I consider myself extremely fortunate to have grown up in one of the most beautiful places to mountain bike and ski in the world; British Columbia, Canada. The amazing landscapes, the sports that allow us to experience them and the athletes that show us what's possible - these have always been a constant source of inspiration for me to go out and explore them for myself. In doing so, I have ignited my passion for photography.
It started with borrowing my parents digital point & shoot camera to capture photos of friends at the local trails and dirt jumps. Shortly afterwards I began studying photography in high school where I learned how to shoot, develop and print 35mm film by hand, while I started saving up for my first DSLR. A Nikon D200. As my skills behind the lens progressed, so did my friends skills on their bikes. Some of which have gone on to become some of the top riders in the world.
The ability to capture an image that is able to tell an entire story in what is sometimes only a fraction of a second is what I love about being a photographer.
