  3. Tim + Ali :: A Colorful Virginia Engagement

    Katie and I were fortunate to both do an engagement session with Tim & Ali in Richmond, VA. Two incredibly creative people, both designers. What made it extra special was Tim’s connection to some of the art work which he contributed on! A perfect back drop for two people who are so sweet together.

    Go have a look through Katie’s photograph’s …so much colour and energy captured!

  4. Apple USA and Nazar Melconian of Naz Films

    Exactly four weeks ago my phone lit-up with the caller ID display reading “Apple, San Jose”. At first glance, I questioned if it even was in fact Apple, and if so, really what could they want from me!? Fast forward, Apple USA asked me if I would contribute particular pieces of my video & photography work to be a part of their international press tour! I said “YES”, and along with other contributors they launched their campaign last week in LA & NYC. They will be making their way around the world – HOW COOL!

    I feel quite lucky to have been asked to contribute among surely far more interesting, successful creatives and business types.
