Photoshoot with Colin Walton

Today’s photoshoot took Colin and I deep into the depths of Pacific Spirit Park which borders UBC campus on the west end of Vancouver, BC. The park stays forever green throughout the year and offers a never-ending maze of trails that intertwine each other. We quickly got lost which, to be honest, was the plan since it never strays very far from campus and will always pop you out somewhere familiar.

Colin Walton, an always trendy friend from first year, was nice enough to model for me on this classic rainy February day. He was sporting a neutral pair of black pants with a matching black shirt hanging low for a loose fit. On top of this base layer was a large patterned brown jacket purchased from a Vancouver thrift shop. The outfit theme fit well with the more natural shoot we had planned. A perfect combination for Pacific Northwest winters.

Photoshoot with Edwin Zou

Another grey winter day in the Pacific Northwest provided the perfect atmosphere for my latest shoot with streetwear model, Edwin Zou. A short cruise over Burrard Bridge in Vancouver led to some amazing shots highlighting a simple yet effective black & white toned fit picked by Edwin. Vancouver, BC is known for it’s fashion/streetwear scene and this is a perfect example of the dope styles that can be seen throughout the city proving you don’t need sunny beach days to look fresh and fitted.

UBC Skate Comp & BBQ

UBC Skate Comp & BBQ

UBC Skate Club had a huge turnout at UBC skatepark for this years annual fall Jam & BBQ. A fat crew of skateboarders put on a straight clinic for the crowd that had gathered to watch the madness. There was a tasty grill manned by The Calendar and they were keeping everyone happy with cheap dogs. The comp included three sessions; the street section, stair set (up and down), and finally the bowl. Every session hosted a mayhem of different tricks as skaters stomped methods out of the bowl and tuck-knees down the stair set. Continue reading “UBC Skate Comp & BBQ”
