Children Book Cover
Created in Photoshop, this piece had to be either a fable or fairy tale that was already in existence. I have an affinity for the story of Beauty and the Beast, so I decided on this story. I portrayed the Beast slightly differently than the original and Disney versions because all that was said in the original was that he was a beast. There was no description. So I let my imagination guide me, along with reference of course!
Food for Thought
Food photography is an art that isn’t always easy. To pull of this piece, I applied tricks of the trade to ensure that the product had the best lighting as well as believability that is is what was advertized. Would you drink this? I know I would!
This newsletter was laid out in InDesign with photographs edited in Photoshop and a generic background designed in Illustrator. All content is planned and arranged to suit the style of the publication.
Newspaper Page Layout
A newspaper laid out in InDesign which highlights an event in which I was the photographer. The object of the project was to capture stills of movement and motion. I then applied it to the newspaper layout.
This photograph is a creative piece that describes who I am. The objects included in the photograph form a collage of various objects that I had gathered together onto a black backdrop to showcase my personality. I printed photographs of me playing my guitar and taking a photograph to integrate myself into the piece.
The Kiwanis Festival comes once a year in North Bay. This year, they were looking for six different covers for their categories: Piano, Voice, Strings, Guitar, Instruments/Bands and Dance. The category I chose to depict was song. This image was designed entirely in Photoshop. I scanned my roughs, re-tracing them once inserted into Photoshop. If you can believe it, those lips are created from my own lips! Whoa!
