erb!ni and his AMAZING 10th sketch

I had the pleasure to meet very talented friend of mine Erik (a.k.a. erb!ni), who happens to be also a fashion designer. As an evolution of erb!ni and his talent, we decided to capture his 10th master piece for the first time on camera.

Enjoy art responsibly!

Be Blown Away Portraits with some serious ShareDDB action!

Hey guys,

 

It’s good to have time again and sit down with glass of wine to write another post. It’s Sunday night (11:46pm) and I had an amazing day today. Woke up at 6.15am to go for a sunrise hike on top of the Mt Seymour’s ‘Dog Mountain Trail” and got absolutely soaked wet with the heaviest snow rain and one foot of snow with my dog Buddy. He was the most unhappy dog in the world right after he got the touch of the ice-watered snow beneath him, which soaked his little belly in zero degrees water for about an hour or so. He was safe and happy after having a good breakfast 😉 and this story will be covered in the next post.

The thing I want to share with you today is some seriously amazing and crazy portraits I did few days ago (NOV 19th, 2014). I had the opportunity to donate my time and talent for one of the best agencies in Canada I know, which is DDB and support local charities at the same time. They needed a photographer to cover the event  but I also wanted to bring little twist to the “silent auctions” as we know it with some good portraits. After seeing so much stuff online and social media I decide to bring on the big guns. MAKE SOME NOISE! I’ve rented leaf-blower which was able to generate 235MPH wind and get some faces flying! Literally!!!

These are the best of the best from the evening:

Vancouver Charity Event Photographer- Beauty Buzz 411 Gives Back to “Fuck Cancer”

It was awesome to experience such an amazing night as BeautyBuzz411 2nd Annual Gala Event.
I had a pleasure to become friend with Crystal who is very inspiring person and happen to be my friend.
Her passion for her blog and "give back to community" is amazing and drives people forward.
I wanted to say thank you to everyone, share some of Crystal thoughts and my photos along side.
Crystal:

“After months of planning, the day has finally arrived for the Beauty Buzz 411 2nd Annual Charity Gala. There has been so much buzz and support, my heart is overflowing with love.

Two years ago when Beauty Buzz 411 launched, I knew that I wanted to celebrate my anniversary each year by giving back to charity. BB411 has blessed me with the opportunity to work with amazing companies and I have met incredible people along the way. I believe that one person can make a difference and no amount of giving is too small.

Last year on BB411 Anniversary I cut my hair and donated 11.5″ to Locks of Love, the proceeds raised went to the Make a Wish Foundation. With such a great turn out,  the hype for this years event has been building for months. We hope to beat our success from last year and give back by bringing awareness to an amazing organization for a cause that has affected so many people.

When scouting out what charity to support for this years gala, I kept coming across Fuck Cancer. There was just something that kept drawing me to the organization and it felt very dear to my heart. From the moment I got in contact with the team they have opened their hearts and supported me in so many ways. I love the community they have and their focus on education and early detection. As the weeks went on I soon realized that Fuck Cancer was not just a charity, it was a family. Fuck Cancer educates Gen Y on early detection, prevention and the communication of cancer.

With the help of an incredible team I wanted to create a photo shoot that would show my support and capture the raw beauty of this amazing charity. I wanted to take a stand and not only be a voice that supported the cause, but be part of the change I want to see in this world. I had the absolute pleasure to be shot by Photographer Martin Szabo, Stylist Crystal Carson, Make Up Artist Allison Giroday and Hair Stylist Simon James.

After doing our shoot I went through a health scare with the C word and lost a friend to Cancer. This event soon became closer to my heart. Stay tuned for the in-depth story. Continue reading »
