Ottawa Event Photographer


Throughout the past decade, 

  • I have photographed hundreds of events — big and small.

  • My clients regularly convey their pleasure with my goods and services, as well as my work ethic in providing them. This is evidenced by their kind testimonials, positive word-of-mouth referrals, and loyal returns year-after-year.

  • Most of my work is local — serving the Ottawa-Carleton and Outaouais region.  Yet, on occasion, I also perform event photography across Canada (Vancouver, Toronto, Oshawa, Kingston, Montreal) for multi-national corporations.  If you’re willing, then I’m able.

  • If we’ve yet to work together, then please allow me to further demonstrate what I can do for you now.

One of my guiding mantras:

My photos of this CF-18 Hornet thrusting off a runway — and piloted by Captain Patrick Gobeil —​ perfectly defines my approach to photography, and how I put my passion into action with a ready, set, go mindset before a moment in time is gone

Ready, set
before it's gone


I know how to visualize where the action will be, and react accordingly to make sure I’m in the “zone of maximum possibility” to capture it.  


Once in position, I know how to analyze the lighting conditions available to me, and rapidly apply enduring principles of photography to calibrate my camera settings . ​


Once my camera settings are dialed in, my discerning eye and quick reflexes begin to click my camera into action, which can freeze motion at speeds up to 1/64,000ths of a second if needed — so, no event is too demanding for me and my gear!


One of the great powers of photography is that it can freeze a moment in time long after it is gone.   

So, I especially love photographing one-time moments that so very often occur in my event photography work.  

A few examples of how I photograph the ambiance of an event — with focus.
