Where are you currently located / living?

My girlfriend and I recently bought her grandfather’s house in Erinsville, Ontario. Erinsville is basically in the middle of nowhere, halfway between Montreal and Toronto. We have no neighbours, a bunch of chickens and turkeys and 2 massive gardens and if all goes well, we will have a nice bowl to skate by next spring.

How old are you and how long have you been involved with photography?

I am 42 and I started borrowing my dad’s camera on the weekends to shoot photos with the homies back when I was 16 years old.

What type of camera do you shoot with?

Lately I have been stoked on the Nikon D810 and the Fuji X100t.

What is your favorite photography accessory other than your camera?

Not sure, I don’t use many accessories…Pocket Wizards are still cool. Also hard drives.

If you had to choose one lens which one would it be and why?

If I had to choose one lens, I would look into my big bag with all the lenses ever made and I would pick the one lens that I think would work best for what I was about to shoot at that moment.

What makes a skate photograph original and unique: basically what is your idea of a good photo?

If it gets you stoked, it’s a good skate photo.

Name the first photographer that comes to your mind and why?

Robert Frank. I did not know photography could be like that.
