I was having some fun in Photoshop last night, and decided to go a little gritty with the processing of Chloe and her Mad-Hatter character we shot last weekend.  I think she did an amazing job with her quirky expression in this shot and it really sells the Mad Hatter personality we’ve come to know from Alice in Wonderland.

We had another successful exhibit at the annual Calgary Maker Faire with a few hundred people stopping by to play with some long exposure photography and light painting at our booth. Once again we had our friend and MakeFashion model +Millie Jayne stop by to play with us...this time she brought one of Matt Laprairie's designs along to see what we could capture. What do you think?

Hi all, I'm Jeff and here's a little bit about me...

What circles will I fit into? 

Photography - portraiture, studio, events, landscapes, city & urban, HDR, skydive, martial arts, photo walks

Canada - Alberta & Nova Scotia

Sports - Skydive, Taekwondo

What do I do for a living?

I pay most of the bills by working as a Systems Analyst & Middleware Administrator. My day varies from selecting, installing, configuring, deploying and troubleshooting various computer applications and file transfer processes for use by business teams in a corporate setting…oh yeah it also involves drinking a lot of coffee :-)

What do I do for fun?  

A lot of my free time is spent with my wife and teenage daughter.  They’re awesome and they keep me on track in my crazy life. Speaking of my daughter...she's fundraising for her Summer Band Tour.  Click here to help with a donation to her fund

I fill up a big chunk of my off hours by taking pictures.  I enjoy shooting pretty much anything and like to challenge myself with styles and techniques that I haven’t tried before.  My favorite things to shoot are people & portraits. 

I actively participate in the Selfy Sunday Project here on G+ curated by Jeff Smith, and I also enjoy taking part in the Photography Scavenger Hunts organized by Chrysta Rae.  If you do nothing else on Google+ introduce yourself to these two people and try these'll grow as a photographer and meet some excellent people in the process. 

I do offer photography services in Calgary, AB, so if you're interested in a unique portrait let me know.  Some of my work can be seen at and of course here on Google+.

Anyway, I’ve rambled on enough.  If you want to know more, feel free to ask.  Otherwise, expect to see content from me mostly related to Photography with the odd piece of randomness that interests me.  I look forward to meeting you…

I have had the honor of knowing Master Lau and Master Kim since 1999 and highly recommend them and their programs at the Calgary Taekwondo Academy. Having trained with them first hand and witnessed their dedication to the martial arts, I can say with confidence that new students will have a positive experience from which to develop a solid base of knowledge, and returning students will be challenged to excel and refine their skills. It is great to see the continued success of the Calgary Taekwondo Academy, and I wish them all the best in the future! I look forward to training with you again soon. ~ Master Jeff McDonald
