I’m a Vancouver Canada based travel photojournalist and documentary photographer with 35-years professional photography experience. I started in photography as an advertising and corporate photographer and in 1987 moved to Milan, Italy where I lived and worked for 9-years as a fashion and advertising photographer. While in Italy I continued shooting travel and documentary photography.
My travel and documentary work is motivated by instinctive curiosity, wanderlust and showing the character the human spirit and the essence of place. My photography is a way of contributing to people’s appreciation and understanding of diverse cultures and their traditions.
I photograph people in their environment, especially traditional and indigenous people or people with lots of character who have interesting stories. My passion for photography has evolved into being a visual voice for all cultures and making a contribution to society.
