Ted is a Canadian-born, location photographer who has been living in Neuchâtel, Switzerland since 2001. He specialises in creating engaging Wildlife, Nature and Sports images.
Since childhood, Ted has always been a nature fanatic, especially hiking and mountaineering. The Alps and Jura mountains of Switzerland fuel this passion for being completely immersed in nature. He believes that the key to creating engaging wildlife photographs is to thoroughly and intimately know one’s subject, and to be able to anticipate key moments with little notice. Good optics and equipment help ensure high quality… but knowledge, proximity and patience are essential elements to creating an engaging image.
An avid basketball player in early life, Ted eventually played professionally in Europe and for the Men’s National Team of Canada. He has always enjoyed playing and watching many different sports, which has helped form his affinity and passion for capturing high-quality, sports action images.
A natural explorer and traveller, Ted feels that the excitement of visiting new cultures and environments never gets old. To be able to capture and share moments of these experiences is a natural extension to his innate curiosity to explore and experience our small and wonderfully diverse planet.
