I feel very strongly about capturing food that looks tempting but real at the same time. Gone are the days when food had to be presented with an element of perfection. I feel its very important to include reality into my food photography. Although I have worked with food stylists and art directors, coming from a design background I now style and direct many of my food shoots.

Drinks... hmmm, has to contain coffee images, seeing that I am based in a very Italian neighbourhood in Montreal as well as being an avid Brit tea drinker. A 2016 collaboration with The Love of Gin, a blog specializing in small batch Gin, to create, style and shoot cocktail recipes, what's not to love. Its 5 o'clock somewhere....
In 2014 and 2015 I was delighted to be able to volunteer some photography for Santropol here in Montreal. Here are some images from I shot for them starting off with an amazing opportunity to shoot in a greenhouse that is situated on the top of a university roof in downtown Montreal, amazing light and so tranquil. As you scroll down there are images of the beehives in their garden and their annual Rue Fermier event.

Montreal is a city of festival and events, throughout the seasons there is always something going on. I am more of a details and fly on the wall event photographer, silently moving amongst spectators looking for that candid image that can set the theme in one shot.

Music is a big part of my life, some of my earliest shoots were back stage for music artists as well as photographing in numerous Jazz & Soul venues in London and I also shot at some of the best London nightclubs. Here in Montreal I am also part of the Rhythm is Rhythm project that is headed up with local DJ Nicola Torriero. I shoot for the website and radio show as well as provide head shots for several of the DJ's that have appeared on the show.
