Artist Statement:
My first introduction into photography was taking an old Browning box camera on a school fieldtrip in grade five. Later, in my early 20’s, my parents noticed my attraction to photography and gave me a Pentax 35mm for Christmas. Since then, I have taken thousands of pictures but was too involved with other aspects of life to take it beyond a casual interest. In recent years, photography has moved more into the forefront of my life. With thanks to prodding from friends and family, I have begun to showcase my work.

The photography I practice today bears little resemblance to what I used to do. Using High Dynamic Range photography, I seek to create images that reflect my experiences of the world around me. With a goal of embodying the natural colours and textures and bringing them out, I hope to give a viewer a sense of being within a scene presented; a scene, and a moment in time, that I had witnessed firsthand and wish to share.
