The big extended family Christmas photoshoot

The big extended family Christmas photoshoot

Erica's parents live about a million miles north of Winnipeg, so when they come to Ontario it's a big deal. They wanted photos to capture the rare time that Erica's family of four and her brother's family of four can be with their parents all together in one place. To keep all the kids happy and [...]
Bayley Family Fall Colours Photoshoot

Bayley Family Fall Colours Photoshoot

Rob and Erica were after the perfect fall day to capture the family photos that would eventually be featured in their 2018 Christmas card. We found it! Eloise was in great spirits and loved smiling for the camera. David was a bit tougher to smile, but I think his older sister will coach him for futu[...]
Chung Family Nature Trail Photoshoot

Chung Family Nature Trail Photoshoot

Adrian and Jenn contacted me to do a family photoshoot with them to celebrate Nathan's 2nd Birthday. We got a beautiful summer evening and tried a new nature trail and the light worked out great. Against a bedtime curfew and a toddler who had other things on his mind than posing for photos, I thi[...]
Walker Family Golden Hour Photoshoot

Walker Family Golden Hour Photoshoot

Shane and Krissy are old friends. I remember both of their children being born. Hard to believe that they are running, jumping, and huge in personality and character. I loved spending time with them and hamming it up with the kiddos while getting great smiles and authentic interactions. [...]
Creating High-Key Headshots with One Light

Creating High-Key Headshots with One Light

A nice headshot displays professionalism and is representative of your personal and business brand. In fact, next to the Home Page, the About page is the most important page on a small business website. This is why, for certain types of small business owners, it's critical to have a clean, well-lit,[...]
Creating the Photograph - Christmas Edition

Creating the Photograph - Christmas Edition

Some photographers may avoid kitschy Christmas photos; but any photographer with a 6mo old at Christmastime is going to lean in and try to capture the perfect photograph. A photograph that can be later shown to their teenaged dates and displayed at their wedding (sorry little dude, this won't be the[...]
Autumn Family Photo Session

Autumn Family Photo Session

Friend and photographer from Shutter Speed Photography, James Jackson, approached me for photos that would be part of a very special first Christmas as a growing family. Of course, I was honoured with the opportunity. Capturing Vibrant Autumn Colours Timing is the biggest challenge when it[...]
Fluxible Conference 2015

Fluxible Conference 2015

Did you know that Waterloo Region is host to one of the world's best UX conferences? Neither did I. That is, up until about a year ago when I saw Rob Barlow-Busch give an entertaining and informative talk about UX at Communitech. What is UX? UX - User Experience - is NOT graphic design or website d[...]
Breanne and Jameson Anniversary Photos

Breanne and Jameson Anniversary Photos

I recently had the pleasure of creating some photographs to commemorate Jameson and Breanne's anniversary. They are a fun, sarcastic, and easygoing couple. Even though it rained off and on for the first-half of our shoot, they took it in stride and we got some great photos. We started our photo s[...]
Portrait Session at Miovision

Portrait Session at Miovision

It's a little dangerous to ask a photography enthusiast to take a break from their day job and shoot staff portraits. When Scott from People Ops at Miovision asked, I immediately started recalling the Henry's Portrait Perfect Workshop with Lindsay Adler that I attended a few months ago (right) and I[...]
Shooting the Band Aisles

Shooting the Band Aisles

Somehow, in a fortunate stroke of luck, I've had the opportunity to hang out with Aisles and provide them with photographs. It started as a request from James (whom I work with at Miovision in my big-boy job) to shoot some photographs of his band that they can use for grants, concert posters and the[...]
Winter Photography

Winter Photography

Winter can be a challenging time for photography. The sea of white, short days, and cold weather can all be deterrents for getting outside. Fortunately, my friends Erica and Brad Evans are no wimps when it comes to adventure, so we struck out on a balmy -5 day to St Jacobs. Brad and Erica are easily[...]
Working with Leading Lines

Working with Leading Lines

Today’s project was to shoot some images with Leading Lines.  Leading Lines are a compositional element of photography where the photographer uses existing lines – made made or natural – to draw the viewer’s eye into the photo. Examples can include roads, trails, railroad tracks, rivers, etc. Leadin[...]
