"Memory is the diary we all carry about with us"
Photographs are invaluable treasures, they allow our imagination to travel back in time and relive moments we could never reproduce. I am not technical nor do I want my photos to be. My goal was simple, to capture people's emotions when they view the photographs I have taken by allowing the photographs themselves to tell their own story.
Over the years, I have worked in various interior design firms, private and public sectors, as well as international high-end brands that have allowed me to broaden my skills and knowledge in various areas. Particularly, my professional journey had defined my aesthetic, style and people-to-people skills which I consider to be contributory assets to my foundation as a photographer.
When I was in high school I had a part-time job that had allowed me to explore and discover various parts of the world. I understood the power of social media then and had used it to my advantage by sharing my experiences with my friends, family and everyone else who was looking for inspiration and courage to travel by themselves. I decided to capture unique moments with my GoPro to be able to share those extraordinary experiences with everyone. The idea was to take everyone with me on my journeys by showing them what I was seeing, what I was eating, where I was going, the culture, the vibe, and the local lifestyle.
I have humbly evolved from being the family's self-proclaimed official photographer to now a more experienced photographer capturing fashion week runways in Toronto and London, private and public events such as concerts, festivals, celebrations, and sporting events, which have allowed me to work with various artists, brands, and organisations. I use photography as a form of expression and an outlet from law school.
I have realised that seeing the emotions and feelings of people when they look at my work became a satisfaction and encouragement for me to become better. I continuously learn and hone my artistry every day to preserve our most valuable treasures to seize the day.
