radial ascension representing canada in world photographic cup

Jason has two images selected by the Professional Photographers of Canada to represent Canada in the first World Photographic Cup. It is an huge honour to be selected to represent our country in his first International competition.

This image is titled Radial Ascension and was created of a glass elevator and staircase in a home in Vancouver that our client, Falcon Homes, built. Falcon Homes won several Georgie Awards for the home and it is to date, the schmanciest home that we’ve photographed.

“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.

“Found Art”

Professional Photographers of Canada 2012
MERIT (Fine Art)

These images were created out of junque that Jason collected to photograph. The left is from a pile of weeds, the center is a lens of his that broke and the right is a chunk of my hair after I cut it. They are all photographed on top of my baking sheets. The baking sheets we received as wedding gifts almost 15 years ago have now been promoted to prop status as they were spending too much time in the studio and not enough in the kitchen.

This image was originally submitted to the provincial level and not accepted as there were some flaws in the the background of the left image and a few other details that Jason cleaned up before resubmitting it for nationals. One of the reasons we do these competitions is that we receive honest feedback from top professionals in our field that help us improve our photography.

“Harmony By Design”

Professional Photographs of Canada 2012
EXCELLENCE! (Architecture)

This is the second time Jason has received Excellence on a national image in the architecture category. It is a huge honor as essentially the judges are saying it’s a flawless image that they can’t see any way to improve it. Which we all know in an artistic field is virtually impossible! This is a detail of the gorgeous Surrey City Centre Library designed by Bing Thom Architects in Vancouver.
