TVOKids Reading Rangers eBook: Rangerpalooza!

Rangerpalooza is now out! The cast and crew of TVOKids "Reading Rangers" were amazing and a lot of fun to photograph. And how can you go wrong with such a great set and fantastic costumes?

So, if you find yourself in need of a little help with rhyming, you can download the newest Reading Rangers eBook for iPad (also available for Android and Blackberry devices) and Ranger Kara & Ranger Drew will be more than happy to lend a hand.

And if you happen to need a little extra math practice counting out change when you're out shopping, you're in luck - we also got to photograph Tumbleweed and friends for TVO's Tumbleweed's Yard Sale eBook last year [update: nominated for a 2013 Digi Award in the category "Best in Cross-Platform Kids"]-[double update: currently nominated for a Gemini at the Screen Awards. Digital Media Nominee in the category: Best Cross-Platform Project]. The chinchilla was crazy cute, but a bundle of energy and so...a little tricky to catch in one spot long enough to photograph.

In the Studio with Marife (Part I)

Update: Check out part II in the Red Dress Twirl post and now you can even take a peek under the dress in our behind the scenes video here (and even a "how to" tutorial over at Retouching Academy).

Marife was so great and so much fun, I almost doubted her when she said she had never done any modelling before!

If we ask her nicely, maybe we can convince her to do a very special and extra creative Part II....

Back to Nature for the Long Weekend

Another Canadian long weekend is just about here and I'm looking very forward to unplugging from the grid to relax with some really great friends. A few days at Depot Lakes has become somewhat of a tradition over the last couple of years, but this time I'm going to unplug so much that I think I'll even leave my camera gear at home and just take some pictures with my eyes this time!
