Tattoo Plus You, A Photo Story of Body Ink

Tattoo Plus You, A Photo Story of Body Ink is a photographic project that explores tattoos and why people get them. I am passionate about photographing people and art, so the chance to photograph two of my favourite inspirations was irresistible. But that’s only the half of it. The other half is that I found a lot of tattoo photography to be overly sensational and despite seeing some great art, I rarely got the story about the person.  Tattoo Plus […]

To The Arctic Circle … A Yukon River Chronicle

The Klondike Gold Rush, Diamond Tooth Gerty, The Chilkoot Trail, Dawson City, Sourdoughs — if these names are familiar to you, it’s probably because of the amazing events that happened on the Yukon River in the late 1800s and early 1900s.

Lauren Woolstencroft – 5 X Gold Para-Olympian

I took this shot for the Globe and Mail back on March 24th. The photo was a front cover shot / story about Lauren’s phenomenal accomplishments at the 2010 Whistler Para-Olympics. The story was entitled, Canada’s Golden Girl and can be viewed here, http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/british-columbia/canadas-golden-girl/article1511256/ The idea that we tried to convey was that she was on top of the world …. hence the photo on a mountain top, in this case atop Mount Washington, BC, Canada.
