Curious, passionate about art and with a strong drive to learn about culture and history, I have always used photography as a means of exploration. From photographing processions in Sevilla, Spain, dance shows across Europe, to weddings in France, England and Canada, I have accumulated depth professional experiences in fashion, wedding photography, and contemporary dance.

  In the centre of my work is always one mantra: respect the moment. Respecting the moment for me is what should always be first as it obliges oneself to take the pulse of the situation and to be at the right time and the right place without disturbing the subject. 

  Fluent in English, French and Spanish, I made a point in my professional years to be open to other cultures and sensibilities while developing my own. Now, living in Vancouver's lower mainland, I'm continuing this learning process by studying Punjabi.
