A portrait, documentary and fine arts photographer based in Montreal, I freelance for advertising agencies, publications, and non-profit organizations. My projects have been published and exhibited internationally, with the aim to support, connect, inspire & educate communities. In recent years I have been sharing my passion for photography by facilitating informal photography workshops and cultural mediation activities for various schools and communities in Canada & abroad.

Creative Approach and Experiences Offered

My photography workshops aim to provide a creative space for photographic exploration, team-building, communication and self-expression. Participants learn about photography and the artistic practice of a professional photographer. After learning the basic concepts of photography, participants go out to visually explore their lives and communities. Workshops can be general or focused on a particular theme (wellness, identity, resilience) or creative technique (sun prints, pinhole cameras, macro nature photography, etc). I have conducted informal workshops for various communities and different age groups, in Canada and abroad, with the aim of helping participants explore and develop their unique visual voice. The resulting visual explorations typically culminate in an online or printed exhibition to share with the public.
