Toronto, Ontario is my base for exploring photography and multi-media. My passion for photography includes everything from fashion, models, people, nature, racing, travel, landscape and the surreal moments in life. Seeing the world through photography has raised my awareness of what true beauty is and helped raise my social consciousness.
My photographic roots originated in film at an early age and transitioned into a serious hobby when I got my first 35mm camera. The journey continued with photographic education at Sheridan College and expanding my visual horizons through global travel for the next 20 years. My photographic journey continued through the Ryerson C.E. Image Arts program. Formal education in photography has pushed my creativity and boundaries.
My early influences are Diane Arbus, Eric Kroll, Henry Cartier Bresson, Galen Rowell, Helmut Newton and Richard Avedon. My interest in these photographers echoes my interest in the golden days of cinematography from the 40's through the late 60's.
