There is one thing you can say about Montreal… we love our festivals!  And in this year of the 375th anniversary of the city, there are plenty to go around.  Many festivals are dedicated to music and arts (Osheaga, IleSoniq, Jazz Festival, POP Montreal,..) but Montreal’s foodies are well served with the YUL Eat festival.… Continue reading YUL Eat 2017 | Quai de l’Horloge | Montreal Event Photographer

Sweet Roger | Artist Portraits | Montreal Portrait Photographer

As much as studio sessions can be fun, there is nothing like booking a few hours and heading out with someone to make some portraits… walking the streets (always with a certain plan of course), making images with what inspires us. And that was the case a few weeks ago with David Rozon, the singer/songwriter… Continue reading Sweet Roger | Artist Portraits | Montreal Portrait Photographer

Food photography … on the fly | Montreal Event Photographer

As much as you plan, as much as you discuss with a client, as a working professional, you always need to be able to deal with any situation.  And that is sometimes easier said than done.

A wedding story | Alyson and Cristian | Montreal wedding photographer

It is about time I blog up these images!  It was a few months back that this amazing couple got married.  The day started off really hot and humid [insert random joke about their wedding night here] and only got worse from there.  The rain hit about 10 minutes before the outdoor ceremony.  Let me… Continue reading A wedding story | Alyson and Cristian | Montreal wedding photographer

Montreal invests… in books! | Montreal Event Photographer

In this digital age, where kids are stuck in front of their gaming screens while adults check their Facebook, it was a bit of a throwback to cover the opening of a new public library.  Well, new may not be the word, but the investments made by the city of Montreal (for whom I was… Continue reading Montreal invests… in books! | Montreal Event Photographer

Grand Lark – Promos and live shoot | Montreal Concert Photographer

There are two things when you do concert photography that go hand in hand… live shots and promotional shots.   You often don’t have much time to get your promo shots done, and are often stuck with shooting in or around the venue.  So taking advantage of what you see and acting quickly is key.… Continue reading Grand Lark – Promos and live shoot | Montreal Concert Photographer

Three little girls and lots of laughs | Montreal Portrait Photographer

Here is a little preview of some images I shot last weekend with three little clients who were all laughs and energy!  Dancing, posing, laughing, playing little games… and that was just me!

Food for thought at Freshmint | Montreal food photography

I was contacted earlier this year by Pemako Films to be part of a food photography/videography project for local company Freshmint, which produces high quality tasty food and delivers to your door (only available in the old port area).  The project ping ponged between short videos, photos, longer videos, behind the scenes photos, no video,…… Continue reading Food for thought at Freshmint | Montreal food photography

Saying I do, 5 years later | Montreal Portrait Photographer

While I’m usually busy shooting in a photo pit at a rock show, in a mold filled abandoned building … I do love portrait sessions.  Having that one on one with a person (or in this case, a couple), getting to know them in the few hours we have together, reading into who they are… Continue reading Saying I do, 5 years later | Montreal Portrait Photographer

Cooking up some headshots | Montreal Headshot Photographer

A few months ago, Daniel contacted me to get some headshots.  He has a cookbook coming out and needed a shot (or three) for “about the author” page of the book.  I chatted with him a bit about availability, themes and ideas of where to shoot.  We had some good brainstorming ideas, but settled on… Continue reading Cooking up some headshots | Montreal Headshot Photographer

Eco Style | Mile End | Montreal Portrait Photographer

Had another session with one of my favorite eco fashion bloggers, and good friend, Emily a few weeks ago.  What is eco fashion?  Well, what Emily does is go through thrift shops, church sales and clothing swaps and puts together outfits and then blogs about it.  A great way to show that you can reduce… Continue reading Eco Style | Mile End | Montreal Portrait Photographer

Fall family session | Montreal family photographer

I think the only thing better than having a family contact you to do some family portraits is having the same family contact you over and over again.  I did a family session a few years ago with these wonderful people in an apple orchard.  This time around, they wanted something with a more Montreal… Continue reading Fall family session | Montreal family photographer

A Wedding Story | Montreal wedding photographer

I’m a storyteller at heart.  When I was a kid, I wrote short stories and started a novel (true story).  In CEGEP, I dabbled in film.  As a photographer, I love telling a story through my images.  Receiving comments on some of my show photos from fans that they can feel the energy and almost… Continue reading A Wedding Story | Montreal wedding photographer
