Biography & Resume

I'm a professional photographer based in beautiful Victoria British Columbia. After working in high tech and government for over 10 years, I quit everything to pursue my passion for photography full-time. I graduated from the Western Academy of Photography winning the "best overall student" award and now I am actively pursuing a business as a photographer specializing in wildlife, nature & travel stock photography, weddings and portraits.
