tl;dr summary: now you can buy my images on Stocksy.com! When I left my job to pursue professional photography, I told myself I’d try it for 6 months, and if it didn’t work out, I’d find another desk job or maybe go back to school. I didn’t even call myself a “photographer” for the first [...]

We shot everything from vampires to burlesque dancers to ghost children. Here are a few nightlife / bar themed images from the shoot: You [...]

As you probably already know, NDP leader Jack Layton passed away four days ago after his battle with cancer. This afternoon I headed to Nathan Philips Square and took some pictures of the memorial set up outside City Hall. It’s quite amazing. Almost all of Nathan Philips Square is covered in chalk messages to Jack, [...]
Since most Canadians have politics on the brain due to today’s election, I thought it would be a good idea to post some film stills I did for the CBC/Gorilla Media television series Make the Politician Work. The series takes Canadian politicians and puts them in workplaces related directly to their own areas of responsibility [...]

The Toronto Zombie Walk is this Saturday, October 23rd! This year I’d like to offer a trade. I’m offering free studio portraits for zombies in costume in exchange for a signed model release so I can use the pictures. My studio is located at Queen & Spadina – a few blocks from Trinity Bellwoods Park. Make [...]
A few weeks ago, I was contacted by the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation because they needed a photographer to do a couple of extra headshots for their Run for the Cure campaign. The bulk of the campaign was already done, but I took pictures of David Peterson, the UofT Chancellor, and Erin & Mike from [...]
Those of you who know me know that I’ve been contributing to iStockPhoto for around a year and a half. My goal has been to become exclusive with the company, which means that amongst other perks, I have the opportunity to raise my royalty rate (from 20% to a maximum of 40%). Those of you [...]
