This morning was an early photo shoot for World Health's Real People, Real Results campaign. Here's a behind the scenes shot, can't wait to see these up on the billboards.
I was tasked with photographing Corey, butcher and owner at Edmonton's ACME Meat Market. We started off with a few normal photos, but decided to have a little fun with the shoot. I like where we ended up!
I've been photographing some interiors lately for a local Edmonton builder. I think the photos turned out well if I do say so myself!
I had the privilege of photographing Katherine and Michelle Plouffe, two of the top female basketball players to come out of Edmonton. After their time at Harry Ainlay high school Katherine went on to play for Marquette University in Milwaukee, WI and Michelle played for the University of Utah. Both Plouffes played for the Canadian National Team and this past spring Michelle was selected as the 19th overall pick in the 2014 WNBA Draft to play for the Seattle Storm.
I came up with this concept for an ad about a year and a half ago and it feels great to finally execute it. This was a challenging photo shoot and required heavy retouching. I'm very pleased with how it turned out. Now, if only building muscle were that easy!
I wanted to try something different with this fitness portrait. Most of my shots focus on the individual, but for this photo I wanted to focus on the activity and the blending of the subject and the equipment. I'm pretty stoked with how it turned out.
Teresa loves to shop, but more specifically, Teresa loves shoes! At first I wasn't sure how to photograph her passion for shoes, but things just kind of came together. We decided to bury Teresa in all 154 pairs of shoes that she owns.
If you ever want to get your ass kicked in an awesome way, go for a HIIT class at Blitz Conditioning. I had the honour of photographing their head shots and this is a fantastic team that will make you sweat.
If you don't know The Lingnan, then you don't know Chinese food. The Quons have been feeding Edmontonians since 1947 and the dynamic family has been featured on a number of reality shows. Miles has been running the restaurant for the past few years and I wanted to capture his authority and passion in the kitchen. I think the black chef's jacket was a nice touch!
I had a new seamless to test out and Kim was the perfect subject for the photo I had in mind. We were going for a simple professional portrait.
I always like handing out my business cards because they're a conversation piece. When I was designing them I needed the concept of the card to relate to photography, but I also wanted to make sure that they wouldn't easily end up in the garbage. I haven't gotten sick of them yet, I guess that's a good sign.
