My path to becoming a commercial photographer started at a very early age. One of my earliest memories is running around the family home in Winnipeg with a Brownie Hawkeye that my mom had put in my toybox. I didn’t know what it did but it made a cool clicking noise when I pushed the button! I eventually got into graphic arts while in high school. I had no formal training but I would screen print photo-stenciled t-shirts for myself and my friends. After graduation, my sister gave me her camera and I’ve been taking pictures ever since.
My foray into commercial photography would have to wait a few years, though. I became a graphic artist in 1993 and worked in that profession until 2001 when I decided to devote all of my efforts to commercial photography. Fifteen years later, I’m still running my own freelance photography business. Now I feel like it’s time to pass on my knowledge to the next generation of photographers, so I’m currently studying for my Vocational Teaching Certificate. The posts on this site are the product of my studies.
