Lookie here boys and girls – another issue of Northern Groove in which you’ll find my photos & words in action (and also an article related to my impending European departure) … suspicious, I know, when you look at the magazine credits and see my name next to “Editor”.
Kudos to Peter Mozola for the smokin’ cover photo!
Holy macaroni can Ryan Sebastiano and his gang of Barracudas (Tony Frattura on bass and Mitch Guindon on drums) chew up chords and spit out songs! Below are photos from the full band’s debut show on March 24th, 2010 at On The Rocks (Fort St. John , BC) opening for Vancouver’s Daniel Wesley. Click here to see photos of Wesley himself.
Kudos to any band who can bring out 200+ folks on a Wednesday night in small town BC. The band who deserves kudos in this case is Vancouver’s Daniel Wesley. The photos below are from their show on March 24, 2010 at On The Rocks (Fort St. John, BC). Click here to see photos of the night’s killer opener, Ryan Sebastiano.
Well, well, well cute newborn baby … it seems you aren’t so cute upon closer inspection. In fact, I’d say it seems like you’re a big fat jerk who is giving me, an innocent photographer just trying to capture your week-old cuteness, the middle finger!!
Naughtlia is one of my favorite local bands to photograph … and not just because they have the habit of performing shirtless. Here are some photos from a recent show at Fynnigan’s Pub on March 13, 2010 (Ben Marsh on guitar and vocals, Cam Davidson on soundscapes and vocals, Derek Skauge on drums, and Jake Hebeisen on bass).
You can also check out some of my other photos of the band here:
One of The Mad Moustachios and I have founded a new holiday - Sangria Saturday. Unlike usual holidays, Sangria Saturday comes around once a week, which means if you missed the inaugural celebration you won’t have to wait an entire year to get into the Sangria Saturday spirit.
It’s an extravagant holiday, and one of its many traditions is the creation of an original and festive garnish for your pitcher of deliciousness. For example, we chose to garnish our pitcher with an entire pineapple top and decorate it with various animal figurines (see last photo).
Recently I was invited into the home (and bathtub!) of a very unique family for a portrait session.
Known across the world as “The Moustache Family”, this family is believed to have a direct bloodline to Hairus, the Egyptian God of Facial Hair (also 2nd cousin to Horus – one of the Egyptians’ head honchos, God-wise). I don’t doubt their ancestry – every single member of this family unit is mysteriously blessed with the gift of an absolutely marvelous moustache.
The Moustache Family currently resides in Rolla, BC – a little hamlet that is the home and refuge of many other so-called freaks of nature (such as The Reindeer Man).
