I’m a professional photographer based out of Calgary, Canada that specializes in documentary, fashion and creative portrait photography.
I started taking photos when I was 16 and it quickly became a passion and a necessity to document everything I saw and experienced. 10 years later, I still take my camera everywhere. I love exploring new places and meeting new people. I often see life as a movie reel unraveling before my eyes. I don’t like when people pose for photos and I don’t like modifying light (although sometimes I have to for certain shoots). I want to create documentaries on the fragility of human nature. I want to live off doing what I love.
