So when I am not doing band stuff, I like to travel. Pretty much wherever my car takes me that weekend. This time was to the mountains for a few days back in September, and boy was it cold! (we were tenting) Check out my full post/gallery on my photography... Continue reading

The other day I mentioned about "the state of my apartment" meaning my place has been leaking from the roof into our suite off and on for the last week (and when we moved in) So really, any time it is pouring or melting. And these warm temperatures are not... Continue reading

Oh, don't mind the smashed phone. It decided to jump out of my pocket onto the tile floor... I haven't shared a "what's on my playlist" for quite some time... usually it is a complete obsession with one album for months, but lately it's been a huge random mix of... Continue reading

I have had a bad habit on not taking any photos of my daily life, and a worse habit of not printing the ones that I did take. And it's not like I don't carry around a camera with me everywhere I go (I'm talking the iphone here...I haven't gottten... Continue reading

For the better part of the weekend, I've been editing video for the rockumentary. I haven't worked on this since the 24 hour challege back in November (YIKES!!!) Not because I didn't want to or anything, but my weekends had been pretty busy with other photo/video shoots, and editing those.... Continue reading

Last month I had the pleasure of photographing promo photos for Evan from Magnet & The Magnettes for his album release in May. We really lucked out the day we had chose to shoot! It was relatively warm and the majority of the snow from that massive snowfall we had... Continue reading

I've been using a pretty simple set up for my gear over the past few years (Canon 5D Mark III and a 24-70mm f/2.8 lens) and it works great for what I do, but lately I have been wanting to expand my gear more than ever so I can be... Continue reading

And while we are on the topic of instagram, I thought I would also chat about the apps that I use to make my instagram usage a better experience. I have to be honest, I do not like the filters that come with the app - although recently they have... Continue reading

It's no secret, I love instagram! It is a fun, quick and easy to share a second or two (or maybe more) of your day with friends, family and fans while reflecting your personal brand, growing your online presence, and building a network. Here are some quick and simple tips... Continue reading

After the video shoot for Talk Show Host, I wanted to get some updated promo photos for the band. (After all we had a stage and lights to our disposal. And there was NO WAY we were doing any outside any time soon - I think it was the coldest... Continue reading

Yeah, I know I posted this as my facebook header a bit ago with a brief blurb on it, but I thought I would share it on here as well. I was going through my iPhone photos for a photo project, and came across one image that stood out to... Continue reading

Today ended up being a very different day than I set it out to be... I was originally going to work on photos/video/web stuff/write a big blog post... but I didn't even go on my computer until just now (as I sit down to eat supper) We woke up, went... Continue reading

It seems as all my "today is..." posts come on Saturdays, and later in the afternoon (when I finally crawl out of bed and become a half decent contributing member to society) and today's is no different. ha! I was up until 3:30 last night fighting with my computer being... Continue reading

The other day Nathan and I were briefly chatting about favourite/top shows, which got me thinking - what are my top favourite shows?... To date, I have been to 39 of The Unfortunates shows spanning across 5 provinces, and over 10K km. (wow!)... I have a lot of memories from... Continue reading

Judging from the page views and comments, I have a feeling a lot of you like the behind the scenes look at how things are made, so I am going to try and do more of them a bit more frequently if I have the content to do so. When... Continue reading

It is that time of the year again, and we might have a few goals/resolutions that we want to accomplish over the course of the year. (I have my list!) Sometimes we follow through with them, but other times we might fall off that wagon and lose sight of what... Continue reading

This past Friday The Unfortunates took to the stage at The Pawn Shop. I can honestly say that this show is in my top 5 favorite shows! They brought so much energy, played some awesome new songs, and crushed their old ones! It was intense! I've never been quite able... Continue reading

I saw this quote the other day while scrolling through instagram and it could not be any more true for me... 2013 was pretty much for figuring out what I wanted to do, last year was a busy year defining styles, working hard and really figuring it all out, and... Continue reading

In November, I sucked at taking photos... It was really a downhill struggle for a while. I made it a goal for December to have twice as much posted than the previous month, and to be honest, I forgot about that goal. But I guess somewhere in the back of... Continue reading

I finally crawled out of bed at around 2 this afternoon. Shows at The Pawn Shop are always late nights (After schmoozing with everyone, stage tear down, load up into the van...) I think I got home at about 2 AM, I then uploaded and culled out the bad photos... Continue reading

Closing out 2013 I wrote "Here's to making 2014 the best year yet!" And boy, was it ever! What can I say - 2014 was an absolute INTENSE year!!! Crazy highs (and lows) throughout! Lots of laughs, hugs, stress, tears, thousands of miles travelled, a lot of photographs taken (even... Continue reading

As I sit here reflecting on the year that has passed (and work out some details on my top secret project), I can't help to wonder what 2015 is going to be like... It really needs to be something pretty special to top the year 2014 was! (But then again... Continue reading
