To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.
— Oscar Wilde

I like to tell a story through my images, it's how I've learned to express myself. I've always loved writing story's of places I've imagined, and documenting others lives, and my own family's lives through photography. I have been enjoying photography since high school, working in the darkroom, with film, discovering what was on each negative.  I continued with photography, evolved into digital, and eventually opened my business which over the years has evolved into what it is today. You'll find me up at the break of day, off on an adventure in the great outdoors, either on my bike or out for a jog. The sun hasn't quite peeked on the horizon and I've already got my camera ready for action. 

 My landscape photography: I began looking for something to show the beauty I was seeing each and every morning, wanting to convey this to my family and friends, I would post these everyday images on my Facebook or Instagram, and friends began looking for them each and everyday.

All of these images are taken in the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia, primarily in the Kingston, Greenwood area. I enjoy finding that little beam of light trying to shine through the fog, and the trees, I enjoy hearing the birds, or seeing an eagle perched on a tree by the Annapolis River.  It's the little things that not everyone sees, it's the details that I like to find.  

I hope you enjoy the site, and feel free to drop me a line!


This is where my heart is, by the ocean, or somewhere in nature.
