I was asked to give a talk to the Ryerson University Business Students earlier this month about running a small creative media based business.  I love any excuse to visit Toronto and catch up with this old and very dear friend of mine, here we are in a back alley off Ossington street looking for the magic light.  We found it!

Janna Hurtzig - Winterluxe Cashmere

I caught up with my good friend Janna From Winterluxe earlier this week to load up on some of her beautiful cashmere pieces.  
Here is the recent writeup and details of where you can find her products for Fall / Winter 2016
Vancouver's #1 pre-loved cashmere upcycler has arrived. Janna Hurtzig, you might say a philosopher of accessories design (going strong since 1998!) launches her own five-day shop Winterluxe Recycled Cashmere in Chinatown this October.

 Here is a photo from our shoot together earlier this year with model Mary-Ann wearing the winter luxe head band and neck piece

Sept. 2015 - Business Portraits

after a busy summer of travelling visiting friends and family, it's nice to get back to the business world, I've been shooting some fantastic subjects lately! September is the perfect time to refresh a business portrait. 

Summer Film Portrait Archive

Kristel in Vancouver
Clint in Calgary
Alex in Brooklyn
Shannyn in Vancouver
Greg in Rockaway Beach 
Denise in New York 
Self Portrait in Vancouver, My Homage to Vivian Maier

When I'm not shooting for a client, my choice camera is a Nikon FM that I bought in 1998, it's a sweet little black body, the lower end model to the popular metal bodied FE.  My FM has a light leak that appears randomly at the end and beginning of the rolls, I think the door gets pushed open a little bit when the film is full on one side.  It is wonderful.
