The Waldorf Hotel & The Beatty Street Mural - Comments (1)

Here’s a couple local Vancouver projects that inspire me. I’ve documented each of them as they’ve developed over the past several months and recently published these editorials.

The Waldorf Hotel

The Waldorf Hotel
“The Waldorf is a creative hub in the heart of East Vancouver where contemporary art, music, food and culture convene under one roof. The programming for the space will be both artistically expansive and thematically inclusive. The complex consists of thirty rooms, two restaurants (directed by Ernesto Gomez and executive chef Ned Bell), a Tiki bar (restored and retrofitted with a vintage analogue audiophile sound system), a hair salon (run by Barbarella Hair), a gift shop, a nightclub and a live music venue. In the works are a multi-media theater space and recording studio (tied to a residency program for visiting musicians).The Waldorf joins a new wave of Vancouver businesses that are conversing with the city, setting a benchmark for culture and hospitality.”

Photography Ethics on Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside - Comments (5)

East Van

I’m working on a cool photography project for Vancouver’s Lookout Shelters with Buschlen Mowatt Gallery and Joshua Dunford and have been thinking a lot about the ethics of photography on Vancouver’s downtown eastside.

The paragraph below is a first draft at some thoughts that I may include in the project. Looking for perspectives and feedback on photography in difficult situations such as the one in my neighborhood.

Once again that time of year has sprung upon us. If you haven’t noticed a strange influx of SXSW chatter on the internet, then you are one of the lucky ones. Geeks all around the world clamored for three strenuous weeks to pull together amazing and awe-inspiring proposals for potential panels during the 2011 SXSW Festival that takes place in Austin, TX every spring. This festival is a pure landscape of geek heaven with a 4 day Interactive portion of the festival geared specifically towards technology, geekery and all things ‘internet’.

Top 20 Vancouver Twitter Peeps Based on Klout Score - Comments (26)

BarCamp Vancouver - Wall-O-Love

Someone turned me onto a new tool called Klout that more or less manages your reach and influence on Twitter. They’ve got a fancy methodology for doing so… it’s very detailed. I only understand the basics and realize that these kinda things can be hard to measure and that a tool that ranked people based on their kindness or touchiness or hawt sexy awesomeness would be a lot more interesting… nonetheless I’ve tinkered with the Klout tool a bit and generated this list of Top 20 Vancouver Twitter Peeps Based on Their Klout Score.

Deadline Quickly Approaching Have Photographs Included in Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics Comments Off

Camp Gastown
The deadline is quickly approaching for the end of submissions to the Canada CODE website as part of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games. Canada CODE is part of the digital edition, CODE, of the 2010 Cultural Olympiad. CODE is made up of four parts: CODE Live, an 18 music and digital media festival, CODE Screens 2010, an interactive journey that brings the art to your home computer, CODE Motion Pictures, which is a film line-up of commissioned short films from Canadian filmmakers and Canada CODE, a user-generated photo, text and remix experience. The coolest thing is that all of the content that is uploaded to the Canada CODE website, including remixes, will be put into a pool of potential material that could appear on the giant projection screens during the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games.

The Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games are right around the corner and the town is buzzing. Every set of Olympic Games has a separate cultural line-up that showcases the country’s communities in the arts, theatre and music. This line-up is curated by the Cultural Olympiad by every host city and runs parallel to the official sporting events through out the host city. Vancouver is putting its name on the historical map by adding an additional component to its Cultural Olympiad 2010 called the Cultural Olympiad Digital Edition, or CODE for short.

TED Comes to Vancouver : Speaker Nominations for TEDxVan - Comments (10)

Pickup

TED is a great conference format that is focused on the theme of ‘ideas worth spreading’ in technology, entertainment and design. Showcasing the brightest and coolest minds our times, TED is an all around impressive event that videotapes all their speakers and puts the videos up for free on their TED talks list. They really stand behind their principles of sharing ideas, even if people are unable to attend the highly anticipated TED event.

Photography Update – SXSW, New York Fashion Week, Renewal Partners, Pechu Kucha & the Purple Thistle Collective - Comments (3)

I’ve been spending a lot of time this year working to turn my photography from a project into a business. I’ve been making photographs way more often, on larger and more well paying projects, while still staying involved in the internet and technology industry. For me (tech + art = happiness). :)

In an effort to catch everyone up on what we’ve been up to lately we’ve posted a series of recap blog posts over on our site. In the near term we’ll be updating our portfolio, pulling together an accurate client list, and exploring other creative ways of getting our work in front of the right people. We’ve been working really hard on getting this ship in shape for the future as well as shooting almost everyday.
