Screen caps from a cool (and fairly spooky) new short film written and acted by Rose Paré @rosita_141 It was a thrill to be asked to shoot it. 😊 Link in bio!
In Paris last fall. Location can be magic, and Raphael summoned some up by convincing a client of his (who had just then happened to walk into his shop) to let us into her beautiful old apartment building for the last third of our shoot.

This awesome (even intimidating) instrument is the grand gallery organ in l'eglise Saint-Roch, Paris. It was built in the late 18th-century by the Clicqout family of organ makers, who also installed one of the first organs in the cathedral of Notre Dame.
An incredibly fun shoot with Paeyton today. 😊 More to come. @paeytonlilly of Peggi Lepage Models @peggilepage_models, Ciotti Models @ciottimodels, and Nevs Models @nevsmodels

A terrific rallycross event today organized by @kitchenerwaterloorallyclub I came first in my class (4WD turbo) racing my Audi A3, and 7th in the overall field. Great competitors and motivating camaraderie in the face of cold, wind, and mud.

After a week of highly variable weather, the track forecast for this weekend's rallycross is "frozen gravel or mud" - which should present some interesting tests for my Audi's stock suspension. 😋 Can't wait to race this. @kitchenerwaterloorallyclub Photo from last season's final RX, by Jeff Lantz
Meg in NYC. When I review photos from a session I'm finding more and more that what I'm looking for is not technical perfection in lighting nor a pin-sharp focus point, but simply a moment of pure, revealed individuality. @meg.nells
An outtake from a fun beach video I shot with the wonderful Helena Mikos a couple of years ago. Thinking about doing some photoshoots like this in 2019 when it warms up. DM me if you might be interested. 😊
Reverence and contemplation. Last September in Paris, I sat for a while near the shrine of Saint Rita of Cascia in l’église de la Madeleine – though I didn’t know this at the time, too photographer-focused as I was on the beautiful candle light, the icon, and the people contemplating it. I researched Saint Rita today: she’s considered the patron saint of impossible and lost causes, as well as of abused and heartbroken women. She lived in 14th- and 15th-century Umbria; married at 12 to an abusive and violent husband, she apparently turned him partially away from violence – though he ended up stabbed to death by members of a family he was feuding with – and then prayed to God to keep her sons from the same violent, vengeful path (a request He granted, it is said, by killing them both with dysentery to save them from Hell). She ended up an Augustinian nun, and was canonized five centuries later, in 1900.
