Shooting in the rain

On the morning of this shoot i got a call from my subject about an hour before call time asking if i had seen the sky. I took one step outside looked up and prayed. Typically rain means delays and cancellations but on this day it meant pray. Dina is a member of my Rotaract club…

The turn up

This week’s post features singer/songwriter Tebby Burrows.  This particular shoot was inspired by Tebby’s new look. As someone that was used to what was once her long straight hair i was a bit taken aback by the cut. But I loved it and knew i had to get her in studio. For this session Tebby…

Mocha

Much like a lot of my other creative friends one of my favourite spots to think, create,  edit (and enjoy free wifi) is at a Starbucks. So there i was one afternoon sipping on my white chocolate mocha cappuccino when i turned to my right and saw the lovely Jade Thompson. I spotted her sitting…

Faith and Family

There are few things more important in life than family. I recently had the opportunity to provide family portraits for my pastor and his family.

The Other Side

I can recall many many years ago when an adult asked me ‘What age makes you old?’ The  answer to that question has haunted the last 5 years of my life. 30. I celebrated my 30th birthday recently by doing something that I don’t do often; taking photos. I’ve never liked having my photo taken…

The Kinky Project

I can still remember on Sunday afternoons when my sister would have her hair straightened for school. She’d get one of the chairs and place it out in the doorway of the kitchen and wait while the straightening comb heated up. When the comb reached the desired temperature she would proceed to have her hair tamed and…

Why Breathe

I suffered from asthma for years as a child. I’m all too familiar with the panicked feeling of struggling for air not knowing if a breath would be my last. I’m also familiar with the relief that comes from an inhaler or being hooked up to an oxygen tank all night at the local walk…

Compassionate Christmas- The Zion Project

Its amazing how our perspectives on so many things change as we age. I look now at my niece who told me last week “Three more weeks until Christmas.” and responded “Oh really?”. I had to check my calendar because I was not keeping track of things. But she is right. Christmas is right around…
