WHAT GETS YOU MOVIN’: Noah

24 Nov



It’s life’s reality which normally inspires me… I need to get my film making skills up!

Check out this pretty incredible short film, Noah that premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, all set on the computer.  There are so many familiar noises and actions; you will find something relatable, that Chatroulette is still completely weird though.

WHAT GETS YOU MOVIN’: Jason Mickle Photography

Hey Guys!  Back in late Spring of 2012 I assisted fashion photographer, Jason Mickle, on a fashion story that recently appeared in West East Magazine. The story is loosely based around the crucifixion of Christ, and paintings depicting that story. For some reason it’s called Step Into Wonder (I’m not sure why) but the spread came out beautifully.  I always learn so much when I work with Jason!

Here are a couple of pictures from the shoot, to see all of them you can visit here.

WHAT GETS YOU MOVIN’: Jado Images

31 Dec


Wow 2012 is coming to an end!  I have to admit it wasn’t a particularly great year for me, so much change and not enough sleep.  There were a couple highlights though, one of them being, reaching my goal of getting a lot more photography work; this will transition into the launch of JADO Studios in 2013, but more of that come. 

I wanted to leave you all with an excerpt from a feature that the website template site Wix.com did on me.  They featured a couple of their users early this year, to discuss their work and how and why they use Wix. I’m not sure what ever happened with the featured user project, but here’s a sneak peek in what I had to say about JADO Images, marketing, and dating in January or February of 2012.

Happy New Year and look out for an updated JADO Images site in 2013!
