“I have two passions, teaching, and photography. Combining these two passions has been incredibly rewarding for me.”
I love to teach, and I have been doing so for over 25 years! I believe that people learn best by doing, not by sitting passively in a classroom. My lessons, which can be done via Skype or in person, are structured so that you get time behind your camera to practice techniques and ask questions during your session.
Whether you are a beginner or intermediate photographer, I would love to customize a lesson plan for you. Topics include: mastering camera settings and learning how to take control of your camera, how to see creatively and compose artistically, how to create images using long exposures, night photography techniques, street photography techniques, macro techniques, and how to work with Lightroom and Photoshop.

What I like to Shoot
Coming from the west coast of Canada, I have always been drawn to wildlife and nature photography. However, I am also a structural engineer, so you will also find me shooting urban and architectural images as well. Most recently, I have fallen in love with street photography. I love to see the world through my camera’s lens. It forces me to see things differently than I would with just my eyes. I can capture light and time in a way that can not be seen otherwise.
