"Chasing Light"

Artist Statement 

I’m an experienced and extremely passionate landscape photographer that resides here in Fernie. I travel all around the world in search of photography, constantly chasing the light and conditions.

In my work, I like to employ a healthy amount of color and contrast. Leading lines, aesthetically pleasing ways to guide the eyes, and photographs that “jump off the page”.
