Globe & Mail video series, started in 2013. Style Eye is a companion series to TVCITY STREET STYLE, and combines that series’ strong aesthetic approach, with a more journalistic focus on trends and fashion issues

STYLE EYE #22



All about TATTOOS

STYLE EYE #21


I threw a small basketball at the mayor. Also NBA players aren’t THAT tall, but Dkembe Motumbo is that tall.

Style Eye #20


My 20th Style Eye video! This is officially a ‘long-running series’.
This video started off with the simple goal of finding someone who blows their nose on something designed to blow your nose on. It quickly devolved into nervous insanity at I was talking to stylish, serious, and handsome men who have better things to do than bike around all day asking people about pocket squares. At some point I realized that the story was really about generational divides in fashion- we see something that was designed with a functional purpose turning into something purely ornamental, and then reach a postmodern phase where the current generation is actively repurposing other accessories that no longer have relevance into ones that do.

STYLE EYE 16


Humans of Toronto- I’m talking to people on the streets now. DAN ON THE STREET.

STYLE EYE 15


There’s a cuteness and elegance to Toronto Fashion Week and I think this new video captures some of that scene. It felt like the photographer to subject ratio was a bit high, but it was unseasonably cold and few people were hanging out outside.

Style Eye 14


Shot at the AGO First Thursdays Basquiat party!

Style Eye #13


Blue is the Warmest Colour- because it’s a cold winter and blue hair seems to be the thing right now. Lots of burgundy heads, but that’s from hats, often with matching burgundy boots.

Setting the world on fire with fashion week STREET STYLE.

STYLE EYE 11


A new super dynamic STYLE EYE video shot at the Toronto International Film Festival. Whip-pans a plenty.

STYLE EYE #10


The latest STYLE EYE video for the Globe & Mail, showcasing that summer is all about bright colour and bold print (except for when it’s about all-black).

Style Eye #9


A different style of entry in my series STYLE EYE for the Globe & Mail. Without my usual representative aesthetic, I’ve mixed it up a bit, and included some Edgar Wright-style whip pans.

Style Eye #8


My favourite video for so far for the Globe & Mail. I was really pumped to see people dressed to have fun instead of dressing to not die from punishing cold winds.

That’s right- it’s the Toronto International Full-Frontal Fassbinder Film Festival! So I made a video.

Style Eye #1

My first Street Style video for the Globe & Mail! Thanks to my producer Hannah Sung for helping refine and develop the format going forward. None of these videos would ever be possible without the inspiring example provided by Bill Cunningham at the New York Times (this video is super especially dedicated to Bill Cunningham), and I’m happy to be making videos for a news organization with such high levels of integrity as the Globe & Mail (is it cool for me to refer to it as the Globe?).

While the process of making these videos is very enjoyable and rewarding, making seventy videos in two years has been hard work. If you watch and love this series, then support me by sharing this one. My continued ability to make these is tied to the success of this video and an upcoming one to be filmed during the Toronto International Film Festival.
