I approach portraiture as an opportunity to emphasize fascinating people through light, emotion and storytelling.  I pride myself on creating a lively and exciting atmosphere for my subjects, team and clients.  I believe our finest work is achieved when our cast is fully engaged and having just enough fun to let their guard down.  Production includes some of the best producers in Toronto as well as top tier wardrobe, makeup, casting & location services. 

The Applied Arts Photography Annual has awarded my work twice for portraiture as well as my series on big Hawaiian surf. (2009, 2012, 2017).  

Recently awarded Gold at the 2020 Canadian Online Publishing Awards for Photo Journalism w York University Magazine.

I have had the pleasure of collaborating with agencies, networks and magazines in Canada, the US and London.  Clients include CBC, eOne, VISA, GM, Nissan, Infiniti, HGTV, ScotiaBank, Corus Entertainment, Big Brother Canada, Top Chef Canada, York University, Ryerson University, Doug & Partners, SOS, Isobar, Aardvark Inc, TAXI, Draft FCB & Report On Business Magazine.

I just finished The Lost Apothecary by Sarah Penner.  A quick beach read that teeters on the edge of YA but super fun.  I just picked up Greenlights by Matthew McConaughey and I haven't been able to put it down!  Alright, alright, alright.
