The Glorious Sons in Toronto

I got to be a total fanboy last November when I saw The Glorious Sons play the Scotiabank Area in Toronto. It was my first time seeing them live and it was their largest headlining show to date. Win-Win. TGS put on a fabulous live show, playing tracks from their previous three albums and some unreleased gems too. A couple…

Downtown Toronto Photowalk

I took a rare but brief moment and treated myself to a live concert. I went to see The Glorious Sons play the Scotiabank Arena (aka the ACC) in Toronto back in November. I took a few photos of the show from my seat and I’ll post those in the next blog. But before the show, I spent a (really…

Perth Road Touring 02

It’s another weird day here today in Eastern Ontario. It’s like five degrees and the sun is trying to peak out of the clouds to give us some of that wonderful Vitamin D that we all crave during the winter. Yet, the school buses were cancelled (2nd day in a row) because of “treacherous” driving conditions this morning. I guess…

This is Forty

I cannot fathom how I’ve gone three months not writing single word or posting s single piece of work on this blog. It’s not like I haven’t been shooting, just not a lot of art was being produced. I’ve shot a bunch of family snapshots, which I’m glad I did but nothing that should (or will) be posted here. No…

Boldt Castle 1000 Island Cruise

Last year Dana and I really wanted to take the 1000 Island Cruise from Gananoque to Boldt Castle and back. We thought it would be a wonderful adventure for us to do as a family, especially in the Autumn when the leaves were changing colours. With everything that happened with moving into…

One Year Without Him

It’s been one year to the day that we lost Gord Downie. He was Canada’s Poet. The Tom Thompson of the Music world. Lead singer in the greatest rock band, The Tragically Hip. My love for the Hip’s music spans most of my teen and adult years to date (and for anyone keeping score – that’s a lot of time!). Gord…

Ninth Concession ICM 02

Another trip down the Ninth Concession just outside of Westport Ontario yielded some amazing new pieces of art. I love using the Intentional Camera Movement (ICM) technique along side a fogged lens, some double (and triple) exposures, and a lot of luck, to create something unique (at least to my eye)…

Foley Mountain Before the Storm

Standing on Foley Mountain watching a storm approach Westport was a sight to be seen. The heavy rain clouds I saw approach Bedford Mills earlier in the afternoon led me to believe there was a system of storms coming towards the area. While others might have said: “good time to hunker down and hide away…

Stella & Dot

My wife Dana has been my muse since the day I met her. I mean really, isn’t it every photographer’s dream to have a subject as beautiful as her to photograph? We sometimes joke that I’m her “Instagram Husband” but it truly isn’t to that extreme. Plus, Dana’s pretty good at finding mirrors to shoot into…
