I'm a Canadian photographer located near Toronto (Ontario). For many years I have had a keen interest in both birds and photography - uniting my passions for photography and technology with those for nature and the beauty of flying. Holding a private pilot's license ensures that my primary enjoyment comes from aspects relating to flight, and therefore bird photography. Despite that, I try to explore other areas such as landscapes, macro, and mammal photography when opportunities arise. Regardless of the subject, my desire is to make powerful, visually arresting, razor sharp images.

While good equipment doesn't necessarily make someone a photographer, it definitely improves your odds of success. I'm currently using the following Canon equipment:

1D X
5D Mark III
24-70 2.8 II
70-200 f2.8 IS II
300 f2.8 IS
600 f4 IS II
1.4x/2x III extenders
600EX flash/Gitzo 5541LS tripod/many other accessories

All images are available for purchase as a print, or for publication and licensing. Please contact me if you would like more details - and bear in mind that I have many photos in my archives that are not shown here. I might have just what you're looking for.

My work has been published in Audubon, Birder's World (now BirdWatching), National Geographic Magazine, ofo.ca, and Outdoor Photography Canada, as well as various non-profit venues including bird atlases, ebirdr.com and educational outreach programs.  I am also a contributing photographer to BirdWatching. More publication is always in the works. In addition, I have won numerous contests, awards and other honours on various photography forums.
