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.

New Work – Pink Shirt Day for RETHINK

Earlier this year I had the pleasure of working with Rethink Vancouver on a great campaign for Pink Shirt Day. A fairly simple but nonetheless fun little project to work on and photograph…

“Pink Shirt Day. On February 25, 2015 we encourage everyone to wear something pink to show that we are all working together to prevent bullying in our schools, in our communities and online.”

Featured on Photography Served by Behance

I recently had a few of my portraits featured on the front page of Photography Served by Behance. It’s always a great gesture and an amazing site to be featured on and as they put it themselves, they showcase “Curated work from leading creatives on Behance”… which is a great group to be amongst!

In the past my “Carman, Manitoba” and “Fence” series’ has been featured on Behance as well.
