Student Government Campaign Shoot: Michelle Chen

02-21-2017

I did a shoot for my dear friend who lived on the same floor with me in residence. She was running for multiple student leadership positions and needed photos for her campaign.

Here are the official poster media.

Here are some of my favourites that didn’t make the final cut.

You may want to know the results of the elections. Michelle won all of the positions she ran for after a week of long nights, hard work, dedication, genuine care, stress, deep chats, and ice cream bars. This included VP of the upper year tower (head of all programming and tower events) and Student Council Arts Representative. I wish her the best of luck in her roles this coming year! …but anyways I know she will be great!

Impromptu Banff Trip: October 01, 2016

This trip was taken on a rainy Saturday and included stops at Bow Falls, downtown Banff, and Lake Louise. Let’s just say, my upper respiratory tract infection was not the only thing that took my breath away today. Enjoy.

Engagement Shoot: Fall 2016

Sooooooooo, my dear friend from high school is getting married (I still can’t get over this)! This was by far my favourite shoot to date, not to mention how truly perfect these two are. Enough said, let’s get to the photos.

This is the result of carrying around my camera everywhere as I go to class and explore the city.

Mid-Summer Leaves – After a productive lecture session, I walked out to see the cheerful sunlight in quad. And yes, I am in fact doing school in the summer, haha. Here on campus, it has been at least 28°C everyday..or at least it feels like it. For this photograph, I stood under a shaded tree to capture the quiet mid-summer mood. I think the little holes in the leaves make it interestingly imperfect.

Van Vliet Complex – Even though you can’t see the actual building, I really like the effect of this shot. The Van Vliet Complex is the main recreation center on campus. It is the cone shaped building attached to the Butterdome. These two buildings are photographed together quite often (I’ll photograph that some other time to show you), but I wanted to see if I could capture it from a different perspective. It was successful! I even manged to capture some huge sunspots too!

Mackinnon Ravine – My fellow execs and I went down to the river valley for team bonding last week! I manage to capture this shot as we were walking back up the hill (very close to the water). We were planning on picking berries here too, but they were nowhere to be found! We had a great time nonetheless though.

Cafe Mosaics – This is my favourite vegan place to grab a nice meal after a draining midterm. [bokeh + street photography = new obsession]

Urban Street Art: #BarnE – I love that Cafe Mosaics features and supports upcoming artists.

Campus Collection no. 1

I got inspiration to pick up my camera lately. Specifically, I have been shooting architecture using a more wide-angle approach. Here are some hand-picked photos from around campus.
