First and foremost I am a father and husband to an amazing family with Collin & Robyn, and our cat and dog. I have a magnetic draw to water, I always have to take a dive in or swim, even in cold temperatures, so when we found our home in Cheektowaga with a pool, it was the perfect fit. A home, a business location, and a backyard vacation spot.
I founded Onion Studio in 2007. With my focus on providing high quality customer service and creative vision. In 2008 Robyn Buyskes came on as a partner, wife and love of my life. Step by step we have created a studio encompassing photography and graphic design. A synergy of life and work.
At an early age my mom gave me my first camera. I enjoyed capturing true and honest moments. Since then, my journey has honed in on using my passion for communicating to the benefit of my clients. Onion Studio is committed to fulfilling every project in the most creative ways possible.
Collaboration and the ability to connect are in my blood—growing up in South Africa, I observed my mother run her creative entrepreneurial business. My family came to Western New York in 1987, when I was 13. My professionalism, ambition and curiosity drive me to constantly stretch and grow, increasing my ability to create images that delight and inspire all of our clients—from large-scale commercial projects, to weddings, to first-time parents.
Communicating builds trust and comfort—the camera is my way in.
