Years of roaming the globe, and more specifically, the Canadian Rockies, gives me a lot of experience on where the best photography spots are and when to get the best light. From Waterton to Jasper I have hiked, skied, climbed and shot a lot of photos and know where and when to take you to create the most amazing photography. I offer workshops, or as I call them 'photography adventures,' to incredible locations in the Canadian Rockies and around the world.
I love taking people to places they have never been and giving them an experience of a lifetime- all while learning more about the great art of photography. I keep the number of participants in each workshop and trip small so I can provide each photographer with a lot of one-on-one time and customized learning.
Before teaching photography, I created images and shot video for the magazine, stock, commercial photography and television industries. My work and nomadic tendencies has taken me to a number of places on this amazing planet. Some of my favourites are Japan, France, Iceland, Egypt, India, the Yukon, Nepal, Chile, Alaska, Borneo, Tanzania, Tierra del Fuego and Antarctica. I love wild places and places rich with culture.
My photography has won two Canadian National Magazine Awards, several best magazine photo awards and various awards for creating entertaining and exciting films including Best Radical Reel and the Peoples Choice Award at the Banff Mountain Film Fesitval. My clients include: Backpacker, Men's Journal, National Geographic, Patagonia, Black Diamond, Lowe Pro, MEC, Outdoor Photographer, Photo Life, National Geographic television, Newsweek, GEO (Japan)The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, Vertical, People, Outside, Explore, Climbing, Explore, Rock + Ice, Berge, The National Film Board of Canada, BBC, Red Bull, Outdoor Life Network, Foster Parents Plan International (volunteer India and Thailand), Canadian Business, National Geographic Adventure, Ski Canada, Mcleans and Sports Illustrated.
One of the best experiences of my life was being the artist in residence for Maple Ridge Elementary, teaching and inspiring k-4 the art of seeing and creating photography.
