Scotiabank Nuit Blanche 2013

October 5th 2013

Downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada

"At its core, Nuit Blanche is a 12-hour event with a mandate to make contemporary art accessible to large audiences, while inspiring dialogue and engaging the public to examine its significance and impact on public space. Nuit Blanche is both a "high art" event and a free populous event that encourages celebration and community engagement. From sunset to sunrise city spaces and neighbourhoods are transformed into temporary exhibitions. Unusual or forbidden spaces become sites of contemporary art open for all-night discovery and rediscovery. Cultural institutions, from museums to galleries to artist run centres, open their doors and offer free access to contemporary art. The everyday is suspended as the city’s landscape is changed to welcome a variety of artistic experiences."

Rush

July 6th 2013

I was extremely lucky to be able to photograph Rush for Q107.  One of the biggest bands in the world had incredible energy.  It was a great show to photography.

Sound City

Deep in the San Fernando Valley, amidst rows of dilapidated warehouses, was rock n’ roll’s best kept secret: Sound City. America’s greatest unsung recording studio housed a one-of-a-kind console, and as its legend grew, seminal bands and artists such as Fleetwood Mac, Neil Young, Rick Springfield, Tom Petty, Metallica and Nirvana all came out to put magic to tape. Directed by Dave Grohl (Nirvana, Foo Fighters) and featuring interviews and performances from the iconic musicians who recorded some of rock’s greatest albums at the studio, Sound City doesn’t just tell the story of this real-life rock ’n’ roll shrine, it celebrates the human element of music as Grohl gathers some of rock’s biggest artists to collaborate on a new album. Using Sound City’s legendary analog console, together these artists continue to create musical miracles in a digital world.

—- Amazing documentary.  Loved seeing the artists passion and love for their work and unique sound.  Worth a watch.

Here is a video of a behind the scenes look at the Katy Perry Interview Magazine photo-shoot she did for the March 2012 issue. Check it out ! © Interview Magazine

Katy Perry stars in the latest issue of Interview Magazine, channeling Elizabeth Taylor. Photographed by Mikael Jansson. Styling by Karl Templer.

When I saw this series I lit up.  Surprisingly I am not not a huge fan of Katy Perry visually or musically - shocking eh?  I was just more impressed and in love with the high ISO and the black/white tone of it.  Look at all that grain!  I am a big fan of noise and grain while most aren’t.  Things don’t have to be so sharp and bright and crisp and this series goes to show you that! As well as it did it super well.  Love the mood and atmosphere.  All photos copyright © Interview Magazine and Mikael Jansson.

Back in February I got the chance to photograph a band called ‘Bleeding Rainbow’.  Really solid set from this group out of Philadelphia.
