Hello, I’m Justin! I love nature, animals, sports, playing guitar, jeeps and most of all my family and dogs. You can often find me in a forest looking for critters to photograph. Nature plays a big role in my portrait/wedding work as well. I’ve had a camera in my hands since 2006 and graduated from Georgian College’s Digital Photography and Imaging program in 2009. I have photographed many different subjects from weddings, families, wildlife, landscape, sports and events. In 2013 my rabbit image won 1st place in Photo Life’s annual photography competition and appeared on the cover of the April/May issue. In 2015 my fox image placed 2nd. My images have appeared in The Times UK, Outdoor Photographer, National Geographic online, Photo Life Magazine and many other online publications. I also had the opportunity to be the photographer for the Toronto Blue Jays for 2 seasons in 2015 and 2016. I am located in the Waterloo Region. I am available for travel across Ontario and destinations.
