C Noah Naylor (Mississauga, Ont.) of the Ontario Blue Jays, who is expected to be the top high schooler selected next June in the annual draft of high schoolers and collegians. Noah could be a first rounder -- he’s rated 15th among high schoolers by Perfect Game Scouting Service -- like his brother Josh Naylor selected 12th over-all by the Miami Marlins in 2015.

Born in Ottawa, ON and growing up with military parents, my childhood was filled with new cities all of the time, stretching from one side of Canada to the other. 

I took to sports at a young age, primarily Tae Kwon Do. I loved the competitiveness of it and by age 13 won my first North American and Canadian Championship title.

I moved out West after I was done my schooling, where I obtained a Diploma as an Automotive Technician.  I loved the amazing landscapes Alberta offered me, where I could pursue my passion of photography.  It wasn't until 2013, when I realized what I really wanted to be taking pictures of, after I travelled to Phoenix to watch Team Canada in the WBC. I was hooked on sports photography, and baseball, right then and there.  I currently live in Calgary, AB and spend my summers shooting the WMBL Okotoks Dawgs.
