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.

32 Frames from the North of Italy is a concise travelogue, captured spontaneously during a week’s road trip through sprawling landscapes, humming street corners, darkened shorelines and claustrophobic alleys of old-world architecture.

Shot in a unique documentary style and rendered in a deep greyscale palette, the images promise to grab hold of armchair travellers, street photography enthusiasts and art lovers alike.
