DL Wedding – Gazing

It’s nice when the Bride and Groom look at the camera. It’s something typical – shots like this are also fairly common, but they are still classics. I think it’s important to make sure that there are at least some photos of the couple gazing into each other’s eyes. That’s what it’s all …

DL Wedding – Accoutrements

Weddings are an interesting event to shoot due to the fact that you have to align your vision with that of the couple getting married.  Other than the typical photos, I think it pays to capture some of the small details.  Textures and colours can play an important part in …

Pamela Brennan – Blue

My good friend Pamela is a brilliant musician; both a gifted song writer and vocalist, she can move you more than you thought possible. So when she asked me to do her photos, I was very flattered and excited. Pamela is beautiful, has a great sense of humour, and is very creative. Working …

Street Corner

I was walking down Spadina Avenue in Toronto on a snowy day in January of 2004 when I came across this sign. It’s just a great example of how multicultural Toronto is. f/5.6 1/60 sec 200mm

Their Eyes Met

Another shot from visiting Carly and Evan. This happened shortly after Evan latched onto Carly’s chin. I shot with a fairly low shutter speed, taking advantage of the back-lighting. Sometimes I find that a silhouette can speak just as loudly as the light behind it. f/5.6 1/30 sec 200mm

Carly and Evan

My friends Mike and Carly had a little boy back in 2003. He was a cute little guy. One day we went over to visit and I brought my camera with me. I don’t particularly care for photos from department stores. I find them strangely unnatural; I dislike the propping up of babies …

Eternal Bond

We were celebrating our first anniversary in the same city that some friends of ours were getting married in. They invited us – unofficially – to attend their ceremony, which was a real treat. I had my camera with me, so I brought it along to the ceremony. Both sides of their …

Logan

Both of our cats were very sweet, but one of them was an occasional lunatic. Logan was prone to chasing his own tail, misjudging distances while leaping, and bonking his head off the window while trying to get the pigeons outside. Regal was one of the last words that I would use …

DrEye Idea

I composed this image for a class project. We basically had to compose an image and explain what we did and why we did it. I am very proud of this one, as I had put a lot of thought into it. For the full explanation click here. f/4.5 1/125 …

Ducking Prayers

This little girl looked up, not as focused on what the group was doing as her neighbours. It was October of 2002 in Kaua’I in Koke’e State Park. Her eyes speak of the innocence and beauty of youth. f/8 1/250 sec 300mm Why Contact 2006?
The short answer? Youth.

The Prayer

We came across a group of perfomers in Koke’e State Park back in October of 2002. Before they performed their musical ritual, these Hawai’ians engaged in what appeared to be a prayer. The amount of passion that arose from the speaker was inspiring. I wanted to do my best to …
