Nathan Phillip Square


August 18, 2016 – Toronto Ontario, Canada. Tourists and locals gather in Nathan Phillips Square in Toronto.

This is perhaps one of my favourite genre’s of photography to shoot. Walking the streets an finding intersting lines, shadows or light and then waiting for it to come together. I just wish I had more time to shoot this work. You can see more of my work on My Archive

The Coromorant (I think)


A juxtaposition of old and new, as old manmade iron levers used to raise and lower ramps are pictured agains the Renaissance Centre in Detroit Michigan.

I shot this on a shooting trip this summer to Windsor Ontario. The clouds, the rust and the Cormorant worked just came together in what I thought was an interesting picture. This is right down at the river and I believe these are part of the ramp system that would allow cars and passengers to loaded and unloaded off of riverboats. At least, thats what they looked like to me. You can see more from that trip and other work on My Archive

Lake Erie Pier Support


An old supporting arch estimated to be 60-70 years old sits along the shoreline of Lake Erie in Southwestern Ontario. According to locals, this structure was one of many that supported a pier where fishing boats would tie up and sell their catch to locals.

How Was Your Summer?

ms1_6626I love September. Not only is it the start of my favourite season of the year, it is also a great time to reflect on the summer past and switch the business back into high gear. Not to say this past summer was slow, in fact it was quite busy and had me travelling from Windsor through to Sudbury on assignments. This shoot however was probably one of my favourites of the year. I have been shooting dance and gymnastics events for many years and have always wanted to take these athletes and photograph them outside of the studio. This is one frame from a shoot with two dancers and one gymnast. You can see more from this shoot here:

Summer Solstice in Port Stanley


Port Stanley Ontario, Canada – June 20, 2016. A man calls it a day after paddleboarding and enjoying the extra daylight on the longest day of the year – the summer solstice.

Even after the sun had disappeared beyond the horizon, the popular beach was still busy with beachgoers enjoying the warm weather.
