Fitness Trainer Tracey Boss, portrait
Tracey’s weapon of choice is the kettle bell. Although she posed and swung that thing around a lot throughout the session, I like this shot of her at ease.
Chelsea Edwardson, singer/songwriter
  It was a cold, wet day for shooting but Chelsea was a real trooper as we tramped around this Richmond farm, creating cover art for her upcoming album. Kudos to her and Linda leClair for a great session.
Animation by Jeff Chiba Sterns and Living Blueprint
Thrive is a week-long initiative at UBC to promote habits which contribute to positive mental health. Working with the Creative Director, Animator and UBC to put this project together, I’m rather pleased with my first animation production.
Illustrator Sunny Shah at Living Blueprint talk on Irresistible Branding by David Childs
Sunny Shah is a talented art student at Emily Carr, who was the first in a series of illustrators to breath life into the concept of The LeotArtist. Zipped into a full-body morphsuit, Sunny created the visual element during a talk on Irresistible Branding by David Childs. This live art aspect took the audience well...
Vikram Vij, Top Chef and champion of Indian Cuisine
Actually, I could only fit a few of Vikram’s accolades in the title. The list is long. After hearing him speak last week at Creative Mornings, I understand why. Now I feel like I’ve been depriving myself of Vancouver’s culinary treasures. Time to go pop my cherry, either in restaurant or at the new food...
Vancouver Headshot, outdoor portrait
My old friend Kameyo came by to update her headshot as the sun was going down so we ran up to the roof for this lovely, soft portrait. I really like how the city and the North Shore mountains as a backdrop feature this beautiful B.C. gal in her natural environment.
Quentin Smith, President of Pacific Coastal Airlines
A personal endorsement from Quentin Smith, President of Pacific Coastal Airlines for Living Blueprint. Directed, shot and cut by yours truly. It was a lot of fun having access to airplane hangers and to wander around on the tarmac, as well as spend time above the beautiful landscape of northern British Columbia.
Sincere - a German design project pitch by Diana Schmitz
This is Diana’s entry for a German design competition. Hopefully we will know soon if she won.
Boudoir photography
Having a great location is key to evocative boudoir images. This session was shot at the 2400 Kingsway Motel, where many movie and TV productions rent out their bungalows for classic sets. To accentuate the historic and gritty feel for the environment in these images I went with a cross-processed treatment, a dated technique itself.  
Firemen at Broadway & Price Edward
A large pile of rubble is all that remains of my favourite chinese supermarket – Thuan Phat. The Globe & Mail has written a great summary of the progression of the blaze. I’m a bit used to running around backstage or behind-the-scenes, so the cops had to eventually shoo me away while I was grabbing...
Sea to Sky Highway GranFondo 2012
As part of the GranFondo cycling event, I had the pleasure of putting together some great teams to help create this amazing poster by Station X. We shot portraits of the GranFondo participants as they registered, ran them through mosaic software to create a larger image, rushed a run of posters and then distributed the posters at...
portrait of old men
This is Pete and Bob, neighbours in Rock Inlet – a half hour flight out of Port Hardy into the middle of nowhere. Pete lives on a flotilla of barges, cobbled together by planks and rope, complete with a foundry, workshop, greenhouse, two-story home, recreation barge & gift shop. If he needs anything, he literally can just make it....
David Child | Brand Strategist at Living Blueprint
David Childs, Brand Strategist at Living Blueprint talks about the value of a holistic approach to branding in this video.
French Bulldog portrait
Sometimes clients have the cutest pets hanging around their work environments. This little fellow greets me with an excited howl every time I show up and then watches with sleepy eyes as I move around the studio.

Jaguar camera attachement
I’m looking forward to seeing to finished product on this commercial! Recently I worked 3rd Unit on a Jaguar commercial production with Spark 44 and Bully Pictures. Here is a reference shot on how we rigged a DSLR to the back of the Jags so we could drive them around town and through rain corridors.
Travel Smart campaign sign
An image I shot for Modo: The Car Coop has found new life in this Travel Smart campaign! So far it has been spotted on Skytrains and the Travel Smart website. Personally, I’m an evangelist for car sharing programs and am really happy to see them gaining traction in Vancouver and across the nation. Just...
portrait of burlesque performer Sweet Pea Maggie
The phenomenon of #FlashbackFriday on Instagram has me looking at some of my older work and thinking about all the personal projects I used to do. It’s been a while and I realize that I miss the freedom of personal work. There is no client to please, no pressure and no deadline. I need to...
Drishti Point producer and yogi Farah Nazarali
Farah Nazarali is the producer of Drishti Point, a radio program and podcast about yoga, spirituality and wellness. This still comes from our shoot of the soon-to-be-released video promo for Drishti Point’s exciting, soon-to-be-launched website. I look forward to posting the video to promote the website launch!
Jessica Hische at Creative Mornings Vancouver
Today’s instalment of Creative Mornings was another block buster, filling again to capacity with Jessica Hische at the podium. Her infectious enthusiasm and smile made her potty mouth endearing as she talked about the value of font foundries, geeking out on your own passions and the intersection of arts and technology. She was joined on...
West Coast Fitness trainer Timothy Simpson
You would be impressed by the number of plyometric push-ups Tim did for this shot and he still makes it look effortless. Tim is an awesome bootcamp trainer – always positive, always pushing and leading by example. I look forward to working with him in the gym and on the next set of trainer portraits...

Gerry Martin of United We Can
Money is a very personal subject and banking is a boring subject. But the ethics of banking has been front and centre in our social consciousness as phrases like “too big to fail” and “the ninety nine percent” fill headlines and conversations around the world. It seemed like perfect timing, when I was approached to...
humorous portrait of actor Paul Anthony of Talent Time
This is Paul Anthony, actor and funny man from the East Van standard Talent Time. We were working on actor headshots but then he busted out this Kuala sweater and glasses! Whether this ends up being used as a promo shot or a fun out-take, it’s one of my favourites from a memorable session. Looking at...

Melissa Breker | Content Specialist at Fresh Spark Strategies
Melissa and I met at a photo shoot for MishaEssentials. This outtake is from a break we had in shooting and I corralled some of the team into some fun grab shots. I remember she was little camera shy but doesn’t she look just great? Melissa creates online experiences with Fresh Spark Strategies. Her studio...
Hilary Henegar and fellow in video on banking values at Vancity credit union
Here’s a sneak peek at a project I am working on with Hilary Henegar on banking values and credit unions. As much as that sounds like a snore, it is anything but. Through this project I have met some really motivated and innovative people working on amazing projects guided by their ideals and principles. This...
