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.

Featured on Photography Served by Behance

I recently had a few of my portraits featured on the front page of Photography Served by Behance. It’s always a great gesture and an amazing site to be featured on and as they put it themselves, they showcase “Curated work from leading creatives on Behance”… which is a great group to be amongst!

In the past my “Carman, Manitoba” and “Fence” series’ has been featured on Behance as well.
