I love beautiful things. Lines, colours and space – a moment, an expression, a mood..
When some clients ask me to explain what sets me apart from other photographers, I’m pretty straightforward: I make creative decisions intuitively in any event situation at this point, and I can make any environment/subject look more appealing than it actually may be. Put me in a fabulous space with good light and lots of candid photo opportunities though, and the results can be pretty special. No ‘shot list’ was necessary for this gallery and you’ll see that I loved photographing the Grand Opening of Design Within Reach’s new flagship store =)
Many thanks to Kim for being a pleasure to work with throughout the process, and best of luck to Jeyda and the Toronto team – “welcome to the best in modern design” indeed!
About Design Within Reach

At Design Within Reach, we make authentic modern design accessible. “Within reach” means things not found elsewhere. It means in stock.
Our business started when founder Rob Forbes tried to furnish his apartment with the clean, simple classics he’d come to appreciate while living in London. He discovered that the work of designers like Saarinen, Eames and Bertoia were “out of reach” of anyone who did not know the secret handshake or have the patience to wait months for delivery.
There had to be a better way, so in 1999 we bought 20 containers of product, mailed out a catalog and waited for the phone to ring. (It didn’t for 24 hours, until we realized the nighttime answering machine had been accidentally left on.) The rest, as they say, is history. By giving customers access to the best in modern design – including iconic works that have been in production since the mid-20th century as well as innovative items designed today – we made design within reach.
Authenticity is something we’re proud to offer; elitism however is not. Visit any of our Studios and you’ll never see a “do not touch” sign. We invite you to linger, bring your dog or kids and join us for design events. Welcome to Design Within Reach.
