Cop & A Half 2 – KeyArt – Universal Pictures

Photographed the key art for Universal Pictures Cop And A Half: New Recruit, it was a fun day working with the legendary Lou Diamond Phillips and the up-and-coming star Lulu Wilson. New Recruit is a sequel to the 1993 Cop and a Half with Burt Reynolds and Ruby Dee.

Grizzled veteran detective Mark Simmons (Lou Diamond Phillips) can’t seem to catch the “Badge Bandit” – the city’s serial prankster who’s causing mischief and embarrassing the police. Karina Foley (Lulu Wilson) is a spunky 12-year-old who dreams of being a cop. She stumbles on Simmons’ stakeout where she proves she’s got serious detective skills and tech-savvy smarts. While Simmons wants to ignore Karina, the police captain does the unthinkable and teams them up. While on their mission to stop the “Badge Bandit,” the unlikely duo goes on a hilarious, action-filled adventure!

As always it was a pleasure working alongside the local film folks. We shot the gallery out in Maple Ridge at The Ridge Studios.

Editorial Assignment – CB Magazine – Laurent Potdevin of Lululemon

I had the pleasure of visiting Lululemon again after having photographed an editorial portrait of their CEO Laurent Potdevin for The Wall Street Journal earlier. This time it was for a feature in Canadian Business Magazine.

We got to photograph Laurent in his office at the Lululemon headquarters in Vancouver. We did a wide environmental portrait and used a 4ft seamless behind the subject to separate and frame him. This was a request from the photo editor as this has been a concept and theme they have used in multiple editions of the magazine for these kind of features. We had a quick scout before the shoot day to find the best spot and which seamless colour would work for the concept and location.  For lighting we used a 3ft octabank as key light and a shoot through umbrella as fill and flood light. I think it all turned out well.

 

LAURENT POTDEVIN
A former president of Burton Snowboards and Toms Shoes, Laurent Potdevin joined Lululemon Athletica
in January 2014 with a mission to put product quality and image stumbles behind the clothing retailer. Today, one can only conclude he has succeeded: Sales should surpass US$2 billion this year, aided by overseas expansion and
a healthy 4% growth in comparable store sales, and the stock is once again testing its all-time highs. Born in Switzerland, Potdevin holds both an MBA and a master’s degree in engineering.

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!

Kindergarten Cop 2 – Key Art – Universal Pictures

I had the pleasure of photographing the Kindergarten Cop 2  gallery shoot for Universal Pictures. It’s the sequel to the 1990 comedy film Kindergarten Cop with Arnold Schwarzenegger. It’s directed by Don Michael Paul and starring Dolph Lundgren and Bill Bellamy.

Assigned to recover sensitive stolen data, a gruff FBI agent goes undercover as a kindergarten teacher, but the school’s liberal, politically correct environment is more than he bargained for.

Its was a fun shoot with lots of kids(obviously) and included a bit of the good old Scandinavian rivalry between myself(being Danish) and the Swedish Mr. Lundgren.
