Cop & A Half 2 – KeyArt – Universal Pictures

Photographed the key art for Universal Pictures Cop And A Half: New Recruit, it was a fun day working with the legendary Lou Diamond Phillips and the up-and-coming star Lulu Wilson. New Recruit is a sequel to the 1993 Cop and a Half with Burt Reynolds and Ruby Dee.

Grizzled veteran detective Mark Simmons (Lou Diamond Phillips) can’t seem to catch the “Badge Bandit” – the city’s serial prankster who’s causing mischief and embarrassing the police. Karina Foley (Lulu Wilson) is a spunky 12-year-old who dreams of being a cop. She stumbles on Simmons’ stakeout where she proves she’s got serious detective skills and tech-savvy smarts. While Simmons wants to ignore Karina, the police captain does the unthinkable and teams them up. While on their mission to stop the “Badge Bandit,” the unlikely duo goes on a hilarious, action-filled adventure!

As always it was a pleasure working alongside the local film folks. We shot the gallery out in Maple Ridge at The Ridge Studios.

Had the pleasure of photographing the movie poster for Universal Picture Entertainments “Bigger Fatter Liar” by Ron Oliver with Jodelle Ferland,  Barry Bostwick and Ricky Garcia. It’s the sequel to the 2002 hit “Big Fat Liar” starring Frankie Muniz and Paul Giamatti. We were lucky to get to shoot the gallery at The Warehouse Studios in Vancouver, Canada.

Editorial Assignment – Cover Shoot for ROB Magazine

I photographed the cover story for Report On Business Magazine a while back for their article about the messy takeover of Safeway by Sobeys. It was a pretty interesting assignment to photograph, I got to combine both my conceptual studio still life with my more eerie fine art work such as the the series Deserted and Silence.

The cover was also nominated for best magazine cover at the Magazines Awards by the Canadian National Media Awards Foundation.

I’ll start of with posting this guy, his name is Laurent Potdevin and he is the CEO of Lululemon, I photographed him earlier this year for The Wall Street Journal and the article was published over the summer. Since then I have actually been back at Lululemon twice, photographing him for both Forbes Magazine and Canadian Business. He is a popular man!
