In my fine art minimalist photography, I strive to capture the essence of simplicity and evoke a sense of calm and tranquility. I am fascinated by the power of minimalism to distill a scene down to its most essential elements, stripping away distractions and leaving behind a pure visual experience.

I approach each photograph with a meticulous attention to detail, carefully composing my shots to create a sense of balance and harmony. Every line, curve, and negative space is thoughtfully considered, aiming to achieve a visual balance that is pleasing to the eye.


I believe that simplicity can be incredibly powerful, and it is through the removal of extraneous elements that the true essence of a subject can be revealed.

Ultimately, my goal as  fine art photographer is to transport the viewer to a place of quiet reflection and introspection.


I want my images to serve as a visual respite from the chaos of the modern world, inviting viewers to slow down, take a breath, and find solace in the simplicity that surrounds us.

Through the interplay of light and shadow, form and space, I aim to create images that resonate on an emotional level, leaving a lasting impression and igniting a dialogue between the viewer and the photograph. I hope that my work not only captivates the eye but also encourages a deeper exploration of our own perceptions and experiences.

My work has been shown in galleries in Canada, Europe and the US and has also been published in Noir Magazine, Artistonish, Black and White Minimalist Magazine and Black and White Magazine in the UK.
