Cover of Faces Magazine

Back in October I did some promotional work for Stutz Apple Cider. One of the images landed on the cover of Faces Magazine, a local entertainment magazine here in Halifax. The shot below is the original. There a few more shots that landed inside as well. It's nice to see the mud fight get some love.

Evening Photo

Tonight I went for a stroll to take in the beautiful weather here in Dartmouth. Thought I would share this photo. I held the leaf up to the sun to get the burst of light.

Old Friends, New Photos

After days of rain, I finally met up with the MacGillivray family for photos. Charlene and I were classmates in Newfoundland back in the third grade. I never in a million years thought we would meet up again to do photos! I also can't believe we knew each other when we were the same age as her children! I had a great time following them around Shubie and learning where the Smurfs live!

Hickman Family Photos

Okay, so they're my own family! This is such a great time of year for family photos and I'm glad we were able to do this together. Kids just grow up too fast and before you know it, these moments are long gone. This is what photography is all about, I love it!

Westfalias, Trains, and Vespas

Yesterday was so much fun! We had the honor of photographing Korry and Barretts wedding at the Westin Nova Scotian. I'm sure the wedding party felt like they were all over Halifax so I have to give them props for being great sports. We took photos on anything that moved and my heart almost stopped when the train conductor started the train and a big billow of smoke nearly covered the wedding party! Eeek. Trains.....Yeah!

Discovering The Beach

My wife and I did a photo shoot with this little guy and his mother while in PEI. He didn't like the beach much when we first got there but warmed up to it as the shoot went along. He's such a great kid! We loved our time with him and we were sad to say good-bye.

Corinne and Kyle

This weekend my wife and I headed to PEI to shoot Corinne and Kyle's wedding reception. We had no idea just how much fun we would have. They were such a nice couple and looked amazing! These are some of my favorite photos from the day. I have to admit they were super easy to work with and put up with me constantly asking for "just one more" photo.

Exploring Nova Scotia's Bay of Fundy

Last weekend was amazing! My wife and I went camping at Five Islands Provincial Park and in Advocate Harbour, which is located in Cumberland County, Nova Scotia. We went kayaking with Nova Shores Adventures. Our guides Neridah and Sean were amazing. I highly recommend visiting Advocate if you're looking for a great getaway spot. There's a lot hiking in the area including visiting Cape d'or and Cape Chignecto. Also, eat at the Wild Caraway, you won't regret it!

This last photo is a photo of me taken by Lindsay. Thanks Linds!

Glorious Shoes!

A few weeks ago my wife and I did a shoot with our good friend Carolyn. This shoot was so much fun. Carolyn is an esthetician and these images suit her personality perfectly! These are only a few from that day but we have more "shoe shots" planned in the future. I can't wait. I think we're on to something...

World Wide Photo Walk

Yesterday was Scott Kelby's 3rd annual World Wide Photo Walk. With over 1100 photo walks happening all over the world I joined in here in Halifax. Thanks to Terry Crowell for leading the walk. We started our walk on Lr. Water St. at the Farmer's Market and eventually made our way up Spring Garden Rd ending our walk at Tim Horton's. It was an amazing morning and I ran into a few friends I haven't seen in a while.

Cape Split

Yesterday I went to Cape Split for the first time. I've been doing a lot of hiking over the past month and a friend of mine told me I had to go. Cape Split is a little over an hour away from Halifax near Wolfville. The clouds were looking dark and I knew it was calling for rain but it was supposed to clear up. As soon as I stepped out of my car I heard thunder and it started raining. It's almost two hours of hiking just to get to the end of the trail. I took a chance and I was rewarded with these great shots!

Hartlen Point Golf Course

I have such a love-hate relationship with early mornings. I hate getting up early and everything associated with it. That is, until I get outside and realize I should do this every day! There's no one around, it's quiet, and seeing the sunrise is pretty amazing.

Yellow Rocks!

On my visit to Martinique Beach I was amazed at the colours in the rocks. I loved it and got sucked in. I'm sure there are more photos out there. Hmmm...
