husband. photographer.  believer. ice cream maker. cat lover.

these are a few of the hats i wear daily  |  the things i love that keep me grounded

 

as a creative, i find great pleasure in capturing significant moments that transpire in the midst of relationships, love and community. 

i believe in timeless photography as a means to seize sacred, spontaneous moments in an honest way and to see things in a rare light.

in the wise words of leonard cohen,

“ pare down to the essence, but don’t remove the poetry.”

my approach is simplistic - narrowing down to let the realness of the present remain in the frame.

 

let’s chase the light together,

jacques.
