Love is all you need…but having some beautiful pictures to remind you of that love never hurt. Over a few years, I've had the honour of documenting wedding days and engagements for some very special couples. I'm always honoured and I always love the challenge.
Life is full of little moments that pass us by before we've even realized they've happened. I try to keep my eyes open to all the details that make life such a beautiful thing. The trick, though, is showing the everyday stuff and not having the reaction be "so what?".
Landscape photography is challenging. It's trying to be at the right place, creating the right composition, just as the light is perfect. I never feel like I have it all figured out, which is what keeps me setting my alarm for the wee hours of a Saturday morning. If I feel that I have conveyed an emotion with a photo, I feel like I've done my job.
I live in Burlington, Ontario, Canada with my wife Andrea and our 2 children, Isaac and Eve. I am the 5th of 7 children, which means I knew from an early age that the world doesn't revolve around me. I had a great childhood (thanks mom and dad!) playing hockey, skateboarding and playing in a band with my brothers. I took photography in university as a part of my degree in Graphic Design and I haven't stopped shooting since then.
I love taking pictures. Seeing something that someone else might not see or showing the beauty in the everyday. Pictures are powerful in the way that they can make us feel all sorts of different emotions. In a way, cameras are time machines. They record a moment of time that will never exist again and let us go back and revisit it. I think that's pretty cool.
