DUNEDIN, Fla. _ To give you an idea of what is going on in Blue Jays camp.

From my Day 1 of spring training 2018 at the Bobby Mattick facility:

At the first Tournament 12, Andrew Case (Saint John, NB) came east to the Rogers Centre from the Prairie Baseball Institute to  pitch for the Prairies. He did not allow a hit on the Rogers Centre mound. Now, Case, 25, is a step away from the majors. He spent time at class-A Dunedin, double-A New Hampshire and Buffalo. Combined Case was 2-3 with a 3.75 ERA in 29 games. He walked 29 and struck out 64 in 57 2/3 innings.

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.
