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.

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.
