I photograph because I love people, I love having the ability to freeze a moment in time and I love being able to express myself, creatively, through my photography.
I am in business for myself because I love the freedom, I love to set my own boundaries, and I love being able to create something really extraordinary for other people.
I have been in business for 5 years, as a professional photographer, and it has been a remarkable journey. I have met some amazing people along the way, some of which have become very good friends. I have photographed some amazing couples, families and individuals, and I have had the pleasure of getting involved with a number of great organizations and associations.
I do it all for the love of business, the love of photography, and the love of being able to provide value for other people.
I was recently recognized for all of my efforts, at the Welland/Pelham Chamber of Commerce Ruby Awards. I am honoured to have been the recipient of the RBC Financial Group Business Award. The RBC Financial Group Business Award is described as follows:
This award will be presented to an individual within an organization, who has been instrumental in the organization achieving financial success, experiencing continuous growth, producing/offering a dependable product/service, and providing an outstanding workplace for its employees.
