Trevor Bird from Fable Kitchen & Top Chef Canada

I recently had the opportunity to do some photographs for Aaron Alexander and BcBuzZ(@bcbuzztv), the subject was non-other than Trevor Bird(@83TBird), local food advocate, owner(and chef) of Fable Kitchen(@fablekitchen) and as he puts it himself:

“Best loser of Top Chef Canada season 2

I did some still shots while Aaron was doing his video interview and luckily there was also time to setup and do a quick little portrait.

Make sure you head on over to BcBuzZ and check out the video where Aaron gets up-close & personal with Trevor about the new restaurant, life on Top Chef Canada and the Vancouver restaurant industry.

Anyways, enjoy the pictures below and go check out the interview here.

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!
