One Eyeland Photography Award

It’s been a pretty busy year for me so far. I’ve managed to work with some great new clients such as Rethink, Coast Capital Savings and Universal Pictures, I’ve had the pleasure of having some of my photography featured by some well established online outlets and magazines such as Behance and Dodho… and to finish it off, I just received an award from One Eyeland in the “Professional Advertising – Self Promotion” category. Not too bad at all…  We also managed to squeeze in a minor trip to Tofino on Vancouver Island, which – if you have been following my blog or Instagram for while – know that I just adore… HERE are some images from my last trip there.

Anyways… back to the award. I won with the image below entitled “X”, it has previously won at IPA – The International Photography Awards as well.
