I am an internationally published photographer based in Toronto, Canada.
In the early 2000's, I was employed as a full-time staff photographer for Simon Wilkinson at SWpix in Yorkshire, England. While in England, I was the official photographer for various organizations and sports teams including The Rugby Football League, Yorkshire County Cricket Club, British Swimming and the Scottish Rugby Union.
I returned to Canada in 2013 with my family to run my own business. I am fortunate to have Getty Images as one of my main clients whom I photograph most major professional sporting events and teams in the Toronto area for.
In early 2020, I had the pleasure of taking on the role of Team Photographer for the Toronto Raptors of the NBA.
My images have regularly appeared in publications such as The Times of London, Guardian, Independent, Le Monde, L'Equipe, The Australian, Sydney Morning Herald, The New York Times, The Globe and Mail, National Post and Sports Illustrated.
Clients I continue to have a working relationship with include Getty Images, Press Association, SWpix, Sportsfile, NBA, Toronto Raptors, MLSE, ASM Global, Canadian Olympic Committee and The Rugby Football League.
Major events covered include the London 2012 and Rio 2016 Olympics, PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics, 2007 Rugby World Cup, 2015 FIFA Womens World Cup, 2008 & 2013 Rugby League World Cups, 2010 Delhi Commonwealth Games, 2013 IPC World Swimming Championships and 4 FINA Aquatics World Championships in Melbourne, Rome, Shanghai & Barcelona.
