“Smirnoff Splash”

Professional Photographers of Canada 2012
ACCEPTED (Illustration)

Jason’s always wanted to create an image like this so the night before the competition deadline, he started converting our garage to a studio and experimenting with capturing water splashes. The day of the deadline, he photographed and did the post production for this image. I’m not sure why the creative process is often amplified by deadlines but it ended up being a great image that did well in the salon.

anne de verteuil : fabric artist

Anne de Verteuil is a fibre artist based in Abbotsford. She recently had us photograph some of her pieces that have come out of her personal journey away from anxiety and panic to serenity.

She has allowed us to share some of the images, as well as an excerpt from the poetry she has written to go with them. She is creating a line of cards that feature her art work and poetry.

My Deceit
Dark winged creature that reigns over the secret black places of my mind,
Bind me to you with barb wire thoughts and lies of whom and what I am.

anne de verteuil fabric artist my deceit

Releasing the past,
loving my now,
I realize I am
the guardian angel of my dreams.

bugalug cinch belts : kids fashion photographer

kids fashion photographer

We may be just a teeny bit biased, but we think that the model for Bugalug‘s Cinch belt image was extra cute. She is our daughter, Lexi, who loves to pose for the camera when it suits her mood. We were excited when E-Shaw’s featured Bugalug and used the photograph.

Sundi, the creator of the Bugalug Cinch belt, sent us a sample a while ago that Lexi absolutely loves. This is high praise from a three year old who has a very distinct and eclectic personal style when it comes to her clothing! I love the belts too because they are functional and fashionable. They are reversible and have a simple snap closure that make the belts easy to put on and take off.

Bugalug also carries a line of vibrant array of fanciful barrettes, headbands and ponytail loops. You can view and order their products online at

orchid : vancouver flower photographers

Jenn has a beautiful Paphiopedilum orchid that blooms once a year and our mutual friend Julie, delivered the flower to our studio so we could photograph it. It was the day before our move so we made the set with the back of a framed print and the reflector out of a white side table. It was a welcome breath of beauty and break from packing. Here’s a photograph of it ….

kv bijou : off to the sundance film festival

Kelsey of KV BIJOU has become a friend after we connected a year ago through Facebook. She designs jewellery and recently was invited to be part of the guest lounge at the Sundance Film Festival. There was a great article on her in The Vancouver Sun yesterday. Here is half of the necklaces she’ll be taking with her when she goes this weekend.

We designed and printed a banner for her booth. Here it is on our office floor. (Jason originally was laying the other direction but it looked a little creepy with the model next to him so that’s why he’s upside down.)

The KV Bijou website has a great variety of necklaces, earings and bracelets for sale. The jewellery that she’s designed for the stars of Sundance will also be available on her website in February. Here’s a sneak peek at one of the designs she made for Sundance.
