Photoshoot to Elite Toronto's Kyana with Ryan Bolton. Shot downtown Toronto in studio and in the streets.
This one is long overdue. Belma and I shot this series back in September when she first signed to Elite Models Toronto. From the first shot, I loved this shoot. Life's been busy, but I waited this long to really ensure I got the shots. To edit on my own time. From Belma and I, The Blue Series.
I finally did it. The first sale on something you've worked hard on (read: obsessively) is a beautiful thing. Especially so when that client isn't your loving mother. I did it. I opened an online shop of my gallery framed prints. It's something I've aspired to do for too long. Photography has opened so many doors … Continue reading I Launched an Online Shop of My Framed Prints (At Last!)

oh, happy days. Back at it with the wedding photography—and I feel the love. It's intoxicating. Here's a peek at such a heartwarming wedding for Erin and Adam. They live in Roncesvalles Village in Toronto, which, let's just say is one of the most beautiful, tree-lined neighbourhoods in the city. So we shot there, naturally. With the ceremony … Continue reading Erin + Adam: Wedding Day at the St. Lawrence Market
Kiana and I mesh so well. Every time we shoot, it's a creative journey. We have bubblegum? Great, let's us it. Oh, an ice cream truck! Perfect. There's such a natural deep beauty to Kiana. Here's a new set from a couple weeks ago at my work studio and rooftop over Queen St.
For anyone that really knows me, knows that skateboarding is my everything. It's what I first identified with. Where I discovered individualism and creativity. Of seeing the world differently. I would spend hours, every day, perfecting tricks. I dedicated everything I had to skateboarding. To be frank, skateboarding was the impetus to my photography. I owe a … Continue reading The Time I Got to Shoot Pro Skateboarders
The best festival is about the overall experience. What you really get out of it. Bestival always leaves me content. Satisfied. At peace. Otherworldly. Here are my favourite shots from the 2-day festival with Jamie xx, Tame Impala, Grimes (in my top 5 albums of 2015), and The Cure (a go-to favourite of mine growing up). A … Continue reading Bestival with Grimes, Tame Impala, Jamie xx and The Cure
Field Trip Festival never disappoints. It was actually at Field Trip last year that I first got serious about concert photography. Now I'm shooting five major festivals and dozens of bands this summer.
Every time someone commissions me to take a photo, I'm honoured. It means something—to trust someone and their art. And when it's your sister asking, you really can't fuck it up. Hayley, forever my baby sister, is getting married to one helluva great guy, Jamie. They're fantastic. And they asked me to shoot their engagement … Continue reading Hayley + Jamie Are Getting Hitched!
