Fashion Creative
It’s been a while since I’ve had a chance to shoot some fashion on location. It was refreshing to get back outside and flex some mental muscles that have atrophied in the studio environment lately. There are so many more things to keep tabs on like shifts in light, color temperature, busy backgrounds and avoiding...
Surrey Food Bank
While covering the opening of the Morgan Crossing development, I got to meet and photograph this lovely rep from the Surrey Food Bank.

Portrait of the Purrfessor and Burgundy Brixx at the Rio Theatre
The Rio Theatre recently installed a 3D movie projector, adding yet another dimension to this fully restored theatre and state-of-the-art multi-media event space. Corrine Lea, sexually aggressive woman and part owner of the theatre, was kind enough to let us shoot in there on a  moment’s notice for this fun image from my latest photo...
Christmas Portrait
Family Christmas portraits can be a lot of fun, especially when the kids are into it.
The Purple Pirate
It is amazing how many times Dustin (known affectionately to children as the Purple Pirate) lept with a dancer’s grace for my camera to get this shot. We wanted an urban backdrop so we shot this one fine morning in Yaletown. The hardest thing about composing this shot was Dustin’s leg position in each jump...
Portrait of Rhoddy at the Biltmore Cabaret
This is my awesome assistant Rhoddy sitting in for my subjects the Purrfessor & Burgundy Brixx. You can see the results of this photo shoot and read my article on the plight of Vancouver Kitty Nights on Granville Magazine.
Portrait of Janis Hodgins of Pair Bistro
Pair Bistro is a lovely little space in Point Grey that focuses exclusively on locally harvested products from the open waters, vineyards and farms within British Columbia. Janis was a little less camera shy than her husband Todd, so she posed for this WestEnder editorial.
Body Painting project for Blanche MacDonald | MUA - Becca Deon
Runway models make for great birds in creative projects. This is a body painting project for MUA Becca Deon at Blanche MacDonald, the makeup Mecca of the west coast. I am particularly impressed with the attention to detail here in the stencil work across her stomach, the hard lines to delineate her body and the colour blending...
Portrait of Lorne Mayencourt | Former MLA Vancouver-Burrard
The was an option for my cover shoot with former MLA Lorne Mayencourt for Yaletown Magazine. Shooting in this relatively clean alley was serendipitious since I learned during the shoot that Lorne was spearheading a law to put locks on all city dumpsters to curb the mess created by careless dumpster divers.
Portrait Of Friends
One evening I noticed this amazing stretch of clouds moving in and knew the sunset was going to be just amazing so I called my friend/model to do a few test shots. While shooting in the park some more friends happened by and I corralled them into the shot too. I know that jumping shots...
Portrait of kid in hair salon
Why do kids and haircuts always seem to be at odds? I snagged this shot while visiting a local salon.
Portrait of DJ Leanne
Although she has shut down her DJ school, the Rhythm Institute, the notorious DJ Leanne continues her passion for mixing and teaching with the Tom Lee Music Academy, showing students the ropes in vinyl & CD mixing across a range of genres. Here she is posing for the ‘Coffee Crazy’ editorial in the WestEnder.
Blanche Macdonald Centre, Vancouver, BC
A test shoot for the Blanche Macdonald Centre.
Bonnie Kilroe | Celebrity Impersonator
Last week I had the pleasure of seeing Bonnie Kilroe perform a hilarious and farcical impersonation of Sarah Palin on the Kitty Nights stage. This shot of her riding an audience member while shooting confetti from a pop gun in her underwear sums up her act nicely and is my favourite of the evening. Bonnie...
Portrait of bartender at George Lounge
It was the end of the day and George Lounge was already filling up with Yaletown suits and skirts when I arrived to shoot this piece. The manager literally gave me two minutes to shoot with this bartender as he mixed a drink of my choice. He was pretty good about it, pouring and preparing...
WestEnder Cover Shoot
This was the second choice for the WestEnder cover I shot for their feature on fashion designer Carlie Wong. Fashion Editor Steven Schelling hired me for this job and was in the studio to art direct. I love how the studio in the background was also completely white so as not to compete with the...
Marie Noelle of Secret Story 3
Marie Noelle survived the tsunami in Thailand. She told me about how she was travelling on a bus when the wave hit and killed everyone aboard. Somehow she managed to escape, was swept away and washed up kilometers away. This was her secret story as a participant in France’s third season of the reality program...
Vancouver Real Estate Agent Portrait
It was a cool and cloudy day, perfect for outdoor portraits. A 42″ reflector just off camera gave a lovely catch light and filled the shadows nicely. A shallow depth of field also allowed me to shoot against some unlikely backgrounds and walls.
Enerchanges - high end health care
I got this image while shooting an editorial on Enerchanges, a high-end health facility that offers complete care systems – from check ups & physical training to hormone treatment and facial rejuvenation. Every tool possible is available in the battle against aging.
Fashion Party Poster
This event poster was for one of my favourite clients – Hot Box Accessories. The owner would look at the images I was getting and say things like, “Can we make it a little more sexy/dirty?” or “More bum is better”. Oh, how I miss that store.
event photography
There is just something about an honest smile in a crowd that draws my camera lens. Moving around to frame the shot while not drawing attention to myself is always a tricky maneuver. I don’t mind getting busted for sneaking in for a shot, just so long as it is after I have hit the...
