I am a scientist by training and trade, and a spare-time photographer. I shoot motorsports, events, stock photography, some wildlife and scientific themed material. For the past seven years I have been a credentialed photographer for Honda Indy Toronto, covering the race weekend and pre-race activities, which explains the photograph above (thanks, Rick!). More about me can be found here. More of my best shots are in my Portfolio collection.

Don’t ask me to shoot your wedding – your special day is too precious for us to mess it up like that.

I use Nikon cameras and Nikkor and Sigma lenses. For fun, I also use a variety of film cameras including a 1937 Voigtländer Brillant, a 1958 Agfa Silette LK, and an early 1970’s Voigtländer VF-101. You can read more about those cameras here, here, and here. A complete gallery of my film arsenal is in this Flickr set, and the results are in this collection. Some medium format film photographs are also on 500px.
