New Publicity Work For Young Bombs

Had the pleasure of having the Vancouver-based electronic duo Young Bombs in the studio to update some publicity material. They have already released a string of popular remixes and they don’t show any signs of slowing down. Make sure to check them out on Soundcloud and give their Instagram/Snap Stories (youngbombs) a try as well( they’re pretty funny!).

This was my second time photographing them. It’s great having them in the studio as they’re always up for some experimenting.

Editorial Assignment – The Most Hated Man In Business

A while back I had the pleasure of photographing David Baines for Western University. As a stock reporter for the Vancouver Sun David Baines made a lot of enemies while uncovering the dark and shady sides of investment businesses in Vancouver. He was named the “Most Hated Man in Business” by BC Business Magazine, been sued coutless times, received death treats and on one occation notified by law enforcement that someone was shopping for a contract on his life!

As an alumni from Western University they where looking for some conceptual portraits of this interesting man for their Alumni Magazine. Below are the images we created. Enjoy

Editorial Assignment – Mark Tyndall for Vancouver Magazine

Late last year I had the pleasure of photographing Dr. Mark Tyndall for Vancovuer Magazine. Mark had just been appointed director of the B.C. Centre for Disease Control when I photographed him (which was right when the Ebola “panic” was at its high!). It’s also a Black and White photograph, which – as you might know –  is a little rare for me, nonetheless I think it turned out great.

On another note I also just passed a 1000 followers over on my Instagram which is a minor milestone I suppose:) Thanks for the support!
