I was born in the Toronto suburb of Unionville, Ontario. My sister joined the family three years later and despite my brat-like insistence that my parents hadn’t really wanted her, she stayed on.
The first time I remember discovering an interest in taking pictures, I was 16 and on vacation with my family at a provincial park in the B.C. Interior. My dad passed down his old Pentax Spotmatic to me and I immediately fell in love with the trance it could put me in. I’ve taught myself photography, slide film in that Spotmatic is where the journey started.
In my mid-twenties I moved to London, England for a year to assist top photographers, experience living abroad and use the word ‘mate’ as much as possible. I also loved the sounds of Britpop – for me, music’s ‘good ‘ol days’. I have a keen interest in music, new and old, and I always have something tasty playing in the background while we shoot.
I’ve played baseball since I was a kid and recently developed a love for back-country camping. My sister added the newest member of our family in 2011, making me an uncle for the first time.
A collaborator at heart, I’ve been very fortunate to work with some of the best people in the business. I live a short walk from my studio in Toronto and I thoroughly enjoy what I do every day.
