Born and raised in Montreal, Ian started his photography journey in High School as a Yearbook Photographer. When he was 18 he moved to Calgary Alberta where he started work in the Oil and Gas sector and spent 43 years, raising a family and continuing his photographic education.

Since 2008 Ian has been working as a semi-professional Family and Portrait photographer and made the leap to full time in 2020 when he relocated to Halifax in the middle of the pandemic.

Since moving to Halifax Ian has concentrated his focus on portrait work but has still found some time to explore Nova Scotia as his new home and is building a body of work with the focus on coastal imagery.

Ian is a proud member of the OFFBEAT Community, a creative group of Canadian Photographers that was founded by Dave Brosha and Paul Zizka.

When not working as a photographer, Ian can be found trying to find a good pick up shinny session at the local rink or walking the neighbourhood pathways trying to get his daily steps in!

  1. “Using your camera as a passport to people.” Nice!
    Thanks for credit/tip for Pixabay
    Yes, more people should reduce photo-anxiety caused by missing-that-shot syndrome
    Break looking at his two images. Good idea for a podcast!
    A question missing from most interviews (from chefs to truckers, bankers to retailers) is a reality check RE: climate crisis. For example, what do you think photographers (and photo industry!) could do to help reduce energy consumption, consumerism, and waste in general?
    Ah, wouldn’t it be nice for the Club to organize a local workshop with a guest photographer. We did discuss it pre-pandemic so maybe . . .
    Thanks! @waterweekns
