Shortly after opening up my studio I was featured as a "Fresh Face" photographer in Applied Arts Magazine and somehow 20 years has gone by.

My photographs vary in styles as well as subject matter, everything from babies (sometimes they cry but I have managed to keep clients smiling), to food (I do like to nibble) and product/still life as I like to play with stuff too.

Adding to the fun, I have been photographing a variety of cats and dogs for packaging. Some packages are currently on store shelves and more to arrive soon.

I enjoy working with a variety of art directors/designers whether from ad agencies, magazines or clients directly.

I like the challenges and differences each assignment brings to my studio.





Some of the clients I've worked with:

  Purina, Cat Chow, Dog Chow, Alpo
TD Bank
Bonne Bell
American Express 
Fuji Canada
  Allergic Living Magazine
  Style At Home Magazine 
Today's Parent Magazine
