Cambridge’s charming Old Mill Inn was the perfect venue for Rachel and Andrew’s elegant wedding ceremony and reception. Although the day was drizzly (and even a little snowy at times!), the magnificent waterfront view provided a gorgeous backdrop for friends and family to celebrate with the happy couple.
A fun shoot I recently worked on was for a lovely Quebec company called Mont Echo Naturels that creates natural skincare products made from sea buckthorn oil. Since they had just redesigned all of their packaging, they needed new pictures of the products that they carry. The resulting images were used on their website, in product brochures, and in subway ads (Montreal’s metro system). You can learn more about them at their website and see some other images from the shoot there too!

A long-standing Christmas tradition in Toronto is the Church of the Holy Trinity’s volunteer-run performance of the Nativity. December 2012 marked the 75th anniversary of The Christmas Story and the group reached out to me the previous year when they needed an event photographer to shoot a series of images from a live production for marketing and publicity purposes. The images I shot ended up being published in print publications such as newspapers and theatre events guides, as well as posters, postcards, and so on. Check it out the next time you’re in town!
During a recent real estate photography shoot in Montreal, I had an awesome time shooting this striking room.
This was my first time ever visiting Pennsylvania and I was struck by the beauty of its rural areas. This one lake/river area was particularly eerie, as thick drafts of fog rolled across the water’s surface.

Happy Easter, everyone! Enjoy those creme eggs while they’re still in stores
What do you do when the endless months of winter and snowstorm are finally threatening to beat you into submission? Simple. You fight back with the cheeriest thing you can think of. Luckily for me, today that happened to be strawberries and molten chocolate.
It’s always fun to see your work in print. In April I did a shoot for the Independent Music Program at Seneca, since they needed pictures for their graduating class’s upcoming album. It was a pretty large group and very easily distracted (as musicians tend to be) but lots of fun all the same! Click through below to view the gallery.

Behind the scenes of any big production is often exciting and simultaneously confusing to behold. So much goes on and it’s become my favourite part of any project, since that’s where it all comes together. Tons of mundane, ordinary acts combined to create something magical.
Recently I’ve talked to a number of people, all of whom were wondering about what really goes on at a photoshoot, so I thought I’d post a few before and after pictures of one shoot to show the process.
Part 1: Through the mess of cables here, I had staged a little underwater camera surrounded by sand and shells. You can see all of the blue gels covering the lights, which added to the final lighting effect.
Part 2: In this second shot, I somehow managed to submerge the little camera on a tilt (thank you clear fishing wire) in an aquarium holding several gallons of water. Drop in a few Alker Seltzers and fizzing bath bombs for bubbles and you have….
Part 3: Using Photoshop to combine the dry and wet images together, you get this. The process may not be glamourous, but the result is worth it
