West Coast

I decided to take a break from winter and hang out on the west coast last week. Didn't take too many photos but snapped a few on my phone in Vancouver and Los Angeles!

If California was in Canada, let me just say ther wouldn't be much keeping me from living there! Who wants to pay me to live in Cali?

PROTEST THE HERO

Happy New Year everyone!

Here are some photos from Protest The Hero's last Toronto show of 2014 at Danforth Music Hall. It was a big year for them, finally wrapping up the touring cycle for Volition after a solid couple year straight of extensive touring around the world and this show was a great way to wrap things up. 

2014 was a busy year and 2015 is looking to be a good one too!

Bridgehead/Beau's

I've been busy shooting a few new videos for the wonderful people at Beau's All Natural Brewing and Bridgehead Coffee in Ottawa. Hopefully the first one will be coming by the end of the december and the other 2 early in the new year.

I'll be sharing my instagram posts on my blog now in hopes of training myself to post here more often!

New Site

Hello all!

Welcome to the new blog/website. I'm working on transferring previous blog entries from my last site which is why the next post is from 2 years ago. I will be posting all of my new work here from now on and hopefully will be doing so a lot more often.

thanks!

Detroit -TICTP Tour

So here I am, in Cleveland, OH, on my 3rd day into this tour. For the rest of these guys, the tour is actually coming to an end with only 10 days remaining! I'm so happy to join this fine group of gentlemen and they've made me feel very welcomed over the last couple of days. There are some pretty lengthy drives remaining, but i can't wait to cover every part of the next couple of weeks. This first post is from Detroit! This was a pretty crazy show, much better than I had originally anticipated. Detroit blew my mind; not only was it my first time in Detroit, but it was my first time in the States at all! Extremely cheap beer, industrial sites and abandoned buildings littered the landscape. Downtown detroit, which seemed to have been a thriving urban center, has been reduced to a cluster of abandoned skyscrapers and offices. It's quite the sight.

Photos from Columbus and Cleveland are coming in the next little bit!

Amos The Transparent

Last week I met up with my friends in Amos The Transparent to shoot a few new promotional photos for them! I'm not going to show them all right now, but this one I really liked... [see below] If you haven't already checked them out, make sure you drop by their facebook page or website and check out their new album Goodnight My Dear...I'm Falling Apart. Also check out the photos from their cd release show at ritual from a few months ago.

Tomorrow morning I am taking off to meet up with Today I Caught the Plague on their cross-US tour with Protest The Hero! Check out the dates and come out and say hey!

Today I Caught The Plague

As some of you may already know, my good friends in Today I Caught the Plague are currently on a 4 week tour supporting Protest The Hero through the United States! A bit over a week ago, they played their tour kickoff show at Ritual here in Ottawa and asked me to drop by to take a few photos. I will be joining them on the road for the last week and half of their tour as of April 10th! So if anyone reads this from Detroit or anywhere on the east coast of the states, make sure you check out the tour dates on their facebook page.

The Social Book Exchange

I may have mentioned this before, but a good friend of mine, Mr. Aaron Cayer, decided to start up an amazing little skateboard company here in Ottawa by the name of Antique Skateboards. Since it's inception, Antique has put a huge push on the development of the skateboard community culture in general here in Ottawa. Antique has put out a team video, hosted a wide array of parties and once a month, they host the Social Book Exchange. The SBE encourages everyone (not just skateboarders) to come together and trade your favorite books with anyone willing to read. Aaron has organized this into a great little social experience and it has become a hit! On March 10th, Antique will be taking things to the next level and will have their very first store front opening here in Ottawa on Bank/Florence! See facebook for all the event details, but I guarantee the opening will be a great time and Antique will continue to grow to become a essential part of this great city.
