Travel has always been a part of my life. Exploring distant lands, meeting different people, and learning about their culture and traditions is what I consider to be one of the most important things a person can do. I’ve had the fortune of doing just that for the better part of 4 decades. I’ve been all over 6 continents, and close to 100 countries, and have no intention of stopping now.
I am originally from Canada, which I still consider home. My current base is Bangkok, which allows me to travel around Asia with relative ease. Everywhere that I visit in this area provides me with tremendous experiences and collections of images that I love to share with the world. Previous to living in Thailand, I spent a couple of years living in Beijing and Hong Kong, both of which were wonderful places to experience.
My work is mostly travel-related photography, with a slant towards cultural explorations. I truly enjoy getting to know the people and cultures that I discover, and try to portray what I see in the photographs I make.
Although most of the images are created on location, I am equally adept at studio work, particularly in portraiture. I cut my photographic teeth on portraiture, by learning (and eventually teaching) lighting techniques in a studio environment. I earned Licentiates from both the British Institute of Professional Photography and the Master Photographers Association, from my portraiture work.
I work with Photo Workshop Adventures – one of the world’s leading photography tour companies. I lead small-group luxury tours in Asia, and also in Canada. If you’re interested in traveling to Asia with a small group of like-minded photography enthusiasts, you won’t find a better collection of tours to choose from. I will take you through some of the most incredible places in China, Japan, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Bhutan, Laos and Indonesia. You’ll experience the cultures, great food, and great hotels while perfecting your photography skills and making new friends. Check out the group tours I lead here.
If you prefer to travel alone, but still want to become a better photographer, then you should consider booking travel through Private Photo Tours. I create Personalized Photography Experiences specifically for you. The private guided tour would provide you with exactly what you’re looking for as a photographer, without the need to travel with a group. All budget ranges can be accommodated, and no trip is too small, or too big to arrange.
