Editorial Assignment – Eric McCormack – Professionally Speaking

Earlier this year I had the pleasure of photographing Vancouver/LA actor Eric McCormack(Will & Grace) with his former drama teacher Mort Paul for Professionally Speaking by the Ontario College of Teachers. The article was just released so I thought I would share the results.

Thanks to MUA Sonia Leal-Serafim and assistant Daniel Mark for helping out.

New Work – Not Quite Right

I’m happy to share this new work with you!! It’s a series of four gentlemen not quite getting their – wardrobe, I suppose – right. This was a great conceptual project to work on… but also a little long as I originally only photographed Carl(the guy with the red tie) and intended to leave it at that… It was only later, while brainstorming for a different shoot, that I realized it could be turned into an interesting little mini series.

You might also recognize a few of these faces(which btw, all belong to some great actors here in Vancouver) as I earlier have shared some closeup portraits of them. The series was also recently featured over on Wonderful Machine.

Anyways, enjoy the images below.

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 – James Lougheed

Thought I would share this fun little shoot I had a little while ago with you – let me present James Lougheed, a Vancouver actor, comedian… and drifter(not the hobo kind but the burning rubber race car thing) – A slightly diverse resume I would say.

Here are some of the shots we got, enjoy!

(And don’t forget to join me on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook if you are into any of those things.)

New Work – Carl Montoya – Vancouver Actor

Not to long ago I had the pleasure of having Carl Montoya in my studio for a little conceptual portrait shoot.
Carl is an up-and-coming actor in Vancouver, an overall awesome guy and a fellow soccer fan! – which btw is a rare find here in Canada… but then, as the name might hence, he is (like me) not from these waters either.

ENJOY

New Work – Tommy Douglas (again) +1

Ok, at a glance the title almost looks like a mathematical equation, but fear not, it all makes sense… Just keep calm and carry read on…

I recently had Tommy Douglas back in my studio for a small session, I am saying “back” as I also had the pleasure of shooting him earlier last year, if you missed it you can see it HERE.

This time around he also brought his girlfriend Lauren(the +1), who actually jumped in front of the camera as well(se below). Tommy is doing pretty well for himself, and back in December when I shot him he was busy filming for the TV show “Almost Human” with J. J. Abrams as one of the producers.

Anyways, here is some stuff from the shoot, ENJOY!
