About MeI'll just get this out of the way right off the bat. Yes, that really is my name. I didn't change it from anything, I'm not some pretentious douchebag. It's the name I was given just like you were given yours.
So get over it.
After a lengthy hiatus I've finally returned to the Photography scene, not that I expect any of you to know who I am.
I specialize in low lighting situations and often use nothing more than a flashlight for some of my images. After that, the subject doesn't matter. I'll spend an hour lighting a can of soup if I have a shot it mind, but when I'm done it will be the coolest f***ing picture of a soup can you've ever seen.
I love light. Playing with it, bouncing it, intensifying it, bending it to my will and painting with it. Anyone can take a picture, but the real art is and always will be in the lighting no matter if it's a candle, full studio lighting or just the Sun and a piece of foamcore. If you don't understand lighting then in my opinion you are not a photographer, you're a picture taker.
But I digress.
My official title is "Digital Multimedia Producer", which was bestowed upon me from Guru Digital Arts College in Edmonton, & means that not only can I take/edit your pics, I can build you a logo, a website, press package, promo video, or all of the above.
I'm also a Photoshop professional & would love to do some fantasy/sci-fi TFP shoots, so if you're from the Edmonton area hit me up!
Like the saying goes, people only care about your latest work so I've uploaded some FX shots that I've done over the past couple of months. (NSFW) I've been busy with other projects and haven't been able to shoot as much as I'd like, but that's all about to change now that my partners and I have our own cavernous studio space...
I'm all over the place with what I shoot, so if you have some crazy idea that nobody else wants/is able to do, chances are I'll do it.
If you can dream it, I can make it. There IS no box.
