What I'm All About
I’m a family photographer based in crazy beautiful Vancouver B.C and have been passionately photographing documentary and street stories for over 10 years. I’m a 4th generation photographer but most importantly I’m dad to Lily and married to the once in a lifetime woman and mother Ciara.
Since our little monkey Lily joined our circus in 2015, I’ve focused on documenting those fleeting, real and pure moments in everyday family life.
Making breakfast, crafts or jumping in muddy puddles – my candid, documentary and lifestyle approach to family photography focuses on capturing those passing moments, turning them into precious memories shielded from time and cherished by the ones we love.
I’m not into awkward poses and studio lighting because let’s be honest, kids shouldn’t be posed and real life cannot be staged.
I’m about documenting your family for who you are… even when everybody looks good! I want to capture your kids actually looking like themselves. I want to capture those real & pure moments in the most natural way possible.
The stuff I care about is real love, real people, pure moments and imperfect perfection. How you look at each other, how you hold them, how they make you laugh, the in-between moments, the goosebumps when they look at you and the look in your eyes when they smile.
I don’t want to be your photographer, I want to be your family’s storyteller.
Tell me your story, and let’s capture this beautiful thing together.
In 2017 together with Steve Simon, The Passionate Photographer, I co-founded PhotoEducate, the world’s leading photography workshop platform.
My mission for Photo Educate is to bring the world’s best photography education opportunities into one place and connect the best photographers in the world with passionate photography students.
In 2018 I launch my own series of Photography Workshops on Photo Educate that aim to teach the fundamentals of candid, street and documentary photography to students from around the world on the streets of Vancouver B.C.
I’m incredibly honoured to have developed photography workshop promotional campaigns through Photo Educate for some of the world’s top photographers including Art Wolfe, Peter Hurley, Ben Long, “The Strobist” David Hobby, Zack Arias and Tamara Lackey.
Entrepreneurship & Marketing
As a creative entrepreneur, I’m passionate about building client-centered businesses that value creativity and professionalism.
Over my career I’ve built a tech. business from scratch that was sold to a leading global media company, a digital marketing agency where I designed campaigns for large brands including Nivea, Pampers, McDonald’s and Pepsi, and a project management consultancy where I led complex, multi-million dollar projects for leading telcos. such as Vodafone.
All these experiences have helped me grow, learn and meet some amazing people along the way.
But none of this has meant more to me than my photography.
I’m incredibly excited to bring all my creative, entrepreneurial and client-focused experience together to build the leading, most innovative and professional family photography studio in Vancouver.
