For some reason, when you live in a city, you take for granted the very things to which tourists flock. So when I was on Toronto’s Centre Island to play volleyball, I decided to take along my camera gear and stay into the evening hours to do something that I have wanted to do for some time, but haven’t because, well, I live here—take pictures of the beautiful cityscape of Toronto at night.
Liam was a natural in the studio, he would stir occasionally when placed in a new position, but he settled quickly. Then again, I guess after spending the first two weeks of life in neonatal intensive care, an afternoon lounging on different furs and blankets all the while being prodded, poked, and posed is a walk in the park.
I have always loved Nikon, ever since I was old enough to notice my father using one to take pictures. And I love Porsche, ever since I first laid eyes on the blur of a ‘whale tail’ 911 Turbo as it roared past me on the autobahn when I was eight. I’ve been able to afford the former, the latter will be forever out of my reach, well almost. When Nikon and Porsche joined together for a photo contest, looking for rooftop design and architecture, it was a contest to good to pass up.
Prom is the precursor to a wedding day, with designer dresses and suits, limos, and extravagant evenings. Most go all out to make this night one of the most memorable in their lives, well until the next milestone.
It’s not often that you can say you were in the presence of a true beauty queen, but that’s exactly what happened, when Kelly, who had recently been named a 2014 national finalist for Miss Canada Petite, strolled into the studio.
The sport of curling is not lucrative and lots of sacrifices are made. But these athletes don’t do it for the money, they do it for the love…the love of the sport and maybe even a dream of a little glory down the road.
Looking for a camera carrying system which leaves your camera safe and accessible, while keeping hands, hips, and back free for other things? Well then the Cotton Carrier Camera Vest is for you. Add to that the newly designed Universal Adapter Plate, and even tripod shooters are looked after.
With the Tangled FX app, a single tap on your mobile device transforms a ho-hum, run-of-the-mill, ordinary picture into a striking work of art that wouldn’t look out of place along side a multimillion dollar collection of impressionist or expressionist (post or not) paintings. Yes it’s that good.
There was a time where I felt that taking sunset and sunrise pictures was rather cliché. But I rekindled my passion for taking sunset and sunrise pictures by embracing it as a challenge to get a quality image, one worthy of sharing with others and one that compliments my portfolio instead of defines it.
In portrait photography, it’s special when a series of photos tell a story and give some insight into the personality of the subject, be it real, implied, or open to interpretation. Another way to tell this story is to literally put the pictures together to make one final image like we did here with Cindy in Guildwood Park.
