ABOUT  ME

My Philosophy

The instinct to create beautiful photos is deep in my soul.
I strive to preserve something authentic and interesting about a broad range of experiences as I take my journey through life. If you hire me I wish to earn your trust with the most precious people and places in your life. I literally want to turn your fleeting moments into memories that last a lifetime.

I love what I do and that passion directly translates to achieving the best possible photos for me and my clients.

My Background

I was born and raised in the beautiful and cozy community of Gander Newfoundland. I then came to Antigonish to attend St.Francis Xavier University where I achieved both a Bachelor of Information Systems and a Bachelor in Business Administration. I started taking digital photos in fall of 2000 and have never stopped. Along the way I also founded a number of businesses: Highland Multimedia Inc, RentGorilla and the Newfoundland Clothing Company. I am also the Dean of Awesome for the Antigonish Awesome Foundation. I also run the Facebook page Antigonish Life

More important then all of that I am a dad, a husband, a brother, a son and an uncle.  These experiences teach me the most important lessons in life... love.
