Some bands come in for a gig, they sound good. They play the tunes. They finish the set and thats about it.  Nothing wrong with that.  I like some of those bands. I've met some and they're really nice people.  
Then there are bands that put on a total and complete rockin' show.  The Arkells are one of those bands. They came into Studio211, and just rammed through a First Play Live of their new album Rally Cry.  
The CBC Music crew rocked just as hard making this look and sound as amazing as possible.  I'll post the final performance once the team has it up on the YouTube.  
Here are my shots of the band as they sound checked with a massive amount of energy. Everything was shot with the Sony A7iii and the 24-105 f4 G lens.

WTF
This was a series I was involved with in 2010. This is the intro I shot and cut as we spent a couple of days roaming Pearson Airport looking like we were going somewhere and then going nowhere downtown. It was all kinds of fun.

This was a fun one, lighting and directing the shoot for CBC Music's 2019 Juno Session with Charlotte Cardin. She was amazing, doing a killer rendition of an original by... Nickleback?
