Hey guys,

I just got the news that I may be headed to Peru this May to work on a Portrait Project for Passion Passport. Awesome, right? 

The one catch is that I’m now in a voting war with the four other finalists. To make it through, I need your help.

I know you’re all pretty busy. That CBC is also running a similar contest (although for this one you only have to vote once!.) So here’s how I plan to return the favour. Aside from providing you with AWESOME content from my trip, I’ll be celebrating the win by giving away three prints to random voters!

Just pop me a message, let me know that you got this, and that you’ve voted.

Cheers guys. Feel free to share this with you friends!

You can vote one time. And voting ends Sunday!

“YOUR Canada. MY Sri Lanka. The man hadn’t pressed particular emphasis into the pronouns but I felt the weight behind them. My country of origin was the first question people asked. Even though it was the one part of my identity I had absolutely no control over it seemed to be the most important part of who I was.”I’ve got another piece up on Maptia. I’d be thrilled it you gave it a read.

Some photographers approach their subject to capture an image. To me, the thrill of portraiture lies in that moment of mutual curiosity before the camera comes out.
