When I was in Seattle several weeks ago I spent an evening with the good folks at Blackrapid, makers of the R-strap. They plied me with local beer, sat me down on the couch and made me play twenty-questions. This is that interview, in 5 parts. You won’t be able to hear the questions really well, there were some sound …

I Use APC

In Just For Fun, News & Stuff by David10 Comments

Many of you know how much I love working in, and with, the photographic community. Several months ago the fine folks at Artistic Photo Canvas connected with me about being featured in their new I USE APC ads, and after coercing my buddy Dave Delnea to come to Vancouver’s Chinatown one evening to shoot some images, those ads are now …

I’ve been home from India for a whole day now, and leave for Vegas tomorrow morning. Can’t imagine a more bizarre cultural shift than going from peaceful Ladakh to the Las Vegas strip. So, this one’s a hodge-podge of stuff to accompany the release of the October Wallpaper (see post below). Ladakh was, at it always is, amazing. Weather was …

Seeing The Light

In Books, News & Stuff, Resources by David7 Comments

I’m a voracious reader, it’s one of the ways I learn best, and eBooks seem to be a great bridge between the information found online for free and the $40 price-tag of a print book. There’s a place for all of those. A month or two I directed you to Mitchell Kanashkevitch’s ebook about post-processing. It was, and still is, …

Labour Day

In News & Stuff by David4 Comments

A happy Labour Day to you. I left you on your own last Friday, victims of my forgetfulness. I was in line at the border heading down to Seattle on Friday when I suddenly remembered I’d forgotten to blog. D’oh! The images above are just a couple snaps from the event at Studio-R, the HQ for Blackrapid, makers of the …

Monday Miscellanea

In News & Stuff by David9 Comments

Hi folks. I hope you had a great weekend. Been a spectacularily sunny one here, the last glorious throes of summer, I suppose. It’s Monday and I’m out climbing Black Tusk in Garibaldi Park here in British Columbia. (Actually it’s Sunday and I’m writing this ahead of time, absolutely pumped about a day in the mountains tomorrow). So, a round …
