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

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.
