Wandering

I really enjoy the off normal places; the places that make people say wow! “That’s on this planet” and just as quickly think why on earth would anyone want to be that cold or how did he get there. I travel to the different continents, with the polar regions being my favourite. Shooting in often extreme conditions with a smile and a giggle, knowing there is a story to this image.

When I am not wandering this planet, I love calling Calgary, Alberta my home. I spend most weekends hiking in the fantastic Rockies, whether I am under a glacier, on top of one, or attempting a new climb. I am always shooting and enjoying the day as I look for the interesting compositions of simplicity and long leading lines. Anytime I am able to get out to the other provinces, I am usually in a kayak and exploring the British Columbia coast lines shooting for clients or friends.

I enjoy my down time being a devoted yogi with daily practice and an avid reader, always researching my next adventure. I would consider myself a person without labels as I enjoy every shot from landscapes to environmental portraits to portraiture, whether it’s industrial or a personal one. It truly is whatever a client has dreamed up or a collaboration of ideas to unlock that image that is in the mind.
