Mary is Haunted [Personal Project]

Tuesday, April 12th, 2011

The concept for this photo shoot has been rotting (har har) away in my brain since January. During the winter I couldn’t stop listening to Dead Man’s Bones – that’s Ryan Gosling’s band, by the way – and was in love with the eerie, ethereal visions and ideas that popped into my head when I was listening to it. Finally this took shape, and I knew Marie and a white dress would be perfect, but I had to patiently wait for the snow to melt and the ground to warm up so that having her out there in bare feet wouldn’t be too torturous. Mary was as amazing as last time, and I gave her an even harder workout than when I had made her jump across dirt roads repeatedly.

Normally for personal work I do zombies, so I guess I just can’t step outside of the supernatural ;)

p.s. Only one photo is a composite. Can you guess which one? (more…)

DrupalCon Chicago, Part III

Thursday, March 17th, 2011

By Thursday, I was definitely ready to go home even though I was enjoying myself so much (my own bed sounded way too good). However, I was ready to put in the final push to get through the last classes and learned all kinds of wonderful nerdy things about fonts and design. (more…)

DrupalCon Chicago, Part II

Wednesday, March 16th, 2011

Wednesday at DrupalCon was another full day of learning, and I attended extremely diverse classes from styling maps to talking about internet marketing. I had a few “ah ha!” moments, which are always a treat at these events. (more…)

DrupalCon Chicago, Part I

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

Last week I had the priviledge of attending DrupalCon Chicago, a nearly week long conference dedicated to my favorite CMS, Drupal (it’s what I use the most to build websites, and since I’ve only been using it for a little over two years I still have a ton to learn). I went with U of L web guys Trevor and Wesley. I have a lot of photos I want to post, so I’ll be breaking this into three blogs over the next few days. (more…)

Disneyland for Christmas

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

Each time I go to Disneyland, I intend to blog my favorite photos but never get around to it… well, no more! This time around it was a challenge to find photos of things I have never taken there before, and with a few new Christmas elements and special touches around the park (along with some inclement weather), the task was much easier than I expected! Even though it rained quite a bit, it was nice to get away from the snow for a week and have a break :) (more…)

Drupal Camp Alberta 2010

Wednesday, September 15th, 2010

Because I design websites in addition to doing photography, I sometimes go to really nerdy conferences too! The guys at Redwall organized this year’s Drupal Camp Alberta, which was held at the University of Calgary over two days this past weekend. They had some really great speakers this time around and I learned a ton, plus had a great time with everyone. Not all nerds lack social skills :)

There are more photos after the jump. (more…)
