Recently I collaborated with Shel Zolkewich to shoot a series of food shots celebrating the menu of the Churchill Wild Lodge. Shel did the food styling and I did the photography.
The gang at Churchill Wild were fascinated with the process of assembling these shots and did a profile on Shel and I on their blog:
Hours and hours of work can go into one shot.
“Even longer if you have to pick the cranberries off the tundra,” said Zolkewich with a smile in her voice.
“You see a beautiful photo of food and you think it looks great and so appetizing,” continued Zolkewich. “Then you sort of delve into why it’s working for you and why it’s hitting all your triggers. What you think it might smell like or taste like. There are a hundred little details that may have gone into that one photo. Like scouring the cupboards of other people’s kitchens and my own searching for all kinds of props to make it work.”
Just a small sampling of portraits I did for the on-air personalties for 94.3 The Drive and QX104. Always fun to photograph the people who entertain and inform the public for a living, they bring so much to the shoot.
Getty Stewart came by for new photos for the new website. I’ve know Getty for a few years, seen her talk at TedX, and other presentations and she is one of the most wonderful people you’ll ever meet. I wanted to make sure I captured the warm engaging smile she’s know for. We had a lot of fun doing these protracts.
The Winnipeg Art Gallery produced a series of behind the scenes videos of our Modern Day Heroes shoots. as you can see we had a lot of fun collaborating with these amazing people to find poses that spoke to their chosen abilities but also referenced some the concepts the ancient artists strived for in the work of Olympus.
recently I photographed in the legendary Rae & Jerry’s for Ciao magazine. Head chef Bill Georgakopoulos was very gracious and accommodating to the crew as they focused on the growth in the catering business. It’s always fun to spend time in this venerable institution
Here’s a project that in progress. but i wanted to share these behind the scenes video by Leif Norman
As part of Olympus, we’re partnering with local athletes and sports teams to celebrate modern day gods and goddesses. Watch for more heroes over the coming weeks, and stay tuned for information about our upcoming exhibition of the photographs by Ian McCausland. – See more at: http://olympus.wag.ca/myth/modern-day-olympians#sthash.0fagnaA2.dpuf
