THE ARTIST

I am a versatile self-taught photographer based in the beautiful islands of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.  I love shooting on almost everything but I always have a soft spots for people, nature and landscape. My style in photography is simple, passionate, daring and experimental (S.P.A.D.E).

The works you see you in my website may or may not resonate to your taste and these include my finish products on all my services.  This is because photography is subjective, meaning my works only works well to my own  personal skill and likings, but may not be appealing to others aesthetic perceptions.   This is my basic precept that I want my client to understand.  If you get my services, a mutual respect, trust and professionalism are essential to make everything works.

For me, photography is an avenue to express ones creativity, it is an art and an extension of our creative mind.  Our camera is just a tool that physicalize what our eyes can see. As the saying goes: "The camera itself will not create a beautiful image, it's the person behind that gear who makes a beautiful compelling story-telling photographs" ,  and I can't stress those statements long enough.
