hi there! my name is jjparé (pr. 'pah-ray') and i am a toronto-based photographer and graphic designer. if you want, you can check out my portfolio at jjpare.com. i also have work spread out across the usual kinds of websites you might expect someone like me to use, like flickr, tumblr, behance, model mayhem and facebook. i also have a twitter account, but i never use it.

this blog is meant to be a bit of a showcase of some of my more recent design and photography projects. i also keep a couple of 'inspiration' blogs, including ones for illustration & graphic design, fashion and portrait photography as well as photography that is a little more on the sexy/nude side of things.
