Foggy morning, Assiniboine Park, Winnipeg


Foggy morning in Assiniboine Park, definitely one of my favourite times to shoot, and one that inspires the creation of black and white images.


Still deciding on this one, may leave the colour version intact.


Duck Pond at night, Assiniboine Park


I’ve been making an effort to concentrate on photographing my own city and province after a few years of neglecting some of the great spots available.  The plan is to eventually release a book of Winnipeg or Manitoba images.  This is the recently redesigned Duck Pond in Assiniboine Park at night.  Soon to be a frozen ice skating surface.

Scrap metal Recycling, Thunder Bay


Scrap metal recycling in Thunder Bay, Ontario.  Came across this on a recent road trip and the bonus was it was wide open next to a road.  No trespassing or fence climbing required, which I try to avoid of course.

Quick draw photography



This is one of those fleeting moment shots it can pay to be ready for.  If your fortunate to have a camera with custom presets like the Canon 5D mark lll or similiar you can program one of the 3 presets ready for action shots like this.  I really set it up for quick tracking images of my dogs, so 400-800 ISO, servo-tracking for focus, a wide open F-stop of 2.8 etc.  Your settings may vary of course, depending on lenses, personal preference etc.  But it can mean the difference of quickly changing from still single shot landscape mode to fast tracking action shots in a single click of the dial.  This was shot onboard a foggy ferry crossing of Lake Huron, Ontario.
