When I was young, I remember all the beauty that surrounded me – the fields of my grandparents, the sky from my treetop perch, the city crowds – these images, now only living in memory, showed me how fleeting a moment can be. The need to preserve these scenes inspired me and continues to inspire my journey as a photographer.
This awe I felt as a child is something that I can’t keep to myself, through my lens I aim to share my passion with others, not only showing people something beautiful but to have them appreciate how much a moment is worth.
As a traveler, many of my photographs are taken in gratitude for the experiences and opportunities I have had, as well as a chronicle of the world through my eyes.
From mountain to sea, I find most of my inspiration in nature, but the towering skyline of a city and its crowded streets inspire me just as easily.
Portrait photography has recently sparked further inspiration; the relationship between a subject and the composition is fascinating: slight movements change surroundings while the scenery too affects the model’s framing and lighting. Finding the perfect balance between both scene and subject is a challenge with endless possibilities but just as many rewards.
Continuously evolving, my passion for photography aims to document the essence of beauty in many forms – people and nature. My journey so far has been an absolute joy and, because of this, I don’t think I can ever take another moment for granted.
After receiving my photography certificate from New York Institute of Photography I continued to supplement my passion with various courses at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology and Metro Continuing Education. I am currently learning alongside other photographers in the the Offbeat Community.
