I’m Cole. I make photographs, write code, and sculpt sounds. I was born in Canada, and am currently based in London, England.

I have been a lover of photography for nearly as long as I can remember. Since late 2014, I have been photographing the streets and landscapes of my adopted home in the UK, in addition to other locations across Europe and Canada.

I write code during the day, combining 15+ years of experience and practice in design with a more recent focus on front-end development.

I also create the occasional album of music.

This website primarily acts as a point of reference for my photography.

32 Frames from the North of Italy

One camera, one lens, one week, one country. Thirty-two moments in monochrome.

In July of 2016, we touched down into the swelter of the Italian summer.

Knowing little of the country and even less of the language, I let my camera guide my steps as we travelled through Pisa, Gavi, Bergamo, Verona, and around the Southern half of Lake Garda.

Comprised of thirty-two black and white photographs captured during these travels, ‘32 Frames from the North of Italy’ serves as both a concise travelogue and an evocative collection of images.
