Hold on.

So, some exciting things are in the works. First of all.
  • Tiesto with guests: Hardwell, Datsik, Excision and Downlink is on the 28th! Tomorrow!! I've been looking forward to seeing all of these acts for quite some time now, and I can't believe they are all playing under the same roof! FLIPSIDE events sure know how to give Kelowna the best shows and 
  • An upcoming photoshoot with a couple. Shooting my my photography mentor and friend Janelle Morcombe of Paperclip Collective. Check out Paperclip collective HERE. 
  • Also, check out whats been playing through the speakers over the last few weeks for me: TV on the Radio's "Nine Types of Light" Album. This isn't one to miss. Check out the music video to the single "Will Do" to get a taste.

Feeling the need/ want to blog in heaps lately is sort of odd. It almost feels like the old days where I'd make dumb little depressing blogs about everything on my mind, how I straightened my hair for an hour and hated the place around me. 15 years old with too much angst back then, who knows. Guaranteed: this blog wont have any of that garbage. Anyways, back on topic, this is my fella friend Mary Scott, a thrift store adventurer and Vancouver kid who exceeds in being socially awkward (which is a good quality these days)...  We've shot together once and I look forward to the next- hopefully sometime near the end of the month. It will be prepared and definitely less rushed. I love shooting someone with class like this. This will be fun and free. la la la. Shots for shots.

Floating ideas

I've been thinking about doing a photo project for a while now, dealing with complete strangers I meet on the streets as the main subjects. Something has always fascinated me about the connection you can gain with anyone, anywhere, at any given time. The idea of connecting with someone through a camera and a simple idea is beyond compelling. Whenever I've roamed the streets of Vancouver or any city in the Okanagan, I've always seen a few people who would have been great subjects for this plan and made me wish that I had my camera or the guts to even face them.  This idea was Greatly inspired by Benoit Paille's "Stranger" set, which can be viewed here .
   Deciding that this will be an interesting and challenging way to work with people.. Who knows who I'll meet and the stories that could come from these experiences. This project will be ongoing and continue to develop with time. I hope to get this ball rolling and keep it going where ever the road takes me. Let's hope I don't get into too many dilemmas along the way...

Here are a few sampler shots I've taken that got me rolling with the initial idea-

The beginning...

So, I have decided to start my blog today. Not too sure as to what will be posted up here, but I'm thinking it will be a nice mixture between my work, things that interest me, and a splash of personal life. This will be a place where I will post frequently with photos, stories behind the photos, and anything else I find relevant or worth sharing with the masses. So, this is the beginning to my blogging journey. Welcome, hope to see you around. Keep posted here and check back every now and then!
