Homage

I had the pleasure of working with friend and frequent creative collaborator Jennifer Bettencourt this past weekend. In addition to being a talented model, Jennifer is also an accomplished fadista, or singer of Portuguese Fado music. The shoot was inspired by Fado legend Amália Rodrigues, a we were going for a fairly formal look, with some intensity.

Framing Trees

Back to Lethbridge Alberta: I love frames within a photograph, and the way these trees on either side framed the more distant view was very appealing to me when I saw it.

Two Arches

It was a very bright day in downtown Toronto today, and the low midwinter sun made for start,dramatic lighting. I loved how the sun was hitting the front arch in this space on the Esplanade.

The Silence of Snow and Ice

This image was taken in a park in Lethbridge, Alberta on a Sunday morning in my recent trip out west. The trees were covered in a frost from a combination of fog and very low temperatures. There was no wind, and the sky was softly overcast. The silence was lovely.

Banff 4: Black and White versus Colour

When I was in Banff in terms of film I was shooting black and white, not colour; the only colour images I shot were with my iPhone, so here is a comparison of almost the exact same image, one taken with my Rolleiflex, the other with my iPhone. I know colour is more popular these days, but there is still something about black and white that makes it my “mother tongue” as far as photography is concerned.
