Marianne & Eric Get Hitched!

with 2 comments

My long time best buddy Eric just got himself married to an awesome girl this past Saturday in Hamilton Ontario, and I was lucky enough to be his best man. I’ve known Eric since pre-school, he lived around the corner and we somehow managed to walk to school together virtually every day. I wasn’t entirely aware of my best man status until about a day before the wedding, but I managed to remember the rings and avoid any catastrophes. In lieu of an embarrassing best man speech (saw-horse) I was able to take a few snapshots of their beautiful wedding.

Marianne & Eric’s¬†ceremony and reception took place in Luina Station, a stunning old train station that has since been converted for use as a banquet hall. It was a great experience seeing his whole family again, as well as meeting his new family, friends, and super fun bridesmaids in Hamilton.

I didn’t take too many photos because I was busy with other things… come to think of it, I’m actually not entirely sure how I made it to the airport for my 6:00am flight back to Vancouver, late night turkey dance off.

Here are a few photos from throughout the day:

Z & C’s Indian Wedding

without comments

This weekend I shot the first Indian wedding I’ve attended since traveling through Jaipur. It was a vibrant occasion, with brightly colored saris and traditional Indian ceremonies. When the dance music came on I was forced to put my camera down to give my dance moves a brief cameo appearance. Out of respect for the couples request for privacy I wont be posting any photos of the newlyweds or their guests online, but here are a few token photos from the day.

3 guys, 44 days, 11 countries, 18 flights, 38 thousand miles, an exploding volcano, 2 cameras and almost a terabyte of footage… = A simple concept, brilliantly executed.

A New Logo

without comments

As somebody who designs logos for other companies, I figured it was about time to finally design one of my own. The basic concept was to use my initials (C B) to form the basic shape of a camera.

Thoughts? Love it or hate it?

SOLITAIRE

without comments

So it’s the beginning of August. The sun is still high, and the snow has finally started to disappear from the local mountains. It’s not really the time to be thinking about the upcoming ski season, but when it’s summer up here, it’s ski season in South America. Mike B., whom I met in Kathmandu, has been down south working on an epic ski documentary with Sweetgrass. They just released their long awaited trailer for SOLITAIRE, a ski film that follows their 2 year adventure through the South American back-country.

 

They have also been posting a behind the scenes video series throughout their travels that help give an idea of how much effort (and adventure) really goes in to getting some of the shots they are after:
