Ben Trovato first saw the light of day in July 2009. Through passion and dedication, creator Marius Troy has created a platform where his vision to help aspiring fashion photographers become discovered, as well as generating inspiration to all interested in the art form, can be accomplished.

Since its creation, Ben Trovato has had almost 100 million hits, and millions of visits. It has been featured in fashion magazines all over the world, and has quickly grown to be the place the business turns to for inspiration and new, raw talent.

BT has opened doors for hundreds of photographers, made careers, and been a portal where not only the successful photographers had their work featured, but a place where the up and coming talents are selected to showcase their work.

The site has grown not only in status and popularity, but in size as well. Fall 2010, Founder and Editor in Chief Marius Troy invited Belgian art and fashion enthusiast Bjørn Van Poucke as part of the team, responsible as Assistant Editor and Marketing Manager. The most recent addition as Communications Manager, Michelle Lanning, finalizes the Holy Trinity Ben Trovato stands for. (taken from blog)

This is an exciting day. A publishing in XO MAGAZINE has occurred through the creative collaboration of the lovely people above! The issue was called HOMME. This shoot is working with a theme of an androgynous interaction between two individuals. A romance is created where the connection is felt but with a mix of female and males where the roles are not certain and the sex is not necessarily definable especially in clothing and stance.

It was absolutely fantastic working with all of these people and our work was worth the effort! For the link, to browse the magazine online, or to purchase click below!

I had the chance of getting to work on two entries this year for the Contessa hair competition! It is the longest running and most prestigious hairstylist competition in Canada. It is also the highest award that could be received for salon professionals across Canada! If your interested in more….

This competitor’s name is Tim Kuo of Markus J. Hair here in Vancouver, Kits area. His hairstyles were very bold and clean accompanied by bright solid colors in the styling. I think the results are very impressive! Check him out

Good luck Tim!

This shoot is another done with the beautiful, in body and spirit, Charity Plamondon! Every shoot is an adventure, exploring new territory and all the beauty it has to offer. We will not be letting these phenomenal natural backdrops in British Columbia go to waste.

It was the first time for me working with photographer Kent Wingerak and I have to say that over all this day, although being long, was quite a pleasure! He is an award winning Vancouver photographer with plenty of experience in film and photography. To check out all he has to off just click on the link below!
