So we’re now three months into the new year and you may be wondering when the content from Project:1867 is going to start appearing here on the blog. So I’m here to give you an update on how this project is going to work, where it’s at currently, and the way content is going to hit the Internet. The short answer regarding online content is you’re going to have to wait. I mean, by this point I have not shot a single frame for the project, and you know what that’s okay. Unlike the War of 1812 project the primary vehicle was the Internet andRead More →

Here we are again at the end of another year and what a year it was for me, personally! First and foremost I got married so my photography itself has changed along with my life. But don’t worry I’ll still be carting around a camera and writing about it and I have some great projects lined up for 2018! Project:1867 – Acts of Confederation A sequel if you will to my major undertaking of the Anglo-American War of 1812 which took place between 2012 and 2016. Project:1867 covers the turbulent time of Canada between the end of the war in 1815 and the Confederation ofRead More →

So we’re here with just over ten days left in 2016, and I haven’t yet provided you, my faithful readers, with an update on what’s going to happen in the new year here on the blog! Well, there are going to be a few changes, but don’t worry they’re all going to be good. First up there’s going to be no overarching year long project in 2017, nor will I be engaging in a major project. Because my life is going to change, if you haven’t realized from reading some of my posts over on 52Rolls I’m getting married in April! So most of myRead More →

Ah yes, the famous what’s up and coming for 2016 blog post. 2016 is going to be a year of beginnings and endings. And of course some continuances. On Endings… Finally after several years of work my on going War of 1812 project will be coming to an end, with the final locations marked and the written portions of the book completed and being edited it’s finally time to call the project quits. It’s been a wild ride with lots of going back, reworking, rephotographing, and expanding the project to encompass as much of the war I could cram into my head and my book.Read More →

Well anyone who has read this Blog or who knows me in person…knows I have a passion for several things. History, Military Reenacting, and Film Photography. A recent favourite image of mine, shot on Ilford HP5+ and developed myself in HC-110. So don’t mind me…I just had to spread the word that film is alive and is kicking ass. That’s right folks, film is far from dead, the grave is no longer in sight of this dearly loved medium. Because there just isn’t anything like film. Don’t worry, I’m not knocking digital, and it does have it’s place in my workflow, it’s just I preferRead More →

While we’re already one month into 2014 we’ve been working hard here at alexluyckx|photography to put together a whole new website. Our old site was designed and built all the way back in 2012, and while it served its purpose, the big thing on the web is change, always change, fresh new content. So here’s a break down of what’s new! So what’s new at alexluyckx.com?? Simplified Navigation Services, Portfolios, Projects, Prints (get to that later), the Journal (Blog) are now all at the top next to the logo, the five main reasons I have my site, making it easier to move between these sections.Read More →

Well it is getting to that time of the year where I lay out to you, my faithful readers what is going to be happening photographically with me over the next calendar year and update you on the ongoing projects. My 52-Roll project for 2013 has been a stunning success, and working with other faithful 52-rollers over on 52rolls.net has been a great time, seeing a little community built up over the course of the year that will continue into one of 2014’s project. The War of 1812 Project, now titled “A Peace Forged in Fire & Blood” continues on and enters into the finalRead More →

With the end of the year upon us, I figured it would be good to start announcing what’s up and coming for me in 2013. Project:1812 continues to move on, with most of the Niagara Region covered this year, I’m switching focus through the winter of 2013 to documenting the campaigns in the western areas of Toronto, Forts Malden, Mackinaw, St. Joseph, and the battles surrounding them, also Port Dover, and Backus Mills. Hopefully in the summer and fall I’ll be able to get out covering some of the Eastern battle sites and fortifications along the St. Lawrence. So this project continues. But the bigRead More →

Sadly, all the old posts are long gone. The server that they were on crashed last night, not to be revived. So sadly I lost all my previous posts here. But never fear! I will continue posting here and will get around to posting the Mastering the Basics Tutorials since they were a popular item, with some tweeks and changes done to them as I retype. Until then. I shall leave you be!Read More →
