ECUADOR: Home.

wvc_equador_07_255_1

Home now from beautiful Ecuador and a week shooting for World Vision Canada. The images from these shots and the ones from Malawi and Democratic Republic of Congo that I shot late last year (go to PixelatedImage.com – there’s a gallery called World Vision: Africa where you can see those images and later this week you’ll see a new gallery – World Vision: Ecuador.) will be in this year’s Christmas Gift Catalogue – a project I urge you to support. It’s one thing to buy a guinea pig for a child in Africa, it’s another entirely once you meet them and see in them a gorgeous boy or girl – just like you and I were but better-looking – with hopes a dreams and a sense of humour and a story all their own. I’m going to get off my soap-box now. I keep it perilously close at hand, so start making plans to really give this year. Cause honestly, the way we do it here in North America isn’t really giving, it’s just redistributing the crap – a great trading, not a great giving. Ooops, soapbox. How’d I get up on this again?

The trip was amazing and I will be posting images shortly.

Lexar has agreed to let me begin a regular column on their site and while we’re still working out the details it will be much the same as the articles I regularily write – lessons learned on the road while on assignment – travel photography issues, thoughts on gear, some theory about working with kids and families, all the usual stuff that I usually unload on unsuspecting friends can now be frantically avoided by strangers as well. Keep an eye on Lexar.com

11 days until I head out again – this has been a busy season – this time to Ethiopia, Rwanda, and Uganda.

Updated 10:20am: I’ve posted a small gallery of selects on the portfolio site, look for the World Vision: Ecuador link.

Display Profiling and Calibration: Eye-One Display2

I finally got around to getting a hardware-based calibration tool. I’ve been using the calibration tools in Apple’s OSX knowing I needed to get a hardware based solution at some point. After looking through a barrage of mind-numbing articles about ICC and colour management and related mumbo-jumo I was about ready just to sacrifice a […]
