I'm a 26 years old self-taught photographer based in Montréal, QC. My passion for photography was born from a deep desire to share and document the beauty I see in my environment.
I take a lot of pride in the fact that none of my pictures have been digitally altered in the making.
My work has been featured in international publications, and my first book was published in 2016.
In 2017 and 2018, I have been nominated Community Allstar on Unsplash.com where my pictures have received more than 25 Millions views.
