Union Carnival at Downsview Park

Union Carnival at Downsview Park

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.

PR, live art, and condos.

PR, live art, and condos.

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 [...]


My Little Everyday

My Little Everyday

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 [...]

Re-edit and a throwback

Re-edit and a throwback

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, [...]

Robbie Burns Day for the Grid

Robbie Burns Day for the Grid

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:

The Dockers

The Dockers

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.


Eddie Adams Workshop applications are open. Apply.

Eddie Adams Workshop applications are open. Apply.

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, [...]

Comi-Con gave me the confidence to say: "I am a Fanboy"

Comi-Con gave me the confidence to say: “I am a Fanboy”

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 [...]


Initial expansion of 'Underground'

Initial expansion of ‘Underground’

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 [...]

Street Photography in the Rain -- St. Clair and Bathurst

Street Photography in the Rain — St. Clair and Bathurst

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.

Super Mini Project

A quick mini project on photos that show relation between two photos. A sorta before and after relation.


Support for Egypt in Toronto

Support for Egypt in Toronto

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 [...]

York Campus-scape.

York Campus-scape.

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.

Fall is leafing it's mark, no?

Fall is leafing it’s mark, no?

The picture is a pun! A couple shots to do with fall. Sports, fashion, weather, and leaves. It’s all here.


Birds in the Sky

Birds in the Sky

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, [...]

Eddie Adams Workshop

Eddie Adams Workshop

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 [...]

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 [...]
