Shooting Zombie Boy—Not in the Flesh

Zombie Boy 4

I was in Montreal last weekend. Just a little getaway. I always have a good time in Montreal, and this time was no exception. The city was alive. And on the Saturday, there was a massive downtown street sale in which traffic was cordoned off and shoppers roamed the streets en masse.

It was hectic. As I got to a particularly crowded spot, I spotted Zombie Boy. If you haven’t heard of Zombie Boy (real name is Rick Genest), well, the cliff notes is that he’s tattooed from head to toe to look like a skeleton. He’s also from Montreal. He also was diagnosed with a brain tumour before he got any of the tattoos. Oh, he’s in Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” video.

Anyway, I took some shots, of course. People were posing for photos with Zombie Boy. He was stoic as most photos of him are. Creepily stoic. It wasn’t until about three minutes later that I noticed that it was a wax sculpture of Zombie Boy. A very believable, almost too well done wax sculpture. Hauntingly good.

Anyway, take a look at Zombie Boy—not in the flesh.

Ashley + Jeremy’s Wedding Day

Photo by Ryan Bolton.

Shooting a close friend’s wedding is both an honour and a stress. Of course you want to help them out, but you also don’t want to screw it up. It is a big day after all.

Jeremy and I have been close buds since grade school. He’s a kind and compassionate soul. Always has been. And now he and Ashley are hitched. For their big day, I was the groomsmen photographer while Mandy, an awesome photog, captured the ladies. And the coolest part? They got married about a country mile from where I was raised in Hanover, at this beautiful new spot called The Harvest Room. A treasure. Anyway, here is a sneak peek of their big day.

Congrats, Jeremy and Ashley!

Congratulations, Beth and Eric!
