I'm a creative photographer in Montreal, Canada.
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 developed my passion for photography.
My mother was a portrait and nature photographer. She taught me to develop film and print black and white photographs in her darkroom in the basement of our house.
I eventually pursued a career as a teacher and for many years I only took photographs when I was on vacation.
Several years ago I decided to devote more time to photography. I renewed my interest in portraits and nature. I also turned my attention to conceptual photography, urban life, and art and design.
I use a Canon 6D Mark ii DSLR with Sigma 50 mm f/1.4 and Canon 85 mm f/1.8 lenses.
