What do your days look like? It seems that you spend a lot of time wandering in the streets, exploring shapes, shadows, reflexions, looking for an angle.

I make sure to always have my camera on me wherever I’m going. I usually get around by foot, or bike, which both allow me the time to observe my surroundings obsessively. I still see new things to photograph outside my front door, so a lot of times I do not have to wander far.

What’s your equipment and why this choice?

Right now I’m using a Fujifilm x30. I chose this camera because its small and easy to carry–combined with the fact that it allows me to capture high resolution images.

I like the importance of sharp shadows in your work. How do you do when there’s only clouds in the sky of Toronto?

Thank you. On overcast days, I still shoot a lot. But you’re right, sunlight is important to my work. I will often revisit locations I photographed on cloudy days, to re-shoot at a better time of day/when the sun is out.

Today, you have more than 36K followers on Instagram, can you explain this recent success and how it happened?

I try to post as often as I can, and I think as a result, that keeps people engaged. I’m very lucky to have so many people interested my work, I definitely do not take it for granted.
