I’m Back!

So it seems like it has been forever since I did a blog post. Due to health issues, I have been absent on here for the better part of a year. I was born with Tetralogy of Fallot (heart problems) and every so many years I need to get my pulmonary valve replaced. Well after a long year of tests and laying in bed with zero energy, I finally had my 4th heart surgery in July 2014. I am now feeling much better and looking forward to getting back to shooting photos and making great art. It is amazing how far technology has come. This was the first...

The Deer Family

A different kind of family shoot I was out with a friend shooting some landscapes. As we were about to leave I spotted something moving in the woods. To my great surprise it was a group of deer. It’s not often I get the chance to photograph wildlife. I know there is lots on the outskirts of the city so it was pretty cool to see them and capture some shots. Are we connected? LIKE me on...

Todd & Amanda Baby Bump

I did a baby bump session back in December for a fellow photographer/friend. I was honoured that Todd and Amanda allowed me to share in such an exciting time for them as they prepared for their first child. I am pleased to say they now have a healthy baby boy Mason, and I can’t wait to meet him! Congratulations Todd and Amanda! Are we connected? LIKE me on...

Olivia

I had a fun mini shoot with Olivia. She is a natural in front of the camera. It was a very relaxed shoot and I think one of my favorite shots is the first one where I caught her playing with her shirt and not expecting me to shoot. She is the grand daughter of a friend and fellow photographer and will be moving to town soon to continue her education. I look forward to shooting with her again. Are we connected? LIKE me on...

#7/100 Andrew, Eric, Noah & Eugene

#7/100 Strangers – Andrew, Eric, Noah & Eugene I met this group of friends out on Callander Bay ice fishing. I was there with the photoclub for a day of shooting when I seen them out on the ice. The fish were not biting much that day but after the week of -43c weather we just had, I think we were all glad to be out and doing something. It was a pretty grey day and snowing with the temp hovering around -20c with the windchill. Andrew was visiting from Barrie, Ontario and the rest of the guys are from Corbeil. They were very friendly...

The Art of Self Portraits

I remember getting my first DSLR for Christmas 2008. On boxing day I jumped right in and started a self portrait project. It was such a great way to force yourself to shoot everyday and come up with new ideas. As the year went on you find yourself learning so much about photography, Photoshop and yes even yourself. I remember I was very camera shy when I started. Now I will lay down in the road in front of a crowd to get the shot if need be. It was a year of ups and downs. I broke my ankle, I became diabetic and most importantly I pushed...

The Jade Amulet

I had the opportunity to work with some local talent again to finish off The Jade Amulet short film. It was a great collaboration. I did the photography & graphic design and was camera b operator.
