1. Tell us about yourself.
I am Canadian born living in Dallas, Texas
- 2. How did you discover your love for photography?
My Dad was an amateur photographer but that wasn’t the inspiration. I am not sure, I picked up a camera in high school and it opened doors in my mind that I wanted to explore. When I got to college, I got a job doing party pics at Frat parties which helped pay my way through school. Then I was enlightened by a seminar that a professor put on that featured four successful photographers. I was intrigued that you could see the world and different cultures and that set me down the path of a life I hoped would be full of adventure and discovery and that proved to be true.
3. What inspires you and your work?
I am inspired by people and positivity. I enjoy exploring and meeting people and making them look great.
- 4. Why did you choose broncolor?
I initially chose Broncolor for its fast recycle time.
- 5. What is your favorite broncolor tool?
Ah, there are a few. I love the giant Para, I love the fresnel head, there is some head we have that I will need to find the name of for you as well. It is always fun to play with non-traditional accessories.
- 6. How would you describe your “lighting style”?
My lighting style evolves a lot, I like to experiment and I am a student of great lighting in movies. I really try to light a scene in a way that helps create a feeling or tells a story.
