|Born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and currently residing in Dublin, Ireland.
My photography takes me around the globe photographing landscapes, people, streets and urban environments using methods such as Multiple Exposures and Intentional Camera Movement.
I don’t necessarily photograph subjects. I photograph the way things make me feel. Admittedly, it may a bit of a strange concept, but it works – and it’s the best way to describe my approach. My goal has always been to show emotions in my art rather than a simple visual depiction of a person, place or thing.
Much of what I shoot is done spontaneously without preconceived ideas. I let what is around me dictate what is to be photographed.
Shooting photos is only the first step – a beginning. I take the raw images and create what I see in my mind’s eye. Discovering textures present in the shot and sometimes adding them after. Enhancing the contrast of light and dark to create the mood and emotions I felt and feel while creating the image. In the end, it’s all about listening to my heart and mind and creating a visual representation of what I feel the moment the shutter is released.
