Temptations was originally created as a personal project as marketing towards my commercial and advertising photography clients as well as prospects, but it’s very exciting how much other attention the series is generating!

New Work – Pink Shirt Day for RETHINK

Earlier this year I had the pleasure of working with Rethink Vancouver on a great campaign for Pink Shirt Day. A fairly simple but nonetheless fun little project to work on and photograph…

“Pink Shirt Day. On February 25, 2015 we encourage everyone to wear something pink to show that we are all working together to prevent bullying in our schools, in our communities and online.”

Recent Exhibitions

I have had the pleasure of being in two group exhibitions in the past month.

First up I had “Silence” exhibited in the group exhibition “The Dark Of The Night”  at the PhotoHaus Gallery here in Vancouver. As always its great to see ones work on the wall.

Secondly I had the full series of “Temptations” exhibited in the “Lab Art Show 2”, a mixed art show by Glitz Entertainment over 2 days in the fabulous Heritage Hall on Main and 15th here in Vancouver, this was a very busy and entertaining event and it was great to be a part of it.

 

I will leave you with the images I had in the shows. They are all for sale in limited edition prints, if your interested or just wish to see them in print, don’t hesitate to contact me.

Personal Project – Temptations part II

As mentioned in my earlier blog post I have lately been working on adding still-life in to my photographic vocabulary. The series consists of 8 images of everyday things you might need, might think you need or just want. (But my advise would be to leave them alone, at least in my 8 “cases”)

They will soon be added to my Portfolio Site . But for now I will post a few at a time here on my blog. Today I’ll give you 3 more. ENJOY.

Personal Project – Temptations part I

Lately I’ve been working on adding still-life in to my photographic vocabulary. The challenge with the project was to be able to transfer my style from my “people”-photography into still-life. As a result I created a new series about temptations. For now it consists of 8 images of everyday things you might need, might think you need or just want. But my advise would be to leave them alone, at least in my 8 “cases”.

They will soon be added to my Portfolio Site . But for now I will post a few at a time here on my blog. ENJOY.
