The Created Image, Vol.02

This July we hosted the second Created Image conference here in Vancouver. This time I was joined by Steve Simon and Piet van Den Eynde for this intense photography weekend. Over two days we talked about making compelling photographs – from learning to see and honing the skills that have nothing to do with the camera and everything to do with making images, to the power of visual storytelling, and the digital darkroom. What we packed into these two days of education was enough to stretch even the largest brains and hearts.  And knowing that not everyone can afford the time or money to travel for an event like this, we filmed it, and after months of editing, we’ve cut it down to just over 12 hours of great content from three people who live and breathe this craft.

“The Created Image was a liberating experience, allowing me approach my photography from a new perspective.” – Dana Thomas

“A must-watch for those who love photography; inspirational as well as informational.” – Helen Dang

“The Created Image is a great way to rekindle that creative spirit – for an amateur, I found it a great way to break away from the routine, re-light that creative fire and to ask yourself what you want to achieve next.” – Chris Young

“As much as I was continuously inspired by the words and images presented, I felt this insatiable need to get out and photograph all the ideas that were emerging as a result of the workshop.” – Amy Brathwaite

Study the Masters: Elliott Erwitt

USA, California, 1955 USA. 2000.New York city. “It’s about reacting to what you see, hopefully without preconception. You can find pictures anywhere. It’s simply a matter of noticing things and organizing them. You just have to care about what’s around you and have a concern with humanity and the human comedy.” – Elliott Erwitt Elliott […]

Starting with Filters

Banff National Park, Canada, 2014. I used both a full and graduated ND for this. When I first started making photographs, optical filters (the ones you put on the front of the lens, as opposed to software filters) were common. You’d screw them to the front of the lens and it was all pretty simple. […]

Win My Tripod

Me and one of my tripods in Antarctica. You will be getting a non-licked version. I have too many tripods. I know, I know, first-world problems. But my problem is your opportunity because we thought we could either throw one of these $1,200 Gitzos in the garbage (totally kidding), OR, we could give one away. […]
