I have worked in the career field of photography well before the digital age. Having been a member of various photography clubs, photography education and also an extensive career in a photo-lab environment, I learned to take photographs on a 35mm camera and professionally develop 35mm film. I edited images before there was photoshop, and took pride in my work to give people the best developed and printed images I could offer. I have always had a love with photography. I love that priceless memories can be captured and preserved with one well-taken photograph, transporting you back to a moment in time.
I have photographed many things over the years, from family portraits, pets & animals, and even weddings.
In my design creations, I pull from my background in technical theatre as a graduate of Sheridan College. I majored in Props creation and had the honour of studying under some of the best in the business for properties, lighting, stage management & more. This background compliments my photography work as well, in that at its heart, photography is the understanding of light and artistic expression.
I specialize in working with pets & animals of all sizes. I have a long history working with pets and their people as a Certified & Registered Reiki Master (specializing in working with animals) and Certifed Animal Bowen Physiotherapy practitioner. I do not find it necessary to buy trust with treats, but genuinely earn it through energy and respecting the animal as a living being with a mind and soul of its own. This is an organic way of beginning an open and honest relationship with your animal. My approach to photographing an animal is to wait for them to be comfortable, and confident; until he or she is ready to show their personality and who they truly are from the inside out. My goal in this profession is to take my practiced skill and talent to give you a tangible memory of your special loved one.
My girl Amelia is my soul animal; we are connected in every possible way. I know first hand the drive to collect and preserve these moments and memories.
