For those of you who were around pre-digital camera days, you’d remember those disposable Kodak cameras that Shoppers Drug Mart used to sell. Every weekend I’d get one of those, take some snaps of my ladies and me out in our best-dressed 90’s attire, ham it up for the flash, and make sure to order quadruples so everyone got a copy of our escapades. That flash was the best [...]

A couple of months ago the awesome ladies of Rock-It Promotions invited me along to Red Door for a little treat for my tootsies. With little hesitation, I convinced my client Hailey King of Polysh Magazine to come along with me.
