1. Who are you? I’m Tyler, a 31-year-old curious soul who spends his days wandering around with his camera. When I have my camera in my hand exploring I feel complete freedom to capture how I see the world. 


2. How long have you been doing photography? I’ve been shooting for about 20 years now and hopefully 20 more🙂

3 What do you like to shoot and where? My biggest passion is shooting in the heaviest possible rain/snow and stormy weather. The feeling of gearing up in rain/snow gear with your camera constantly in your hand for several hours is the greatest feeling. Also, in the pouring rain no one seems to bother you so I’m free to focus on capturing my vision. People just look at you pretty weird standing in the middle of the street in the pouring rain with a camera 😂.  I love shooting late night quiet streets in downtown Toronto but the Vancouver mountains I love exploring and shooting as well.
