About me

When most photographers hear the word “wedding” they think of a ceremony, a bridal party and a staged reception with drunken speeches and a bouquet toss. I’ve learned that there is much more to weddings than that. They are the unscripted and intimate moments that happen when many photographers are waiting to shoot the next item in the program. Whether I’m shooting brides getting ready in the morning or elephants walking through the streets of Bangkok, I bring the same passion to create images where documentary meets art. 

I graduated from the University of Toronto with a degree in Psychology and planned to continue with it but after 4 years of exploring the psyche and human behaviour I decided to get out and explore the world. I travelled and worked my way through 2 years in India and Southeast Asia. Soon after landing a job with a logistics company in Budapest in 2006, I was dispatched to manage their office in Kabul, Afghanistan. Before I left I bought my first camera and soon found myself consumed with capturing the images I saw around me. After 6 months in Kabul I decided to pursue a career in photography. 

With more than a decade of experience, I've been privilaged to work with a diverse range of editorial, corporate and non-profit clients such as Pepsi, Bloomberg, Chanel, AirBnb, NBC Universal, Heineken, FIFA, Greenpeace, Singapore Airlines, and Getty Images, to name a few. My editorial work has been featured in publications such as National Geographic, The New York Times, Vanity Fair, Time, Rolling Stone and Travel + Leisure.
