Montecristo Spring 2010


A few months back I made a post introducing you to MONTECRISTO magazine, a lifestyle quarterly in print focused mostly on Vancouver stories, “designed for the discerning, cultured Vancouverite”. It’s cultured but it’s not inaccessible, the stories within it’s pages are super interesting and relevant to people like us who live and love in this city of ours.

I love this magazine and have been honoured to work with them on some stories for recent issues: I shot photos of chocolatier, Thomas Haas, for the last issue and for the upcoming Spring 2010 issue I put together some words about skateboarding in Vancouver accompanied by photographs. This issue comes out next week and they were kind enough to give you, the V.I.A. readers, an exclusive sneak peek at some highlights of the content!
