First and foremost, I'm a motor-racing fanatic - an avid follower of many forms of motorsports, as evidenced by the thousands of images populating my site. I've had a huge interest in fast cars for as long as I could remember and the bug really bit when I attended my first live race event, the 1983 Canadian GP. However, it quickly transpired that simply watching the cars from the stands didn't satisfy me completely. So I coupled my love of art and photography with my keen interest in all things mechanical, and what started out as a hobby has become an all-consuming passion to capture the full spectrum of colour, speed and beauty that is the world of motor racing.

Over the ensuing years, I've had the opportunity to visit many iconic circuits within Canada and abroad (most notably, Spa-Francorchamps, Monza, Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve, Watkins Glen, Long Beach, Mosport, Toronto, Circuit Mont-Tremblant and Trois Rivieres) - all important and with long, rich histories that have contributed to the annals of local and international motorized competition. Artistically speaking, each circuit has presented its particular characteristics and photographic challenges that have allowed me to hone my craft and personal style, all the while amassing a wealth of experience and images along the way.

This unwavering passion for motor racing and photography has ultimately elevated me to an increased level of performance and exposure. My past work has included publication in Photo Life and Today's Photographer magazines and features in books on Ferrari and Gilles Villeneuve, authored by expert Hungarian journalist Károly Méhes. Additionally, many of my images figured on canadianracers.com, canadiankartingnews.com and painkillers.ca - Canadian websites that cater(ed) to car enthusiasts and help(ed) promote Canadian racing talent through their ascents to international competition. I've also contributed images to dailies The Montreal Gazette and le Journal de Montréal, the official Bike & Tattoo Show website and have supplied photo content to auto123 and Motorsport.com websites over the years. Further, I've had the honour and pleasure of being featured in art/photo exhibits surrounding GP festivities in Montreal - most recently during the outdoor exhibit in 2017 celebrating fifty years of F1 in Canada. Lastly, I served as official photographer of the CTCC series over several seasons.

Presently, I continue to freelance as a senior photographer (since 1999) for Inside Track Communications, publishers of Inside Track, Inside MotoX and Inside Motorcycles magazines, and serve as official photographer for their annual Motorama Custom Car and Motor Sports Expo. Concurrently I also provide racing images for European agencies ATP, DJV and MSPB, with my work additionally being available via the following notable sources: Getty Images, Alamy, Shutterstock, Imago and Belga. These associations have allowed my images to feature on prominent websites such as GQ, WTA, MSN, Yahoo!, MotorSport Magazine, ABC and ESPN to name a few. Lastly, I collaborate extensively with the Musée Gilles-Villeneuve, regularly providing photographic services and images for their various needs.
