Deep Woods Light Show

The absence of ambient light from the city gives one a fantastic view of the heavens. On a back-country trip into Kawartha Highlands Provincial Park, I captured a few images of the stars – a feat made a bit easier once the moon had left the scene. While I enjoy …

Night Sky Painting

Sometimes the moon can be your friend and sometimes it is not. In this case, it was definitely a perfect sidekick to capture this image. While my target was the stars, the light from the moon and the slow movement of the clouds conspired to make an improvement to what …

The Spirit of Dance

We spend so much time watching shows where people compete that it’s nice to see some cooperation. I loved this moment between these two young dancers – it’s part of the choreography, I’m sure, but the way they are looking at each other is simply too sweet for words.

Silvercreek Prospector 16

I love canoeing, and it has been a dream of mine to own one. There is a great canoe builder located outside of Acton, ON, who makes amazing watercraft. I saw this one a few weeks ago and finally took the plunge (so to speak). While I didn’t have time …

Duck Face

My daughter and I took our cameras out for a walk along the Humber River in Toronto (since the winter conditions had subsided). The wildlife was out in full force. The sun was bright and the sky was clear, but there was still some thin ice near parts of the …

Bacon Beau-Nut

I found a recipe for a hot glazed biscuit donut (AKA Bonut) from Alton Brown and have been enjoying it a fair bit. I have added a few modifications of my own, giving them a Canadian twist (maple whiskey in the glaze and bacon as a topping to add some contrast). …

Ring Around the Rosy Cheeks

I was shooting a school event that was a lot of fun. They had decided to have a glow-in-the-dark dance party complete with black lights and glow sticks. Something of a challenging thing to shoot, especially considering that flash photography is not always welcome. So, I decided to have some …

Hard Work

Near my house during this time of the year, the salmon make their run up the river. There are a number of weirs on the lower part of the Humber, and the intrepid fish have to “climb the ladders” to get to where they need to go. With the water …

Two-Tap

A fun shoot today at the Koffman Academy of Music and Dance. It’s always entertaining to wrangle a bunch of kids and get them to be serious about posing for photos. Really, it’s almost easier to let them be themselves and catch the magic as they subconsciously fall in line. …

Girl Power

I’m not one for typical sports team photos. With the sun setting in the background and the shadows at play, how could I resist? “Badass” is the message here, folks.
