    Big thanks to Positive Side Magazine for assigning me to photograph Christian Hui for the cover and profile shots. I had the greatest time meeting and learning more about Christian while photographing him in his apartment and by the AIDS Memorial in Barbara Hall Park.  Christian has overcome many obstacles and challenges in his life but has successfully become an accomplished HIV activist and works to mentor and educate others living with HIV, to read Christian's story, see article here: http://www.catie.ca/en/positiveside/fall-2016/profile-back-brink

    I'm truly inspired by his incredible journey.

    Thanks to Veronica for all your assisting help!

    Feeling Florida - Gulf Coast Dreaming

    The Gulf Coast provided some extreme weather conditions, a tropical storm and lots of rain, but we were still able to get in some beach days and enjoy the nature and beach activities that Florida has to offer.   As you can see from the pics, I'm a bit obsessed with palm trees.

  • Forbes Magazine Photoshoot

    Forbes Magazine Photoshoot

    Big thanks to the senior photo editor at Forbes magazine in NYC who assigned me to photograph Kik Messenger's founder, Ted Livingston in Waterloo.  Due to quite a few restrictions, I was told to only photograph Ted in a candid and natural way "fly on the wall style" while he was being interviewed by the Forbes writer, Parmy Olson who flew all the way in from the UK just to do the interview during lunch at the Bauer restaurant.  

    Thanks to Parmy for helping me to get Ted to pick up his phone which was what the photo editor wanted for the shot.  Big thanks to Chris for helping to navigate directions and photo assist.

    I seem to remember a few Forbes mags growing up in my childhood home. Dad if you are up there reading another Forbes article, this one is for you and for my uncle Wayne who religiously follows Forbes.

    Some outtakes from our time together are below along with a little iphone pic of Parmy and Ted braving the winter cold.
