Dennis is a 18-year-old aviation content creator based in Toronto, Ontario. Dennis’s passion for aviation was sparked at a young age simply with the fascination of the mighty flying machines that grace our skies. As Dennis grew older, as did his exposure to the aviation industry, regularly visiting Toronto Pearson to “plane spot” the planes going in and out of Pearson. Today, Dennis is training to obtain his Privates Pilots License and will be attending College with the goal of becoming a pilot by profession. Despite being relatively young, Dennis has been published in magazines around the world, working with several major airshows, and been invited to airline events.

 

With his unique style, Dennis has attracted airshows for media work. Dennis regularly refines his shooting and processing style by shooting the commercial aviation movements in and out of Toronto Pearson Airport year-round and travelling across North America for airshows during the summer months. During the 2018 Thunder over Michigan Airshow, Dennis was a dedicated show photographer. At the 2019 Thunder Over Michigan Airshow, Dennis was the dedicated airshow photographer and social media coordinator for the show weekend. His experience has given him the skills to have a positive impact on any airshow or event.
