Cassandra in a web

Tuesday, January 19th, 2010

A couple months ago Cassandra came to me with a fantastic jungle gym she had found. You know how they are making all the playgrounds “safer” these days by ripping out the fun wooden ones and replacing them with “soft” plastic? Well, this one somehow made it through the approval process despite that!

Because of the cold weather we hadn’t been able to use it for a shoot until now, and even so we ended up with numb hands and barely finished before the local wind warning that evening kicked in!

Cassandra used to be a gymnast when she was younger, so she was the perfect model for this shoot. (more…)

[b]ecker comes to Calgary!

Tuesday, November 17th, 2009

On Sunday I joined a few photographer friends to go to Calgary to go to [b]ecker‘s workshop at the U of C. We spent the entire day listening to his thoughts on all aspects of what he does – working with clients, how he runs his business, how he manages his photos, and how he has built his image/brand. The day was worth tenfold what we were charged to be there; I came out with so many great ideas and totally inspired! I’m so glad I was able to go to this.

p.s. The cowboy hat was a gift from the organizer to welcome him to Calgary :)

Onto the photos! (more…)

Street Wheelers Show & Shine

Monday, July 13th, 2009

I always enjoy going to the Street Wheelers weekend in Lethbridge. I love the old cars, especially everything pre-1960s, but with all the people at the park it’s hard to get good full shots of the vehicles. Instead, I focus on the details :)

Boston / Photoshop World 2009

Sunday, April 5th, 2009

Two weeks ago I attended my very first Photoshop World, which was held in Boston MA. I was joined by co-worker and fellow photographer Michael Warf, and we had a phenomenal time! I learnt a huge amount at the convention, and our after hours shooting filled my portfolio with some wonderful things.

Naturally, on the slideshow above I had to pay homage to one of my all time favorite bands, the band who “saved” me from pop music, the Mighty Mighty Bosstones. Secretly I wished terribly to run into at least one member of the band while there… but sadly I don’t think they hang around Photoshop conventions!

WPPI Las Vegas 2009

Wednesday, March 18th, 2009


How could I NOT use the most cliched song for this? ;)

I figured it would be a good idea to blog about WPPI 2009 in Las Vegas before I run off to Photoshop World in Boston next week!

This is a longer entry, so there are more after the cut!
