I am a London, UK, based photographer who is originally from Canada. My passion for photography started in my mid-teens and flourished when I was at university and had access to the student darkroom. I am mainly a self-taught photographer.

I tend to focus on B&W and architectural photography, and try to capture a particular mood or story, or taking what is often overlooked as ordinary and show it in a different light.

I hadn’t been to the Museum for a number of years, and had initially thought I would take some photos of the surrounding modern architecture of the City. / However, sometimes something unexpected catches your eye and captures your imagination. What really caught my eye…

Angel on Ladder - the story behind the image

Bath is one of those historical and architectural gems that I enjoy visiting and revisiting. Steeped in history and Georgian architecture, which is one of my favourite styles, the gothic Bath Abbey has also caught my eye. / Although the symmetry and geometry of the Georgian architecture is something that my photographic eye loves to capture, I find the Abbey, particularly intricate carvings on th…
