Tyler’s Water Project

Every once and a while a passion project consumes me. I have no choice but to run with it! Tyler made this easy. Just watch this and you’ll understand.

This one hit me when I was about 4 months pregnant, so I thank Tyler for his patience as it took a bit to get it completed!

VENICE QUEEN EP Release Party Tonight!

 

A few weeks ago I made these guys hike to the top of a hill, climb over trees and cross a stream so that we could take advantage  of this rockface for their shoot.  It’s been such a blast working with these guys.

Venice Queen  is:

Ryan Bloom – Vocals
Yuji Suzuki – Guitars
Mark Iachetta – Guitars
Sean Bales – Bass
Mike Oliviero – Drums

 

They’ve been getting great reviews and tonight’s their EP release party at Joe’s Apartment on Granville so if you’re looking for something to do I highly recommend popping by to support some amazing local talent.

When I went to shoot their last gig I spontaneously shot some video as well…
Check out the video we threw together for So Much More

Recently I had the opportunity to shoot head shots for my dear friend Lauren Bowler. This woman is a serious triple threat and graces the Vancouver stages contstantly.

You might not recognize her as the motion cap icon for “Barbie”, but get a load of her real talent at the Stanley theater in the Arts club’s High Society. It runs until June 24.

George Bowering

Read the full Article for the University of Victoria Torch Alumni magazine here

And here’s a few of my favorite outtakes:

I’ve been playing with video and editing and took this opportunity to get George in action.

Though George is a prolific Canadian novelist, poet, historian and biographer, his personality proves comedian. I have to admit that I was in a constant state of shock and disbelief just from listening to him talk… and then there’s the pictures to prove his lack of concern for my camera in front of his face.

You can go ahead and read his books, but here’s a little personal insight that you might never see.

  • Walking through his house was like perusing an art gallery.
  • He couldn’t get through Life of Pi which makes me feel much better for dropping it after chapter 3
  • He’s a bit of a bad-ass. Like I had to edit out a lot of stories that may have been slightly incriminating. I imagine that an evening of wine and scotch would be quite entertaining.

I love when Torch magazine calls me up.  They always send me to shoot inspirational, accomplished and entertaining subjects.
