DESCRIBE YOUR AESTHETIC IN 3 WORDS.

Romantic. Dreamy. Rough around the edges.

EVERYONE IS LISTENING. WHAT DO YOU SAY

Find what matters to you, however trivial it may seem to others.

What really changed my life is when I started pointing my film camera at what I liked. The people, the subjects, the colours. I only started doing photography six months ago and I cherish my amateur status.

I'm not trying to get accepted in the photographers world. I'm not trying to be cutting edge, popular or technically skilled, which are all the things that used to plague my other career, working as a music video and commercial director.

So don't waste time and do you.

 

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE LOCAL SPOTS FOR CREATIVITY ?

For me creativity comes from the most random places. Being on the highway at night, seeing an abandoned building and wondering what could've happen there. There are things that fuel my creativity in Montreal like eating at Elda with friends, drinking at Kabinet and going to the aquatic park at Mont Saint-Sauveur.

WHAT ARE YOU MAIN INSPIRATIONS

Romantic love for my girlfriend and the everyday mystery of things.

WHAT’S THE MOST EXCITING THING ABOUT YOUR INDUSTRY TODAY ?

What is most exciting I think is the tremendous access we have to people and places. You're always one DM away from making things happen.
