My interest in photography grew out of my love for music.
I went to a lot of concerts in my hometown of Toronto, and started shooting because of a real urge to capture that “decisive moment.” My first book, Live in Concert—10 years of Rock and Roll, was a collection of those moments.
After my book came out, I transitioned into doing a lot of traveling. My first big trip was an overland journey to Africa, a continent that remains one of my favorite photographic destinations.
I was away for a year, driving from Amsterdam to Cape Town, South Africa all the while creating a substantial body of work. Much of my early African work was photographed with infrared film, which created a new look and feel beyond traditional wildlife images.
After my trip to Africa, my interest in travel photography was ignited. This has kept me moving around the globe, exploring different cultures and countries and capturing unique moments.

My pursuit of emotionally resonant images has led me to Papua, New Guinea, Vietnam, Greenland, Cuba, China, across Europe and to at twenty-two countries in Africa.
My most recently published book, Cuba, This Moment, Exactly So, includes 250 black and white and color images from my twenty years of shooting in Cuba. It also features thirty-two micro stories from two-time Pulitzer Prize nominated poet Brian Andreas, a foreword by noted author Pico Iyer and an introduction by art historian Gerry Badger. The limited edition version includes a Cuban Music compilation of sixty songs.
My book has won several awards including a Gold award from IPPY—Independent Publisher Book Awards for Photography, a Silver from IBPA Benjamin Franklin Award for Art/Photography, Foreword Reviews 2015 INDIEFAB Book of the Year and 1st Place Photo Book from The Photo Awards.
My commercial and fine art images have been exhibited in galleries across Europe and America. They have been used commercially for annual reports, billboards, television and websites, as well as worldwide advertising campaigns. Eleven fine art posters have been published of my travel work.
I’ve won the prestigious Travel Photographer of the Year award, plus numerous commercial photography awards, and lead travel photography workshops around the world.
