I don’t shoot black and white. Yes, I know I shoot digital and anything can be converted to black and white. But, it’s not the same. I believe to shoot truly good black and white photos, like with any style of photography, you need to know what you’re looking for first and how you’re going to get it. I don’t shoot black and white. Well yes, you might say my ‘light’ photos are black and white. And I shot those. […]
This week I came back from the dead. I finally shook that nasty flu I had. For 8 days I was sick and only started to feel normal on the 9th day, this past Sunday. Being sick sucks. And on that note, I digress. So what did I do this week? Well, for starters, I finally – shouts of exuberance and joy – painted my apartment. Some people scoffed at the idea of wasting money on a rental, but for […]
There are so many different styles of Portrait Photography out there. And so many different Photographers to choose from in Toronto, that it can be overwhelming trying to figure out who to go with. I myself love so many different photographers and they all have different styles of shooting. Often, very different from the way I shoot. And that’s okay. The important thing is to know how you’re going to use the final image and what you want the final […]
I love doing Family Portraits, especially in Toronto’s High Park. That’s my favourite. But above that, I love hanging with cool families. So I’m once again doing Family Mini Sessions this year. It’s a way to get a few nice photos of your family, and update your photo wall, at a budget price. It being a ‘mini’ session, we shoot for only about 15 mins, and focus on getting some good group shots. Dates are: Sat Oct 3rd at High […]
Well, not completely. I’m about 90% recovered. And I’m faced with a Monday that I can get back on track with – again. It always feels like I’m starting over. I guess I should be used to it by now, having done it so much, it seems. Maybe it’s an incremental growth. I keep taking these teeny tiny little moves forward and though at times it may feel like I’m being blown all the way back to the beginning, in […]
And I’m blogging from my couch, wrapped up in a fleece blanket in between coughing fits and using text to speech to write this blog. And it sucks. Because I didn’t think that I was going to be sick this long. In fact I had felt I was well enough yesterday and then all sudden I took a turn back down again. And it sucks because I had momentum going and this sickness has sort of gotten in the way […]

I loved working with E-Lisa. And can’t wait until we shoot again. This shoot was for an upcoming beauty line – but we got to have a bit of fun at the end.
