Hair Stylist Cristian Cracion
  This is a fun portrait/promo for Vancouver hair stylist Cristian Cracion. Don’t be intimidated by his badass expression here – I asked him for that. He’s really kinda goofy and all smiles. You’ll like him.
Jack Layton
I never got to meet Jack personally but he was a politician with whom I felt a connection. Although he sometimes got caught up in repeating talking points, he still spoke plainly and had obvious compassion for the working class, the sick, the elderly and those whose voices were drowned out by the din of...
Event Photography for Flight Centre Gala
I shot some video while covering this event and put together this little ‘added value’ video for the peeps at Flight Centre. Hope you all enjoy it!
Craig Doherty, Flight Centre Vice President
I caught Craig in a candid moment signing off on some business before the Flight Centre Gala event kicked into high gear at the Westin Bayshore this year. They’ve had me back four years in a row to document this massive party and I got a chance to chat with Craig about the casual/party corporate...
West Coast Fitness trainer Mike Dirks
Mike is an evangelist for healthy living, without getting preachy. He leads by example and encourages people to stay active with tips and suggestions via text, email and on Facebook. While educating his clients on good eating habits, he totally admits to an indulgence at least once a week – sometimes that chocolate mousse looks too...
This out-take from a previous shoot has become a fun promo image for Vancouver’s newest ESL tutor, my friend Kamayo. The cup and cell phone in her hands turned out to be perfect props for conveying a chat over coffee. And her laughter certainly captures her positive energy! I have the feeling she will be...
The Incredible Mr. Gromp
My latest digital short is a collaboration with my neighbour, a very cool ten year old. puppeteering by Zoe Kelly music by Daft Punk  
Michael Cope is half of the madness behind the Cross Eyed Bear Comedy troupe. He’s a soft spoken guy with a dark & twisted sense of humour, which is making ripples across the web with the faux Archie Comics movie trailer “Riverdale“. Check out their edgy, multi-media sketch comedy show this May 26 at Spectral...
Working to create a relaxed and soft look can be challenging but having a great location always helps. This claw-foot tub in an old apartment really set the stage for creating this image. The softness of her expression and lightness of her skin contrast beautifully against the cracked textures of the tub and walls.
While shooting this editorial for Modo, Vancouver’s first car co-op, I couldn’t resist creating my own comical version of American Gothic. This shot actually made the cut for the editorial so I’m glad I indulged my creative whims.
Fashion Photography | Sweet Soul Designs
As a professional photographer one of my most powerful tools is neither my camera nor my lights, not my computer nor my software. It is my ability to say, ‘No,’ to a bad deal. Earlier this week I walked out of a ridiculous meeting with an online fashion retailer without even finishing the drink I’d...
DJ Teddy Smooth and wingman E-roc have been voted #3 for “Best Late Night Radio DJ” in Vancouver for their show CabaRadio. The funny duo (along with this image) will be featured in the next issue of Mainly Main Magazine. This is a shot of them walking the red carpet at last year’s Adult Entertainment Awards at...
Here is a behind-the-scenes shot from a digital short I assisted >>AREML in shooting last weekend. It stars the vivacious and voluptuous Lydia DeCarlo as a femme fatale getting ready for a night on the town. Watch part two to see how she ends the evening as a hot mess, smoking and drinking vodka straight...
Absolutely Cuckoo by Magnetic Fields
As a creative exercise I decided to branch out into video. I’m dating myself but this is the first time I’ve edited video since the days of magnetic tape. I really have to marvel again at the evolution of tools that are so widely available these days. The little ditty is by Magnetic Fields, which...
Sarah Williams | Head of Lulu Lemon Ecommerce
  Last year I was commissioned by Queen’s University for a portrait series of recent Business School graduates for their marketing materials. This environmental portrait of Sarah Williams at the 4th Ave Lulu Lemon location is now making the rounds in various print publications. Sarah was a great subject with an inspiring story of personal...
Making the leap from Bowen Island to Vancouver was a bold move for Bottoms Up Clothing. This little party opened their newly renovated boutique at 3603 Main Street. Swing by and check out what the new neighbours have for sale!
Portrait of Howard Berger, Academy Award winning makeup artist
This is Howard Berger, Oscar winner for Best Achievement in Makeup for The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (2005). He was in town this week giving workshops on special effects at Blanche MacDonald Centre, covering stuff like 3rd degree cuts and other gory effects. He’s a big bear of a man,...
Skateboarding is not dead in Vancouver. The city has a number of public skate parks which seem to always have boarders gliding, kick flipping and grinding about. My little brother was a skate punk and he used to pour over magazines and boggle my mind with all the terms – ollies & nollies, endos and...
Creative Portrait | Boob Vader
The Star Wars franchise has been so badly polluted and plundered that Darth Vader references now make me feel more ill than nostalgic. But last week’s SuperBowl ad for VW and this recent bodypainting project actually made me laugh for a change. I still think George Lucas needs to go away but at least the...
Gateau Lingerie in Yaletown
This image was part of a Valentine’s Day fashion editorial I shot for Yaletown Magazine. Even though you can’t see much of the lingerie, I like the model’s pose and composition. The way I see it, branding is not always about putting the product front and centre. That’s what catalogues are for.
