A Year in the Life: In Which Grant Comes to Toronto and Jaime Doesn’t Wear Pants

October 5, 2010

Grant Harder: This past week has pretty much been a repeat of the week before so this is probably going to be on the shorter side of things- there was some scanning, a bit of processing for a Masterfile high resolution submission, a self assigned portrait session, some cold calling/hustling and little bit of stressing.

September 26, 2010

Jaime Hogge: Recovery week. Sort of. Though this week wasn’t quite as jam packed with shooty goodness as the past couple, I still managed to keep quite busy getting caught up.

September 17, 2010

Grant Harder: Well, we’re half way through September and that scares the sh*t out of me. I feel like 2010 is choking me out. The squeeze is on. Is there ever enough time? With the absence of any paid work this week I put together a little portrait/lens and camera test session. This is about [...]

September 10, 2010

Jaime Hogge: You want free parking? Give me a call. I have been super, super busy once again this week doing location work nearly every single day, and I’ve managed to only spend $1.75 on parking. I feel like I can find free parking anywhere in city just about now. How does this help me [...]

A Year in the Life: Back at It

August 26, 2010

Jaime Hogge: I don’t have any exciting tales of hiking or fancy hotels, but I think my unintentional summer vacation is just about over, and I’m pretty happy about it.

Grant Harder: This week started off pretty sweet. On Monday I shot a portrait of David Suzuki for Vancouver Magazine. It was a great opportunity all around.

A Year in the Life: In Which Grant is Dis-Connected and Jaime Looks for Some Wax Paper

July 30, 2010

Grant Harder: Today consisted of swimming, visiting caves and eating ice cream. I’m still on vacation in Manitoba and loving life.

July 22, 2010

As per yesterday’s post from Jaime, Grant is reflecting on what the last almost-year of A Year in the Life has meant for him. A bowl of cherries apparently! Grant Harder: For me the last year has been a bit of a roller coaster ride of ups, downs, tight corners and a current pesky water [...]
