It’s another month down in the 365-project and it’s getting difficult to come up with new ideas day-after-day. I’ve managed to write up a huge list of potential photos, but sometimes, none of them feel right for the day.
That said, I’m still very happy to be doing this. It’s keeping me on my toes. My favourite photo of the month has to be the one above. Continue reading “Project 365: February”
January has meant beginning a new photo project, namely, a 365-project. For lots of people, this means taking a self-portrait a day for a whole year, but I’m not that fond of self-portraits, so I’m doing a shoot-anything-a-day.
It’s definitely stretched me to come up with new ideas or sets every day, but I’ve already come out of it with some new favourite photographs, and I’m only a month in. Continue reading “Introducing the Project 365”
As a final project for my photojournalism program, I spent some time photographing and documenting the Cochrane Humane Society. This project was very important to me and I can’t think of another organization I wanted to work with more.

It’s nice to see my work (the top-left photo only, the other two were not taken by me) popping up places. I’ll be in a couple more publications coming soon, but more on that when they come out.
Every year, photography students across Canada are challenged to create a new advertisement for Bridgestone Tires. At each qualifying school, there are prizes for first, second, and third place entries, with the first place entries going on to be judged for a final grand prize.
Since a lot of the material Bridgestone sent to us emphasized the safety of their line of tires, I chose to go that route for my photograph. My friend Desiree had recently given birth to a lovely little girl, so I asked to borrow her baby and stick her in a tire. Of course, Desiree said yes. Thank goodness my friends trust me!
So this was my entry for the contest and I won first prize at SAIT for it. Unfortunately, I didn’t win the grand prize, but I can’t complain about where I finished!
