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, Publicis, Doug & Partners, SOS, Isobar, Aardvark Inc, TAXI, Draft FCB & Anderson DDB.

I recently finished The Pisces by Melissa Broder.  If you ever wanted to know what it's like to #^$% a merman this is the book for you.  Currently trying to make my way through The Changing World Order by Ray Dalio.  A fascinating and bewildering account of historical markets, upheaval & what it means for the future.
