Fall Colours

The fall colours in High Park, with leaves rustling in the breeze were a perfect backdrop yesterday for a photo shoot with Angela Saini, a  very talented Toronto area singer/songwriter/guitarist, for whom I was privileged some time ago to do my first album cover for her recording “Leap”  (Great album by the way!!).

Working with creative people such as musicians, writers, actors, dancers and artists is always very rewarding, and it’s no exception with Angela; I always see the songwriter’s spirit in images of her.

The image below is digital, but I also shot some black and white film; I can’t wait to get it developed!

Around the Corner

I like pictures of paths and stairs. They are like stories, inviting you to follow them and find out what is waiting for you, just around the corner. This image is from Taylor Creek in Toronto, last weekend.

Camera-Phone, Steampunk Style

From my steampunk shoot with talented author Rebecca Diem who has just published The Stowaway Debutante, a fun steampunk read. I had the idea for the prop (the world’s oldest camera-phone? :-) ) some time ago, and this shoot was the perfect time to use it!

Sabrina 1

I had the pleasure of working with Sabrina, (the daughter of a theatre friend of mine) on Thursday. As someone with both dance and theatre experience, Sabrina was a natural when it came to posing and expression, and needed next to no instruction.
