I have a NEW documentary in the works!!

This is pretty exciting news! I am officially working on my first TV hour documentary for CBC which will be shot entirely in Newfoundland. This documentary will be about the mobile workforce, people who have employment-related travel and it will be supported by CBC and On the Move Partnership.

I am currently in the pre-production process of working out contracts and looking for main subjects to be in the film so if you know any of the following 3 people that might be interested in being in it feel free to reach out to me (info@tinbirdproductions.com) and say hi!

  • Single mother using public transit to get to and from her job
  • A fly-in/fly-out worker with a family in Newfoundland
  • A single/divorced male truck driver

The shoot itself will be very low key and it may just be me with my camera and a few lights fyi!

Maddie Mills Photo did a fantastic job on these. My RBF is nowhere to be seen! Usually when I work I look cranky but it’s really just my face haha.

The episode on Irma Gerd will be online Feb.13th right after a premiere in Toronto! I spent so much time editing this and I LOVE the final cut so I can’t wait for everyone to see it. I will be posting the link so check back here or watch my social media!

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.
