Distinguished Gentlemen’s Ride - Toronto

I recently had the pleasure of working with the Movember Foundation photographing the Distinguished Gentlemen’s Ride; a global motorcycle fund-raising event to raise awareness of prostate cancer and male suicide prevention. 

To see so many folks driven by this cause left me energized. A big thanks to the Movember Foundation for giving me the opportunity to participate in raising awareness. Take a look at this dapper bunch!

Studio 202

I had the pleasure of meeting some like minded creatives this weekend during a collaborative session at Studio 202. Our 2 hour time slot flew by and I was super pleased with the results from the afternoon. So thankful to have been surrounded by fun, creative, new friends. Thought I'd share a few photos from the shoot.

Amanda + Cole

My cousin will be getting married in the spring, so we got together for a cheeky little engagement shoot last weekend. We picked a perfect time of day to take some pics. 

Amanda and Cole have been together since high-school (15 years ago!), so this was definitely a special shoot for all of us. I feel blessed to call her my cousin and it goes without saying, Cole has been as close as family for the last 15 years.  I wish them both all the happiness and success in their adventures to come and I can't wait to be there celebrating when they tie the knot. 

True love can be very hard to find, but when it exists, it's not hard at all to see. 

 

Black & White Vibes

Current events have brought me back to rendering my photos to black and white. It's been a while since I've shot something with the intention of a B&W final edit and I've got the feels for it like it's new all over again. I thought I'd share a few shots from the past week or so. Enjoy!

Autumn Views

This afternoon we ventured out to Dundas Peak with our cameras. It was so packed with people, so it was an accomplishment just managing photos without strangers in them. That being said, it was such a great hike!

Looking Back

I've finally created a shiny new space to share some photos I've taken over the years. As I'm reminiscing through hard drives full of content, I find myself realizing 2 things in particular. 

1. I shot A LOT of shit. I mean, I've been very lucky to have been basically using the World to learn and evolve in photography, but man, I've taken so many crappy photos. My style has changed so many times along the way as well. Maybe better, maybe not, but the point is I'm still inspired to pick up my camera. 

2. I've had the ultimate pleasure of meeting so many amazing people from every end of the World. Sifting through all my "oldies" has really given me perspective on how privileged I've been to have crossed paths with everyone you'll see in my photographs. 

I guess I'll always continue to evolve with what appeals to me enough to photograph. That being said, I'll be happy to share it here going forward.
