Back in the heart of summer, King Marketing & sports apparel company 2XU approached me to create images of their newest sponsored face, Colorado Avalanche player Matt Duchene. 

We travelled up to Halliburton to photograph the young talent in his private retreat and had an awesome time with him, his family, and the 2XU crew. 

These images will start making there way across the continent in different stores and magazines.

Thanks to Kareem Ibrahim for producing and 2XU President Nikki Beal.

Neil and Grace insta-stalking their tourmates, a future boyfriend, etc, on the first night of the CleanYears tour (October 2014)


For the past two years I have been travelling to Viet Nam quite frequently. The purpose has been to document the work that the foundation Kids in Class has been doing to improve the lives of minority families living in Sa Pa and Lao Cai. In this time, I have seen deplorable situations, ones that I could not imagine living in myself. These are the five families who have received brand new homes this year, due to the good heart of Kids in Class.
