As a self-taught artist, I work hard to create images that intrigue and inspire. Street photography — the art of capturing candid images in everyday life — allows me to document the world around me, moment by moment. My surroundings become a stage, and with it, a myriad of stories and characters.

Art has always been a part of my life; my father was an artist and I inherited his talent for drawing. He also took up photography as a hobby in his later years. Little did I know that I would continue to follow in his footsteps.

I am a member of Scarborough Arts and have exhibited at its annual Art in the Park festivals. My work was part of Gallery City, a city-wide “art crawl” this past summer that featured 35 artists and more than 100 businesses in street-side art galleries.

In 2017, I published “One Moment In Time,” my first collection of images. I also just recently printed a collection of street photos called “72 Hours In New York.”

As with most things, this is a journey of discovery and learning. In this space, I post images of particular interest or significance for me and the stories behind them.

If any of the images in my portfolio interest you, please contact me about print sizes and prices.

If you recently modelled for me in street photography (even if it’s not posted here), contact me and I would be happy to send you a photo file free of charge.
