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.

BC Hydro- Advertising Campaign – TAXI

Earlier this year I had the pleasure of working with the great creative people at TAXI‘s Vancouver office for a small Spring Lighting advertising campaign for BC Hydro. The campaign was shot as a collage so the images would both work individually as well as together next to each other as platform posters at skytrain stations around Vancouver.

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.

New Work – Remains

 

New Work: REMAINS

The series Remains portrays a handful of World War II bunkers located on the Danish West Coast in the Oksbøl Military Firing Range close to Blåvandshug. The firing range is the largest of its kind in Denmark. 
The bunkers were part of the Nazi regimes Atlantic Wall, stretching along the coast from Norway in the North, all the way to the Spanish border in the South. Close to 5000 kilometres of concrete fortifications and other defensive measures.
The bunkers exhibited in this series were all originally built in the sand dunes but are now, after decades of erosion and exposure to the elements, slowly being swallowed up by the Atlantic Ocean
It is unknown how long these relics will remain. For now they still stand as a strong reminder of the past.
