I am a landscape photographer and Journeyman Carpenter born in Altona, Manitoba currently based in Edmonton, Alberta. I became interested in photography after buying my first camera for a missions trip to El Salvador in March 2005. Once introduced to a DSLR a couple years later, is when my interest in photography started to become a passion. I am self-taught from reading books and articles online. I have learned from other photographers that I've met through online forums and am still continuing to learn as a photographer. I love to spend time in the mountains, camping and hiking, enjoying nature from the smallest bugs to the many different wild animals and landscapes the world has to offer.

Published January 21st, 2014

Hey Everyone,

I just found out yesterday that I am one of the Top 10 Finalists in the 2014 VISTEK Emerging Photographer Showcase for the 2014 Exposure Festival which is held annually in Banff, Alberta. This years "Closing Party" will be on Feb. 28, 2014 held at Calgary’s Endeavor Art Gallery from 7 – 10 p.m. (Maybe you can join me here!) The winner of this competition will be determined by tallied votes. Therefore, in order for me to win, I need as many votes as humanly possible! Now while I would greatly appreciate your votes, please visit the website and look through all of the photographs before voting on for whoever you think should win the competition. You can look through all of the images and there is a poll at the bottom, where you just have to click the box beside the photographers name you want to win the most. Hopefully me! Remember, you can only vote ONCE, so make it count!
