My job often requires me to edit raw footages from other shooters, in this case someone’s YouTube footage, and find a story and make it look nice.
This video request came to me fairly late in the day and had to go on the website as soon as we could. I edited the piece fairly quickly with footages from YouTube and while trying to contact the owner for permission to use the footage. The shooter was affected by the tornado and we were unable to reach him. We thought of giving up and use other footages despite all the hard work and time put into this. Just when we were going to do another complete different video on the tornado story, the shooter called.

I shot a piece for Canadian Business and we took a look at the process on how Sweets of the Earth, a company which ranked in the PROFIT 500 list, create a cupcake in their factory.
The piece ran on their iPad edition.

I photographed Kathleen Wynne a few days after she won the provincial elections when she spoke to Maclean’s Magazine.
You underestimate Kathleen Wynne at your peril. Since taking over as Ontario premier from Dalton McGuinty 16 months ago, she has rejuvenated a scandal-ridden Liberal government by making big promises and tacking hard to the left. On June 12, voters rewarded her activist vision with a majority that few pundits or pollsters saw coming. She spoke with Maclean’s about what lies ahead for the country’s biggest province.
"I never took anything for granted," Wynne said.

Marilyn Black, 46, a Canada Post letter carrier, walks her route Wednesday, March 5, 2014 in Belleville, Ont. She has been delivering mails for 26 years which started off as a summer job. She walks around 15 kilometres each day. With the recent reform proposed by the Canada Post to stop door-to-door mail delivery and replace by community mailboxes, around half of the 31 letter carriers in Belleville would be out of a job. Black said she isn’t sure what’s going to happen to her job. She said mail volume has not been decreasing through the time she has been working for Canada Post so she isn’t sure the reasoning behind the proposed reform.
