Vivian

On a recent trip back home to see my family, I felt inspired to shoot some video with my mom. We were casually talking about creativity and what we find inspiring as artists and I said “today is inspiring, right now is inspiring”. We decided to go out for a walk, to look and listen to our immediate surroundings. My mom wanted to contemplate her surroundings in this moment, and I wanted to play with my steadicam. So this little snippet came to life.

Sunday Sunrise

I got up early on Sunday (around 5:30am) to get my butt out the door and take some sunrise photos. I was a bit resistant when I initially got up, but a bit of coffee and the brisk morning air got me going. The sky was a bit cloudy but it felt so good to run around the quiet streets and the empty sidewalks getting some great shots. I’ve attached a few pictures from my morning 🙂

Kinship

New ways of connecting that I never knew were possible, through family, movement and language. This piece represents a part of a bigger project that uses abstract images and manipulated sounds to convey how language is connected and moves through us.

Tracking Through Downtown

I spent some time with a good friend walking through the downtown area of Winnipeg. I used the Dji Pro rsc2 stabilizer and captured some incredible tracking shots in my Canon RP. We eventually made it to the waterfront and were able capture some gorgeous riverside footage. The whole thing looks so smooth and cinematic, it’s exciting to cut and edit it all together! I will post a video clip of it soon but in the meantime here are a few screenshots from the footage.

My Winnipeg

Winnipeg is a place I call home, and always a source of creative inspiration. From the train yards to the city skyline, I am always downtown and walking my familiar routes. I snapped these photos and layered them together, taking what is familiar to me and creating something that is unfamiliar…metal blends into metal and the skyline melts into itself.
