I was recently told that my passion was photography. I had to correct my friend, that photography was not my passion, but happiness is my passion. Whether it is capturing the moment of happiness through photography, the fluid motion of videography, or by DJing the music that brings out the spirit of emotion in the moment.
This all started in 2001, producing music, which lead to winning 3 awards & a nomination at regional music awards presentation, a spot of "writer's block", and a suggestion from a Toronto-based DJ/Producer, and year later, I went from working as a DJ, to launching my own DJ service.
I had always been an shutterbug with a camera, but the inspiration for Professional Photography was a fluke. I was DJing one of my best friend's wedding, and their Photographer was a "work of art", eventually I got serious about shooting professionally, and added to the DJ business in 2004. I tried to DJ and photography at the same time, and it was way too much to do alone.
In 2010, I took a 3 year break, for personal reason, returning in 2013, and changing the business name to BB ImageHouse to allow for flexibility to offer Photography, Videography & DJ services, along with equipment rentals.
I have been married to my incredible wife, Katherine, for almost 2 years, and I have 2 incredible kids, a 21 year old daughter, and a 16 year old son who is actively involved in Search 7 rescue. When I am not be part of an event, I can be found touring around the region by motorcycle, or doing something with a camera.
During the week, you'll find me at my day job, where I have worked up the ranks since 1995. I value and respect hard work, which is reflected in how I run BB ImageHouse, and how I treat my clients. To be honest, I am a "No Bull" person. Historically, the best events are the one's that are well planned, and when this happened these events are fun, and are memorable. As a "No Bull" person, I sit down with each and every client, we discuss your needs & budget, I read through every service agreement & contract with you, and answer any questions you may have prior to signing on. I do this, because I don't like little surprises in the fine print, or drama down the road.
Honestly, pricing is one the most debated topics in the industry. Personally, I feel that the pricing needs to respect the quality of the Professional Service, and it also need to respect your budget. With that said, I have worked with young couples just getting a start, to clients with larger budgets.
In the end, it needs to be realistic and work for both of us.
