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

On Set with George Richards Big and Tall Menswear

Subscribe to my YouTube Channel!!!  Last week I was in studio (sort of) and on location for two full days of shooting with Grafton Fraser for the Fall/Winter campaign for George Richards Big and Tall Menswear.

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 summer, I will be celebrating my first decade as a home and property owner here, and my roots are firmly … Read More

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, 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
