Do you see her?
Iskander is pronounced 'Skunder' if you were wondering. Don't worry, everyone gets it wrong the first time.

Wonderful wonderful followers. I have entered a photography competition being held by artistswanted with the hopes of sharing my work with many more people. If you have a chance, please click the image above to check out the photos I submitted and if you like them, please vote. Re-blogging would also get you on my “Favourite People” list. Trust me, it’s an exclusive list.
Also, if you’re a fellow photographer you should enter too!
I’m trying to expand my personal website by telling real stories about real people.
Do you have a really weird or interesting job? Do you live in an unusual/extremely unique home? Do you get to spend time somewhere that most Torontonians don’t get to go/see? Could I follow you into a big life event? Do you fight for a little known cause?
These are just general questions to give you vague idea of what I’m looking for. If you want your story told, I’d love to meet you and shoot some video and photos of you and your situation.
Ideally it would be a mini documentary. Maybe a short 3-5 minute video about you and what makes you or your situation special, followed by a series of editorial photos that add to the story. I’m still trying to figure out the final product, to be honest.
Here’s a good example of the style of video I’d like to make: http://youtu.be/AyABg54SIts
All of this is independent and I promise this isn’t my sketchy way to take pictures of naked strangers.
I’d like to hear from anyone, from cab driver to race-car driver; as long as you’re doing something the world might find interesting.
Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with “tumblr” in the subject line if this interests you! If you think this is a good idea and don’t want to participate, then feel free to reblog this post.
Since this is as independent as it gets, I unfortunately can’t afford to pay any subjects. Sorry! Would if I could. But, in the small chance this idea does take off in a way that turns into money, I’ll do everything I can to properly reward you for your time.
Also, I don’t really I know what to expect… so I can’t guarantee everyone will get a response. Hope to hear from you soon!
PS: I originally posted this on reddit and they hated me for even asking.
Home for the holidays.
Everything. Is. Frozen.
Since people really seemed to like my recent upload of iPhone photos, here are a few more travel/flight themed ones. They’ve been added to a much larger collection that you can find here.
Once again, everything was taken on an iPhone 5 or a 4s, all edited in VSCO Cam.
I’ve never been very good at asking for help, but I’ve recently realized that I can’t expand my vision without more gear and I can’t share prints with the world without fronting more cash than I’ve got. That’s my justification for the QR code you see above. I promise I won’t spend it all on weed and Cool Ranch Doritos.
Joshua Telfer took me on a mission the other night. We went nearly 500 feet above Toronto to get a perspective of the downtown core that I had never seen before. There were no barriers up there, so if I tripped and fell… I felt like I was going to land in the middle of the court at a Raptors game. The view up there was breathtaking, which made it very easy to forget about how much Rob Ford pisses me off.
