Gabrielle in the pouring rain

October 28th, 2007 3 comments

I met up with Gabrielle on Saturday to shoot some photos in the rain. I was expecting a little bit of rain, or some off and on stuff, but shit, it rained so hard I almost cried when I put my flashes back in the car. Somehow they all survived, camera too. Here’s one from that day, during the downpour.

Polejams are all the hype

October 21st, 2007 2 comments

What would a week on my blog be like without a photo of Aaron? And what am I going to do all winter when the streets are full of snow and we’ve already been kicked out of every indoor spot in the city? We shot this tonight, this is the first time I’ve seen Aaron do a polejam, pretty impressed.. I would have done it in 3 tries but I wasn’t feeling it today.. I also updated my blog template to make things look a little better. Basically borrowed Erik Seo’s Blog template that he borrowed from somewhere else.

This is a photo from a shoot i did sometime in the winter or early spring with Madelaine from Angies Models. Make up was done by Erin Heather. I don’t think I ever processed any of the photos from the shoot.

Tomas – Polejam in Miami

October 16th, 2007 3 comments

This was in my top 3 favourite photos from my trip to Miami last May, I sent it along with others to all the Canadian magazines I could, thinking that maybe they’d run it.. no such luck. This spot has never been skated, for pretty good reason, it’s a vertical pole, into a wall. How Tomas looked at that and figured he could do it is beyond me.. how he actually did it, I still don’t understand.. and at 4 in the morning to boot.

Aaron – Front board pop out

October 14th, 2007 6 comments

I actually just went and got some prints made of this photo to hang on my wall because I like it so much. I’m not often happy with a lot of the photos I shoot, but this one I knew while i was shooting it that I’d like it. The skater is none other than Aaron.. of course, and the trick is a front board.

New portfolio website

October 8th, 2007 8 comments

Once again I switched up the “portfolio” part of my website, I felt like the previous version was lacking in oomph or something. So I spent the weekend going over photos and building out this flip book idea, with bigger and badder photos.

Anyways go check it out: and let me know what you think.

Aaron – Front tailslide in Ottawa

October 6th, 2007 3 comments

This shot took me so many tries to get just right, I had my flashes placed in specific spots so that the cross beam of the mirror would hide the reflection and Aaron would hide it from the other direction. I had another flash way up above me on a lightstand, and another one to the front and left behind the pillar. I couldn’t see a damn thing because it was at night, and I was determined to get the rimlight behind him. After about 30 or so odd tries, I finally had the camera in the right place to not get any glare in the mirror, and Aaron blocking it at the same time. It’s nice to have someone with enough talent to do the same trick over and over and not get mad at me for effing it up.

Aaron – bump to front board

October 4th, 2007 1 comment

This spot in Miami was cool, it’s down near South Beach where the biggest party was happening that weekend. All these hooched up ladies kept hollering at me to take their photos as they were walking by looking at me while I was shooting photos of Tomas long lens from the sidewalk. Anyways Tomas never landed his trick, but Aaron stomped this bump to front board. You’ll notice a fence in the photo, when we showed up a new fence had been put in, so we carefully removed it and put it back afterwards. I’ve always liked this photo, I just sort of forgot about posting it.. stay tuned this week and next I’ll be posting a lot of photos from Miami that I thought might have got a chance in the magazines, but never made it.

Taylor from Cover Models

October 2nd, 2007 2 comments

Here’s a high key photo of Taylor from cover models management, the make up was done by Emmanuelle Charlebois. I shot this one a few weeks ago in the studio and never really got around to going through the photos until now. I think the awkward pose and kind of moot expression on the subject fits well.
