074642405523In 1999, I received a phone call from Sony Music. They were in need of CD art for Dan Hill’s “love of my life” best of and they felt my work would compliment the music he was about to release.

Dan Hill is an Award winning singer/songwriter and author. Born in Toronto, Dan is one of the most respected and successful artists to come out of Canada. Some of his most popular singles include “Sometimes When We Touch” and “Can’t We Try”.

THE VAULT - Dan Hill Double Polaroid

He has written songs for many many artists including Celine Dion, Britney Spears, Michael Bolton, and Reba McEntire.

The shoot took place in studio and on location over the course of 2 days. We shot a lot of different things and had a great time. We built three different sized cubes in order to give each item or person similar presence in the shots.

The images were shot in black and white as well as colour. The colour images were not released, this is the first time I am showing them.

I was going through some prints this week and I just so happened to come across another image I had shot of Dan.It was taken at the Juno Awards sometime around 1978, many years before I knew I would photograph him for Sony. He had just won Male Vocalist of the Year – Burton Cummings and Gordon Lightfoot had also been nominated.
