I’m not really a nature person by nature (ha), I like staying in more than being outdoors. But once in awhile I force myself to go out. Now that winter is officially here (snow storm and -15 degree—check!), I find myself missing the awesome fall weather and colours. After watching the amazing Orange is the
Since working with Claudia on the INDePth Conference last year, I have had the pleasure of getting to know her “sarcastic, short and sock-less” self (Her words, not mine! I insist that she’s tiny, not short… but the sake of alliteration, I guess.) Recently, she started to blog about her experience and struggle with eczema,
In the summer of 2012, I spent two months in Hong Kong and one of the best things was the chance to create something with friends. Other than getting headshots done by Andrea, I helped her with a shoot featuring our friend Justina. I’m more interested in documentary, which works out amazingly because I love
I’m trying to do regular blog updates and consider what a gigantic backlog of photos and stories I have, I’m having this weekly feature called #WayBackWhensday… on Wednesdays in which I’ll post photos and things that happened sometime ago. So enjoy, and expect to see things from bajillion years ago because I’m a terribly lazy
Despite what most people think, I actually don’t go to school for photography. I’m currently in my last year at University of Toronto majoring in Books & Media Studies (with minors in Cinema Studies & Political Science, if you are wondering) So what’s Books & Media Studies? Book history, communication theory, Marshall McLuhan, that kinda
I took a quick trip to New York City last Friday with my friends Arthur and Allan. Get this — we were only there for the day. I have been planning this trip in my head since the brilliant and talented Alice X. Zhang announced her solo show in January… probably? I love her art
A few weeks ago, my high school friend Allan hit me up about this cross-disciplinary arts magazine he is starting, the magazine would feature emerging Canadian artists. Long story short, I jumped on board to be the photographer! Personally, I have been looking to be involved in projects where I only have to focus on
I love Toronto. I have been living here for almost 7 years now, but I think the love affair started when I was in high school and started going to shows. Going to a venue for the first time requires preparation, trekking there via the unfamiliar subway, and hoping that I don’t get lost and
Because of school and other obligations, I haven’t been able to shoot concerts for sometime now. So obviously I had to hit one up as soon as my exams are over! There was this one night when Anberlin’s A Day Late was randomly stuck in my head — I’m not a big Anberlin fan —
Truth be told, I’m a huge procrastinator — definitely not a good trait and I’m still working on it every day. Sometimes when it comes to creative work you really need to set a deadline for yourself and stick to it, or it will just end up in the back of the hard drive somewhere
“Walk with me” is a phrase I imagine using, you know, as if I have something important to say to another person that couldn’t wait so we have to do the “walk and talk” thing like they do on Suits. Anyway, the urgency this title inspires has nothing to do with the post except I
I have been a pretty big fan of NBC’s reality singing competition The Voice since the first season, but because of school work and other things I haven’t been able to keep up with the show as much as I’d like. The best part about watching the show is seeing artists that I had seen
Last Tuesday, the Toronto Reel Asian International Film Festival (where I’m interning) threw a TIFF (that’s Toronto International Film Festival) Reception for filmmakers and industry people at Dazzling. Annnnd I took some photos for the event. Here are some of my favourite ones, you can see more here.
Every year, I take a photo as I’m leaving Warped Tour, and then I wait for next year.
It’s my fourth year shooting Warped Tour and also my fourth time shooting All Time Low (also realized I hadn’t seen them for two years until now). It’s always a fun challenge to shoot All Time Low because they are so energetic. But their photo pit is almost always crowded, and we are at Warped
