Meet Eye Meets World

Who I am...

I'm a storyteller. I tell stories in pixels and microdots of ink, stories captured in mere fractions of a second that stay with you for days, weeks and years. Some people paint, some write, some sculpt. I photograph. Through my viewfinder, I observe and capture moments in time that matter to me and hopefully to you. 

Since childhood, I've been enamored with photography, first as a young hobbyist, then as a serious amateur and in recent years as a professional photographer. More often than not I'm telling photographic stories of the natural world and connections to it, both animal and human. Like all photographers – and moths –  I'm drawn to the light, and it's rare that I'll pass up a chance to photograph any magically-lit subject. 

My 2017 move with my wife (and magic light spotter extraordinaire), Kathy, to the picturesque Ottawa Valley town of Almonte has opened new photographic doors and opportunities. Behind those open doors have been open arms and I feel very fortunate to have stumbled into a wonderfully creative community that has so warmly embraced and supported my photography.

When I'm not capturing or editing photos, I continue to work as a freelance digital illustrator and graphic artist (, a career that's spanned three decades working for major publications including: Los Angeles Times, Men's Health, Popular Science, Sports Illustrated, Consumer Reports, Newsweek, Globe and Mail and dozens more.

It's an image conscious existence. ;-)

What I can do for you...

Whether you're looking for beautifully framed or canvas wall art, or an unframed museum-quality fine art print, all Gallery photos are available for purchase through Shop EMW in sizes from 8"x12" to 24"x36". Have a special printing inquiry or need custom sizes or quantities? Don't see the exact image you're looking for? Contact me by phone or email.

Creating good-looking photography is only half my mission. Making your event, business, or organization look good is the other half, just as I've done for the Municipality of Mississippi MillsMississippi Valley Textile Museum, The Ten CollectiveAlmonte Lobby BarSteel City Rovers , Running Room Canada and the University of Saskatchewan Huskies. All clients have have round-the-clock, password-protected access to your image proofs and final art through Eye Meets World's convenient online proofing portal.

Photo shoots are awesome, but it's not always what my clients are looking for. Need documentary photography? Photo restoration? Photo Editing? Photo compositing or Photoshop work? Bring it on.

Editorial commissions are welcome too. I'm looking at you Edible Ottawa! ;-)

I treat all my clients as I would my own family – honestly, transparently and authentically.

That's what I can do for you.
