“The allotted function of art is not, as is often assumed, to put across ideas, to propagate thoughts, to serve as an example. The aim of art is to prepare a person for death, to plough and harrow his soul, rendering it capable of turning to good.”
- Russian filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky
I was thrilled this week to have an editorial featured in creative lifestyle magazine Elegant. We shot this in Brick Lane, London, in two hours flat. Quite a team.

In the West Village NYC with Lindsay Hafner, new friend and future teammate. Looking forward to working with this woman.
Life in front of the monitor, with my how-long-have-I-been-working-in-Lightroom face included for free.
I met up with Yulia of @makeitinny blog in New York City last week, and what started as a casual shoot soon turned into a fascinating, several-hour conversation. The city doesn’t get much better than this.
Certain moments in ballet are like haikus of motion. This image is of the dance of the Courtiers, in the Oakville School of Ballet’s 2018 production of The Nutcracker.
A favourite image from an evening I spent shooting and talking with singer and musician Jacqueline Lieurance in Manhattan’s Chelsea district, back in August 2017.
From an online course project I made recently with the wonderful Claudia van Oortmerssen. I’m taking this course with the intent of seeing how it shakes up and changes my approach to the craft. There’s nothing worse than settling into a too-comfortable habit. Always stretch.
Impending rain. A stretch of Prince Edward Island’s north shore darkens with the rapid approach of a storm cloud. August 2018.
