February 2008, Mongolia. This is one in a series of shots of this little boy that I return to over and over again. He packed more energy and personality into his little frame than any child I’ve met, and I’ve met many, many children. He had a look in his eyes from the moment we started that said “put your …

January 2007, Nizzamudin, Delhi, INDIA This is one of the first images I shot in what has come to be my favourite countries. India is, simply, an astonishing place. This is the shrine at Nizzamudin, a Suffi place of worship and one of the more magical places I’ve ever been. It’s a place where you can easily lose time and …

Jodhpur, India. January 2006 Jodhpur is known as “the blue city” for the ubiquitous blue walls. The walls, predominantly washed with various shades of cobalt blue in the old city, lend Jodhpur a fairy-tale feel and the back alleys are a riot of blues, greens, and ambers. They are also home to an astonishing density of bicycles and scooters, which, …

Kathmandu, 2007. This image is a result of pure dumb luck, as I am beginning to suspect the bulk of my images are. I was wandering the back alleys of Bhoda, just on the outskirts of Kathmandu, it was early morning, 6:30am, and the promised rainy season had just shown up. Truth be told I was in a funk – …

Agra, INDIA. January 2007. I shot this image at the Taj Mahal. It’s one of several hundred I shot there and one of the only ones I like. Shooting an icon like the Taj Mahal is tough. Shooting any icon is difficult, but the building reputed to be the “most photographed building in the world” is even harder. It’s easy …

I shot this image on my first assignment for World Vision Canada. It hangs large on my office wall and reminds me of a time in my life that will remain a peak in my memory forever. It was shot in Malawi after three days of travelling just to get where I was going. It was my second trip to …

Varanasi, India, January 2007 This is one of my favourite images. It was taken on a day filled with frustration and in the middle of that day this moment of serenity and joy was injected. Varanasi is one of the holiest cities in India. It sits on the banks of the river Ganges, a holy river choked with polution, decay, …

Ecuador – February 2007. We were staying in Riobamba, spending most of our time somewhere between 12 and 14 thousand feet in altitude. At this altitude the sun burns you even when it’s out of sight for days at a time. On the other side of this image is a bald, sunburned, photographer looking like a burn victim with leprosy. …

I like my images to speak for themselves, but there are times I wish I could say more, and judging by the emails I get asking for details about this image or that, there’s a few nutters out there that are willingly asking me to give them my thoughts and opinions. So be it. Introducing Without The Frame – The …
