BARBATUS

Shot over eight weeks from January to March 2020, Barbatus is a short exploration of contemporary and bearded archetypes, and the people who wear beards in real life.

 

I assigned archetypal roles based personality. In most instances, the subjects admitted they were stepping outside of their comfort zone, or that they had always wanted to do a photoshoot but hadn't had the opportunity to do so. This project not only affected the subjects, but also improved the quality of my work, my understanding of light, and my connection to subjects while shooting.

VIDEO
Time, Light, & Silver

Time, Light, & Silver is a mini documentary produced by Keane Straub and Luca Staffa and is a final project as part of the journalism diploma at SAIT. Wet-plate collodion photographer and alchemist Riley J.B. talks about the appeal of his craft, and gives viewers an inside look at the organic process of creating images using time, light, and silver.

Their Stories Matter

SOCIAL MEDIA

As the multimedia editor of Culinaire Magazine, much of my work is based on social media posts for Culinaire's Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. I used a combination of Canva, images captured by both our staff photographer and myself, short video clips, and Adobe InDesign and Illustrator, to create posts.  I also write the copy / captions, and have experience using scheduling platforms like Hootsuite, Later, and Zoho.
