I became interested in photography when I won enough money in a neighborhood poker game (beginner’s luck), to purchase my first slr camera.... a Canon AE-1. Living on a farm, I mostly took pictures of cats and dogs, horses and cattle, but then the kids started sneaking into the pictures. I entered some in the local fair and won a few ribbons. And I was happy with that.
Until one year my neighbor asked me to take pictures for their wedding, and I have never looked back.
Since then, mostly through referrals only, I have gone from shooting one or two weddings in a year, to 20 in some years. I have learned that I love weddings and that they are one of the most important and special days in anyone’s life. Because of that, I treasure every bride and groom that has entrusted me with their photography for the day. I shoot with backup gear for everything, and always have a second shooter with me. Your day is just too important to me not to.
I strive to continue learning and growing in my craft. I am an accredited member of PPOC (Professional Photographers of Canada) and I enjoy taking workshops from my peers both online and in person.
I have been a member of the Lethbridge Photography Club for nearly as long as I’ve been shooting, which I enjoy not only for what I learn from being around such a diverse group of photographers, but also because it gives me a chance to give back and teach others what I have learned.
I live and shoot in the Lethbridge area of southern Alberta, Canada.
