Industrial. Institutional. Abandoned.

I am a self-trained photographer, urban planner, and bow tie & fedora enthusiast in Toronto, Canada. With a background in urban design, I look for patterns, lines, and forms that give structure to urban environments. 

I have exhibited, solo and in group exhibitions, in Toronto at the Art Gallery of Ontario Rental + Sales Gallery, Toronto Image Works, galleryDK, gallerywest, art101, Pearson International AirportHangman Gallery, Twist Gallery, Akasha Art Projects, and others. I have also exhibited at the Department of Canadian Heritage, and in several office galleries.

In the fall of 2008 I switched to medium and large format film only for my photography. In addition to greatly loving the feel and deliberative process of shooting film, the resulting negatives allow for high resolution scans that greatly exceed the capacity of current digital technologies. I do all of my own post processing, with the exception of high-resolution drum scans (when utilized). At present, my prints are usually chromagenic prints done through Toronto Image Works. All of my framing is custom and done by The Framing Depot.

I am a founding member of the DK Photo Group, and a former co-owner of galleryDK. In 2009, the DKPG was the subject of a 6-episode television series called PhotoXplorers. My photos are included in several corporate and private collections in North America and are available through the Art Gallery of Ontario Rental and Sales Gallery, and Eye Buy Art

I'm an occasional guest on a couple photography podcasts, Photonetcast and Tips from the Top Floor.
