Photographs capture a moment in time – or can take us back in time. They make us stand in awe of nature, marvel at an artisan’s creation, share the depth of feeling in a moment…or simply smile at a fond memory.
I try to share my journey, my vision, through the lens of my camera.
It seems everyone thinks they’re a photographer these days – how many of them really SEE the bigger picture?
About the Photography
I am available for photo shoots on location; pricing, scheduling and travel are considered for each project. Editorial, Commercial, Architectural, Fashion, Entertainment, Lifestyle…etc. Let me know what you’re trying to capture & convey and I will create that image!
If you are an artist and wish to make prints of your paintings, I can shoot those for you and provide them optimized on a CD or your external drive, ready to print.
A professional Stylist (hair, makeup, wardrobe) is available on request and I can often provide custom or period inspired clothing & props as well as access to a few interesting locations. A professional Chef/Food Stylist is also available for Restaurant, Catering or other Food Service related businesses. Charges for a stylist are extra.
To arrange your shoot, please contact me.
About the Photographer
I have always been a student of art & photography. Since childhood I have collected photos of my journeys; from the Equator to the tip of the Bruce Peninsula. I am largely self taught, though the artistic gene runs heavily through my family. I have studied the art of my relations – among many others – for both inspiration and to develop my skill as an artist. My family are connected to at least four First Nations and many of the first French to explore the Americas.
I also act for radio, theatre, film, television and frequently as an historically inspired character at festivals, special events, historical tours/lectures (some may recognize me as Capt. John Swallow – Buccaneer)
Though currently located in The Welland Canal (Port Colborne, Ontario, Canada), the historic port of New Orleans (Louisiana, US) is my second home and I spend as much time there as possible each year, as well as annual visits “down da Bayou”.
Selected prints of my work are available framed or gallery wrapped through Imagekind.
