As a wave goodbye to summer, here are some shots from a carnival that took place at Downsview Park, held by the Labourers International Union of North America’s (LIUNA) for their ‘Family Day’. Nothing like winning a stuffed toy, going on rides, and getting your face painted. The Super Slide can turn into a Super COLLIDE [...]
Single photo – but I am a sucker for the clouds.
Was it a PR shoot for new condos opening up by Trinity Bellwoods? Yes. Is it something I would normally post? No. It is a weird and visually cool setup? Yes. Trumped. Check it out as models hang out while party goers enjoy the official opening of some new condos. PJ’s, party dresses, picnics, and [...]
I have started a little side project that can be summarized very simply. It was about having a camera on me at all times, and then using it. It was about shooting the areas that are my everyday life, and finding the fun, weird, and beautiful in my daily trip from Bloor/St. Clair to York [...]
Right now, I am on my way to NPAC in Ottawa by train. It’s my favorite mode on transportation. You can see the landscape from the ground level, and you don’t crash when you are looking at it like you would in a car. I am re-editing my Egypt work from a couple years ago, [...]
A three image photo story of Nancy and her puppy waiting for the bus at 1:30 AM.
I’ve been doing some work for The Grid, and here is some work from one of my assignments. By the way, the size that The Grid prints their photos makes me giddy. Sampling Haggis at Mackezie House in celebration of Robbie Burns Day:
This was the fine group of people I spent a weekend with in North Bay. We are civilized. We have high-born good looks. We are the Dockers.
I had the privilege of attending Barnstorm XXIII last year. I first heard about it at school in 2009. I was in second year of the photojournalism program at SAIT, and was really trying to be proactive in learning about all the courses and workshops that were available. Walking out the door of my classroom, [...]
I got the chance, thanks to the York University student newspaper, Excalibur, to shoot the Toronto Comi-Con this Sunday. It was awesome. I have been a fan of comics since I was was given a copy of the Dark Knight graphic novel for my 18th birthday. There was a cool atmosphere, and it was really [...]
I’ve picked up my Underground project (in an open-ended fashion) again as I try to get some more concrete ideas down for another project. I want to expand the idea of Underground so that it encompasses above ground public transport as well, making the name a victim of the expansion. I love the idea of [...]
I heard recently from another photographer that the best you can do on a cloudy, rainy day is convert to black and white. I tried to see if I could prove that wrong. Here are the results.
A quick mini project on photos that show relation between two photos. A sorta before and after relation.
The riots and protests in Egypt and Tunisia have been prominent in the news cycle. It is the result of years of frustration, but what the outcome will be remains to be seen. In the mean time, there was a demonstration in Toronto to show support for Egypt, Tunisia, and the Middle East as a [...]
I am up at school a ton this semester, which has cut into my photographing time too much. I made an effort the last couple days to get some shots of the buildings on campus.
The picture is a pun! A couple shots to do with fall. Sports, fashion, weather, and leaves. It’s all here.
I can’t seem to stop myself from shooting a flock of birds. Not sure why, but whenever I ingest a card, there is inevitably photos of a group of birds. There is something about the formations and I love when they turn and the light catches the wings for just a moment. Last bird post, [...]
I went to the Eddie Adams Workshop in Jeffersonville, NY. It ended last week, and since then, I have been slowly trying to process the information overload that has plagued me since the workshop ended. I think I have come out of the shock. When I think back on the experience, I am struck by [...]
These are a few portrait shots that I did of Sara Shell. She’s a designer who has moved to Toronto to begin her new line of bags. Checkout some of her stuff here: www.442mcadam.com/
This is the new website. Please have a look at the photo essays and multimedia that are here. For the blog, I am going to post photos from shoots that I am doing, post links to other sites, and use it as a general way to communicate with the world. Nothing fancy, just a simple [...]
