No need for sorry +Tisha Craw  . No biggie to me at all what's done in camera or in post. Whatever facilitates telling your story. Just letting you know since you touched on the subject. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

A few weeks ago I instructed at The IRIS Photographic Society of Alberta “Fun with Cameras” workshop at the Chartwell Wild Rose retirement facility in Edmonton. We put cameras in the hands of the seniors there and helped them to creatively express their world in photographs. If you go to the link below you’ll see some behind the scenes photos of me working with one of the residents and a gallery of photographs which the seniors created at the workshop. Photography is fun for all ages.

Wilcox Pass is one of my favourite hikes in the Canadian Rockies. It's a little slice of awesome. I can't wait to return there this year. Anybody up for a hike?

No solid plans yet +Branimir Gjetvaj . I hope to visit again sometime in the summer and then again when the colours explode up on the plateau in the Fall.

Last Saturday morning I met up with +Hiroaki Kobayashi  for a shoot at the Castle Mountain bridge in Banff National Park. We didn't get much colour for sunrise but some telephoto work capturing the character of the iconic mountain veiled in clouds and good conversation with Hiro made for a fun morning in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. As we were packing up to leave, the light on a range on the other side of the highway caught my eye. I love how the giant mountains reveal pieces of their character as the light changes throughout the day.

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of shooting corporate headshots for 16 employees of the Westin hotel in Edmonton. The friendliness and professionalism of everyone involved in the shoot made my job easy. A company’s greatest asset is its people. The Westin hotel in Edmonton has the excellent reputation it does for superior service because of its people. Here are a few sample portraits from the session…

This link was the spark for some fun discussion with my kids this morning at breakfast... They thought the album covers placed over the actual locations were cool but comments like "yeah I've heard of that band but don't know their music" leads me to think we have some work to do in this house. At least my kids knew RUSH's Moving Pictures album cover and don't have to hand in their passports!

My son was recently diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. It's been tough but with the wonderful help of the great CF clinic team at the Stollery Children's Hospital, our family and friends, we are accepting, adapting and moving forward.

Our family will be participating in the Great Strides walk on May 25. The Great Strides walk is Cystic Fibrosis Canada’s largest national fundraising event. If you can spare a few dollars please consider donating to our team, named Liam's Loonies, at the link below so that wonderful people doing great work every day in CF research can breath life into the future and find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis. Thank you so much.
