About Me[edit]

I am a former Royal Canadian Navy Military photographer who documented the Canadian Armed Forces over a 24-year career. During that time I have travelled the world aboard ship, took part in several tours in Afghanistan, and spent 7 years in the Canadian Special Operations Forces. In my spare time I take photos of distinctive landmarks and landscapes and run PIXEO, a set of tools to help photographers find great places to take pictures.

I invite anyone to use the images I share here for any purpose whatsoever. I simply request that you please provide me photo credit when you use it as per the below instructions. If you live in the Ottawa area, I am also available to shoot. I do not charge to take photos and will happily shoot for free if the subject is interesting or it is for a good cause. So, if you are a performer, have an interesting idea for a shoot, are a charity that needs an event photographer, or just want to invite me to shoot, please send a message to I have shot for free for a number of Ottawa events such as the Saunder's Farm Haunted Attraction, the Terry Fox Foundation, Muscular Dystrophy Canada, and the Ottawa Christmas Market.
