The Reason I Love My Job

In every job I have ever had, from my first job at the age of 15 in a butcher shop, to now selling Toronto Real Estate, I have always been in the business of helping people. That was a little bit of a run-on sentence, but what I am trying to say is that in […]

Four Ways to Track Your World Travel

A few years ago, I was telling someone about some of my travels and they said that my travel experience is like Johnny Cash’s song “I’ve been everywhere”. The problem (if you can call it a problem) is that once I started to track the places I have been, increasing that number became a little […]

Who is your Hero?

Everyone has a hero, someone they call their inspiration. Mine has always been and always will be my father. I see so much of him in absolutely everything I do. From the way I talk, to the way I negotiate, even the way I laugh! While watching the BBC Television show “Top Gear”, I recently […]

Welcome Back!

It has been almost two years since my last entry in my blog, so I must apologize up front. From the magic of Google analytics, I know that I have thousands of readers in over 40 countries. This is largely thanks to my TV news appearances, articles published and all of the other publicity when […]

Burning Devotion

From the moment my plane touched down in Varanasi, I could tell I was going to capture some amazing images during my time here. The drive from the Airport to my hotel was just under an hour and I could not resist hanging out of the window and shooting hundreds of frames. Countless pilgrims make […]

The Untouchables 2

Yesterday, Solomon got a good idea of what I was interested in photographing here in India and as you all know, it is neither the riches of Bollywood nor the inside of shopping malls. He suggested a few different places to photograph a lot of the “Untouchables”; the lowest caste in India, holding little or […]

Life in Mumbai 2

Well it’s only the first day of this year’s expedition and I have already captured some amazing images! I arrived yesterday afternoon and after 24 hours of travel and then being caught for two hours in Mumbai traffic, the only thing on my mind was to sleep off my jetlag. After recharging my batteries for […]

Rain Rain, Go Away!

For those of you who follow me on Twitter, you may have noticed the odd Tweet about my “No-Rain Streak”. In my five years as a wedding photographer, it has never rained on me. Ever. Even the other photographers I work with at Boston Avenue cannot believe my luck and are still skeptical every time they […]

Picture Perfect in Paradise

Earlier this year, I was hired to accompany Bhavika and Neil to Dreams La Romana in the Dominican Republic to capture their week-long wedding celebration… And this group knew how to celebrate! I had only met with them a few times during their consultations but even from then, I could tell that this was going […]

Love Crosses Oceans

If you watch the news, you know how cruel and ugly our world can be, but once in a while, you hear a story that warms your heart so much that it makes you actually believe in destiny. Kathy and George met in Greece while she was on holiday with friends. Out of all of […]

The Gateway to the Orient

It seems like every time I write a new article, I am starting with an apology for the length of time since my last one. Let’s change things up a bit this time and skip that! This summer has been the busiest season for me yet. Ever since I arrived home from Asia it has […]

A City Made of Gold

First of all, I have to apologise to all of my regular readers. I have been moving through Asia so quickly that I have barely had time to sleep, let alone time to update the blog. I am in Saigon, 3 weeks into my trip and I have finally found a small amount of time […]

Keeping up with the Markarians

In January, I was flown to Los Angeles to capture what was to be an epic Armenian celebration. Guests had flown in from as far as Dubai and Iran to attend this opulent event! Linda and Carlo have known each other since they were just children. Fate would bring them together years later as they […]

Promo Video

Getting amped up for wedding season got me looking through my unsorted video… Then that got me looking through massive amounts of images… Since I was too busy this winter to take off for another 5 month expedition, I figured I would reflect on my last three instead. What was produced was a frankenstien creation […]

Stir it Up

Over the last three years, I have become somewhat of a destination wedding specialist. In November, I had the privilege of joining Angie and Shawn in Jamaica to capture their nuptials. Angie’s sweet disposition is a perfect complement to Shawn’s hilarious sense of humour and infectious laugh. Having never traveled to Jamaica, I was excited […]
