I didn't choose photography - it chose me. From the time I was a 6 year old kid buying any camera my allowance could get me from a garage sale, it chose me. The absolute magic of capturing a moment in time, freezing action, documenting my life, I was hooked. I took my camera everywhere I went, from family vacations, to fishing trips, to university and eventually around the world. When people ask me what I do, what my career is, effectively who I am - I say photographer. It's not a job - not even close. It's my passion, and a day doesn't go by that I don't feel incredibly fortunate that I've followed my passion as my life's work. Through this I have met some of the most incredible people from days-old newborn babies to world leaders. I get to peek behind the curtain, watch as couples open the next chapter in their life, shoot skiers in waist-deep powder, and generally just spend the bulk of my time observing. I love the challenges, and the variety of what my days look like - and love that so many wonderful people have trusted in me and my creativity to put them in front of the lens. Over 10 years doing this full time and I'm still a student. Of lighting. Of photography. Of seeing. What keeps me excited is the thought of just what I can learn from you.
