I have been actively involved in photography since high school.  Leading up our high school  yearbook photography team, I also spent countless hours out in the world around me photographing nature.  After I graduated friends started asking me to photograph their weddings etc... This soon led into a very busy part time job, which  led into having a retail store store front with a large studio and photo lab.  

It was around this time that digital made a real push into the photographic world.  I ended up selling the photo lab and working from my home, as the majority of my sessions were on location shoots I didn't feel the need for the studio space.  As I started moving forward with the digital photography world, one camera led to another, and another and 4 more etc etc... technology kept changing quickly.  I entered photo contests both provincially and nationally and have received several awards over the years for my work.

As photography continues to change and morph itself with the digital world, cameras are taking on different shapes. I used to shoot with a LARGE HEAVY medium format Mamiya 645 Pro camera with interchangeable film backs which turned into DSLRs. Although I still have several Nikon DSLRs, I won't hesitate to use even the iPhone, which is always with me.  Photography is an art and the camera is merely a tool to capture the beauty.  As an artist it's up to me to learn and maximize each tool, and use it to it's fullest potential.

I spoke about my photographic history in my bio even though it's always been in my blood from a very young age, but that's not what makes me who I am.  It's what I love to do and a passion of mine. I love technology, nature, hiking, snow shoeing, biking, spending time with friends... but most importantly, I am a father to the most amazing girl ever.  Kai, my Peanut as I usually call her, is who makes my life amazing.  Her mom and I divorced some years ago but have maintained a great friendship.  We've always made sure that she knows she's loved by both of us and I think it shows in her personality and fun loving spirit. It's funny how both of us take on a different role with her. I'm her jungle gym and when we spend time together, it's all about jumping on to me and wrestling, or going for bike rides and exploring the creek to find "pet" snails or snow shoeing around the lake.  Life is never dull with her.  I love you Peanut!

As you can probably tell from my other bio areas, I love photography.  It's a true passion of mine. People would always look at me funny when I'd tell them that if I was stressed with work (photography business), I'd go out and take pictures.  From as far back as I can remember, my Dad always had a camera along when we were out anywhere...I guess that rubbed off on me.  Now I'm the one carrying a camera whenever I go out.  I love capturing the "unseen" beauty of the world that, sadly, most people just walk on by in their rush to live their lives.  Bringing that beauty out and seeing the little details is definitely a passion!
