This whole Sunday Story Time isn’t working as well as I want it to. It’s like Sunday just needs to be just an hour longer. I bet you I can squeeze a post by then. I will have you know that my weekend has been incredibly adventurous. I’ve been saying yes to doing things I normally wouldn’t do. I got myself in trouble only to find out that I could also talk myself out of trouble too. Point is this. This year is supposed to be my year of new opportunities. I promised myself to be open to new experiences and meeting new people. Which brings me to my next point, I’ve been saying yes to meeting/collaborating with new artists only to end up staying at home watching another run of the LOTR on Netflix. Don’t get me wrong, LOTR is sick, but I probably need to go back to this New Years resolution. So I’ve created a public calendar. A calendar that will be live and should show you my availability on a daily basis. Idea is that you should have access to booking a time for me to meet up with you. Whether it’s to collab, workshop tutorial, or just grab a cup of coffee. What you reckon? I reckon it’ll be a mess, but it’s a mess that I’m willing to try out. Let me know what you think and if you have any suggestions. As always, @sam.abadi thinks I suck at story telling. I don’t disagree. I also think I suck at remembering to story tell.

Sunday Story Time... was a failure! Saturday’s @vancity takeover was a success. It was an absolute joy ride and pleasure to take you guys on an adventure around Vancouver. S/O to @sophiarupprecht + @ahenrystory For helping me out throughout the day and tagging along. So this is it, 3 months in the making, and it’s time to stop obsessing over it. Time to let you guys try it out. This is β€œREDBONE” based out of LOTUS but made for portraits. This is my latest preset that I’m giving away. Head over to @vancity page and check out my takeover post for more details. You can also check out the before and after in my story!

VANCOUVER! Join me tomorrow on a little adventure as I take over @vancity page. I might be taking you around my favourite spots in the city, maybe outside the city, I might have some Vancouver artists joining me too, and may squeeze in a lil giveaway at the end of it all. Ok, I’ve said too much. I go now!

I slept roughly for about 24hr straight which lead to three things I didn’t get to do yesterday: 1- I didn’t celebrate Canada Day (sorry; Happy Canada Day). 2- I didn’t upload my first ever IGTV tutorial. 3- I didn’t share with y’all a Sunday story time w/ @sam.abadi (I guess I really suck at story telling). On another note, I might squeeze in a Montreal/Toronto trip in August. Also, if anyone can help me find a sugar mama to help me fly @ashleyvee_ from Cali to Vancouver, that would be πŸ‘ŒπŸΎ.

My photography started with long walks around the neighbourhood. No one was there to entertain me. No one was there to judge me. Just my camera, my music and I. Time to think. Time to meditate. Time to create.

His side, Tell me a reason why your word is worth more. You tell me that I am not listening, but I am listening. I see you hurting, and it hurts me. I wanna take it back but it’s too late. I’m sorry. There’s two sides of a story, what’s yours? Her side, I know you’re sorry, but I’m hurt. I know I’m not fair to you, and I appreciate you putting up with my faults. Look at me! I can’t stand you not looking at me. I want to tell you that I forgive you.

I haven’t been shooting much nighttime. Instead, I’ve been working on some nighttime presets. So here it is, a new addition to a soon to be released 15 preset pack.

Sunday Story Time: It happened a few years ago. My timeline is blurry, for it feels like it was just yesterday. You left angry. I didn’t say goodbye. I wanted to say goodbye. I wanted to say I’m sorry. I still don’t know if you forgave me. Now, here you are, it’s 3AM again, you come knocking on my door. I invite you in, but you don’t come in this time. β€œWhat’s wrong?” I ask. β€œHold on,” you replied. Anyway, @sam.abadi thinks I suck at story telling. I don’t disagree. w/ the beautifully talented @sophiarupprecht + @magnus.magneto . β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” Shot on @sonyalpha A7Riii FE 50mm F1.8 ISO 320 F2.8 1/1000s @ 50mm White Balance: Auto β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” This photo was edited in @photoshop + @lightroom using my new UNNAMED preset.

SUNDAY STORY TIME, (quick disclaimer: I shouldn’t be on any social media platform rn let alone telling you a story) I went out shooting this morning at 7:30AM with the intent to shoot one major intersection for 12 hours straight. I’ve explained my plans for the day to so many strangers, you know when the Starbucks fellow asks you about your plans for the day, but I constantly got the blank facial expression followed by, β€œcool!” Anyway, that’s not the point. Here I was, waiting for something to happen under the harsh sunlight, and idk what happened. I literally starred straight at a garbage can that has a sign that one homeless fellow threw. I don’t know what I was doing, so I took a picture of it. Immediately afterwards, another homeless fellow comes and starts writing a new sign but notices me looking at this other sign, so he walks right over says, β€œexcuse me” grabs that sign that I was photographing and uses it instead. It was at this moment I knew I couldn’t last the full 12 hours, so I bounced just after 9 hours. Anyway, @sam.abadi thinks I suck at story telling. I don’t disagree. This goes to the table to our right (another story for another Sunday) β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” Shot on @sonyalpha A7Riii FE 50mm f1.8 ISO 50 F18 1/25s @ 50mm White Balance: Auto β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€” This photo was edited in @lightroom using my OPUS preset.

It was late, but that didn’t stop you; it never stopped us. You came knocking at 3AM to remind me that even in the darkest days, when you’re not around, I still feel you in ways that I have never felt before. If I were to do it all over, I wouldn’t change a thing.
