for the colourful and creative
I’m an Ontario-bred, BC-based photographer, and I’m glad you’re here.
I love cold water, good light and bright colours.
With camera in hand, I can’t wait to capture all your favourite things.
i don’t expect your whole house to be painted white
Every frame I shoot is in service of capturing who you really are right now. There’s beauty and value in this moment in time, no props needed.
Somebody down the road, whether it’s your kids, grandkids, or your own future self, will find these photos and will get to live in these moments for a little while. I shoot with that person in mind.

On this weird American shopping holiday, instead of buying stuff you don't need, why not redistribute some resources to the Gidimt'en legal fund and score yourself a Cowichan River print at the same time!
It has felt a little funny to think about posting client work when I have family displaced by floods in Abbotsford and friends facing violence and displacement by police in Gidimt'en territory, but it feels right to post a portrait of Ruby of @tierranegra_arts from our recent headshot session. I don't always know how to integrate being vocal about my values around land defence and sovereignty into my business, and Ruby is someone I look to for inspiration. She seamlessly connects the work she does to broader struggles. Whether she's leading accessible fitness classes, tours of Hogan's Alley for youth of colour or amplifying the voices of Wet'suwet'en people defending their land, the link between what she puts out in to the world and her values is front and centre.
Got the film scans back from our Thanksgiving jaunt to the mainland! We celebrated the return of the rays of mountain light that are @leahhorlick and @lavenderrr.menace with a hike in the usual place and it was 😍😍😍😭😭😭🍄🌿🌲
The bus build is coming along nicely, with recent additions being a teeny tiny woodstove and a pile of flooring I need to learn how to install. Every step of the way this guy has offered his expert opinion, checking out each new bit of progress. I think he thinks we're building the bus just for him (he might not be entirely wrong)
Hallo! That was a long and lovely social media break, wasn't it? Between taking photos, tending the garden and building the bus, I needed some time away from the internet.
This very special person has a very special birthday this month, and I'm excited for what I hope will be a very special present I'm scheming up for them.
