Welcome!

Welcome to “Art Is Culture!”. This is my personal blog where I publish a mix of articles, guides, photos and reviews. I’m a photographer artist based in Halifax Nova Scotia. My passion is to capture life, feelings and time with my camera. I find photography helps me discover places, people, things, and ultimately connect with our world. My goal is to support my passion for photography through selling my work and services. To be able to keep it up with technology, continue a lifelong education and afford travel to interesting locations.
