I posted about my portrait session with Brooklyn musician Fjóla Evans a couple months ago. But she recently had a new website designed around my image and it looks so great I just had to share it. Click through and explore her music!
I’ve photographed various aspects (some less than legal) of the marijuana industry for several years as I worked on my It’s Medicinal project. So I jumped at the chance to create some dramatic portraits for Report on Business’s cover story about Canada’s changing marijuana laws, which go into effect today, and the big players paving the way forward.
The video below explains the new laws and the various challenges, with footage shot by me. The whole article by Craig Offman is definitely worth a read!

I’m excited to finally share some promo images I shot for The Bay of their new shoe department - the largest in Canada. There was so much ground to cover that we had to pull an all-nighter, starting as soon as the last customers left and pushing through until the staff arrived in the morning!
Joya Banerjee - HIV/Aids and Sexual Health Advocate
I recently had the pleasure of photographing Joya Banerjee, a health advocate that works with both large corporations and governments, as well as grassroots organizations, to launch health initiatives around the world. Take a look at her great TEDx Barcelona talk about what led her to help launch the Global Youth Coalition on HIV/AIDS!
Before leaving for New York I had the pleasure of spending a few days shooting (and eating) at El Catrin for interior designer firm Munge Leung! It’s a beautiful space with a breathtaking mural, glowing skulls, and a great patio with giant fire bowl. The space has an amazing atmosphere and transports you away to a warm festive land for the night.
This type of job is why I love doing editorial work - a fascinating subject, a great article, and amazing design to bring it all together.

I’ve recently had the pleasure of tasting (and photographing) the fanciest mac and cheese I’ve ever had, made by Nigel Findlay of The Chase. It’s part of Canadian Business’s ongoing series The Lunch Box Special. See the previous ones I’ve shot of The Farmhouse Tavern and Rose and Sons. Also, watch the video (below) of the inspiration and process behind this fresh take on a family classic.

As some of you may know, I’m spending the fall in New York, getting a feel for the city, working on a few projects, and meeting awesome people! Recently I had the pleasure of photographing Fjóla Evans, a musician living in Brooklyn. A thank you goes to Rachel Wine for introducing us!

There’s been a lot going on lately, but the big news is that I’m spending the fall in NYC (now until Jan)! This is the King Blue sales suite I shot for interior design firm Munge Leung through A-Frame Studio. At the time I still had my foot broken but we pushed through! I’ve been shooting a lot of interesting projects for Munge Leung lately, including several spaces in Las Vegas, so look for more one the blog.
I’ve been excited to share this for a few months and it’s finally out! It was interesting working with kids and trying to get them to do really specific things, but they pulled through. A big thanks goes to Rhobi and her two boys for all their help! It was also my first time working with Cottage Life, which was great, I can’t wait to shoot for them again.
