Editorial Assignment – Laurent Potdevin, CEO of Lululemon for The Wall Street Journal

It’s time to get some updates up on the blog again. I have been neglecting it for the last few months as it has been a very busy time.

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!

A while back I had the pleasure of photographing David Baines for Western University. As a stock reporter for the Vancouver Sun David Baines made a lot of enemies while uncovering the dark and shady sides of investment businesses in Vancouver. He was named the “Most Hated Man in Business” by BC Business Magazine, been sued coutless times, received death treats and on one occation notified by law enforcement that someone was shopping for a contract on his life!

As an alumni from Western University they where looking for some conceptual portraits of this interesting man for their Alumni Magazine. Below are the images we created. Enjoy

New Work – Unimpressed Kid

Here is a new piece I thought I would share. Please enjoy this conceptual portrait of a kid who is slightly unimpressed with his meal… frankly, I probably would have been as well. (At least I think it was the meal… it could also have been that his brother was sitting next door playing Game Boy in the studio lounge… Now – I’m saying Game Boy(it looked like one) not even knowing if thats still a thing? – But for the sake of kids nowadays I hope it is! I remember spending a summer (when I was a kid) doing gardening, painting and whatever else my parents could come up with for $2/hour to save up for one – but thats another story I suppose – I did finally end up with one though!)

And if you think he looks familiar… yet not. I might be because I’ve photographed his younger brother in the past, you can check him out HERE (if you forgot or just feel like it).
