographer as well as a graphic designer, a Coxswain with the Canadian Coast Guard Auxiliary Station #37 in Sooke and I am also an entrepreneur and manage the daily operations of my graphic design and creative communications firm.
I am schooled in graphic design and black and white photography.
While I appreciate all forms of photography, I continuously strive to improve my skills and push the boundaries of modern photography. I prefer to concentrate on artistic landscape, people and pet photography. Combining my knowledge of post-processing with my passion for photographic imagery, my goal is to create stunning, and sometimes haunting, artistic images. Through rich tones and detailed composition, my images capture the ambience of the environment that allows reality to become an expression of the imagination.
I invite you to browse my galleries to get a sense of my style. My landscape photography has been described as incandescent, honest and haunting—qualities that have flowed into my lifestyle photography. Because of this artistry, my clients receive a collection of images that portray real, yet beautiful moments that occur during our session. Contact me today to discuss how to capture and create lasting memories.”
