Coming off the last bicentennial reenactment in Canada and a trip to Texas looming next week I figured I needed something quick and dirty for Week 43 so I decided to give a little bit of still life a try with two of jewels of my working collection. A 1950 Leica IIIc and a 1969 Rolleiflex 2.8F all nicely posed with some APX25 and Ilford Delta 400, the film actually is for my Texas trip, the cameras will be staying home (As I have my Pentax 645 and Nikon F4 packed up for the trip). But it was the first time for me working withRead More →

Week Three is dedicated to my Dad and to Mary-Irene. Mary Irene I first met on twitter as one of the social media gals from the Eastman Kodak company, we met for lunch back in August when I was in Rochester and she was the first person outside of my circle of photography friends to hear about this project, she has since moved on to work for Toys R Us, so this is the perfect blend, her past job at Kodak (Tri-X), and her new job (Toys). The weather report was saying that the weekend was going to be dull and rainy, so I reallyRead More →

The second shoot from this past Saturday for Bethany Gilbert was more an ice queen motif, so the cold weather and the snow left on the ground was an added bonus for the shoot.

I once again had the honour of working with the very talented Sheridan student Bethany Gilbert for another portfolio shoot. This time working with Wedding makeup for a bride. The results were spectacular. I now realize what an amazing place Sheridan College’s SCAET building is to shoot in and work with strobist (off camera lighting using speedlights) techniques. The model, Christine was also wonderful to work with, she was a natural in front of the camera.

This past Saturday myself and fellow photographer Eric brought the model Melynda out to Georgetown’s abandoned Barber Mill. A location I’m rather familiar with having explored it on several occasions already. I’m rather pleased with the results, turning out some of my best model work to date (it can only go up from here, right?).
