English Bay, 2012.

Back in Vancouver now, and living at the Sylvia Hotel on English Bay while waiting to move into a great little live/work loft in Yaletown on March 15th. After long detours home on snow-choked BC roads, Vancouver welcomed me back with open arms on March 5th – cherry blossoms beginning to bloom, sunshine (short-lived, but welcoming), and enthusiastic welcomes from staff at old haunts and coffee shops. After a few days of frantic running around, the Jeep is licensed for B.C, and so am I. I have lease papers and utilities and within a month will have – I hope – all the legit paperwork to show to the folks at the border. Until then I’m cooling my heals and arranging endless furniture delivery. My exodus last year was planned to give me a clean slate on my eventual return, so I’ve not even got so much as a bed until the Swedish Mafia (IKEA) drops it off on moving day.

Anyways, it’s been slow around these here parts but as soon as I move in, I’ll give you a tour of the new Pixelated Image Galactic HQ, and then I’m off to Vancouver Island for a week or so to explore and photograph and hang out and scheme with Corwin, my manager and best friend.

In the mean time, we are launching my next eBook, Forget Mugshot, 10 Steps to Better Portraits, on March 13th. I know I tell you I am excited about every book we release, and that’s mostly because I’m easily excitable and tend to only do things I am excited about, but this time I’m extra excited. I think it’s a really solid book. It’s 35 pages of “if I could tell you only 10 things to make your people photography stronger, what would those ten things be?” There are Portrait Profiles and Creative Exercises in there too. Remember when I said we were moving from pounding out our vision and beginning to talk about how we express that vision/intent? This is part of that logical, and needed, shift. Tune in on the 13th for the usual discounts. Or better yet, join the Craft & Vision Community and get 12 books a year, full-time discounts, and access to the blog and the monthly podcasts. This coming month Matt Brandon and I will be discussing portraits and people photography and elaborating on ideas found in the book.

March Desktop Wallpapers

Emerald Lake, Yoho National Park, 2012 Two desktop wallpapers for you this month. My indecision is your gain. Click either image above to get the full-resolution file – both of them are 2560 x 1600. Seriously, this might just be my new favourite place. Amazing accomodations, real fireplaces, great food, and really reasonable rates with […]

Emerald Lake.

There may, or may not, be a hot tub here at Emerald Lake Lodge. A huge 16-person hot-tub. Also, there may or may not be a fermented beverage in the flask (thank you, Dave Delnea). Flask by Filson. Photograph, and mad iPhone skills, by Cynthia Brooke Haynes. Hat by Patagonia.

Almost Home

Arrived last night to one of the most amazing places I’ve ever been. Now I know I’m prone to hyperbole. Hell, I might exaggerate more than anyone on the planet, but this time it’s the honest truth. Emerald Lake Lodge in Yoho National Park. If you know where Banff or Lake Louise are, just head […]

Last Postcards from Nova Scotia

Early morning. Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia I’m sitting in a roadside motel that redefines mediocre, just outside Sault Sainte Marie, Ontario. Since I left my family’s home on February 11, I’ve put 6500 kilometers on the Jeep, though I truly thought those kilometers would by now have me well down the eastern seaboard of the […]
