"A Whisper In The Dark"
As my summer progresses, some of my favourite captures have surprised me. I’m seeing some of the most beautiful “big and bold” landscapes Canada has to offer but it’s some of the tiniest details of nature which have completely captivated me.
Here’s one from this morning, photographed at The Forks in Winnipeg, Manitoba. I saw the sun’s rays shining through the tiniest of holes in this leaf and couldn’t resist.
"The Moraine Way"
Picturesque Moraine Lake, Banff National Park in Alberta. I’m pretty sure it’s impossible to not be blown away by this area.
Channeling my inner Ansel Adams.
Very honoured to be asked to be one of the initial featured artists on August, a new platform designed with the beautiful goal of connecting artists with people that love art (which I would guess is all of you).
Lots has been said, lately, about how Facebook has changed over the past year by increasingly limiting your (as a person who “likes” a page such as this) access to the images, the art that we share. There’s also been lots of talk about the hope people have that something will come along to better connect artists ( such as photographers, musicians, filmmakers, writers, and designers) with the public. In my mind, August may very well fill this gap by allowing me to share my work in a whole new way.
I encourage you to sign up for the beta version, yourself, at: http://agst.co/ and join their Facebook page at August Corporation
Golden light to cap off a golden day during the recent wedding I photographed in Killam of Ray and Irene Stevenson.
ISO 100, f/13, 1/125-second exposure. Props that help: big beautiful field of canola + golden sunset.
"The Girls of Summer"
Staying on the little person theme….. :-)
With Eyes Like These / I’m Doomed Forever
Lily, Winnipeg - a Prairie portrait. 2014.
"Those Summer Nights"
Just finished up a heck of an amazing experience, photographing the wedding of Irene and Ray. It’s always added pressure when you get asked to photograph the wedding of a fellow photographer (see Homestead Photo by Irene McDermott), but this couple is so easy going I had nothing but 12 hours of laughs (mixed in with a nasty sunburn).
This was the finale of the night, and something that I’m pretty proud of.
Congrats Irene and Ray - and thanks for the Alberta hospitality!
The mean bridges of Saskatoon.
"The Summer Is Magic"
Day five of our cross-country trip and so far, already, it has been full of countless memories. Here is an image with my favourite model, my Lily…enjoying an amazing Edmonton evening.
