About MeThanks for checking my profile here on ModelMayhem.
I have been taking photos or video professionally for the past 8 years in Edmonton, Vancouver and Las Vegas. I started in Edmonton back in 2004 in independent film. I directed and starred in a short mockumentary which garnered some local attention and ended up showing it at various film fests around Edmonton.
In 2005 I started working for a video company which was setting it's sights on web video only which at the time was not as common as it is today. Did a lot of video gathering work in the sports world for curling and hockey and then started work on what would become my life for the next two years down in Las Vegas.
In 2006 I received a work permit to work and live in Las Vegas for a start up called RawVegas.tv. The website was a network sort of like how FunnyOrDie is now. We covered everything Las Vegas from the strip, to the poker world, to MMA to red carpets to Cirque to well, you get the picture. I bought my first DSLR while I was down there and my attention turned to still photography.
In 2008 my visa expired so I moved back to Canada. Wasn't ready for full on winter so I moved to Vancouver. While in Vancouver I developed relationships with marketing companies, specifically Dead Famous who I work with on a regular basis. I shot all the original branding for the Burrard Hotel which is a boutique style hotel right in downtown Vancouver.
I continue to work with them in a commercial advertising branding capacity and I have found that this is where I like to be. I can be creative within the scope of the project and still get my day rate :) I still love to work on creative projects however so don't be shy, ask me!
Recently I moved back to Edmonton, my home town, to avoid the rain mainly, but also to put a lot of work into my business and start shooting more and more in Edmonton. I hope you take a look at my portfolio and get a feel for how I shoot.
