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...
Stu Ross in Fort St. John, BC
Last week I worked on a corporate video with Stu Ross up in Fort St. John, BC. Here are a few behind-the-scenes shots I managed during our 2.5 day running gun battle.
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...
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...
IRIDIA MEDICAL brand launch
The brand launch of Iridia Medical was a real milestone for the company. In this case study we hear from president Vern Biccum and founder Alan Holmes on the value gained through an intensive and introspective process to rebrand as a world-class company.
TEDxStanleyPark
 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.
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.
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...
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.
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....
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...

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...
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...

Through this project I have met some really motivated and innovative people working on amazing projects guided by their ideals and principles. This...
