With the meteoric rise of the Electronic Dance Music genre, I have witnessed it's beginnings from the early intimate club events to the current ever so popular 'festival' circuit. I have gone from being the lone photographer shooting a DJ at a small club, to being 1 of 50 photographers in a photo-pit at a large festival. The popularity of this genre has absolutely exploded in recent years, and having the chance to strap myself in for the ride has been a real gift. Being an EDM photographer has offered me an unrestricted glimpse into life behind the scenes, and access to nearly every DJ you could name off the DJ Mag Top 100 - if their name is on there, I've probably photographed them. In the past couple years I have also been given the opportunity to shoot for one of the largest EDM websites in the world- Dancing Astronaut; providing coverage of Canadian festivals including Veld and Escapade. I am also Playboy's 50th Anniversary Playmate- DJ Colleen Shannon's official tour photographer.
