An avid photographer since the early 90’s, my first camera was a Minolta XD-5 35mm film. After a break from photography for some years I moved to digital. My first camera being a Pentax K100D Super. In 2008 I moved over to the Canon 40D and recently (2015) switched over to the Sony. I even still have my XD-5.
I was born on a small farm in rural Nova Scotia, and grew up on the East Coast of Canada. Since a young age, I’ve alway been interested in photography and would steal/borrow my dad’s film camera (Minolta XD-5) and take as many pictures as I could. As I didn’t have the money, I would buy the rolls of film to take pictures but often didn’t get them developed. Or I would put the roll aside to get developed later, only to forget.
As digital cameras came into the picture, I started to use them more and more, but only point & shoot cameras. I love digital photography. It offers all the things that film never could. Instant results; no more waiting to finish a roll, no trips to the drug store to get the film developed and then wait for its slow return.
In 2001, I moved from Nova Scotia to Ontario and started my migration from Kingston, Etobicoke, Mississauga, Toronto, Oshawa and finally found paradise in Dundas, Ontario. I meet my beautiful wife, Susan in Toronto and a few years later we were married and now have a wonderful daughter and a beautiful home in Dundas, Ontario.
In 2014, we moved to Dundas to open a Bed & Breakfasts at the west end of town, Dundas Glen Bed & Breakfast. It’s so wonderful to meet so many great people in Dundas and those who come through our B&B as guests and leave as friends.
In late 2015, 20two19 Photography started to get noticed through social media by local Dundas businesses, and have now worked with a number of businesses and professionals in town including the Shawn & Ed Brewing Company, Dundas Museum, Dundas, WIllow Salon, The Red Door Cucina, the Dundas Farmers' Market Jax Sweet Shoppe and others.
During the summer of 2017, my family has moved back to Nova Scotia and we bought a house in Canning, near Wolfville. There, we are opening a studio in house, Studio989.
In the Studio, not only will you see my printed photography but the Millinery and Jewellery design of my wife Susan.
