Thanks Angela and Angelo! I had a blast at your wedding in October. 

Here’s a short featurette including some highlights. The video can also be viewed here: http://vimeo.com/81238657 (opens in new window)

Thanks to Kathy for letting me shoot her new headshots last week at Forks of the Credit. For those who haven’t been there, check out a neat place called Belfountain Conservation area. It’s a beautiful little spot, especially in the fall. 

More shots from this photoshoot can be viewed here (opens in new window)

Thanks to Kirsten and Charlie for a fun time at your wedding this September. The weather was great and love was in the air! Here’s a shot I grabbed of the guys on their way to the church.

It’s good to have talented and generous friends!

Thanks to my sister Melanie for creating the logo for Grovetree films, it’s better than what I pictured when I asked for your help! And thanks to Tony for creating Grovetree Films’ signature animation which will appear at the end of each video from now until the end of time… Or until he makes me a new one.

You both get a gold star!

My first attempt with Steadicam. It was only used for a handful of shots. This is a promo video for Maila Halenko, a registered dietician and fitness instructor in Toronto.

I shot this at an old house north of Orangeville, Ontario. It has been falling into itself more and more each year and in another 2-3 years it will be completely collapsed.

A video commemorating the life of my Opa who passed away last January.

Just a video I made one day a few summers ago. Drops. Music by Robert Fripp and Brian Eno.

There’s too much fruit knocking about nowadays, and I think this is why we’re told to eat five pieces a day- it’s to get rid of it all
