I am a curious traveler of North America and a fine art/freelance photographer. My main passion lies in capturing nature and wildlife. I was born and raised in Ontario, Canada and this is where my love for beautiful landscapes and wildlife began. My images are created as an expression of the world around us, which is forever changing.
At my core I am an artist - whether it be writing, drawing, crafting or painting. I received a camera as a gift in 2012, when words and colours had escaped me, and fell in love with photography. I quickly learned the basics and I began to express myself through images.
In 2013 I made the decision to attend Georgian College for Digital Photography and Imaging. I have learned so much from my professors and by being in the studio, and am very proud to have completed my schooling on the Dean’s List. As I developed in the program I began to express myself in the art of figure study/nudes. The human body fascinates me, and what better way to tell a story or display an emotion than with the body itself.
My range of subjects is fairly broad; but whether I am photographing wildlife and the rolling landscapes of North America or branching out into figure study and portraiture, my common aim is always the same - to capture the youthful energy of life's most spontaneous moments, bringing the viewer to a memorable place of pleasure.
This website should provide a general idea of what I do. As for where this journey is going to take me, I'd like to think it will be a lifelong adventure.
