One of my favorite recent projects to work on was the Fall Campaign photo shoot for Cadillac Fairview. I got to work with the most amazing team on this huge production to create stunning images!! Here is a sneak peek at the day in studio. :)
I recently got to work again with my favourite Ottawa based team on this editorial for MINT magazine: stylist Erica Wark, makeup artist Melody Iafelice and hair stylist Kirsty Macdonald, as well as Angie's Model Tara, who did an amazing job. I fell in love with both the 20s to 70s inspired styling, as well as this beautiful Victorian house we shot in! <3
I LOVE when my visions are brought to life. :) I have wanted to shoot this editorial for a while now.. Earlier this week, I teamed up once again with one of my fave makeup artists Alexandre Deslauriers and model Lauryn from Sutherland Models, and for the first time with super talented hair stylist Matthew Lill (P1M) and fashion stylist Joelle Litt (Judy Inc). I got to capture the amazing looks put together by the team at some beautiful locations around The Beaches. Huge thanks to Neda Ahmad for following us around and capturing those behind the scenes. Full editorial coming soon!
I had such a fun time shooting this new story in Gatineau Park with the beautiful Stephanie and Ottawa based makeup artist Taryn Miller! Featured in SOME magazine's latest issue.
So much fun this past weekend shooting fashion editorials at the studio! I teamed up with some of my favorite creative people in the industry: makeup and hair stylist Alexandre Deslauriers, stylist Lea Krpan, new face Inde from Sutherland Models, and Tye, also from Sutherland, for a "Old Hollywood" inspired men's editorial. Then I teamed up again with Lea and makeup artist Irene Sy for three other editorials with 3 up and coming Spot 6 Managements models. Here are a few behind the scenes shots!
I hadn't been in Ottawa in a while so I was really happy to have the opportunity to shoot again with an incredibly talented team - stylist Erica Wark, makeup artist Melody Iafelice and hair stylist Kirsty Macdonald always do flawless work! We put together this fashion editorial for Switch magazine, featuring Montreal based jewelry brand Don't AsK, and model Brittany from Specs Models who was perfect for the story! x

I recently got to work on this fashion editorial with one of my favourite teams : stylist Amanda Fox, makeup artist Alexandre Deslauriers, and hair stylist Daniel Fortunato for the new issue of Fave Men magazine. We worked with four ginger models to create this barbershop inspired story shot at Bellwoods Barbers.
- What makes a great photo?
It's many little things that come together. It's about the concept, the idea, the creativity (very important). Its about the lighting and the retouching / post work that completes the creative process. Yes, composition makes a strong photo. But a stronger photo, is a photo that speaks. Its about the emotions that comes through. When you manage to make emotion the center of an image, you have a great photo.
- What makes a great photographer?
Curiosity and continuous need to learn. When we photograph, it's our soul that takes over - we see things with our soul, not our eyes. Like any artist, letting inspiration come to you, and using it when it is there. A stronger connection with the inner child. I think that's the main qualities that a photographer needs to be a great one. Forget about all of the technical stuff. As much as I love lighting and little technical details, over the years I have come to realize that if it comes from the heart and soul, it cannot go wrong. That's what art is about.
