video content strategy
Creating a clear goal for your video strategy comes before asking what kind of video you should make. What strategic outcomes would you like see? Do you want to attract the best and brightest to work for you? Are you educating people about your product? Promote a product? Do you want to engage your community?...
Carson Ting munny
Although he doesn’t consider himself a rebel, Carson Ting has successfully struck out on his own to create an experimental visual workshop with clients around the world. He credits his current position and demand to his many side projects, which guided him back to his strengths and passions, rather than the structures and demands of...

Stéphane Mouttet speaks at Interesting Vancouver 2013
  Last week saw another sold out edition of Interesting Vancouver at the Museum of Vancouver. This is my third year of involvement with this great event, bringing together a multi-disciplinary audience and range of speakers to talk about all things interesting. If you came with an open mind, odds are you left with fresh...

Pacific Coastal Airlines social video 2013
As the leisure brand for Pacific Coastal Airlines unfolds, we were asked to create a short, integrated print, web and social media campaign to promote the end-of-summer seat sale, which featured 4 seats for the price of 3 on the same flight, same day. The challenge was to draw out the benefits of this deal...
Devil May Wear | Fall Fashion 2013
Since we are officially into the fall weather, I figured it was time I posted these fashion images I shot for the Devil May Wear Fall Fashion line. This shoot took place on a blustery day so all of our original location scouting had to be thrown out the window for fear of everyone and...
Sandy Huang | Business & Marketing Consultant
What is the difference between strategy and tactics? This basic question started a great conversation with Sandy, which we scripted into this video. Concisely and conversationally, Sandy introduces her philosophy on high level goals and concrete steps implementing a strategy.

BB Revised has moved from a WordPress blog to a full e-commerce site! All summer I have watched it evolve into its current form and am impressed with how Tamara LeClair has brought her vision to life. To celebrate, here are some behind-the-scenes shots from her last collection shoot, which I helped produce.
Somatic HVAC brand launch party
After two and a half years of rapid growth, this HVAC company found that it had already outgrown its generic brand.

Haney Neptunes swim meet 2013
With over 400 swimmers participating in the Haney Neptunes Enerex Invitational Swim Meet, the real challenge this day was negotiating the throngs of children around the pool and keeping our camera gear dry. My legs and feet got soaked but thankfully no cameras were harmed in the production of this video. One camera that did really...
Mark Brand behind Save On Meats
  Walking through the back of Save On Meats and hanging out in the alley with one of his chefs, it struck me how Mark Brand has a genuine rapport with, and knows the names of, his people. That’s pretty impressive for a guy who owns as many businesses as he does. And when he isn’t...
  Our mission was to capture fun in the sun for the 21st Annual Memorial Golf Tournament, hosted by Pacific Coastal Airlines! Last year it raised a record $35,245 for the Source Club of Powell River, an organization that provides educational and life skills programs to persons with mental illness. This year Pacific Coastal added the NEC Native Education College as...

 Taking “ideas worth spreading” into the brand of Vancouver’s newest TEDx event. WHAT The roll out for TEDxStanleyPark needed a team lead to collaborate with the branding and social media teams and take ownership of the visuals – still and motion images. The organizing and strategy teams were small and independent and the creative latitude I was...
Portrait of Natacha Beim for Creative Mornings
I’ve never seen a renowned education expert do a little dance and shout ‘whoo!’ on stage, imitating a wild child, but Natacha Biem‘s experience with kids as an early development educator totally sold it. Her talk last week at Creative Mornings wasn’t just funny but pointed with optimism towards a better way to motivate and educate our children to...
Dynamix Agitators
In creating compelling images for engineers on-site, the balance between aesthetics, capturing scope and straight up documentation can be fun and challenging. Here is the final stage of assembly for three giant mixers that will agitate anything from asphalt to cosmetics in three-story tall containers.
Miles End Motors Party
There is something about a media wall at a party that makes everyone a rock star. Here a fun moment with Miles End Motors Director, David Bentil, with one of his hard working associates. Below is just one of the hot wheels on display just outside the event.

Sterling Cooper and Associates, Vancouver
There is always a certain satisfaction when I get to see how my work fits into the completed whole of a project.

photo student photographing model
Lately I’ve been doing a lot of mentoring, which has forced me to examine and step outside of my process. If you think you know something, try explaining it to someone else. They will question it or take it and do something completely unexpected. It’s good to have answers but not necessarily all of them...
David Paetkau | Flashpoint Finale
After five seasons of procedural drama and SWAT team action, the series finale of Flashpoint aired last week. I was fortunate to meet and photograph actor David Paetkau before he took off to Toronto to start filming the series.

The WestEnder wrote a nice piece with this photo on Mayor Gregor Robertson’s talk at Creative Mornings Vancouver.
George Steeves, president of Sterling Cooper, Vancouver
This is my favorite portrait from a day of shooting with the architectural engineers at Sterling Cooper. George is an accomplished visionary in his field and a great character. I like to think of this portrait as his ‘Alfred Hitchcock’ moment.
Jeff Chiba Sterns Animator interview
While working with Jeff on the UBC Thrive animation project, I sat down with him for a quick interview to pick his brain about his approach and process.
