Tell us a little bit about you? Where do you consider home?
Squamish has been my home for 10 years now, but I was born in Quebec.
Have you attended school/taken any courses for Photography?
Self taught, school has never really worked out for me. In the early days of my career I would spend a lot of time “de-constructing ” images, learning and trying to understand what made a great picture so much better than others…
Could you tell us something that few people know about you?
I play a LOT of guitar…like, hours everyday .
What do you think of the current state of the photography industry/where do you see it in 5 years?
I think we couldn’t live in a better world as photographers! EVERYTHING revolves around images theses days. Whether its social medias, TV, magazines, even our own self image, we are constantly bombarded with images. I hope to be shooting covers for VanityFair … lol

If you could be invisible for one day with your camera, where would you go and what would you shoot?
Thats a no brainer ,Im a dude so, the ladies room of course… lol.
