Yellow Door Theatre Project: Alice in Wonderland

Recently I had the opportunity to travel to Niagara on the Lake and witness the final workshop presentation of the two week summer intensive program put on by the Yellow Door Theatre Project. This presentation of Alice in Wonderland starred my two incredible nieces and the sold out audience was in place to be made aware of the incredible work … Read More

Tour of the Hamilton Animal Shelter

This morning I had the pleasure of touring the Hamilton Animal Shelter with Councillor Aidan Johnson (Ward 1) and Ken Leendertse from the City of Hamilton. We were there for several hours with the purpose of trying to come to a greater understanding of what role the shelter plays in our city. I was there, of course, to put visuals … Read More

January 2016: My Favourite Photos

Early last month I decided to post a year-in-review type of gallery of my own personal favourite photos of mine from the year 2015. What I didn’t realize at the time of creating that post, was how important it would be for me creatively. By reviewing my previous year, it made me really stop and evaluate where I wanted 2016 … Read More

Sony, Nikon and Canon at CES 2016

There has been a lot of backlash in the Sony community that our beloved camera manufacturer didn’t choose to make more of a splash at CES than they did, similar to the cards Nikon played by introducing the D5 and D500 SLR’s to the market. And while users of the A99/A77/A58 (despite rumours that they may not even bother) continue … Read More

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.

True Hamiltonian Shirt Giveaway!

CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED A little under two weeks ago, I was fortunate to be hired by my life-long friend Max Francis to produce a series of gritty images to promote his apparel company True Hamiltonian. It was a last second arrangement and I ventured to the chosen location with a backpack full of gear, ready to shoot… well something. … Read More

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
