Montreal Based Photographer

I am a dreamer.
Dreams drive me, inspire me and push me to challenge the impossible in creating unique compelling artwork.

I am an artist.
From dreams to concepts, onto plans and preparations, ending with shooting and editing, every bit is done with passion and enthusiasm for the pure love of it. The job is never done until it's done.

I am a professional.
Equipped and experienced to perform and deliver above expectations.

Goodbye Toronto
	Shot on my last day in Toronto on the coldest day of the year. At -25 degrees + wind, Mandy Lam, Parkour artist, stood defiantly on scaffolding 65 stories high. 

	Being up high, above the world is as liberating as it is humbling… i wish that one day you guys get to experience it too. 

	Hope to see you guys in my upcoming talks at Imaging USA and Mystic Seminars!

The key
	So often we search for THE key, that one little thing that will be thequick and easy way into the world of success. Time and time again though, after every milestone that is hit, the realization is that there is no fast track… that the true key is just hard work.
