Summer adventures in Toronto, ON 2017

   Welcome to photography page, which I decided to add because aside from a love of music, I've always been interested in images and the stories that they tell. In fact I often use mental pictures as a performance tool to help with visualization or memorization. As a boy I spent a fair bit of time drawing and sketching, but because I was a musician, this passion sort of fell by the wayside. I'm not sure how junior high/high schools do it now, but at the time, it wasn't possible to take art and band class because they always competed for the same time slot in the schedule. Fast-forward the better part of two decades and I'm having a blast rediscovering that enjoyment of images, albeit in a new form. Now that I have little bit of gear, I felt like showcasing a bit of that journey.

 

If you've visited my site before, you'll see that I've still got a few up from my trip to Yukon and more from my summer in Toronto. But further down there is a small collection of my most favorite most  recent shots, including locations like Calgary, Medicine Hat, Canmore, Montreal and my home town of Winnipeg. I will continue to add to it so keep an eye from time time. 

 

These days, I am  considering getting into the profession part time. Most singers know you need at least one "side hustle", and this seems to be something that keeps knocking at the door. So for the time being, I'm looking for learning opportunities and I want to shoot as big a variety of situations and scenarios as I can.  If you know of any amazing locations, or if you're interested in booking an hour or two yourself, let me know. We'll see what kinds of stories we can create!
