This week my partner Gage and I photographed a pretty rad group from Guelph called VERSA. One of the band members also happens to be my cousin. The audiovisual collective is led by Monika Hauck and Alex Ricci. We wanted to work around this year's Winter Stations in the Beaches and also capture the essence of these neat people. An element of their band that is really unique is that they pair the music with projections that visualize sound, so I incorporated a couple of their projections into the photos as well. Here are a few of my favourite shots.
Avoid the crowds and camp when it's slightly cold and rainy. It's worth it to have this magical place all to yourself.
I hope you love new skies
And my carefully curated allies
The flowers that blossom in spring
And the fear that changes bring
Now we're lit up by the city
We're so itty bitty
The pond where we live has grown
But really, so have we
Taken during a time of transition.
These photos were shot throughout February on 35mm film we found at a garage sale for $1.
Some of the first moments of the year - often a result of waking up on a free day and saying 'let's go somewhere.'
Here are a couple of my favourite moments from the last wedding my partner and I shot. Kelly and John found us through Instagram and we were very excited to shoot the wedding of two people we didn't already know! We were also a little nervous - but that went away very quickly after meeting the ultra laid back couple. Photographing a wedding in this case barely felt like work. The location was beautiful, the people welcomed us as if we were there as guests and it's truly an amazing experience to be around people who are happy and celebrating such a milestone day.
