My cousin said it best, “Our parents had the Blue Jays. We have the Raptors.” The timing of this monumental moment for the country could not be better. I gave up all arrangements on that day to stand side by side with fans alike to experience a moment unlike anything else.
It took thousands of years for humanity to finally develop the artificial lighting we see in urban landscapes so that we may not for a single moment be lost in complete darkness. Well, it takes about two hours for the team at Nitelinx to transform acres of land usable for golfers to play at night, opening an amazing opportunity that many have yet to explore - but all should one day!
Millennium Funk'n Battle (2018)
I had the opportunity to shoot some martians doing some extra-terrestrial activities at the Millennium Funk’n Battle. There’s no doubt that they came down here to show us what real funk is about.
Thank you to Marty and Anna Bernard for the opportunity to shoot at the event.
CFFF National Championship (2018)
Determination. Perseverance. Courage. Strength. These words only describe a fraction of the greatness that the women and men who competed in the Canadian Functional Fitness Federation National Championship. A will and heart so forward that a moments watch can provide a lifetime of admiration.
Congratulations to Team Canada for their win at the KOD North America Tournament earning them an advancement to the world cup showdown in China. A tense and unforgettable night as it came down to a sudden death duel with the equally matched Team USA.

Shout-out to the dancers who had only a day to learn a routine or two and to the dancers who were out to straight butcher their opponents in the battlefield. Shout-out to the crowd for going bonkers with their yelling, hollering, and neglect for their neighbour’s ears. Such an eventful night when you can watch kings and queens do their thing at The Ridge Toronto.
Prelims are about selecting the strongest challengers for the main event. On this night, I’m certain the judges had a difficult time in deciding who will move forward because everyone gave it their all. The intensity was so strong I felt the energy travel through the lens down to my body, bumping my head as I went into shutterbug mode.
