Vulnerability and Strength

July 23, 2015

I’ve started a portrait series that I hope to do in exclusively black and white. I say ‘hope’ because as projects grow they evolve and though my intention is to aim for real, rather than beautiful, I find the real beautiful.  And as it evolve it may turn into color. But for now, black and white is the goal. The first one. Vulnerability and strength, for they reside together.

Boudoir – A.

Did a great shoot with a fantastic lady.  We had a ball playing with light.  She was concerned she didn’t have enough ‘sexy’ wear – I think it was plenty.

Chris Owens

I’ve been a fan of Chris for years. When he chose me to shoot his newest headshots I was very excited.  I knew it would be a fantastic day, and that the results would be just as fantastic.  Chris is truly Chris when he wears his signature white tee and jeans.  So for the quintessential Chris shot, I wanted to capture that confident and relaxed vibe.  But I didn’t want just a white tee shirt. Luckily, Chris brought a light gray shirt that had the same spirit but solved that issue of having pure white on camera.

Shooting babies (which is a weird way to start a sentence) is so much fun (weird way to end one too). They have no guile, and their emotions are right at the surface.  Plus, they shine with beauty that comes from pure joy.

I’ve shot Danny a few times now, and each time is a fun, and also new.  This time we got together to create some publicity shots for his music.

When my good friend was pregnant, she asked me to shoot a quick mini maternity session with her.  The images we got in that brief time captured her joy and how beautifully calm she was about this change in her life.

I completely forgot to post these when it happened.  But cleaning up and backing up my archives I found the Rotman Business School Grad Ball that was held almost last year.

The March Family Letters

February 15, 2015
by JoH
It’s a modern retelling of Little Women, in a web series/vlog format, and the creators wanted to do a clean shoot.  The series itself is light and funny, so I wanted to make sure there was an abundance of color and playful energy in all the shots.

I’ve had the privilege of shooting Jason several times.  Each time we both walk away with some great images.  This most recent session was no exception.

Allan needed shots specific to comedy. So the focus was on light, and funny, maybe even quirky.
