Quinn Bachand – Victoria BC

Filed under Musicians, Portrait

I had a session with talented, multi-instrumentalist Quinn Bachand a few weeks back in downtown Victoria. I’m pretty certain you could hand him any instrument with strings and he would make it sound like he had played it for a lifetime!

Quinn Bachand – Sneak Peek

Filed under Musicians, Sneak Peek

I don’t want to brag about the weather we’ve been having while all my family and friends on the East Coast are experiencing the most relentless winter in years. However, (*East Coasters: skip to the next sentence*) it’s been wonderful! Last evening I had a session with Quinn Bachand to take some promo photos for his upcoming gigs, and got treated to tunes on three different guitars, the fiddle, and banjo. I’m pretty sure Quinn can play anything with strings! More images down the road.

Two Reedmakers, One Day – JWT Reedmakers

I took some portraits yesterday of the two Jamie Troys from JWT Reedmakers as part of my ongoing ‘Forever Bewildered’ series on ATRIA Collective. JP was already featured on week one of the series, and subjects/locations can’t be repeated (as a challenge to myself) so he wasn’t part of the post on ATRIA this week . However, since it was his dad’s birthday, it was a good chance to make an image of JW in the workshop.

Both images were photographed with the Fuji x100s, making this my first non-Canon blog post. Drop me a note if you’re interested in being a participant in the series!

Mac Morin – Part 2

I had a session with Mac Morin in December. He was in town playing piano for Natalie MacMaster, so we got together between rehearsals/sound checks for a few more photos following up from our session last April. Lots of laughs, as usual.Mac Morin Cape Breton Pianist (10)Mac Morin Cape Breton Pianist (9)Mac Morin Cape Breton Pianist (8)Mac Morin Cape Breton Pianist (7)Mac Morin Cape Breton Pianist (6)Mac Morin Cape Breton Pianist (5)Mac Morin Cape Breton Pianist (4)Mac Morin Cape Breton Pianist (2)Mac Morin Cape Breton Pianist (3)Mac Morin Cape Breton Pianist (1)

The Fretless – Promo

Filed under Musicians

It was two years to the day that I had my last session with The Fretless. When we met for our session that day, the group had just formed and was preparing to go into the studio to record their first album. At that time, I asked them to play something and they didn’t really know or have anything to play together since they had only come together the evening before…they didn’t even have a name picked out for their group. Fast forward to our session in November of 2013, and I was hearing an entirely different and multi award-winning group. Their new album will be released in Victoria BC in February, so stay tuned to their Facebook page for all of the details! I’ve already been lucky enough to hear the new album, and I can’t wait to get my hands on it to listen again…so good!!! It will definitely be a party not to miss!
