The White Birch

We have an amazing White Birch on our property that has some beautiful layers and textures that I’ve completely enjoyed photographing. In the winter, the white on white really makes the lines in the bark pop. However, in the springtime, when there is just that little bit…

Bedford Mills Pond Textures

I know I’m tempting fate. I get it, it’s the last thing that you want me to do at this point but we are safely into the month of June so I’m hoping that by posting these photographs, I’m not going to be calling on some freak snowstorm to happen to us. Stranger things have…

Exploring Bedford Mills

Oliver and I enjoyed an afternoon of exploring Bedford Mills. Lots of great trees and hills to climb; textures and layers to see; and a great afternoon to take in. We saw a snake (cool) and a beaver (doubly cool) on our little hike. The Earth was still that burnt orange…

Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada

My Mom turned seventy. As much as I don’t want to admit my parents are getting older (because it only increases my chances of getting older as well), it’s something that I’ve learned over the past few years to come to terms with. I think I’ve been able to do this because my Mom…

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…

Swans of Loon Lake 03

This is it. This is the one. After many (unsuccessful) attempts at documenting the “bird conference” that the swans were attending on Loon Lake every day this past winter, I finally made some photographs I’m happy with. It was a brisk, misty morning and there were about 25 swans clumped…

Gumdrop Tree

As I continue to work my way through my archives of blog posts I didn’t get to post during the winter (don’t hate), more and more wintery scenes are popping up. Here in Eastern Ontario, it has finally changed to Spring. As I look out my window today, the birds are playing and singing delightfully…

On Being A Model

Yesterday I posted about always trying to better myself as a photographer. If you are interested, you can read the post (and see the images I made with my lovely wife) by viewing yesterday’s post. Part of bettering myself requires me to understand how a subject feels in front of my camera…
