“Princess, just because we cracked a few cases with fairy tales before doesn’t mean it’s going to work again this time...”

After retrieving the memories of an amnesia-stuck royal and recovering the whereabouts of the mysterious Miss Melody Merchant, Princess Abigail and Detective Reid Simon have joined forces to take down the corrupt crime boss Fortress Jones in this thrilling fairy-tale film noir. Princess Confidential: Fortress Falls is the third part in Promise Productions’ Princess Confiential series with a new play ever two years since the 2013 Edmonton Fringe Festival. This latest instalment is sure to thrill ages 6 to 106, and audiences don’t need to have seen previous plays to catch this caper!

Written and Directed by Ellen Chorley
Featuring Merran Carr-Wiggin and Neil Kuefler

Special Appearance by Evan Edward Hall

The Hollywoodland Burlesques


Have you bought your tickets yet? 

Well, you can't because they aren't on sale yet, but when they are, SNAP THEM UP QUICKLY!

On the heels of two completely sold-out Fringe runs, these girls are back with their newest show, The Hollywoodland Burlesques.

We were honoured to once again be in charge of their photos and promotional material. 

We're pretty happy with how it turned out.

See the other work we have done for them in the Design section of our page.

See you at the Edmonton Fringe!

Snow Globe Festival of Children's Theatre - 2012

It's that time of year again! The snow has fallen, there is a jingle in the malls as you rush to get your shopping done, and back warming children's hearts for another year is the Snow Globe Festival of Children's Theatre, running December 18-22 at the C-103 (formerly the Catalyst theatre).

Promise Productions' annual gift to the city of Edmonton is back for it's second year. I had the privilege once again to handle all the graphic design and photography for this theatre festival.

If you have young ones, or are young at heart, you will not be disappointed with the awesome line up this year.

The festival is featuring:

Babes in Toyland by Rebecca Ryland

Robin Hoodby Kathryn Schultz Miller


Birdie on the Wrong Bus by the festival's own Ellen Chorley

Tickets are on sale now at Tix on the Square and more information can be found on their website: or on their Facebook page.

Here are some of the shots I did for the festival.

Enjoy and hope to see you there.

A Brontë Burlesque - Held Over!

Send in the Girls Burlesque had another amazing fringe run. Their show, 'A Brontë Burlesque' was sold out once again and was held over by Fringe Theatre Adventures for two additional sold out performances.

I had the pleasure of shooting the first of the two hold over shows. These ladies outdid themselves this year. I can't wait to see what is up their sleeves for next year's festival.

Check out other shows we have shot in the Events section of our site.

A Brontë Burlesque

Send in the Girls returns with their new soon to be Edmonton International Fringe Festival hit, A Brontë Burlesque!

These sold out mavens of burlesque are bringing their unique spin on the Tudor Queens, and this time applying it to the lives of Charlotte, Anne, Emily and Branwel Brontë. Once again I had the pleasure of being their official photographer and poster designer.

The idea was to keep it similar to last year's design while at the same time coming off fresh and original. To add to that, this is the first time I also designed Facebook Timeline cover photos for each of the ladies to display on their personal pages as well as a group one for the Send in the Girls Burlesque page.

It was a lot of fun and I'm really proud of how it turned out. Really hope to see you at the show this August.

Send in the Girls Burlesque - March Madness

Send in the Girls Burlesque is BACK!

This time they are hitting the New City Legion with an awesome review called 'March Madness'. I always love working with these girls. Always the consummate professionals. They know what they want from the photos but aren't afraid to try something new.

I love how these photos turned out. Brad and I were talking about some of the most rewarding elements of photography for us, and right up on the list is the ability to take seemingly bland locations and make them into something awesome. 

50 points if you can figure out where these ladies are standing!

Check out our Design section for the poster of the event!
