HOW TO TAKE THE PERFECT
iPHONE PHOTOGRAPH


Morgan Leet meets Mark Hemmings to Discuss His Brand New Television Show

Mark Hemmings, owner of Mark Hemmings Photography, is a world traveler, author,  professional photographer, and photography instructor. He is also the host of the brand new TV show, Discover Smartphone Photography. The show takes viewers through six episodes of Mark meeting with friends and small business owners to show them how to take the perfect smartphone shot. With different locations, people, and tips, every episode is exciting and incredibly useful! It is a pleasure to watch and is sure to give your social media a level-up.

[EDIT]ION: How did the idea for Discover Smartphone Photography come about?
Mark Hemmings: My brother Greg Hemmings had a show in production with his daughter called Heart Fun and it’s her going around meeting different people and helping the world be a better place. Greg just said, “Well, Mark you should pitch a show as well to Bell Fibe TV1!” This was in the early time of our COVID restrictions and I was thinking, “What do I know or what skills do I have to offer to Saint John, and New Brunswick, and hopefully the world?” And those are that I know how to take pictures, I know photography. Especially because almost everyone has a smartphone, it's a universally easy mode of staying creative.

[EDIT]ION: What do you hope viewers learn and take away at the end of the show?
Mark Hemmings: Well, I’ve done a lot of instruction around the world for photography for the past 15 years, and the biggest problem that people have is not so much technical, but it's feeling like they have the ability to be creative, that they maybe feel not worthy to showcase their images to the world. These are more psychological issues rather than technical. The technical can be learned very easily, that's not a problem. So it's the encouragement for people to realize that yes, they can feel creative, they can be creative, they can create work that they can be proud of. It's so easy these days because with the iPhone or the Android, or any other camera, there's so many wonderful ways to share your vision with the world.

[EDIT]ION: Why do you think it’s important for small businesses to have that confidence, as well as the technique, to put those photos out there?
Mark Hemmings: I absolutely love small businesses and helping small businesses, because of course I am one as well. The other element of the series was indeed to help small businesses. That was to help them with social media presence, help them to a certain extent with branding, and help them with the ability just to take a good shot. Taking a good shot is very important, but also do you have a specific look that you want to carry through your entire social media year? For example, do you have a certain look that would come from a certain filter on a certain app? These are choices that small businesses need to make these days because a lot of business is online and is derived from social media.

[EDIT]ION: Your career has led you to photograph and teach all around the world. What makes Atlantic Canada unique in terms of teaching, and in your own personal photography?
Mark Hemmings: Well one thing I like to point to is that Saint John is absolutely stunning for photography, and I didn't even realize this until recently, to be honest. Whenever we're in a location that we know very well we tend to have the ability not to see. I've learned to see my own city, and actually, if you or your readers check out my Instagram (@markhemmings) I've been doing a series that every day I just go out in the morning and do some street photography in my own city of Saint John. This has really given me that daily vitamin or daily exercise of being creative. I can't travel, not many of us can, so if we can actually lock-in, committing to one photo a day at least, and in your own backyard or your own city or your own woods, then it really helps you emotionally.

[EDIT]ION: Which episode was the most fun to shoot?
Mark Hemmings: I absolutely loved going out to Saints Rest Beach with Mohammed. Mohammed is a friend of mine. He arrived in Saint John with his sweet family and he is such a lovely guy, and what a gem to be able to get up at 6:00 am and head out to the beach and shoot landscape photography. I really also like to make sure, in whatever way I can, that our newcomers are welcome, and I hope that that I helped in some small way.

JULIA MAKES JULES
by Morgan Leet
Photographs by Brock Jorgensen
 
Julia Bustin is a 26-year-old entrepreneur and chef who has built up her handmade polymer clay accessory line into one of Saint John, New Brunswick’s most popular jewelry businesses. I first came to know JULES simply from seeing it everywhere I went in the Uptown Saint John area! From cafes and beauty salons to pop-up markets and boutiques, JULES’s stylish and colorful earrings, rings, necklaces, and hair accessories stand out among the rest. I met with Julia to learn more about how she started her brand, what makes it unique, and the inspiration behind her designs.
 
[EDIT]ION: You grew up here in Saint John, New Brunswick, but what has kept you here and what do you love about living in Atlantic Canada?
Julia Bustin: I think Saint John is really amazing, and so are all of the incredible small businesses that we have, a lot owned by women as well which is fantastic. My family is here, and I’m a big family person, so they’ve also kept me here. I started my culinary journey about four years ago, and now I work at Italian By Night and I love it there so I don’t see myself leaving anytime soon. I really just love the community though. Saint Johners are awesome.
 
[EDIT]ION: Working as a chef at the same time as running your own businesses must keep you busy! How do you find room for self-care, what do you do to relax?
Julia Bustin: I do read a lot of self-help and therapy material when I do have the time for it. I find it helps center me and brings my focus back. I also exercise a few times a week and keep up with my diet!
 
[EDIT]ION: What drew you to jewelry making originally?
Julia Bustin: When I was young, my mom always had crafts to keep us busy and to use as an artistic outlet. We’re a very artistic family. We were using beads and thread, and jewels, and I think I used polymer clay once but it wasn’t for jewelry. But I always wanted to be good at it and go back to it. A little over a year ago, I started using it again just because I needed a new outlet. I used to paint and draw but it wasn’t doing it for me at the time. It was a very harsh winter. So, I started again with the polymer clay and made a few earrings and it was a lot of fun!
 
[EDIT]ION: You mentioned your family, and your father was an opera singer, and you mother studied ceramics. Did this family involvement in the arts foster your creativity when you were growing up, and ultimately push you to become entrepreneurial?
Julia Bustin: Oh absolutely, yeah! Art has always been my thing, it’s what makes me happy and what makes me calm. It’s a great stress reliever for a lot of people, including myself. But yeah, we were always involved in music and I loved writing and literature when I was younger too. My parents really pushed me to pursue it, so it was kind of a no-brainer that I was going to go in an art direction.
 
[EDIT]ION: Why do you use polymer clay for your pieces and what makes this material different?
Julia Bustin: Polymer clay is great. I always wanted to experiment with ceramics but finding a kiln in Saint John is difficult. Polymer clay though is incredibly versatile - you can make jewelry, you can make figurines or wall hangings. There are endless possibilities. It is also very user-friendly, for any age. You bake it in the oven and in 30 minutes then  you have your piece that’s created and ready to go!
 
[EDIT]ION: Wow! That’s so encouraging for anyone who wants to get creative right now and try out being artistic or an artisan, something like that you can do at home even with kids! Where do you draw your unique inspiration from though, when creating your pieces?
Julia Bustin: I look at gaps in the market, what I like to wear, and I look at my own closet actually. I find a lot of times when I buy new pieces, I don’t have jewelry to match it or complement it, so I’ll make something like that! That’s why I love commissions too because I can match for people. Teal and sea green colors are really hard to find in jewelry, and so I experimented with that this summer while I was doing markets. But linework is really fun, I do a lot of pressing too, with cedar which is a very waxy and lovely plant that I press into my clay and it creates really whimsical and botanical patterns.
 
[EDIT]ION: What has it been like building up your brand here in Saint John? What do you appreciate most about our small business community?
Julia Bustin: I appreciate how welcoming people are. I think people would be shocked if you came from anywhere else, but as a Saint Johner I don’t think it’s shocking. When I started, I did over ten popups and people were just so excited to welcome new artists and new businesses and I think we all just feed off of each other and continuously support one another.

SPLINTER SISTERS
Designing and Building Custom Woodworking Solutions
in Sydney, Nova Scotia

by Jennifer Wood

When Melissa Chenell was in her 20’s, the smell of sawdust struck an emotional chord that led her to rediscover her first-ever passion: woodworking. Today she is the CEO of Splinter Sisters, a thriving all-female custom-design woodworking solutions company in Sydney, Nova Scotia. Chenell moved to Sydney in 2015 with her fiancé, Mike, a retired veteran, so that they could be closer to Mike’s family, especially Chenell’s stepdaughter, Hailey. 
 
When she was a young girl, Melissa was obsessed with woodworking – she grew up on the Ȋles de la Madeleine, more specifically, Entry Island, a town of 150 people. As a child, she spent her days following her father around his workshop, asking question after question, and truth be told, misplacing all his tools! She received her first tool bench and set of tools at just seven years old, and she began to make custom gifts straight away. She was passionate about woodworking and creating throughout her teen years, but lost sight of the craft for a short time.
 
“I purchased my first home with Mike, here in Sydney five years ago and when we started renovating, I quickly discovered that I knew more than I thought I did,” Chenell tells [EDIT]ION from her Sydney studio, with her companion, a chocolate lab named Lacey Lou by her side. “I fell back in love with the smell of sawdust and I couldn't turn back. My younger sister, Wendy is great at acrylic painting – she was creating small and large art pieces and décor, so we decided to join our talents and create Splinter Sisters together in 2016. She has since taken a leave from the company to focus on raising her family. We miss her!”
 
Just four years later, the creative designer is happy to report that she is just managing to keep up with demand. Her business is currently experiencing a major surge. The self-taught designer works alongside three other female woodworkers and she is working upwards of one hundred hours per week to meet the purchase orders of Christmastime.
 
A keen problem solver, Melissa likes nothing more than designing and building custom furniture that is both beautiful, practical and unique.
 
“We help businesses and individuals design pieces that fit their life. And that can mean fit their budget, space and/or style. A typical client is someone that is struggling to find what they are looking for in a big box store. Sometimes this means a customer who can’t find a dining table small enough to fit their tiny kitchen, or a business that is looking for original furniture for their waiting room, or a restaurant that is striving for a custom, fresh look. We like to think of ourselves as problem solvers because everyone has a space in their home that they either can’t figure out what exactly to do with or they just can’t find the right piece to fit that space. I love the creative process of what I do. When I sit down with a client or chat back-and-forth with them, I always listen for the problem area, the pain points, the underlying issue that they’re trying to solve.”
 
And as far as living in and working in a small community goes, there is no other place that the creator would rather be.
 
“I love living in a smaller community because it feels like home. It’s also really good for word-of-mouth advertising because everyone knows everyone, and everyone talks to everyone! Another great thing about Cape Breton is the amount of support bestowed upon local businesses - I’ve never witnessed this kind of support anywhere else - it’s totally amazing.”

THE FAMILY FUDGE FACTORY
 by Morgan Leet
 
Cobbler’s Lane Fudge Factory is a family-run business through and through, so much so that it was actually started by Sandi and Andrew Smith’s 13-year-old daughter, Brayley. In July of 2018, Brayley’s parents rented space from Apohaqui's general store and set her up there with a fudge kettle and the intention simply “to give her something to do for the summer,” Sandi Smith tells [EDIT]ION. The family never expected the explosive demand for their fudge though, and this past summer, they were able to move to their very own location in Sussex, New Brunswick because they are growing so quickly.
 
Sandi describes Brayley, the genius behind the fudge making, as “always baking since she was just a couple of years old. She was always hiding in the kitchen with the door shut and we weren’t allowed to see. Fudge was one of those things that she wouldn’t tell us how she was making it, she would just give me a list of things to go pick up and from there I was just guessing what she was doing!”
 
Now their family fudge operation employs eight young girls, between the ages of 15 to 20 years old. The mission behind hiring them all is “to expose them to business, but also to be creative,” says Sandi. The girls are able to use their creativity freely in flavour development, together making over 40 different fudge options that are all equally delicious! They are set apart not just by the flavors though, but also by the fact that everything is handmade. All of their fudge is created, made, cut, and packaged by them, not an easy process to do as it is a near 24-hour procedure from start to finish.
 
Business is booming for the factory with corporate orders and Christmas gifts, so make sure to stop in early enough to have all of the flavors to choose from! Right now, you can try their holiday flavors such as hot chocolate, candy cane, and even chicken bone!

BUBBLES & BALMS
by Morgan Leet

Justin and Judith Sweeny created Bubbles & Balms in 2014 with the mission of better bathing. Their all-natural product lines feature soaps, bar shampoos, deodorant, face care, body care, baby care, and essential oils! Justin met with [EDIT]ION’s Morgan Leet to discuss the inspiration behind the brand.
 
After seeing the need for all-natural products to meet their own sensitive skincare concerns, the pair’s passion for creating products was born. That wasn’t enough though since they also wanted to make their brand completely zero-waste. Justin describes this powerful goal simply as “the legacy we are leaving for our children and the legacy as a brand. What we are doing to make the world not just a place where people have the skincare that they need, but just a better world in general.” And that’s exactly what they did. After overcoming the roadblocks of the industry, they finally reached their zero-waste goal this year! Justin also urges consumers to “take one step back at the grocery store and look at the wall of shampoo and body wash bottles and think about how that’s just one of the walls, in one of the stores, in one province, and in one country.”
 
Most recently Bubbles & Balms have opened up a pop-up shop in Saint John, New Brunswick’s Market Square. “Market Square is great and has allowed us to do a pick-up service on the boardwalk. So on the weekdays, they are going to open the gates for us on each end of the boardwalk so we can actually do a drive-by, contactless, curbside pick-up,” says Justin. Despite recent restrictions, they have made the most out of the space and are working on creating content videos that will give in-depth product tutorials and ingredient deep dives.
 
Although walk-ins as of right now are limited to four customers in the store at once, you are able to book a personal shopping experience by visiting their website. This will allow you to get a complete walkthrough of the products, and you can create a custom gift set for your loved one. Even better, they can ship the gift right from the store location for you!
 
The passion behind Bubbles & Balms, their amazing mission, innovative pop-up, and quality products make it the perfect place to experiment with all-natural skincare products or gift them this year!

THE ART OF URSULA JOHNSON
The Mi’kmaw Artist on Learning New Ways to Share Her Art
by Jennifer Wood
 
Multidisciplinary Mi’kmaw artist Ursula Johnson combines the tradition of basket weaving with sculpture, installation, and performance art. Her work seeks to both educate and confront viewers about issues of colonial history, tradition and identity. She graduated from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design and was later selected as a finalist for the Salt Spring National Art Prize and has twice been long listed for the prestigious Sobey Art Award. 
 
In March 2020, Johnson had just arrived in Sydney, Australia to take part in aabaakwad 2020, a four-day gathering of Indigenous artists, curators and thinkers when she learned about the pandemic.
 
I was able to stay to fulfill my commitment to perform, but the entire conference and festival had to be changed within minutes, as we had such a huge international delegation,” Johnson tells [EDIT]ION. “After the performance, I cut my visit short and returned home.”
 
Once back in Eskasoni, Nova Scotia, Johnson began to reconsider her performance art and how she could share it with others.
 
“The pandemic has made me rethink this idea of site specificity with regards to performance and intervention works - from home and using platforms that require the internet. Living rurally has posed a challenge with regards to connectivity. But my wife (Angella Parsons) and I are lucky enough to have a studio and office space at the local community hall that has a pilot project whereby the internet is made available. I quickly shifted my focus to look at creating works that can be either worked on collaboratively outside of my own space, but also at looking to work with various fabricators and skilled professionals to create new works that explore site specificity without needing to gather several people in one room. I am currently working on some public art commissions, one of which I cannot officially name yet, and the other is for the Thunder Bay Art Gallery.”
 
Recent months have given Johnson the opportunity to slow down and work on projects that she could not get to before. She is planning on spending the winter researching and creating new animated stories (thanks to the support of Arts NS for their Mi’kmaq Creative Arts Program). She will also be hosting online storytelling and music workshops. Be sure to check out her Facebook and Instagram pages for up-to-date information.

Dear New Brunswickers,

As we move into the winter months, our entrepreneurs are gearing up to offer classically Canadian experiences. New Brunswick has a lot to offer this season, from weekends spent skiing the slopes and snowshoeing, to cozying up in premium accommodations and adventuring outdoors.

It’s time to celebrate all that we are able to do this winter and support our local businesses in a safe and responsible way. Exploring some of our faster-paced outdoor activities, like snowmobiling or dog sledding, is one way to do this.

As we head into this season of giving, consider the gift of a winter experience. Imagine the fun of finding a snowmobile trail pass wrapped under the tree, or a ski pass tucked in your stocking? How about some gift certificates to a local restaurant, cultural event, taproom, or even a nearby hotel?

It is the perfect way to shop safely and support the local tourism industry this holiday season!

Wherever you are in New Brunswick, let's keep rediscovering our province, and stay safe.


Please stay up to date on current Public Health alerts at gnb.ca/covidrecovery before your visit.
 
READY TO RUMBLE?
by Morgan Leet
Photographs by Top Rope Photography and Currie Cine Media

Fight League Atlantic is a globally known Nova Scotian Martial Arts brand, which has impressively pivoted during the pandemic to be able to pull off an insanely successful event, launch a new podcast, and keep growing. After a sold-out MMA event in February, they then moved on to hold a world-class grappling event last month which sold record pay-per-view numers in over 11 countries. After six years of hard work, owners Derek Clarke and Jon Foster have grown the East Coast MMA community beyond belief, and they aren't done yet. Co-owner Derek Clarke met with [EDIT]ION and explained their back story as a business.

After seeing the lack of support behind fighting as a sport they took it upon themselves to grow the community and popularize it. For them, it’s also about “giving back to the athletes, making sure they're looked after, and referring them to the proper channels. It’s kind of the full-on package that we offer. That's how it got started because no one else was doing that,” says Derek. Derek explains that despite the misconception of fighting being aggressive, it is actually a meditative sport that helped him personally. “It's a mental thing,” says Derek. “I can go out there and train and not worry about anything else, and that’s when my mind kind of shuts off.”

Many have a similar experience, using the sport to help them through difficult mental health struggles and as a safe outlet. The growing community is a welcoming one and Derek invites those who don’t know a lot about it to “take the leap and maybe get yourself out to a jiu-jitsu club and see what it's like. The amount of positive reinforcement that can come out of these sports is totally unlike your regular gym, no one is staring at you and everyone wants to help you. Just open your mind.” Their podcast, FLA Exposure, is also a great way to do so, as it brings in athletes for in-depth interviews that help audiences connect with them as well as the intention behind the sport as a whole.

You can stream the FLA Exposure Podcast on all of your podcast platforms as well as watch the live stream on Youtube and Facebook.

DENNIS ELLSWORTH'S
BOUND BY LOVE

by Morgan Leet
Photographs by Heather Doyle
 
Prince Edward Island performer, songwriter, and producer Dennis Ellsworth is breaking ground with his upcoming release of three albums, set over the course of the next six months. The intention behind the series, titled Bound by Love, is to place a focus on artist-first releases as opposed to traditional releases on more popular streaming platforms. "With COVID-19, live music revenue has vanished, and with a broken royalty system for streaming, artists are taking a real hit. We're not coming together and sharing experiences like we used to. Whatever rules we were following before are up for reimagining,” says Dennis.

He is certainly reimagining with this new series, the full project only being available through Bandcamp, where you can purchase the albums in digital formats, CDs or LPs. You will also be able to get a taste of this exciting new series through streaming services though, as three EPs will be available there.

Ellsworth’s unique colliding of musical styles, extensive experience, and many collaborations with artists such as Josh Finlayson and Andy Maize of Skydiggers, Gord Downie and Joel Plaskett, never disappoints, and this newest series is definitely something to look forward to.

DEREK SEGUIN ON THE [EDIT] PODCAST!
 
Montreal-based stand up Derek Seguin is undeniably one of Canada’s hottest comedians. He has performed at the prestigious Just For Laughs festival an impressive seven times and he filmed a gala set for HBO at the festival where he received a standing-ovation from a sold out audience of 3,500 people. He is also the winner of Sirius XM’s Top Comic contest making him officially the funniest person in Canada.

Perhaps most impressively, he has appeared on (and won) CBC’s The Debaters more than any other comedian in history. His new concert album Panderek (1st Wave!) is available now on CD and iTunes and was recorded at Montreal’s The Comedy Nest the weekend before lockdown in March this year. He was one of the first comedians to successfully transition to virtual shows and James chats with him about the intricacies of this new form of live entertainment.
