The “Cowboy Bride”returns….


If you look a few posts down you will see a familiar face… as I photographed this clients wedding a couple of years ago. She is still a “horse person” and I guess it runs in the family as the groom is a blacksmith….

As you can see from my fine art shot….the little one already has some boots…lol.

Some well known faces…

This is my portrait of a number of Canada`s Prime Ministers and Alex Trebek, which I shot for Magna and the CBC to promote the Next Great Canadian Prime Minister TV show that airs
today. I have photographed portraits of every Prime Minister from Trudeau to Harper and this
assignment is one I have carried out for 4 years on location in Toronto.
Sometimes I have to pinch myself when I realize that I am having a glass of wine with Kim Campbell or hearing John Turner describe me as his favorite photographer. Its always nice to
get together with them and this year meeting game show legend Alex Trebek was an added bonus.Behind the scenes…he`s funnier than on TV.

Now if I can get these guys to all smile on cue…imagine what we can do for YOU!

Executive Portraits on location in Toronto



Here are the behind the scenes shots and final image of a series of executive portraits I shot for Magna International and CBC in Toronto to promote the Next Great Canadian Prime Minister TV show. I have been photographing PM’s for all of my career and have done portraits of every last one…from Trudeau to Harper. This year, Alex Trebek was the host and I had time to shoot some great stuff with the worlds most famous game show celebrity. He is a riot off camera…so we had a lot of fun.
This is my fourth year shooting the portraits for Magna International and my third year shooting the show for CBC….and their trust in my work is warmly appreciated. Not many photographers get the opportunity to do the work I do.

The final shots appeared on the covers of 7 major Canadian newspapers today with my credit
displayed from Coast to Coast. Mom and Dad…this post is for you.

The candids were shot by my assistant Frédéric Solenthaler…as you can see…I’m happy to be
out of the limelight.

Fashion and Product Photography

I started my career shooting Fashion and Glamour for Ottawa designers and models. The experience was great and led me to assignments from international cosmetics companies. I keep the rust off by doing some local sessions with upcoming models and actors. This shot is part of a major ad campaign that recently appeared in Vogue and InStyle. We have worked with Jessica
Simpson, Clean, and Fusion Beauty creating websites, ads and posters.
Here is the website for Keratin…which I think is really nicely done. We also shot all the product photography that appears on the site and the packaging.

Ottawa Life Magazine Editorial Cover

The current issue of Ottawa Life features our work on its cover . We had a great time shooting these stylish women in our studio and creating some cool executive portraits for the inside spread. I wanted to create a relaxed look and give it a fashionable edge. Preplanning the cover
layout was half the work….shooting the ladies…easy.

Tom Hanson

Today I spent some time going over the portfolio of Tom Hanson who passed away suddenly at 41 yesterday. We met occasionally on assignments that we both carried out for Time and Canadian Press and only last week I was admiring his shot of Stephen Harper in Times Square.

Tom was one of the good guys. A great eye, and a concern for industry rights. He is gone too soon.

Live every day they say….condolences to his family.
