This blog, while generally pointless and mostly consisting of the aimless pandering of a 20-something trying to make his way into the wonderful world of professional photography, is my own personal outlet. I post photos, works in progress, upcoming projects, failed ideas, and other random tidbits of information. It is for the most part self-serving.
I went to art school, so I guess that means I have a predisposition towards things that are weird and different.
I’m a die-hard Nikon shooter. If you give me a Canon DSLR I won’t know what to do with it.
I love film, and not just your garden-variety that’s-for-sissies-35mm-film. I’ve been known to make cameras. I’ve built a 4×5, an 8×8, a handful of pinhole cameras and experimented with hand coated, glass dry-plate photography. For some reason there’s very few examples on this blog. I should get on that.
I’m a font snob too. One of my favourite fonts lately has been Interstate although anything big and bold will do in a pinch.
I hate bad design.
Oh yeah, I forgot this part: I’m a graduate in photography and design from U of T. I got my start in the photography world as the assistant photography editor of The Medium, UTM’s campus newspaper. From there, I moved up to Photography Editor, where I eventually helped to co-found UTM’s first student-run magazine, Medium Magazine. I now photograph full time for Ganz where I shoot mostly catalogs, and freelance for my upstart, Oh Boy Photography Co.
