From a recent shoot…

Bright side: got to swim around with an underwater camera housing for an hour on a beautiful fall evening.
Not-so-bright side: I had the song “Under The Sea” from The Little Mermaid stuck in my head the whole time.

Creative Mix Keynote

13 September '12

A short video of me rambling on about some thoughts on creativity and collaboration.

From a talk I gave at the 2011 Creative Mix conference alongside many others much more talented than I in industries across Vancouver’s creative scene (EA sports, rethink and dialog to name a few).

I think it’s easy for a lot of us to talk about tips, technique and equipment… less so to share creative struggles and process, but probably infinitely more important to our work.

Video quality was a bit out of our hands on this one, so I hope you’ll forgive some of the technical stuff and focus in on the ideas behind the talk.

… if you dig it – I hope you’ll share it.

a piece of advice for creatives… surround yourself with rad people who do rad shit.

We’re proud of our our good friends, Spencer, Aaron and Annie and the brilliant café and roastery that they’ve created. If you live in Vancouver or are passing through be sure to make a stop at Matchstick Coffee Roasters. Some of the best coffee to be had on the planet!

- a couple images we shot a few months back

- and some recent props for them in the June issue of Monocle Magazine

umm, so you know how men have that thing we do every November called “Movember” where we grow our mustaches all in the name of prostate cancer awareness? Ya, well did you know that women have their own version? Me neither – at least not until Cossette Toronto approached us to photograph their “Julyna” campaign. That’s right – Julyna.

… so women – to those of you so bold we encourage you to “try a new look” this month in support of cervical cancer awareness.

In New York this week for a bunch of portfolio showings. Figured we would show a few images of some of the updated promo cards and portfolio books we had done recently. The books were designed and built by Mullenberg Designs, and all the printing was done by our friend Jeff at Total Graphics (you may remember Jeff from a blog post we did a while back of a tour of Total Graphics).
