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

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

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

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

In Studio with Clare Cochrane

Clare and I first started messaging one another about working together on Instagram, which these days, is one of the most effective ways for finding people to work with. She is ambitious, and quite literally the first person I’ve shot to bring an Axe with her to a shoot (see Bonus Video on the last page of this post). We … Read More

Home Invasion: Tara

The Home Invasion series of photo sets is something I came up with as a creative exercise for myself. Normally when shooting someone, there is a great deal of pre-discussion, pre-planning, and shot selection. This is fantastic, and how most photography should probably be done. But I wanted to try something different. I wanted to show up in people‚Äôs homes … Read More
