Iā€™m a husband, a father, and a military photojournalist. When I started this business in 2010 my aim was just to pursue my passion in photography, a passion around the uniqueness of people. It was a fascination with the dynamics of light, art theory, and the intricate subtleties of human connections. Those were the things that worked to set me apart as a photographer, and those are the things that drive my passions in my work with Bend the Sun.

I also believe in service to others. I've served as a regular force member in the Canadian Armed Forces since 2007, joining as an Infantryman serving in 3rd Battalion - Royal Canadian Regiment, and later becoming an Imagery Technician (Photojournalist). My work with the military has taken me all around the world, extensively throughout North America, Europe and Asia, where I've photographed Prime Ministers, Presidents, and even our own British Royal family. 

Take a second to look at some of my military photography HERE, or by searching the Canadian Army's Flickr and Facebook posts. I also wrote the first ever Canadian Armed Forces photo essay called, "Ex Khaan Quest," about some of my work in Asia, feel free to check it out.

P.S. Here are a few photos of things that bless my life beyond words: my family. ...not to mention my customized Gibson B.B. King signature guitar, "Lucille," as well as my motorcycle "Orwell" (They're family too).
