Jet | Audrey Hipturn

Posted on 17th October 2016 in fashion, lifestyle, portraits & headshots

Every time Audrey Hipturn (fb, instagram) and I brainstorm a shoot, it’s a dream. She’s got creative ideas and great suggestions and does the extra little bit to make the shoot magic. It’s always such a pleasure to work with her, and it makes me a bit sad that her and her partner have moved to the UK to pursue studies at school. Smart woman.

I had a friend of a friend’s apartment for a few days that was nearly empty and all white, and was able to jam pack it with humans to photograph for a few days, Audrey being one of them. Living on the island these days, it’s like a magical mystery tour for me when I book shoots in Vancouver. Late night conversations, shooting till I’m exhausted, and I usually make my way to Foundation for some delicious vegan food to loud old school rap – all a big blur of commotion.

Audrey had an idea to shoot with nachos, which I was totally on board for, but I always like to plan shoots with a few different styles to maximize the amount of photographs that I can use without it feeling like too much of the same person in the same clothes. Ah hah! His tricks.

Blonde in Black | Analissa Longoria

Posted on 3rd May 2016 in lifestyle, portraits & headshots

Analissa Longoria is a fellow photographer who’ve I’ve been lucky enough to call my friend. She has a unique eye that’s studied far more then I have of the nuances and styles of some of the legends. I admire her vision and respect her own style that is emerging from her exploration.

And I managed to convince her to sit in front of my lens! (consider this quite the feat)

I was blown away by the emotion she gave me, such simple and elegant body posture that spoke so much to me. Her fearless spirit jumped right in.

All shots were done with natural lighting.

In Thought | AmyLynn Emm

Posted on 17th May 2015 in lifestyle, risque

I’ve shot AmyLynn Emm (see previous shoots) a couple of times now, and every time we seem to align quite beautifully in our projects to create something fiercely sexual yet still very casual. I really quite dig it.

Maybe this one wasn’t so subtle as we had a swanky hotel room at the Sutton Place Hotel in Vancouver to shoot in.

Drag my Heart | Ann Narky

Posted on 17th July 2014 in fashion, portraits & headshots, risque

Ann Narky is a very foxy lady with a go big or go home attitude. When I pulled up to location she was standing outside her car fully done up and ready to rock and roll as homeless bottle collectors pushed their fully loaded shopping carts on by. She had the props, the outfits, refreshments, the hair, and the attitude ready. A dream to work with.

We did the shoot down in the warehouse district of East Van, just south of Terminal and east of Main.

As usual, my trusty Canon T1i and 50mm 1.8 was used.

I Walk the Line | Abby Normal

Posted on 26th May 2014 in fashion

Abby Normal (Tumblr, fb) is an interesting bird. She’s a no holds barred bubblegum-zebra stomping her way into a new sphere of expression, unabashedly. An admirable character trait, to say the least, and she’s a babe. She is also the brainchild of Rent Cheque.

Yes, she is usually NSFW.

So I sent out a message to my circles that listen that I was going to be in Vancouver and Abby sent me a casual message about being a model, if I needed somebody.. “Of course!” I said.

She proposed the train yards, and that’s how it started. As we shot I actually felt like I was – with Abby’s guidance – uncovered a whole new love affair with Vancouver, a side that that can only be found walking the out of way places.
