I began Raven Eye Photography in the early 2000’s, and over time grew it into a photography conglomerate. Operating Raven Eye Photography has allowed me to discover many parts of the world, travelling to over 30 countries covering action sports, adventure races, tourism jobs and high-end commercial work. From peaks to valleys, jungles to mega cities, I developed a creative sense of photography that is truly a product of the world and the experiences they have given me. I have always had a strong passion for photography, naturally evolving from growing up in Fernie, and wanted to share these adventures and scenery of the surrounding area with others.

But it seems the light has finally appeared at the end of the tunnel.
