THE BIG WHY
Through the lens, I capture more than just images; I seize moments of truth that ignite the fire of conservation. With each click, I become a storyteller, advocate, and guardian of nature's fragile beauty. Photography is my weapon, and with it, I defend the wild places and creatures that make our world whole.
Every click of my camera is fueled by a passion to protect our planet's precious ecosystems. As a Nature Conservation Photographer, I pour my heart and soul into capturing images that not only inspire awe but also ignite vital conversations about environmental protection. Despite the financial challenges I face, my commitment to safeguarding nature and wildlife remains unwavering. When you hire me, you're not just investing in stunning photographs; you're supporting a dedicated conservationist on a mission to make a difference. Together, let's capture moments that matter and preserve the beauty of our world for generations to come.

From the moment I held my first camera as a child, I knew that photography would be my lifelong passion. What began as simple snapshots of nature's wonders has blossomed into a fulfilling career spanning over a decade. In 2012, I took the leap into professional photography, and since then, I've embarked on a journey marked by diverse roles and countless memorable moments behind the lens. Whether instructing eager learners, fundraising for noble causes, capturing captivating commercial imagery, or preserving cherished personal portraits, each experience has shaped me as a photographer and as a person. Photography isn't just a job for me; it's a form of meditation—a way to connect deeply with the world around me. I am immensely grateful for the opportunities I've had to share my craft and make a positive impact. Through the funds raised by offering my photography services, I am able to fuel my passion for nature conservation, turning my love for photography into a force for good in the world.
What is your photography style? Do you work alone or with assistants?
I have a deep passion for capturing the beauty of moments through my photography. Rather than relying on verbal communication, I immerse myself in the atmosphere, seeking out the perfect interplay of light and timing to create genuine and heartfelt images. Whether I'm photographing pets, food, products, or people, my focus remains on preserving the authenticity of each moment. For subjects like pets, food, and products, I work independently, allowing the scene to unfold naturally without the need for words. However, when working with people, I collaborate with assistants who assist in directing poses and communicating with clients, ensuring a seamless and comfortable experience for everyone involved.
What types of photography services do you offer?
I am delighted to offer an array of services tailored to capture the cherished moments that you'll treasure for years to come. My offerings include pet photography, weddings, engagement shoots, food photography, behind-the-scenes captures, yoga sessions, and captivating portraits. Each service is crafted with care and dedication to ensure your memories are beautifully preserved.
Where are you located? Do you travel for photoshoots?
I'm a Vancouver Islander and I'm grateful to live and work on the unceded traditional territory of the Lekwungen-speaking peoples, also known as the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations. I enjoy exploring the beautiful British Columbia. I offer free travel between Sooke, Victoria, Sidney, and Duncan. For destinations elsewhere in British Columbia, I charge a flat $1000 to cover my travel and accommodation expenses.
