t.b.

The 3 most breath-taking things I've ever seen are: The Chagall window at the Art Institute of Chicago. The sun setting like a fire over the Grand Canyon. A full moon shining on winter mountains in the Bella Coola Valley.

I've been a full-time professional photographer for 10 years. It always amazes me how light can make anything beautiful. Dorothea Lange is my favourite photographer and my inspiration.

I knew I was a photographer from the time I held my first camera. (It was a little, clunky Kodak 110.) I've been taking pictures for over 25 years. It's what I love best, and that love goes into every one of the photos I take.

being an eco-friendly photographer:

I'm committed to maintaining an environmentally aware, ethical business. All photos are distributed exclusively in digital format. I recycle and use recycled and sustainable materials. Paper and ink use is kept to a minimum. My business supplies are bought locally whenever possible.

tv appearances:

I've enjoyed being a guest on CBC's 'Living Vancouver', on Shaw TV's 'Urban Rush', and also enjoyed making several appearances on 'Vancouver Breakfast Television'. Below are clips from some of my favourite interviews...
