Who are you? Tell us a little about yourself.
Born in Calgary, Canada. Raised on a sailboat through the South Pacific and Caribbean. High school in Vancouver. 15 years in Australia studying and working as a photographer. Work as a fashion photographer. Love to surf, travel, eat burgers, go on adventures. Currently living in LA with my awesome wife and dog. Looking for new friends.
How did you first get into photography?
My mom says that I used to steal their camera as a young kid and just take pictures. As far as I can remember, I loved shooting my friends, skateboard, snowboard, go hiking and cliff dive in the beautiful canyons of North Vancouver. Pretty much just documenting my life growing up. In Australia around 2001 I finally studied photography and then assisted fashion and advertising photographers.
Film or digital?
I studied film and dark room techniques at college and loved it, but once the digital age hit (2 years later) I embraced it. I love digital, but still give my images a nostalgic film treatment. I still have film point and shoot cameras that I run a few rolls of film through a year.
When was the last time you used a single use (disposable) camera?
Probably about 6 years ago for a photographer friend’s wedding. Apparently he had some pretty crazy images as the night went on.
