Crafting images of beautiful moments in challenging situations

My ability to be unobtrusive and blend-in, together with my knowledge of using natural light to shape the image, allows me to craft photographs of real meaning and emotional resonance. Images true to the moment.

    Authentic and captivating photographs of emotional moments in the truly beautiful whirlwind of a wedding. 'Documentary photographer of the wedding day' rather than the typical wedding photographer.

    Canadian Cancer Society photo-essays of heartening determination shot across Canada for awareness campaigns, informational brochures, and fundraising materials.

    Documenting dignity and political uncertainty around Thailand for Amnesty International, leading to a nation-wide traveling photographic exhibition highlighting stories through my documentary photography.

    Commercial and corporate clients include Nissan and Infinity, Tre Stelle, Source for Sports, Credit Valley Conservation Authority, Autos.ca, Gentek Building Products, Foto Source, and OK&D Marketing.

    Videography and editing for Echo Bay Media, Source for Sports, SteelForme, Outpost magazine, EatDrinkTravel, Eikonic Design, St. Joseph's Healthcare Hamilton, the Granite Club, and Yukon Travel.

    Photojournalism of Nobel Peace Prize recipient Aung San Suu Kyi rallying in Burma; Japanese geishas moving through cobblestone alleyways in Kyoto; Indian sadhu holy men amidst funeral pyre smoke in Varanasi; Colombian adventures for Outpost travel magazine, and more.

A Story to Tell

Documentary Weddings

Real moments, true emotions, a photo-essay that tells a story of your wedding. 

None of the typical clichés, poses, or fakeness. 

A true and captivating photography made possible by my years of international documentary and commercial experience, separating me from the others in an industry of amateurs and generic 'cheesy' wedding photos.

Photographs with a classic European film and gallery exhibition style. Fresh yet timeless. 

My skill and reputation in Toronto documentary wedding photography and candid photojournalism has established me as the Toronto Eaton Chelsea hotel's exclusive preferred wedding photographer.
