I was out shooting for The Sociables at the Trisko and Principals Year End Party: Heroes and Villains held at Fortune Sound Club. A more comprehensive review can be found at thesociables.ca written by Elysia Rotaru. I was just there to take photos. Read further below to see how I took these photos.
These are photos from another of Vernard's events that I shot for "The Sociables" @ thesociables.ca. It was the BUN Sesso 2012 Collection with Jennyfleur Loves & Rogue Fashion Shows. The venue was Chinois in Yaletown.
I was called in at the last minute to provide coverage last day of Vancouver Fashion Week 2012 (Spring/Summer 2013 Collection).
I've shot at VFW a bunch of times before at the Empire Landmark Hotel, and I knew that venue inside and out. I headed out thinking it was going to be more of the same.
But it seems things have changed in the last few seasons I missed.
The venue was the Chinese cultural center, a major improvement in my opinion, way more room and high ceilings make the whole operation feel like a bigger production. Most importantly (for me) it had superior lighting that I'm sure many other shooter appreciated too.
These are some photos I took while getting footage of the various designers. I got there in time to catch six of the shows: PINGHE, Daniela Villa, Farida Lalji, SODDI by Solon Diego, Y!D.N.A. by Andy Hoan Nguyen, and George Bezhanishivili.
I was commissioned by QMG (queermediagroup.com) to cover the Pride Parade this year. Last year we had the abstracted parade route due to various awkward problems, but it was much better this year, going most of the full length around downtown.
The Verge is an independent web series being produced by James Choi.
Carole is a run of the mill, average girl living aimlessly in Terminal City. When a mysterious stranger blackmails her in to committing murder, she finds out that she is naturally talented. And that those she kill are more than human.
This is a short video about a New Zealand fur seal that I encountered in my work. I was shooting a nature documentary and this was a solitary female New Zealand fur seal that was just sunbathing in a secluded cliff side beach.
New Zealand fur seals are a species of fur seals. They have long flippers that lets them move very quickly on land, and are known to be quite aggressive to annoying humans.
When you encounter wildlife in nature, I recommend you leave them alone. Approaching wild animals is quite intrusive and stressful (for them), and may be very dangerous if they decide to be aggressive. The difference between a bro and me is that I have insurance coverage for dismemberment by wildlife.
It was another event by Vernard Goud from LUVNGRACE Entertainment, and I was invited to shoot at the event. Vernard's events always have all sorts of things going on, and involves a fusion of a variety of elements of culture and art. Featuring Eva Chen's "Elegance" collection, commercial photographer Erich Saide, Golden Brush Art: Bill Higginson + Richard Ma and Diane Reyes + Carole Lagimodiere, Make Up Artist Alysia Hamilton, and a bunch of other people and things going on.
I haven't done any fashion shows in a long time since I was busy on assignments shooting film. I even missed Vancouver Fashion Week this year, so I was looking forward to coming out to this.
Eva Chen's been showing for her awesome style at various events, so if you follow fashion you probably seen some of these already.
