Very pleased with the outcome of this ad campaign for long time client, Diamond Design, in St John’s, Newfoundland. If you don;t know, they have the best watch boutique in Newfoundland and with this campaign wanted to incorporate the local vibe. First shoot was with Fog Town Barbour Shop in downtown St John’s. Loved the opportunity to produce a classic retro style again. It suited this shoot so well.

Something in the Atmosphere

Back in August outdoor retailer, Atmosphere, came out to Newfoundland to shoot their fall ad campaign on the iconic East Coast Trail  …and it was a blast! Our crew of eight hiked, scouted explored and shot in locations from Flatrock to LaManche over 5 days. Even Cape Spear  …as far east as you can go in North America! For a photography and ad people its very rewarding to be doing full on advertising production on location in beautiful place.

NAPE PTSD public awareness campaign

Many people are subject to traumatic experiences in their job. Some repeatedly, some just once. But all can result in PTSD. And its not always the obvious people like soldiers and first responders. It can be shop keepers, teachers, taxi drivers, clergy, journalists …anyone. Any worker who has been robbed, assaulted, harassed on the job or witnesses a traumatic event can be afflicted with PTSD. I’m proud to have been a part of this public service campaign by the Newfoundland Association of Public Employees to bring workplace mental health legislation to the province for all workers.
