Follow the Path to the Sun
Last week my brother called me up and asked if he could get some new portraits done. I had the perfect location planned but rain ruined my big plan which included some beautiful light. We quickly drove back to my place which gave me the opportunity to finally test out some off camera flash work with my Sony A7. A quick setup in my living room, some wine, hip hop music and an excited dog running around we nailed this in the first few minutes. Hope you like it, Spence!
Oh yeah, my brother also hid a secret from the whole family for years… he can sing! Check out his youtube channel and give him a like:
Last night I was invited to Microsoft’s #SurfaceCafe to get a first look at the all-new Surface Pro 3. If you haven’t stopped by their pop-up café, make sure you do before they pack up and move out this Sunday evening. It’s a great way to get a hands on look of the new tablet from Microsoft that finally gives you everything you expect or need from a laptop.
Caitlin Cronenberg was the speaker last evening, showcasing some of her wonderful work and speaking highly of the tablet. As an apple user for over 7 years now, I can honestly say that this is the first time I’m considering a jump back to Microsoft.
Happy National Eat an Oreo Day! I made Oreo burgers to celebrate. What’s your favourite way to eat an Oreo?

A weekend with the #CamaroDrive
A few months back, I was awarded a #kloutperk to experience the new 2014 Camaro Convertible for a weekend thanks to Chevrolet Canada and MacLaren McCann. It took me less than a second to know that I absolutely wanted this experience and I quickly signed up.
On the Friday morning, the car was dropped off at my office and I was given a quick run through of its new features. My favourite feature was MyLink Radio which connect your smartphone to your vehicle via bluetooth. Not only was I able to access my songs and phonebook with my voice, but I could also have the Camaro read back text messages as they came in. Impressive, my little bumblebee.
Having lived in Toronto for the last few years, I’ve relied on services like ZipCar for when I needed a vehicle and the last car I owned was a 2004 model. The weekend gave me the chance to see how much has changed with cars and the technology available to you as you drive. Maps, turn by turn navigation, XM Radio, accessing your calls or text messages without taking your eyes off the road? This is a car that fits my lilfestyle of staying connected to my audience. Oh, and it’s fast too. :)
Taken back last fall while Scott Jarvie and I walked through Central Park. He’s a fantastic photographer so you should definitely check out his work!
