i am a freelance photographer based in hamilton ontario canada. i've been actively shooting for over 15 years and specialize in nature photography and more recently, live music photography.
I began shooting entertainment in 2007, working for the now defunct geritol follies, a group of senior citizens who performed at a number of world-class facilities, including hamilton place and the macIntyre theatre in hamilton as well as venues in florida, south carolina and other locations across canada. i became their official photographer, a position that i held until 2014. around the same time i began to seek event approval for shooting live festivals in southern ontario where i was allowed to photograph from the apron of the stage ("the pit").
my experience also includes a number of wedding shoots, portrait sessions and landscape photography, the latter on a recreational level.
Because my shooting is always on-site, i do not have a physical studio, preferring to set up on location.
i am recognized and supported by canon canada as a member of the canon professional network. canon supports me with gear and services while shooting sanctioned events. i also receive preferential support for any repairs or adjustments that i need.
i exclusively use canon cameras and lens and currently enjoy supporting the hamilton music scene by photographing local musicians in the hamilton and burlington area. recently i've added photographic support for the hamilton art crawl, an event that takes place on james street north in hamilton, on a monthly basis.
