I began my interest in photography at
eight years old when my parents gave me a Kodak Brownie Hawkeye box
family pets and neighbourhood cats and dogs were my primary subjects
and were immortalized in 3½"
x 3½" black and
white prints. I still have the camera sitting in my office - with
the flash and a bulb intact. The beloved family pets are long gone,
but I have the memories of them in a treasured photo album.
The camera has been upgraded through various film incarnations,
lenses and brands over the years, to professional full frame Canon
I've honed and expanded upon
skills and knowledge by gaining extensive experience capturing live musical
performances. In the past decade I've captured images in venues that show cased the
worst of the worst in lighting conditions. Those skills have proved
invaluable and translated into handling any given lighting
situation. Our pride is displayed in countless works of
entertainment art that showcases both Canadian and International
talent. Many of our photos grace the
pages of IndieCan Music, one of the most ardent
supporters and promoters of independent musical talent in Canada.
We've made "dirty hairy musicians" look fabulous, just imagine
what we can do for you.
Our style leans towards utilizing natural lighting, which creates individual works
that capture uninterrupted emotion and excitement in the blink
of an eye. We also carry an array of lighting gear to meet demanding conditions either in
studio or on location.
Clients, artist management and
professionals alike have expressed how delighted they are with their completed images and our polished professionalism.
