As the ninth anniversary of my career in professional photography approaches, I find myself questioning my motives, as I imagine all artists do. What is my purpose as a photographer? What originally inspired my love for this art?
I’m always led back to one word, Adventure. My earliest Fine Art photo sessions were spontaneous road trips to destinations unknown, with a car full of inspired souls, chasing sunsets. I’ve been blessed to travel and explore the beautiful landscapes of Nova Scotia and Newfoundland, where I grew up climbing trees, frolicking through fields, fairy hunting, swimming in search of aquatic creatures, and making camp-fires with my little brothers and cousins. Looking back at those worn out Polaroids rekindles that feeling of floating in the sea watching sparks fly across the midnight sky without a worry in the world. Every time I go on a new adventure, I feel this childlike warmth replenish my heart.
“I must go to Nature disarmed of perspective and stretch myself like a large transparent canvas upon her in the hope that, my submission being perfect, the imprint of a beautiful and useful truth would be taken.” — John Updike
This is what I aim to reflect in my subjects, the bright light flickering within their souls, behind their eyes. Set free your inner-child that’s been patiently waiting for recess. I want to capture your untamed soul so that you can see how truly beautiful you are, now and in the future.
Adventure Sessions: Connect with Mother Earth. Unleash your essence. Capture your soul. Lets make some magic.
