Every photographer has their own process. Mine has very little to do with the actual photography part. I like to spend as little time in-camera as possible, and make the real magic happen in post. I wanted to show the progression of a single photo from start to finish, so I made a time-lapse screen capture of my editing over the course of several hours (condensed to 3 minutes for your viewing). Enjoy!
I treat a photo like a half-finished painting: softening every detail, painting in the shadows and highlights, adjusting every colour accent, and overlaying gritty textures. Here is a before & After look:
I understand that some photographers would prefer the original, raw version of this photo. But art is just an opinion, isn’t it? Thanks for reading!
I was excited to finally set up a studio space in the corner of the apartment. I snapped a few quick pictures of me and some objects I use on the daily, and this was the strange, but kind of cool, result. I was inspired by the American Ultra posters, and did not intend for this to be representative of anything religious. I didn’t really plot it out, but now I’ve decided that there are 6 symbolic references in this photo. Colored pencils (art), harmonica (music), journal (writing, expression), camera (work), pipe (leisure), Pippin (love, family) and the Temperence Tarot card (balance and will-power). I also added a moon because, well I’m just more of a moon person.
Here are a couple of my favorite shots from the beautiful Belle’s photo shoot. And what a wonderful model she was!

I took quite a few photos of the fall leaves, trees & plants today. I had my friend Sean (very talented photographer) take a photo of me. I spent the evening putting them together and this is the result!
My session with Ashley Shaw went flawlessly. Here are the studio finals! I used some unusual editing techniques for this one to give it that dreamy edge, creating some contrast between the darker composition and styling.
