On Saturday, June 10th I was out with 3 of the guys here, checking out Albion Falls in Hamilton. In a tragic accident, Michael, on the far left of the photo, slipped and fell to his death. We were being careful, we weren't on that cliff to take photos, but thought it was a path down. I've been broken this past week, but I've had so much love and support from his family, it's been amazing. Today, I woke up feeling broken all over again, but I'm holding in there. Michael would be pissed if he made me fail. He was always one to pick people up when they needed it, not drag them down. So I'm pushing forward, I'll strive to do better, to be better, and to help others. It takes time to heal, but sometimes motivation can help too.

RIP Michael.

Hey some new content!

I got to shoot with the awesome @melancholiacosplay at Fan Expo in Toronto last year. Right now I'm working on preparing with +Hemant Shewnarain, +joshua clifford, and +Michael Lane for our Anime North photobooth, while planning on doing more outdoor shooting too. If you're planning attending, cosplaying, shooting, whatever, feel free to come on by!

Hey everyone. Sorry for the lack of posting the last while. I've been focusing on reposting some work on that other network and talking about the upcoming photobooth +joshua clifford, +Michael Lane, +Hemant Shewnarain, and myself are running at +Anime North this year. So trying to reach out to our audience and I noticed I've missed posting a couple of images over here (I try to avoid reposting stuff from before, but missed a few I haven't :p )

Anyways, the is Melancholia Cosplay doing an adorable gijinka Sylveon Pokemon. She's one of the most positive and enjoyable people to work with, always quick with a comment and a laugh. We shot this at Fan Expo last year and just had a blast. So much so we've worked together a few times since, and hoping to do more this year!

We talk about long exposure, focus stacking, and big photos...8 locations, 500TB of data each on 1,000+ HD's, all to be flown to one location and merged, just to see if we got a photo of a black hole....

Hey everyone
Today is brought to you by hair and makeup artist extraordinaire Anouchka Leblanc! Anouchka is from France, and had been in Ontario for school, and was awesome enough to answer a post looking for help on a photoshoot. She came in and did this amazing makeup job for it, and while we were talking, I managed to get her to agree to do a shoot of her own! Luckily we were able to find the time before she went back home, and had some fun in studio, even creating a "Mabelene" shot lol.
Oh and that's right, I shot me an "international model" haha j/j. Anouchka really
is awesome, as she does both hair and makeup, and as you can see, looks amazing in front of the camera too! Meeting these awesome people is one of the reasons I love photography.

Yep, I fell behind again in posting lol. Over on that other network, I got a new page put together, posting a lot of old work there, didn't feeling like flooding teh same stuff here. So G+ gets my new stuff...which is actually and old shoot from a day out with +Marjorie McDonald, +Lena Dawood, +Ron Clifford, and the musically, artistically, brilliant +Bethany Clifford. I was playing with the DeFocus control on my Nikon 105mm DC for this shot, pushing that almost blurry feeling. It creates a very unique haloing effect which just makes it feel surreal.

Anyways, Ron, Beth and I were driving around for a bit, stopping randomly and shooting....hence the album title :P
