Life apprentice. 

 

Photography and filmmaking are some of my biggest passions.  I have forever been drawn to the fantastic world of cinema and the chaotic silence rendered to life by the art of photography.

 

Of French and Portuguese background, I grew up in an Anglophone context, in Ottawa, Canada, to be precise.  I have been based in Montreal for the past 16 years, where I completed a certificate in Video Production and a diploma Graphic Design at the Continuing Education program at Concordia University.  During this time, I followed some courses in photography. Darkroom courses were those that I preferred the most; I could spend hours working in near-darkness on my photos.  Today, I work mostly with digital, exploring with both a DSLR and Mirror-less Sony camera.  I also love experimenting with other forms of photography or image editors such as Adobe Photoshop.

 

I am passionate about art in its many forms.  This curiosity for learning and discovering the many cultural expressions of art fuels my passion for travel. To name a few, I've travelled to Brazil, Mexico, Costa Rica, many cities of the USA, France, Spain (hiking the Camino de Santiago, an 800km walk), Portugal, Sweden, UK. Closer to home, I have travelled by car across Canada, from Abbotsford, BC to Gaspé, QC. 

 

They say, “A picture is worth a thousand words”; for me this so very true as sometimes words do not come easily but my camera does.
