RED BULL EDIT: Arbutus Warehouse Show 🎥🔄 . . . I went a little crazy with this cut, integrating a ton of techniques; Hyperlapse, 3D photos, pendulum cam, 360 rolls. . . . It was a perfect environment of interesting visuals to make use of these techniques. Thanks to good planning and a efficient workflow I was able to blast out this edit a couple days after the actual show ⚡️ . . . Would you guys ever been interested in an instagram live editing breakdown on these social edits? I’d love to discuss how and why I made these editing choices. Let me know in the comments below! . . . #igvideo #redbull #arbutusrecords #hyperlapse #editz

@nobodyfamousmovie, a feature film I shot is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video, link in bio ✌🏻 . . . I was director of photography on this feature film, we had a tight budget and an even tighter schedule but managed to pull out all the stops and create visuals I’m truly proud of. . . . This was shot on location over 9 days on the RED Dragon using Sigma ART primes and Hollywood blackmagic filtration. I shot at 5k and 6k mostly for a 2.39:1 4K finish. Aside from the wide landscape shots, myself and my team of 2 augmented and lit every shot in the movie. The most powerful fixture we had was a single 2K fresnel so daytime interiors were tough and night time exteriors even tougher. . . . Myself, my gaffer @jhuze1988 and 1st AC/key grip @sabrina.spilotro worked 18 hour days and rigged together some incredibly difficult set ups all things considered and I think they both deserve a round of applause 👏🏻 . . . I’d love for you guys to watch it and let me know your thoughts, I’m happy to answer any questions too! I’ll be posting more behind the scenes images and in depth blog entries about the process. . . . #canadianfilm #indiefilmmaking #directorofphotography #cinematography #diyfilmmaking #anamorphic

My meteor shower came courtesy of a plane, how was yours? 😅// . . . Sadly I couldn’t escape the city to a dark sky area in Ontario to watch last night’s meteor shower so I tried to make the best of it in my own neighbourhood. . . . Usually light pollution is just too damn intense to see anything but using a few tricks I was able to pull out a decent amount of star detail. In fact after my eyes adjusted I did see a few real meteors, sadly they were far too dim to capture. . . . For this shot I used a technique called ETTR (expose to the right) where you purposely overexposed your image right before the breaking point of highlights so you retain as much light detail as possible. In photoshop you roll back this exposure using a combination of HDR tone mapping and camera raw adjustments with dehaze/clarity and you can get some seriously decent results, even in a super bright city like Toronto 🙌🏻 . . . #perseidmeteorshower #meteorshower #toronto #astrophotography #starrysky

The rock formations in Newfoundland are drunk // . . . I challenged myself to photograph a series of panoramic images during my time on the beautiful island of Newfoundland. . . . This is a place called Green Point, it’s on the North-West side of the island just above Gros Morne park. The rock formations you see here are 500 million years old and give us a super cool glimpse into the layering of time that is usually hidden much deeper underground. . . . #newfoundland #newfoundlandandlabrador #explorecanada #canada🇨🇦 #instapanorama

Peeping around Newfoundland for a week 📷 // . . . I never like to plan more than 40% of a trip in terms of accommodations & destinations, it closes the doors on so many possibilities. Which leads me to my next point, if you have any recommendations for me to check out while I’m here please leave em’ in the comments below 🙌🏻 . . . Pictured in this self portrait is my awesome little Viewmaster stereoscopic film camera which I’ve been slowly capturing every part of Canada I visit. I’ve got some interesting plans with all these hundreds of 3D photos 🎩 . . . #newfoundland #flatrock #eastcoast #explorenewfoundland #explorecanada

The 5 series twins 🔥// . . . Here are my final shots from my BMW Performance shoot, it was the third night of the shoot and my task was to shoot some group photos. . . . It was really interesting to have these contrasting colours but yet still have a monotone look. I wanted to inject some specific colours into the scene and that’s where good locations were super key. . . . Using my @photopills app to go back to awesome locations I had spotted on previous explorations was so helpful, and I really recommend archiving your locations for future use. . . . Go try photographing cars at night yourself as it’s super fun and such a good learning experience for what’s possible using minimal equipment ⚡️ . . . #bmw550i #bmwcanada #bmwm5 #instacar #bmwlife

Beauty and the Beast 🔥// These are the 330i and 440i shots I captured for my BMW M-Performance photo shoot. . . . These were shot on the first of 3 nights so I was still getting my bearings set on how to approach shooting cars at night. The first challenge I noticed is that new cars get dirty FAST and it’s the kind of dirt you don’t see in the moment but rather later in post. Just hundreds of specks of dust and debris from the industrial area I was using as my location. Taking a nice microfibre cloth to the car before each shot would have saved me many photoshop hours lol but the following nights I didn’t make that same mistake. I used the same technique as my 7 series shots, just a single light to paint the portions of the car and background in separate shots and then stitch them together in post. . . . I shot this series back in the beginning of April and of course it happened to be just absolutely frigid outside, can you spot the ice in the silver 440i shot? Everything is trickier when it’s cold and while I can dress appropriately I still haven’t figured out a gloves situation, warm gloves are too thick for the dexterity needed to control a camera so constant breaks to thaw my hands in the car was so necessary. If you guys have a solution please let me know 💩 . . . My favourite of this series is the heavily compressed frame of the blue car under the Gardiner Expressway. I shot it with a 1000mm lens to really close the gaps between columns and create this amazing optical illusion that looks like a 3D picture frame. It was a shot that I had been dreaming up every time I drove down that stretch of road and it was awesome to see it actualized in reality and out of my head. . . . #bmw330i #bmw440i #bmwcanada #carphotography #a7riii

Batman Approved: the BMW 750i 🔥// . . . This is the first of a series of photographs I’m going to be posting featuring BMW vehicles with the badass M performance package add-ons. . . . These photos were truly a labour of love, each shot took about 8 hours between shooting and editing. A single photo is actually a composite of at least 5 shots stitched together to create these looks. I used just a single handheld battery powered light and some nifty long exposure tricks on the Sony A7riii. . . . My favourite shot by far is the first moody forest fog shot, I actually made a homemade haze machine to create the mist. Timing wise I knew I wanted to see tree detail so I waited until about 5am to capture this as the sky was starting to lighten and detail returning to the background. I painted with light on the one side panel to give the car shape but I love how it teases the mean look of the 7 series. . . . Let me know your guys thoughts, ever shoot cars yourself? I’ll be posting the rest of the series over the next few days! . . . #bmwcanada #bmw #bmw7series #carphotography #a7riii

One of the favourite humans in my life; a constant beam of sunshine, a lovely creative partner in @mindfudgeseries & just a genuinely talented person 😬 . . . She asked me to snap her new headshots, and whilst I’m not traditionally that type of photog, I love a new challenge. This is a quick little alt shot I grabbed while shooting at @v1studio. . . . #justinenelson #mindfudge #torontoactors #lgbttoronto #headshots

🍓Moon // . . . After a disappointIng mission to photograph the Canada Day fireworks I was rewarded with this fantastic strawberry moon-rise. I had my ‘BIGMA’ Sigma 500mm lens with a 2x teleconvert, shooting at a massive 1500mm on my Sony A6500 crop sensor. . . . The red moons like this are so much less bright than when the moon is high in the sky so finding a proper exposure is tricky. The moon moves FAST, anything less than 1/4 shutter won’t be sharp and with my lens stuck at a minimum aperture of f/13 with the tele-convert it was a challenge. I was able to stack a few darker exposures and get the water reflections though, so it turned out nicely 🤓 . . . #strawberrymoon #bloodmoon #supermoon #toronto #moonlight

For the last 5 years I’ve been out of the city during Canada Day celebrations and have always been envious of the larger than life fireworks display that lights up the CN Tower. . . . Of course after I plan out a vantage point, gather a group of friends and patiently waiting for the show, I find out they’re not happening this year 😅 . . . So we watched fireworks silhouette some low lying buildings and a whole bunch of people slowly coming to the realization that us park-goers all collectively failed this evening lol. . . Dat strawberry moon tho 👌🏻 . . . #toronto #canadaday #toronto_insta #fireworks #blogto
