Not as intended

Sometimes, when working on a shoot things don't go quite as planned.

In this case it was a shoot for friend/hairstylist Jen Mathison. We were trying to get some photos published in a salon magazine and unfortunately they were not picked up for publication. They were shot in a specific style with simple, high key lighting as per the magazine's creative brief. Unfortunately they were declined and so they have sat unused.

So, after a few months of stewing on them, I decided that they would be best used in some more creative endeavours. Once I decided on the images to alter, I processed them in Photoshop CC using double-exposure, blending layers, and colour mixing techniques. The end result was a set of three, painterly portraits...

Dark Mermaids

The flip side to my fresh, clean beauty shoot with MUAH Elena Ismail... Dark, wet haired mermaid inspired models. Models: Enry [The Family Management], Emily Rose, Jayden and Kristin Linkletter [unsigned]

Enry [The Family Management]

Enry: a stunning, unique face that I had the pleasure of photographing a few weeks ago; she has huge, expressive eyes and an elfin look that harkens back to the 60s and model icon Twiggy. I look forward to working with her again in the future...

Travel advisory and hiatus

Hello! Please note the following: I will be travelling out of the country from November 1 to 25 from Lisbon, Portugal to Rio de Janiero, Brazil.

I will not be available for bookings or responding to email during that period of time due to spotty internet access and - hello... vacation!  If you wish to follow our family adventure, please follow my personal Facebook page.  Once back in Vancouver I will be replying to all outstanding emails in the order in which they were received, please forgive me if there is a delay in communication.  For urgent matters, please call me directly at 778.231.2825

Also, upon my return, my family and I will be transitioning from house, to temporary basement suite in mid-December as we continue moving forward on plans to build a new home in 2015. We will be focusing on moving, purging, storing and prepping our current home for demolition! With all the upheaval coming through the month of December, plus the holiday season, I will not be taking/working on any studio or location photography bookings until 2015. HOWEVER, if you wish to purchase gift certificates for future lifestyle sessions, headshot and fashion portrait sessions, please feel free to get in touch and we can discuss your needs. Please see my Giving the Gift of Memories for more information.

I will be resuming a more regular schedule and will re-open for bookings in early 2015 once 'life' has settled down.

Thank you for your patience and continued support, I truly appreciate it.

Peace out...
