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. We actually didn’t shoot anything in the studio this time, as we creatively used the spaces around their head office for the first half … 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

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

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

Live Music – This Ain’t Hollywood

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

Review: The Apple iPad Pro

Apple has a lame horse in their stable. For years now sales of iPad’s have been an underperforming weak spot in a portfolio of otherwise indescribably popular products. As extremely portable laptops continued to get cheaper and more ubiquitous, sales of tablets began to dwindle as consumers no longer felt the need to have a device purely dedicated to consumption. … Read More

Joyeux Noel – Family Christmas 2015

Over the years and as we age, the Holiday season becomes something entirely different in meaning. I’m proud to say that a couple of years ago my family made the commitment to keep the gift giving part of the holidays for the children only. Truthfully, the joy of Christmas is the excitement generated amongst our next generation. But for the … Read More
