I'm in a tent, getting dressed, on the banks of the Ottawa River. It's our first morning here and the kids are out with their mother, brushing their teeth and getting ready for a whirlwind day. On a whim I pick up my phone to check my emails — Something I never do; I can't stand this phone. Amongst the usual mess of spam there's a Facebook message from an old schoolmate, the kind of thing that's usually about cats or travel pics... T...

Professional Photographer of the Year 2012

Massive congratulations to +Derek Clark who's image taken on a FUJIFILM X100 has won 1st Place in the "News" category of the Professional Photographer Of The Year awards 2012.

"I didn’t have much expectation of winning Professional Photographer Of The Year, but as I was a finalist in the News category, I thought it was only right to go along and be a part of the awards night..."

I'm slightly overwhelmed as we make our way through the gallery. The work here is outstanding, everyone smiling, friendly... But I'm not used to this; the social rhythms, the conventions, the banter. I'm only intimate with shadows, with scenes stolen from the darkness of hidden corners. We move to the live auction hall upstairs and I watch the people roam, slowly, methodically. Something here reminds me of Antonioni's Blow Up but I'm not sure why...
