As a kid growing up in New Brunswick, on the eastern side of Canada, I wasn't exposed to the mountains for a very long time. Yet I was lucky enough to be exposed to photography through my father's hobby, spending many nights together as a family, reliving our youth through old slideshows in our dark basement. I never remember getting any formal training from these slideshows but I assume I absorbed lots of techniques and a creative eye just by being introduced to photography so young.
Many years later, while living in Jasper National Park, I received my first digital camera from my parents, which I took on all my biking and skiing adventures. As my creative eye grew stronger, I wanted a new challenge for my photography and moved to Revelstoke, BC just over ten years ago.
I thankfully fell in with a great crew of friends and adventurers who were pushing themselves in a wild array of self-powered adventures. Mountain biking and backcountry skiing became my primary sports and I rarely left my camera at home. Photography slowly grew into more than a hobby, becoming an obsessive passion over the years and finally a full-time job over the last three years. Being able to travel and shoot photos all over the world, while doing the sports I love so much, is a privilege and continues to keep me grounded through the peaks and valleys of being a professional adventure photographer.
