Photojournalism

Operating as trustee of the public, and on behalf of various news wire services, my role is to report visually on significant events and the varied viewpoints in our common world. My primary goal is the faithful and comprehensive depiction of the subject at hand.  As photojournalists, we have the responsibility to document society and to preserve its history through images forever. Over the years I've captured Cranbrook and area first responders in action; working various accident, fire and conflict areas . Some of my images made news headlines nation wide.

"I'm simply there to tell a story through pictures but most importantly I want to convey to my viewers the truth" 
"I don't take photos to put in a box, I like to think I take photos to show the world the reality we live."
