Photographer & Creative Director
I am a Vancouver based photographer born and raised in Winnipeg Manitoba. The beginning of high school was when I realized I really enjoyed photography. I would use the most basic point and shoot film cameras available to me and take random photos. I later learned that one of my uncles was a photographer and had a SLR camera that I was able to play around with. I ended up using it when I decided to take some photography courses at Red River College to gain a better understanding of how to control manual cameras and take better photos.
Once I had that knowledge, I would get my siblings or friends to be models for me. I would take lamps and blankets from around the house to create simple studio set ups. Other times I would just go outside and take natural light portraits. I realized 2 things. I liked working with people and that I preferred natural light photography.
It wasn't until 2008 that I switch over to a DSLR camera and picked up my first Canon Camera. Prior to that I would strictly shoot with film. In my head I would always think that shooting film photography is "real" photography. Obviously that is not the case. I really enjoyed the suspense of waiting to see what photos turned out. The only thing is, it got really pricey to develop so many rolls film. So here we are today, I can't get enough of my DSLRs. I've shot some of my best work with them.
