Oh, hello. I haven't updated this puppy in months, though not for a lack of activity. Mostly I've gone off on a sort of food-blogging and -photographing tangent. But here's a rundown of stuff I've been up to.
Because of Michelle-Meals, I found myself doing some writing and photography for the Food Network.
I went on a little vegan odyssey through Vancouver and finally checked out the Trout Lake Farmer's Market.
I was lucky to snap these shots of Bonnie Prince Billy at the Vogue, early spring, since he spent the beginning of his act with his back turned to the audience until all the photographers left the pit. As soon as we left he transformed into his regular old endearing self.
A Canada Day garden carnival on Victoria Drive featured a Role Mach performance, and several random (bake sale, BBQ, portrait drawing, face painting, listening, German translating, Piers Anthony reading) booths set up to raise money for the Safe Amplification Site Society. This is a portrait of Fine Mist's Jay Arner drawing my portrait for a loonie.
I documented the mating habits of the Granville Entertainment District clubbers for Discorder. Read the article by Jessica Barrett here. The whole set of photos is in a flickr set here.
I shot a couple shows of one of my new favourite local bands, Buffaloswans. I'll be following them into the studio this August to document the recording of their new album.
I shot some new promo photos for Jesse Reid on a recent trip to Ontario.
Aaaand I followed author Kevin Chong around at the track to shoot some material for an upcoming book about horse racing. Kevin and I will be blogging about the Dawson City Music Festival from the Yukon this weekend. You can find our updates here.
