As a young schoolboy, I used to organize my desk in a very precise, symmetrical way. Pencils would line up perfectly with books and nothing would be touching other things. Crazy? No way. Obsessive? Absolutely. My desk was a veritable homage to modern design and composition and thus launched a lifelong odyssey into the world of visual storytelling. When I was 10, I got my first camera but it wasn’t until I turned 20 that I truly developed the physical and mental strength to do it as a career. That year I rode my bike 12,000 km’s across the country in 5 and a half months – magnifying my humanity and testing my virtues of discipline, patience and commitment. I’ve since left my bike far behind, but those experiences continue to propel me to higher plateaus of professionalism and achievement within my craft.
I take great pride in my technical craftsmanship. Ambitious clients, in search of unique and dynamic work, can hold their confidence in my ability to achieve evocative and technically precise images. At every stage of the photographic process, I coordinate and execute to a high calibre.
My past experience includes work with a wide variety of clientele, from forward-thinking international organizations to leading communications firms throughout North America. Working within the requirements of my clients creative briefs, my work ranges a diversity of styles: from bold and cinematic, to nuanced and sophisticated.
The success of my work rests on my ability to make my photographic subjects feel comfortable in front of my lens. I work with models of varying skill levels to create articulate and compelling stories. The proof is in my close working relationships with both my clients and the subjects I photograph.
