1. Harrington/Loewen Duo “Metropolis” CD Release – April, 2014

    Allen and Laura (two professors of at the University of Manitoba) launched their first CD, Metropolis, at the gorgeous Alexus Gallery in St. Vital. In association with GroundSwell, an organization dedicated to promoting the best new music in Winnipeg, it was a wonderful success combining great food, an inspiring space and exciting new music.

     
  2. EPH Apparel Fitting – March 2014

    I tagged along when some of the guys in the Dentistry Faculty at the University of Manitoba went for a fitting at EPH Apparel’s downtown location in Winnipeg. EPH offers custom, made-to-measure clothing for less. Go check them out!

     
  3. Jessica – February 2014

    Another awesome headshot session in my home studio! Jessica, a post-baccalaureate soprano, needed some new photos. I’ve known her for quite some time now, and I’m glad I got the opportunity to take her new shots! 

     
  4. "Lost and Found" University of Manitoba Opera Theatre – March 2014

    My fourth and final year performing with the U of M Opera Theatre Program. What a pleasure it has been to share the stage with some incredible singers and great friends. I brought my camera along, although, being in the show, it was difficult to take photos! I managed to snap a few while on the side of the stage.

    I wanted to keep it simple; there is something so timeless about black and white.

    Excerpts included: Eugene Onegin - Tchaikovsky, Dialogue of the Carmelites - Poulenc, Egisto - Cavalli, and Don Giovanni - Mozart.

     
  5. Ana – February 2014

    After shooting her headshots, Ana and I wandered around for a bit and took advantage of a warm winter day in Winnipeg, which has been extremely rare this year! I’m a huge fan of her HBC Blanket Coat; the colours really popped against the stark blue palette of winter.

     
  6. Ana – February 2014

    My first project of Reading Week was to set up a mini-studio in one of the rooms in the house. Ana was the first person I got to photograph in the space and am I every satisfied with it. Plus, Ana’s new headshots look awesome (if I say so myself!). I love the tighter crop on these: it draws all of one’s focus on her.

     
  7. Markian [2] – December 2013

    Disclaimer: There will no doubt be a couple more posts from the studio rental with Markian. Haha. We wanted to shoot some new headshots in the rented space. Given I usually shoot with natural light, it was a blast to play around with a lighting set up!

     
  8. Wes – December 2013

    Another friend from the Faculty of Music at the University of Manitoba who needed some new shots done. I must say, that first shot is killer.

     
  9. Larissa – January 2014

    With her final University project-a book, featuring interviews with Winnipeg seniors!-almost complete, Larissa needed a headshot for the inside cover. I’ve known her for over a decade, and was happy to snap a photo or two! You can check out book details here, and some of her writing here!

     
  10. Geneva – January 2014 

    Starting the new year off with what I shoot most often: headshots. Geneva, a classmate of mine, needed some updated photos. After watching “The Art Behind the Headshot” by Peter Hurley, I must say, I like the tighter crop of the first image. However, for a singer, it’s always necessary to have the standard, for those features in programs.

    Looking forward to the new year and new work!
