New Work Posted
There’s some new work posted to my portfolios, representing some of my favourite photographs from the last couple months. Click either of the images above to be taken to my recent work from Kenya and Hokkaido, respectively. I love the new direction my work is taking, though I’m at a loss to say where it comes from. There is, I think, a common theme in the simplicity of the photographs, but I also think there’s something in the work that arises purely from my love of the places and people I’m photographing these days. Perhaps it’s a contentedness.
Off to the Rockies for week tomorrow morning. A road trip to and from the Persistent Vision seminar put on by Darwin Wiggett in Bragg Creek, just south of Calgary, Alberta. Friday and Sunday are sold out but there’s still a few seats left for the Saturday event. On Monday, March 18, I’ll be at The Camera Store in Calgary, signing books and saying hello. 11am to 1pm. I’d love to see you in either place.

I take each image through a final pass in Lightroom’s Develop module. Here are the questions I’m asking myself as I go through the panels. Is my monitor […]

We had an interesting conversation in Hokkaido one evening, and it stands out because when you put 15 photographers together for a meal, and there’s no shortage of drink, conversation tends to end up with everyone telling lies about how long they can hand-hold their long lens, or how Ansel Adams was a total hack. […]
Coming home from Hokkaido with 8000 images to edit should seem intimidating, but it isn’t. I got a couple requests from people to share my editing process, which hadn’t even occurred to me until I got them, because I’m pretty much done already. So then I went and told Twitter and Facebook I’d show people […]
I’m not one to pigeon-hole, but all the same, I’m no wildlife photographer. Of course I said that about landscapes three years ago as well, so what do I know? I’ve spent almost 2 weeks in Japan, mostly in Hokkaido, with birds and monkeys, often flopping around gracelessly and hip deep in snow, and almost […]
