Netflix / 13 reasons why

I got the chance to direct a campaign video for Netflix’s new show “13 reasons why”, more specifically their social media campaign #ReasonsWhyYouMatter and the video is finally out today on Netflix’s facebook and twitter! 

It’s a really lovely project about friendship and love and I’m honestly so grateful I got to direct it <3 

You can view the video on netflix canada’s facebook page, & if that’s blocked in your country you can view it on twitter instead!

Radiant Baby / Save me from myself

I’ve been doing a lot of directing lately and really loving it! Earlier this winter I got to collaborate with Radiant Baby on his album imagery as well as the music video for his new song “Save me from myself” and the video is out today :)

You can check it out on urbania and youtube

This project felt kind of like a throwback to a lot of the imagery I was using around 2013, 2014, lots of pepto-bismol, candy, etc. Always fun to revisit ~ 

and here are some images we shot for his album :)

Chroma magazine / RED issue

My editorial for Chroma Magazine is out! I shot this for their first issue, which centers around the colour red - it was a bit of a challenge for me as I actually haven’t worked with red in my images in a really long time but I had so much fun with it.

Along with the photos I did a really long/more in depth than usual interview, you can read it over here

CBC arts interview

Along with releasing part 2 of the non-binary portrait series this week, CBC arts also released a video interview with me talking about the project :)

I also just want to say that I am really grateful for the attention this project has received BUT I do NOT think representation/visibility is the end all/be all!!! There are so many more important things to focus on that affect trans lives on the daily, and not everyone can afford to be made visible so just wanted to put that out there / second sidetone I want to thank everyone who has participated so far for your energy and vulnerability This project was first and foremost a very personal thing for me, it’s about collaboration and shifting my photographic practice to what matters to me and listening to the people I’m photographing.
