When did you catch the travel bug?
Travel has always been a part of my life as my parents immigrated from England and we returned to England and Scotland often to visit family. My first big adventure was when I was 12. We lived on a sailboat for a year, travelling from Thunder Bay, ON to the Bahamas.
Where was a recent trip you took?
What’s your favourite photo from that trip?
Canon or Nikon?
What’s your favourite travel lens?
70-300mm. I love the freedom of capturing a scene without being right in the middle of it.
What else is in your camera bag?
I love my 85 1.8 and my 35 2.0.
Do you bring a tripod when you travel?
I travel super light so I usually leave my tripod at home. However, I’m about to take a course on night sky photography so I have a feeling my tripod will be making more trips with me 🙂
What are your best tips for travelling with photography equipment?
Take as little as you can and make sure you have a comfortable bag for carrying your gear.
Other than your passport and camera, what won’t you leave home without when you travel?
A notebook to record memories, contacts, suggestions from locals etc… (and a collapsable water bottle)!
What is your favourite genre of photography and why?
I love street/candid photography, especially capturing people doing their thing in their environment. I try my best to capture spontaneous moments while respecting the subject’s desire to be photographed or not.
What’s the best part about hosting a photo tour?
Meeting new people and working with other creatives to capture what we envision. I get excited to teach little tidbits of information I’ve learned over the years and I love being inspired by other photographers.
