Review: The Apple iPad Pro

Apple has a lame horse in their stable. For years now sales of iPad’s have been an underperforming weak spot in a portfolio of otherwise indescribably popular products. As extremely portable laptops continued to get cheaper and more ubiquitous, sales of tablets began to dwindle as consumers no longer felt the need to have a device purely dedicated to consumption. … Read More

Joyeux Noel – Family Christmas 2015

Over the years and as we age, the Holiday season becomes something entirely different in meaning. I’m proud to say that a couple of years ago my family made the commitment to keep the gift giving part of the holidays for the children only. Truthfully, the joy of Christmas is the excitement generated amongst our next generation. But for the … Read More

Around Town – Hamilton Ontario

Earlier today I posted a photo on Instagram I had taken a couple of months ago while I was riding my bike around my city one night.

Candlelight Stroll in Niagara on the Lake

It can be difficult deciding when to shoot and when to put the camera away, especially when it comes to family outings. Recently I have gravitated towards always carrying my camera with me because you never know when good photos can present themselves. The Sony A7RII makes this decision easy, as I can put the very small 28mm 2.0 lens … Read More

Open Roll Podcast with Jurgen Rudolph

Recently I had the opportunity to be a guest on the Open Roll Podcast hosted and created by my friend Jurgen Rudolph. I met Jurgen in an old shack in the hills of Costa Rica where he was on the annual extended vacation he takes, presumably, to reset his system. Perhaps being in paradise affected my assessment of the man, but … Read More

Smilin’ Joe Arko

I butchered my own photo by pasting a cartoon sun on top of it. But I can explain. See, every once in a while you get clients that you take from, when you’re supposed to be giving. Sure, Joe Arko and I had an incredible shoot, produced a significant number of compelling images, and everyone left the experience satisfied. He … Read More

It is one of the main sources of traffic to my expanding website, and I walk a … Read More
