More about my services:
Welcome to my International Photography Services and Portfolio site. Please look around, see my photography galleries and enjoy your visit. I consider myself a cross-breed between commercial photographer and an art photographer, offering pro photography and video with an artistic edge. I am actively involved in photography for over 40 years (yes, I started early – I was ten. The first cash I’ve ever earned was a photo job when I was thirteen, and my first award and exhibition came at the age of fifteen). I am passionate about art portraits, conceptual art, and nature photography and video. I also specialize in photography of Real Estate; architecture and interiors, landscape, and gardens – working on many spectacular locations on various Caribbean islands, in Central America, Canada, and in Europe. That work resulted in coffee table books published by our award-winning team of Ozone Zone Books, and in numerous assignment jobs for various prestigious clients.
My photographs can be often seen in fine magazines and publications (see examples in “editorial works” gallery). I offer wide array of flexible photography services, including remote location work, photo panoramas for high impact displays, fine art photography, and VR tours (including 360 VR videos) for Web sites.
I also do drone aerial photography and videos using advanced drone equipment. This is a close range Aerial Cinematography for Television, Movies, Commercials, Music Videos, Corporate Events, Personal Events, Music Festivals, Sporting and more. Drone mapping services available.
I love black and white photography, and often work in black & white when creating fine art photographic images. I also have stock of high quality photographs, including Caribbean and Dominica themes. My works won many dozens of international medals, awards and sold to numerous clients around the world. Caribbean photographers are many, but the choice is yours, so please explore this site to make an informed decision..
You can find more on About Me page. Our Canadian company Ozone Zone Books does not exist any longer, but all design/writing/publishing services are still available directly from me and my team – a full publishing service including design, writing and printing books, booklets, calendars, post cards, and advertising/promotional materials.
This is much more than just another photo service. I believe that without true artistic touch and perfection, a good photo or publishing work is incomplete. Only top quality workmanship combined with a marked artistic approach can produce truly memorable and appealing creation, something one would want to return to over and over again.
What we offer is much more than your typical service of a print shop or a local photographer. It includes an extra dimension, something that’s perhaps most difficult to find around. It’s an offer made by seasoned artists and professionals working closely together, offer designed specially for the discerning connoisseurs who appreciate nuances of beauty and execution, and look for top quality work. That’s what makes us different from the rest.
I am obsessed with quality and self-improvement – and it shows in my work. Better photography, video, and better quality services. I am obsessed with Better. This perhaps is why I am often hired for international location jobs where failure or mediocre is not an option. I simply deliver Better work – for these who appreciate and need the best. Don’t take my word for it – see my gallery. You will notice a striking quality right away.
I do photograph weddings too, and I travel to other places. There surely are several other wedding photographers in Dominica and the Caribbean (West Indies). I don’t claim to be the best – please, you can compare my work and decide.
Let me know if I can assist you and create fine photos or photo panoramas for your project, advertising, property, portfolio, or if you need a whole package including design or commercial printing.
I used to live for 25 years on Vancouver Island – in Victoria, BC, Canada – but I RELOCATED to Dominica, West Indies (Eastern Caribbean). I travel to international locations, so you can hire my services even if we are far apart. If you want to LOVE YOUR PHOTOGRAPHS – call me! Thank you!
