Background and Family
I live in Saint John, N.B. In a nice small home on the North end I live with my superb Wife Jill, our very cute daughter Lauren, and our two cats Demi Moore and Bruce Willis. I grew up in Rothesay and graduated from The University of New Brunswick with a major in Communication Studies. This is were I sharpened my media skills and learned to produce content with a powerful meaning.
My Grandfather Fred Capson was an award winning photographer in Saint John and gave me the photography bug at an early age. He always carried a camera around with him and captured thousands of images everywhere he went. My mother Lynn Capson was the same way. Everywhere we went we had to stop and smile for a photograph. As a child I just assumed that everyone carried a camera around and constantly stopped to pose, or take a picture. I was a bit mislead but am grateful for the exposure they had on me. My mother inherited my Grandfather’s older Pentax K1000 and passed it down to me when I was about 10 years old. It was an older rugged 35mm film camera with a 50mm lens attached. A great starter camera!
I always carry a camera with me. Whether it be my 5DMKIII, my Leica X1, or even just my cell phone. I love to take pictures and I never know when I am going to find some nice light. I appreciate our technological boom that makes it so we can easily take pictures whenever and wherever we are.
Apart from being a photographer I am also co-owner, director of photography, and web developer at ICS Visual Creative Agency. We are a Saint John based full service agency helping clients with online branding, social media, photography & videography, web design & development, and a slew of other great services. I handle video, photography, and web development for our clients on a daily basis. Our team at ICS Visual Creative Agency is a strong, knowledgeable, and fun force to be reckoned with.
