April 29, 2010

I know this is old news but last summer Finn O’Hara bagged a super cool assignment with Canada Tourism which took him on a massive trip across Canada shooting both stills and video. Some work from that series: (Mmmm, Montreal bagels. And maybe I’m just hungry but notice how beautiful that steaming smoked meat looks): [...]

A Year in the Life: In Which Jaime is Go Go Go and Grant Plans his Trip

April 23, 2010

A Year in the Life: In Which Grant asks about NYPH and Jaime Gets a Cool Gig

April 15, 2010

Grant Harder: I’m kind of a closet Neil Diamond fan. There are only two of his albums in my collection; both are live and on vinyl. One of my favorite songs is the fab-foot-stomper, Thank the Lord for the Night Time. As of late, I can’t help substituting ‘night time’ with ‘sunshine’. Spring has arrived. [...]
