About Me

Toronto based wildlife, travel & model photographer and fantasy artist.

What started as a hobby has gradually become my passion. I began photography at an early age, using film and darkroom techniques. My initial work in wildlife and event photography expanded into model photography in 1999, focussing on swimwear and artistic nudes. After the transition to digital photography, I began to develop my skills in digital touchup and later 3D rendering and digital artistry. Though I still love and continue to hone my skills in other styles, fantasy art (both 3D-rendering and photography-based) is now my favourite style.

My Philosophy

"You don't take a photograph, you make it." ~Ansel Adams

Good photography requires skill and decent equipment. Great photography requires planning and patience too. I work in a range of styles, and when working for a client I'm focussed on understanding and bringing the right style in to meet their needs.

My Equipment & Location

My gear is largely Canon, and includes both 2D and 3D lenses. Having digital editing skills, I can work anywhere and add a background later so most of the time I work from a home studio. It's convenient and provides full studio lighting control (I use a combination of: seamless backdrop, strobes, light box, umbrellas, reflectors & ring flash). I also work on location or in larger studios where needed.
