How long have you lived in Calgary?
I’ve lived in Calgary my whole life, 26 years. I am one of the rare ones born and raised in this city!
What inspires you to take photos?
Other people! I really got into photography through Instagram. I would see people portray the city I live in from new angles and in unconventional ways that it inspired me to do the same. I love the challenge of going some place I’ve been a million times and trying to capture it in a new light.
How have you seen the Calgary Scene emerged over the past few years?
