How I got into modelling

In the grocery business it is referred to as ‘facing up’. The process is simple. You work aisle to aisle moving a couple of rows of product from the back of the shelf to the front, labels forward. It presents better, makes things easier to find, and makes the stock levels look adequate even when they aren’t. It is also … Read More

What would you like me to talk about?

I want to write more often. More specifically, I want to share more often. And one of the ways I feel as though I can most effectively do that is via my blog. This post is the first I’ve made in a very very long time. I do not have a good reason for neglecting it for so long. One … Read More

Yellow Door Theatre Project: Alice in Wonderland

Recently I had the opportunity to travel to Niagara on the Lake and witness the final workshop presentation of the two week summer intensive program put on by the Yellow Door Theatre Project. This presentation of Alice in Wonderland starred my two incredible nieces and the sold out audience was in place to be made aware of the incredible work … Read More

Justin Trudeau and more

What a crazy day so far. Stood in prime location at the end of the parade in the heart of Dundas Square. My shoulders are burnt as hell (I’m pretty close to the sun). Totally worth it. It’s incredible to see such a celebration of love and joy. Our prime minister walked the streets and he was genuinely overjoyed. He … Read More

My initial thinking was that better photographs of the animals and more exposure would lead to greater adoption rates. I made it there a couple of times and then life got busy, and before I knew … Read More

Tour of the Hamilton Animal Shelter

This morning I had the pleasure of touring the Hamilton Animal Shelter with Councillor Aidan Johnson (Ward 1) and Ken Leendertse from the City of Hamilton. We were there for several hours with the purpose of trying to come to a greater understanding of what role the shelter plays in our city. I was there, of course, to put visuals … Read More

Project Wrap Up: True Hamiltonian Website

A lot of people might not know this, but a large chunk of my business is actually creating web presences for companies in need, or upgrading what they have along with social media marketing long term. I tend to agree to projects that also feature my original photography, and when friend and local celebrity Max Francis approached me about giving … Read More

The Ward 3 Series: Vintage Coffee Roasters

Anyone that has paid attention to my photography over the years probably realizes how much I love my city. I live in the same city (Hamilton Ontario) that I was born in, and I have no intentions of leaving. This summer, I will be celebrating my first decade as a home and property owner here, and my roots are firmly … Read More
