About Me

From an early age I had a powerful pull towards visual arts, and being inspired by the beauty around me, I was drawn to photography and illustration.  Despite my bend towards the visual arts I also had a very analytical mind and decided to study science at the University of British Columbia, earning a bachelor’s degree in Microbiology & Immunology and a master’s degree in the study of Diabetic Heart Disease.  My scientific training has been hugely beneficial to my photography, as it has taught me how to critically analyze and improve my work.  The ability to break things down into component parts, and to improve my product piece by piece has given me an edge over many traditional photographers.

I began shooting events professionally while still in school.  I’ve continued because I absolutely love the challenge associated with being on my feet, and I love the feeling when I can perform and impress myself and my client.

I look forward to working with you!

A note on choosing a photographer…

I absolutely love shooting events, the idea of walking into a location and documenting not only the events but the subtleties of interaction between people in an interesting and artistic way is something that gives me great satisfaction.  And luckily for you I strive to impress my clients.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so please look through and ask yourself “Do I enjoy the composition?“.  This is probably one of the most important things to look for as tastes are very individual. Is the image interesting to look at? Where do your eyes flow? Is the image more than just a record of someone’s presence?

If you enjoy my images I can assure you that I will be punctual and professional and can provide images within several hours after the event if requested (at no extra cost). I use the absolute best cameras and lenses, meaning that I can capture images in conditions well outside of the limits of normal consumer equipment (note the brightness and technical quality of the images). This also makes me minimally intrusive as I don’t usually require a flash.


Jason Carvalho - Varun,

I finished watch George’s video and it was really well done. (I co-managed the development of George’s website and work on the core campaign team).

When I am not running my company (, I have a not for profit and am looking to develop more interviews with social entrepreneurs across Canada.

I was wondering if you have time to chat next week?
