I took my first photograph with a Kodak Brownie when I was eight years old. When I was 14, my grandmother gave me her Leica 35 mm rangefinder camera and hand-held light meter. That's when I started to develop my true interest in photography.
My mother was a photographer and she taught me how to develop film and print black and white photographs in her darkroom in the basement of our home.
I took artistic photographs in my late teens and early twenties, but then I started a career as a school teacher and for many years I took tourist shots and the occasional artistic photograph.
Several years ago I decided to devote more time to photography. Since then I've been exploring conceptual photography and urban life as well as portraits and nature.
I use a Canon 6D Mark ii DSLR with Sigma 50 mm f/1.4 and 85 mm f/1.4 lenses.
I live in Montreal, Canada.
