Be Blown Away Portraits with some serious ShareDDB action!

Hey guys,


It’s good to have time again and sit down with glass of wine to write another post. It’s Sunday night (11:46pm) and I had an amazing day today. Woke up at 6.15am to go for a sunrise hike on top of the Mt Seymour’s ‘Dog Mountain Trail” and got absolutely soaked wet with the heaviest snow rain and one foot of snow with my dog Buddy. He was the most unhappy dog in the world right after he got the touch of the ice-watered snow beneath him, which soaked his little belly in zero degrees water for about an hour or so. He was safe and happy after having a good breakfast 😉 and this story will be covered in the next post.

The thing I want to share with you today is some seriously amazing and crazy portraits I did few days ago (NOV 19th, 2014). I had the opportunity to donate my time and talent for one of the best agencies in Canada I know, which is DDB and support local charities at the same time. They needed a photographer to cover the event  but I also wanted to bring little twist to the “silent auctions” as we know it with some good portraits. After seeing so much stuff online and social media I decide to bring on the big guns. MAKE SOME NOISE! I’ve rented leaf-blower which was able to generate 235MPH wind and get some faces flying! Literally!!!

These are the best of the best from the evening:
