The JPS Trio

Saturday, October 24th, 2009

I’m a little late on posting these, but last month I did some band shots for the JPS Trio. I wanted to include in this post that they were filming a video at Henotic tonight, but sadly it was canceled due to one member catching “that thing that’s going around.” Ugh oh!

Mike

Monday, October 12th, 2009

This weekend I somehow managed to sneak in some time to shoot my co-worker Mike, who found some cool b&w shots of Lebron James he wanted to emulate… and has a girl he wants to impress and send some photos to :)

Brad

Friday, August 21st, 2009


Last weekend I second shot a wedding for Michael Warf in Calgary, and it gave me a chance to spend the next day with my friend Brad who will be moving to Vancouver soon. Brad is an actor and a crazy fun to hang out with, and I just had to do one more shoot with him before he heads West. We hit up Inglewood, and only slightly got in the way of a wedding party (and many pigeons).

Extreme Pogo!

Friday, May 29th, 2009

Trevor has recently purchased a pretty intense pogo stick, so we’ve spent some time at lunch this week photographing his up and coming skill! Warf brought his Alien Bee and found a very long extension cord, and we worked Trevor to the point of exhaustion – apparently these pogo sticks are a lot of work!

Mike, the athlete that he is, made sure to take his turn on the pogo stick too.

Vegas (Part I) – Alan

Sunday, March 8th, 2009

I managed to find a bit of time in between all my dance practices to go through a few of my photos from Las Vegas in February, and the easiest to start with was Alan Thompson Jr.


(I used one of his recordings for the music on the slideshow.)

Alan used to play piano at Disneyland; hopefully if you visited the park during the three years he worked there, you had a chance to hear him on Main Street, because he was (in my opinion, at least) the best piano player they ever had! He was always able to attract a huge crowd with his playing, and even though he doesn’t work there, he is still legendary… guests are always asking the current piano players if he still plays there!

It’s been over a year since I heard him play in person (FAR too long), but I at least was able to visit with him on my trip. He made two day trips from California to Las Vegas, a nice little bookend to the WPPI convention!

He’s one of those people who doesn’t like having his photo taken, so I ended up with a lot of silly poses that “better not end up on the internet” (I guess they’re just for my own photo album), so I later on got stealthy and tried shooting him when he wasn’t paying attention. Am I a bad person for coercing people against their will into photoshoots? ;)

If you want to check out his mad playing skills, just search for “Alan Thompson piano” on YouTube! My favorite is Grim Grinning Ghosts; I taped that back when I hardly knew the guy. I’m just sorry it was taped from my lousy point and shoot that I still want to drive over… but it got the job done.

Fashion Shoot at the Pool

Monday, February 9th, 2009

On Sunday I got to partake in one of the most exciting shoots I’ve ever done! A group of photographers made up of Lethbridge folk and Calgary Strobists got together with the U of L swimming team, a group of models, a fashion designer (Caitlin Power), a makeup artist, and a scuba diver (Chris) for what can only be described as epic. Michael Warf, Kevin Logan, Cody Belter, and I split off to do head shots of the swimmers while the other photogs set up for the fashion shoot, and then we all headed to the dive take window to take part. All the models and swim team must really be commended for the great work they did… their jobs were not easy!
