We are thrilled to share this gorgeous photo of one of our Global Wonders and SA supporters - the lovely Arisa Cox! We were so blessed by her and talented photographer Tavis Gordon sharing their time and talents in support of us! To take time out of their busy schedules to shoot a promo shot for us was just awesome! It goes to show we are ALL GLOBAL WONDERS. And if you think this necklace looks as amazing as we do and want to buy it you still can here!

This photo was shot in support of an important charity called SA Foundation. They help to rehabilitate young women who have been victimized by sexual exploitation in places like India. By providing them with long term recovery programs, treatments & counseling, they are able to help them move forward. Some women involved in the programs, create unique jewellery pieces (as shown on Arisa) and all proceeds help to advance the programs. While on vacation in Mexico, Sher, Arisa and I donated our time to shoot this promotional photo. We were glad to be a part of this project and happy to contribute our talents to a great cause. To find out more about SA Foundation and their jewellery line (Global Wonders) click the link below:

Anyone who was in Toronto last night knows we had a small storm. It came and left within a few hours but in that short timespan, it put on a show in the sky that had Toronto amazed.
The colours and cloud formations happening above were tweeted and instagramed by the thousands with everyone showing off their amazing pics.

My point of view wasn’t the best, but working with what I had, I shot a series of pics from behind my window screen.

Glitches

Computer-generated art… Literally, a glitch on one of my files that turned out to be kinda artsy.

High Park Cherry Blossom Trees/Sakura Trees

Yesterday was capped with a short visit to High Park.

The big draw at this time of the year are the cherry blossoms, which usually start to blossom in the beginning of May and stay full bloom for about a week. Lucky for my Fam and I, we passed through on the right day and took in the scenery at its best.

Above are a few pics I snapped using a polarizing filter.

Mina: Artist, Designer & Fashionista - 2006 throwback

"I’m tough, ambitious and I know exactly what I want. If that makes me a bitch, okay" - Madonna 

The term “bitch” is what society sometimes casts upon women who have a certain amount of success & drive…

When Mina crosses your path, you can’t miss her, she’s definitely extravagant in her own right…here’s an article Jeanne Beker put together when she bumped into her at a Toronto fashion event… Jeanne Beker (Fashion & Style)

Instagram - Chapter One
A close friend once told me “happy people have projects”. This phrase always stuck with me and is the reason I approach various media outlets (including my instagram) from a different angle. 
In a pessimistic world, having my own little on going project, although small, helps to provide satisfaction and allows me to do *me* - which is very important in an industry where “90% of your idea is good ” but “we’ll just change this, this and this” lol.
My approach was to work within a specific creative direction for 12 photos (one instagram block). Each photo needed to embody at least 3 of these 4 characteristics (repetitive, forms a pattern, abstract and black and white). Lastly, they all had to be shot and edited using only my iPhone. 
Instagram is definitely one of my favourite outlets, as it allows me to extend my love of photography outside of work. Maybe there’s something you’d like to undertake. It doesn’t have to be huge - just something you enjoy that won’t disrupt life’s daily responsibilities.

Paris Li Spring/Summer 2013 Ad Campaign

I had the pleasure of shooting a lookbook & ad campaign for a very talented, up & coming designer, Paris Li. 

My partner Sherlyn Torres & I collaborated once again and banged out these very clean commercial shots.  This is Sher’s 5th time working on Paris Li’s lookbook and campaign so it was only natural for me to get on board.
