Random Exhibition: #rainwalk

So last night I went for my evening walk and I essentially got caught in the rain. That is when something remarkable happened, I decided just to stay out there. And the reason I did so was because the sunset was so remarkable at the time, I thought I could make something out of this rare opportunity. So I carried … Read More

Volunteering at the Hamilton/Burlington SPCA

Late last year, I reached out to the HBSPCA with an offer to help them create better media and content for their incredible organization. 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.

The Ward 3 Series: Vintage Coffee Roasters

I live in the same city (Hamilton Ontario) that I was born in, and I have no intentions of leaving.

Live music is something I’ve always wanted to shoot more of. As a former bar manager, I was exposed to some incredible music for many years on end. Recently, as part of a web design project I’ve been working on with a friend and an enormously talented musician, I went out to take some photos to use for the creative … Read More

January 2016: My Favourite Photos

Early last month I decided to post a year-in-review type of gallery of my own personal favourite photos of mine from the year 2015. What I didn’t realize at the time of creating that post, was how important it would be for me creatively. By reviewing my previous year, it made me really stop and evaluate where I wanted 2016 … Read More

Sony G-Master Fast Zoom Lenses on the way

As reported on Sony Alpha Rumors yesterday, it appears as though Sony is set to begin releasing their professional level fast zoom lenses beginning with a 24-70 2.8. They will call this new series of lenses the G-Master line and although very little is known about the lenses themselves at this point, I for one am hotly anticipating both the … Read More

Sony, Nikon and Canon at CES 2016

There has been a lot of backlash in the Sony community that our beloved camera manufacturer didn’t choose to make more of a splash at CES than they did, similar to the cards Nikon played by introducing the D5 and D500 SLR’s to the market. And while users of the A99/A77/A58 (despite rumours that they may not even bother) continue … Read More

My Favourite Photos of 2015

Two thousand and fifteen was a year of major change for me. I moved on from a career in the nightlife and bar industry to pursue my passion full time. Not that my camera ever failed to be an important part of my existence, but it was time I took my work more seriously and made moves to share more … Read More
