Cuba Street Photographer

March 2016

Havana – Santa Clara – Trinidad – Cienfuegos – Havana

CubaStreetPhotographer 16 ASEI love the unexpected nature of the streets. Going out and photographing, not knowing what lies around the corner. Surprises, opportunities, serendipity, stillness .. Life. There is always something. Walking around in Cuba, it was hard not to see the beauty in the most simplest of things.

At the start of our trip, I was too much in my own head. Trying too hard to make images work, worrying about composition, framing, lighting, movement, contrast .. everything. As soon as I let go, enjoyed being in the moment, things started to click.

I walked and felt so much clarity in the thoughtlessness of walking around. Just smiling, being with people and the streets and then the photos just happened.

Trips like this are refreshing. I get to spend time with my thoughts, meditate in full awe of this amazing planet we live on. I need these trips each year .. It was India a few years ago, Myanmar last year and this year, Cuba.

Here is a preview and a few of my favourite images from 2 weeks in a land of so much colour and beauty.

Thank you Cuba. View full post »

Fantasy Farms Wedding

New Years Eve 2015, Toronto

Jessica + Bernard

What a way to end the year 2015 …

FantasyFarmsWedding001

I flew out to Toronto to hang with Jessica, Bernard and their awesome family and friends. We’ve only met a few times, but from the moment I landed in Ontario, I felt I was with family.

Jessica and Bernard chose to have their wedding back at home in Toronto, on New Year’s Eve with family flying in from all over the world and around Canada to be with them at Fantasy Farms. It was an epic party, made even more epic because they started the new year and their new life with everyone that means so much to them.

I feel truly honoured to have been a part of your day guys ..  It was magic.

Here are a few preview images for now ..

Camila and Joe

Camila and Joe tied the knot in style at The Diamond in Gastown on Sunday. Starting with a beautiful first look at the Four Seasons, we then strolled around Gastown for some more portraits before heading to the ceremony and a relaxed evening of cocktails and canapes before some pretty crazy partying.

Here are a few preview frames from a day filled with so much love and joy.. Honoured to have been a part of this one.

Congratulations Camila and Joe!
