Hutchings Road ICM

There is a wonderful little road close to where we live and it has the most breathtaking (swampy) area I’ve ever seen. Lots of wild flowers, reeds, tall grass and shrubbery fill about 3 acres of land on the side of the road. It’s a tough place to stop to make photographs, as there is a blind corner that you…

Skyfire 01

At the end of my latest shooting session (click here for Tett House ICM 02), I stumbled upon creating some images of the bright sun through a heavily wooded area. When I used a slow shutter speed on my camera and a neutral density filter on my lens, I could move my camera every which way during the exposure…

County Road 36 Touring 01

I’ve made it one of my goals in moving out to Eastern Ontario to try and explore as much of the landscape that surrounds me as possible. It’s something I never really did living back in the Greater Toronto Area and I feel like it was a lost opportunity. As a photographer, and a creative artist, it’s my job…
