I am a photographer and environmental artist creating images of site-specific installations, landscapes and object studies that speak to the natural world and Man’s impact upon it. My projects flow between reality and illusion and I employ multiple photographic techniques including traditional film and alternative processes to contemporary digital technology and post-photographic methodology.
Commissions, typically portraiture, corporate and advertising assignments, are also important aspects of my career and I have been fortunate to work with many of Canada's top organizations over the last 15 years.
Originally from Cortes Island, a remote community of 800 residents in Canada's Pacific Northwest, I was raised on a small family farm surrounded by forest and ocean. My photography is grounded in this rural upbringing, which emphasized the importance of a harmonious relationship between people and the environment. This point of departure continues to inform my working life.

Spectral remains of the old forest peek through gaps in new growth—a daunting reminder of one family's part in British Columbia's forest industry.
