I received my first camera credit on the big screen for this sensitive look at the cold, dry experience of coming of age in the era of online dating.

I got the awesome opportunity to work with the elegant and hilarious Priyanka Chopra on this Blenders Pride commercial a few months back. It was shot by the legendary DOP Robert Richardson, who’s CV includes all your favourite films like both Kill Bills, Platoon, The Doors, Natural Born Killers, JFK, Aviator, Inglorious Bastards, Casino, Django Unchained etc. If you don’t know of him look up his catalogue and be entertained for days. Amber Fairlie of The Manor Salon in Toronto came through in a hair emergency and saved the day. Many thanks to P.M. Lisa Ericsson for giving me this opportunity. It was a blast! xo
I just completed my first placement as a camera trainee on the path to becoming a full-fledged member of the International Cinematographers Guild. I was lucky enough to be placed on the camera team of Suits Season 9 for six weeks. It was one of the greater challenges of my life and I learned a ton from some of the best in the business. I grew strong from hauling gear and I deepened my patience in the process. The set flow and shooting routine of a sitcom are now familiar to me. I am excited for my next job where hopefully I will be a little less green. I love getting paid to learn and I have found myself in yet another situation where I can do so. Stay tuned for the progress. xo
Here are a few outtakes from a recent shoot for The Goddess Array featuring Miss Candice as Kakia, Goddess of Vice. The selected image will be featured in the full series in The Goddess Array coffee table book coming soon. Copies are available at a discounted rate for presale at https://jennifertoole.com/Shop-2. The print run will be a limited edition of 100 signed copies. Here is a bit more about Kakia:
“Kakia (Vice) is adorned with #gold and necklaces, and her cheeks are painted and her hair delicately plaited and her eyes underlined with #henna; and she also wears golden slippers, for she is pictured strutting about in these; but Arete (Virtue) in the picture resembles a woman worn out with toil, with a pinched look; and she has chosen for her adornment rough squalor, and she goes without shoes in the plainest of raiment, and she would have appeared naked if she had not too much regard for feminine decency . . . imagine that you hear the one telling you how she will strew flowers under you and you lie down to sleep, yes, and by #Heaven, how she will regale you upon milk and #nourish you with honey-comb, and how she will supply you with #nectar and wings, whenever you want them; and how she will wheel in tripods, whenever you drink, and golden #thrones; and you shall have no hard work to do, but everything will be flung unsought into your lap. But the other #disciplineinsists that you must lie on the bare ground in squalor, and be seen to toil naked like ourselves; and that you must not find dear or sweet anything which you have not won by hard work; and that you must not be boastful, nor hunt after #vanities and pursue #pride; and that you must be on your guard against all #dreams and #visions which lift you off the earth.”
Which would you choose? 💋🍷💄👠🍇🥊🚨💰💰💰💰
