Thoughts and latest projects
Susan Holbrook asked me for an image for her new book, Throaty Wipes published by Coach House Books. Susan asked me if I had any images that might work with her title. It was a bit of a stretch but I thought of some images I made the summer before of my sister-in-laws livestock in Rocky Mountain House Alberta. Specifically this image of[…]
I was asked to travel from Vancouver to Victoria to photograph Premier Mike Harcourt for Saturday Night Magazine. When I arrived at the Premier’s office an aid showed me in and said that I could set up for the session. I was alone in his office for thirty minutes. After setting up I wandered around and noticed[…]
In any sport, art or venture I think there is a hope that it will not just survive but propagate. In terms of obscure sports I think of Bowling, Darts, Canadian football, Polo and Fencing. Curling seems to have been bumped from the “top 10 sports most probable to die” list. The twelve year old daughter of friends[…]
An Honest Portrait Original portrait: Svend Robinson When I began making commissioned portraits I was never asked if the subject could see the images before they were published. Model releases were not common. There was a sense of trust. The subject was most often a willing participant in the process. They gained free publicity, notoriety,[…]
Saturday: I realized there are an infinite number of variables in which ever endeavor you find pleasure and choose to get better at. Friday: Matt and I were mid way through a two hour drive to Kingston to shoot video for a Kingston Tourism campaign. Matt spoke of his recent leap into the art of fine[…]
I wanted to try to mimic natural light, the type of natural light I used to get shooting in warehouse spaces during my ten year Toronto tenure. I was lucky to have huge north light windows in my first Toronto studio. It gave me amazingly clear light like one of my idols Irving Penn had used[…]
I wanted to try capturing someone’s portrait that is not taken in a fraction of a second. I borrowed Aldo‘s camera that shoots HD video at 120 fps. I asked the models to stare at the camera and stay relatively still for 60 seconds, which results in a four minute video. It’s a bit slow[…]
I went with a friend to help and watch him work on a job capturing aerial footage with his drone. It was a beautiful day, fairly clear sky with light winds. We shot in three locations. Three things I learned about flying a drone: Location: Think of things like power lines, tree lines, bodies of[…]
Equipped with two expensive video cameras, and an iPhone 6 plus we shot this video meant to show the immense amount of work involved setting up for exams. The gym holds 960 people. Both desks and chairs and other items have to be transported from a warehouse and setup in one day. This year they[…]
I’ve been dipping my toes into the new world of 4K video. We shot recently at the Horticulture building at TD Place. We were shooting green screen video, and stills against a white background lit with strobe through a large softbox. The 4K video concerns were the size of the files and how the video[…]
