Tell us about yourself and where you’re from!
I am a Toronto based fashion and portrait photography, originally from Edmundston, New Brunswick, Canada.
How did you get into photography?
I always had a camera in my hands while growing up, shooting everything as a hobby from landscapes, to fine art, to portraits, but it’s when I met a fashion photographer and started assisting him that I fell in love with fashion photography. It became my passion, so I concentrated only on fashion and portrait in the years to follow.
What is the story behind this photoshoot?
For this editorial, me and my team wanted to create victorian era inspired but with a more actual, contemporary twist.
What does taking photos mean to you?
Photography is a way of expressing myself as an artist.
Why did you choose to become a photographer, above all else?
I never planned on becoming a photographer (as a child I always wanted to be a writer) so it just happened that my passion for photography grew more and more.
Who or what is your main inspiration?
I get inspired by a lot of different things. Sometimes it’s from a place, sometimes it’s from an artist’s work or films. Sometimes I get an specific idea in mind based on what I am feeling or going through at that moment.
If you could do a photoshoot anywhere in the world, where would it be?
So many places!! But If I had to choose one, I would love to do a fashion shoot in the mountains, like the Alps or the Rockies.
What gear do you use?
I shoot mostly with a medium format Mamiya 645 w Aptus II digital back, or sometimes with a Nikon D800.
Who are your favourite photographers right now?
So many! To name a few : Kesler Tran, Greg Swales, Ace Amir
Where will you be in 10 years time?
I don’t know for sure, but if not still in photography, I might be writing. 🙂
