I’m going to be shooting an episode of Canada’s a Drag for CBC!!!

Screen Shot 2018-11-25 at 1.07.20 PM

I’ll be doing a 5 minute documentary on local St. John’s drag queen, Irma Gerd!! We will be shooting her performance on Dec. 14th at Treble Lounge around 8pm so if you want to come join the audience you are more than welcome! It’s going to be super fun! 🙂

This is the first time Canada’s a Drag has come to Newfoundland and it will be nationwide!!!! Also, the season starts airing in January 2019 so stay tuned as I will post info about the time/date this episode will be on air!

All things Fogtown and Poppy!!

These shoots are so much fun!! As a photographer, I love natural shots more than anything. Yes, this means I like candids but it also means that I don’t think things have to be “produced” and perfect all the time because that’s not real life. Brastraps, tape residue on buildings, hair blowing in the crazy Newfoundland wind it all works for these shoots because it’s more about the lifestyle and people in their own environment.

 

If you like what you see, pop in to Fogtown and pick up your Poppy or Fogtown clothing item today!

A teacher’s perspective on the Nickel First Takes School Tour!

 

Here is Cloud River Academy’s Katherine Valentine-Johnson talking about her students experience in working with the Nickel’s First Takes School Tour! This is where we went around Newfoundland and mentored students in making a documentary on the topic of their choice! These documentaries will be screened at the Nickel festival in June!

I did an interview on Out of the Fog!!

Out of the Fog is a local tv show produced by Rogers TV and I was asked to be a guest on it last Tuesday!

I chatted with Jason Piercey about my documentary Flight of the Fisherman which has won 2 awards so far! Fun fact: when I moved home from Prague after graduating from film school I volunteered at Rogers doing their switch board and graphics!
