Hello! I'm André.
Here's pretty much everything you need to know about me, in a nutshell:
Based in Moncton, NB (Canada).
Fluently bilingual (English and French).
Part-time professional photographer.
Advanced Certified drone pilot.
I'm a proud dad of two awesome boys, and my motivation to learn photography came when my first child was born. I wanted to document the small and big moments of his life, so I read everything I could about photography and practiced around the house. Next thing you know, I was hooked with the artform of photography!
Today, my body of work primarily consists of nature photography like landscapes and wildlife, but I also shoot in genres such as family portraits and commercial photography, including drone work.
And in case you're wondering: Yes I still take photos of my kids :) and I'm sure they're getting annoyed with me, but I don't care :)
Licenced Pilot for Advanced Drone Operations
Having the ability to create images from difficult to acces perspectives is a great advantage. This is what attracted me to flying drones.
I take much pride in flying legally and safely. I've been flying drones since May of 2021 under the Basic license, and I obtained my Transport Canada Certification for Advanced RPAS Operations in November of 2021.
Ethical Nature Photography
I believe in always prioritizing the wellbeing of nature over my photography, and I follow the Nature First principles. All my wildlife photography show wild animals in their natural elements. They are never fed, baited or disturbed in order to get a photo.
Please don't hesitate to reach out if you are interested in learning more about the services I can offer, if you're interested in purchasing a print or simply to say hello.
I'm always looking for opportunities to collaborate, and am looking forward to hearing from you!
