- Could you tell us about how you became involved with photography and realized you wanted to be a photographer?
Me: I started at a very young age with a film camera and people used to be very thrilled with the way I approach them to be in front of my lens.
- Do you think that photography has changed you in any way? What do you love most about Photography?
Me: Yes, most definitely!
I now see the world from a different point of view, In my head, I am always placing a subject at that particular location where I am and trying to figure out what the outcome would be in a photograph. What I like most about Photography is the ability to create the impossible from just a fraction of your imagination.
- Do you have any favourite pieces of equipment you couldn’t live without?
Me: Over the years, I developed a love relationship with the 70-200 mm f/2.8 lens ; It became one of my favorite lenses and therefore never leave home without it.
- If you had unlimited resources who and what would you photograph?
Me: I enjoy photographing people with a story to tell so if i had unlimited resources I would definitely veterans older people to showcase what they've been through.
- How do you keep yourself motivated when it comes to creating your editorials?
Me: I am constantly creating images in my head and once I have something in mind I cannot sleep until it comes to life.
- Could you tell us a little bit about the concept behind your editorials we featured?
Me: The model (Lisa Evanoff) is obsess with horses and truth be told, so am I. A very good friend of mine has this gorgeous horse (Smoke) well trained so I approached with the idea of doing an editorial with him (Smoke) and a model (Lisa) and she was thrilled to be on board and help me create this editorial.
- What is the impression you want viewers to get from your work?
Me: I want the viewers to get the impression that they were part of the photoshoot when it happened, I want them to see what I saw before I took each shot.
- Do you have any tips for photographers/creatives at the start of their journey?
Me: I would say to let your imagination run wild, whatever vision is going through your head to at least try it, only through trial errors you will get better.
- Amongst your work do you have a favourite and why?
Me: So far, almost every photo session is a favorite, each photograph speaks to me in different ways.
- What do you feel has been your biggest accomplishment to date?
Me: My biggest accomplishment to date would be becoming one of the official Canon Canada Photographers
- Is there any thing key in the future your aiming for?
Me: I am aiming to be a Celebrity Fashion Photographer
