I’ve been working as a photographer for the last 16 years. I graduated from Algonquin College in 2005 and worked as an assistant for the next two years alongside some of the top wedding and commercial photographers in Toronto. I’ve been taking international contracts since 2005, and I’ve worked on over 200 projects. Photography is a never-ending learning experience for me, and I’d love to try new ideas.
In the world of social media, it’s never been more critical to have a good relationship with photography in order to establish one’s brand and create value for the customer. Also, having a background in media and advertising, I do think that I can bring to the table an element of storytelling that helps create value for the brands and clients who are seeking to promote themselves in the online media.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
When working with people, it’s important to stay focussed on their comfort level and continue interacting with them in a way that lets them just be themselves. Spending time with your clients and getting to know them a little bit on a personal level always helps make a photoshoot a bit more comfortable for both of you as you’re no longer strangers. I’m going in curious, and I can build rapport pretty quickly, and this translates well in my work.
A fun fact about this photographer
I’m an avid motorcyclist and I’ve taken my motorcycle across the United States and Canada several times. I’m planning an upcoming trip to Antarctica and I’m looking forward to capturing some of the wildlife there and presenting it on my Instagram.
