Photographer (Mississauga, ON, Canada)
- I like long walks on the beach, Caribbean sunsets, frozen drinks in pool bars.... Music has always been an integral part of my life. My head started banging back in the (gasp) late seventies, and hasn’t stopped yet. Once I got into photography a few friends asked me to shoot their bands at a show. Things just sort of fell into place after that. I try to capture the feeling at a concert in an image.
