Photographer. Videographer. Traveler. Author.
My days are spent telling stories with images and words at home and abroad. I have undertaken photography and videography in over two dozen countries and specialize in off-the-beaten-path assignments. From informative documentary interviews to beautiful 'B-Roll' cutaways for commercials, I pride myself on crafting footage that best serves the goals of my clients.
Currently, I am the in-house videographer and editor for Echo Bay Media, serving a vast array of corporate and commercial clients throughout Canada and beyond. Additionally, I am the Colourist on the forthcoming TV series Uprooted (Cooking Channel) and Researcher on National Geographic TV series Over the Horizon.
Recent personal work includes contributions to EatDrinkTravel.com and Outpost travel magazine, with assignments varying from the humid Colombian Amazon rainforest to the ancient German heartland; photographing Syrian refugee stories for Al Jazeera news; videographer and editor on shoots of Top Chef Canada winner Dale McKay for Tre Stelle/Arla, Canadian Olympic hockey gold medal winners Becky Keller and Cheryl Pounder with Source for Sports, large-scale Infrastructure Ontario projects, and the latest campaign for Ontario Highlands tourism.
As the Researcher for travel television shows Departures (OLN; NatGeo; Netflix) and Descending (OLN; Travel Channel), I spent years engaged in adventure travel. Needless to say I am at home with a camera navigating difficult situations.
Some things about me....
I spent a month photographing an exhibition for Amnesty International Thailand from the southern border to the northern mountain tribes.
The Prince of Ubud Bali dressed me in his clothes so that I could access and photograph a sacred religious ceremony; we then went clubbing until dawn.
I photographed Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kii on the election trail in northern Burma/Myanmar soon after release from decades of house arrest.
A burly Nicaraguan pulled me into a cockfighting ring to photograph his boisterous win.
I photographed in every Canadian province and the NWT for the Canadian Cancer Society, crafting photo-essays of heartening determination for awareness campaigns, informational brochures, and fundraising materials.
I have a PhD in Cultural History and authored two books.
My favourite film camera for personal projects is a 1958 Canon P Rangefinder I bought in Kyoto (many of the photographs on my Photo page were shot with film).
I tracked down local beer in every province and the Yukon.
And I think dogs are a superior creature.
