Summer Update 2014
Summer is in full swing and the first half of 2014 is behind us!
Here are a few of the exciting shoots I've done since the start of the year.
Green Rush for Report on Business
I've been covering the rapidly changing marijuana industry for a couple of years now so I was really excited to shoot this cover story for Report on Business! We got access to some of the first commercial grow ops in Canada and were able to get some great portraits with the founders and employees. For more images and behind the scenes see here.
Showroom for Hollace Cluny (Hybrid)
Hollace Cluny is one of the top stores in Canada for modern and contemporary furniture. They have recently moved into a new space and approached me to photograph their showroom for some upcoming magazine ads as well as creating a video showing the space.
Jeffrey Boase for RU Magazine
Jeffrey Boase is a professor and researcher at Ryerson University who studies the impact of smartphones on the communication patterns of teens. We created a variety of conceptual portraits with him "studying" teens as well as this portrait of him in a world of emojis!
House of Hoops for Always with Honor (Hybrid)
Always with Honor is a portland based design studio specializing in iconography and illustration. They recently completed several murals for Foot Locker's House of Hoops and needed them documented. Upon seeing that one of the murals was animated, I immediately knew that we needed to create some animated gifs to fully convey their work. For more images see here.
200 Megapixel Panorama for Brad J Lamb
Brad J. Lamb and his team approached me with a unique job, they wanted a large-scale photograph of the Toronto skyline at night but having gone through several photographers they still weren't getting the resolution they needed for the image. Working within some tight confines I was able to create a 200 megapixel image of our gorgeous city at night! Read the full story here.
Bar Buca for Canadian Business
Though I shoot food quite often, it's not often that I fall in love with the restaurants themselves. Bar Buca completely won me over. I've been back countless times and enjoy everything about it - the interior, the staff, the atmosphere, the price, the drinks, and of course the food! This is the Rock Shrimp with rosemary ash and 'nduja mayo. See behind the scenes images here.
Whiskey Down for MGM Grand
While in Vegas to shoot some interiors I was asked by MGM Grand to create some promo image for one of their new restaurants Whiskey Down. We ended up shooting moody photographs of some of their top whiskey's within their space.
One of the Top 100 Photographers in Canada by the Magenta Foundation
I'm very honoured to have been named one of Canada's top 100 photographers by the Magenta Foundation and to be included in the 10 year anniversary edition of Flash Forward! I can't wait to see this in print!
