Bungy!!!!!!!!!

If you are going to bungy jump for the first time in your life I figure it might as well be at the world home of bungy jumping - The Kawarau Bridge Bungy in Queenstown New Zealand! Yes that's me (orange jacket and all) starting the 43m jump.

Life is short - go for it!

Wayne Simpson Photography and I are excited about the upcoming launch of our Portrait Lighting Essentials workshop series. Registration for the August 16 workshop in Kitchener, Ontario, will open Monday February 23rd on Eventbrite (a link will be posted here on Monday). Space for the workshop will be limited to 12 people so that we have good instructors/participants and participants/models ratios. This will be hands-on workshop with the goal of expanding your technical skills and your creative vision in portrait photography.

We are also working out details for a Portrait Lighting Essentials workshop in Calgary. Yes Calgary area folk, Wayne Simpson is going to be back out West to teach some workshops. For the Calgary workshop we might have a model you've seen before in Wayne's work. Stay tuned!

"Consciously and unconsciously, an artist engaged in serious work is always raising or dealing with the question, 'What really matters?' " ~ Freeman Patterson

I had the pleasure of meeting Freeman and chatting with him lately. What a gentleman! What an artist!

Here's a photograph I made yesterday morning in Strathcona County...

I won't bore you with the details +Eric Fredine but I was asking myself the "why" question yesterday when I was looking over the various images from the shoot in Lightroom. There's a very personal story represented here in the subject and the composition which I wasn't consciously aware of when I was photographing. When free shooting I try and be in the moment and create guided by my mood and my gut. I try and not over think things. I try and get out of my own way so to speak. Of course sometimes there are subjects I am looking for or exercises I am looking to work through but for the most part I try and go with the flow. When reviewing the images after a shoot I often ask the "why this one?" question myself. Some days the forest reveals itself and other days there just aren't any answers. The answers to some questions just take more time.

Exciting portrait workshop announcements are in the works! I'm teaming up with Wayne Simpson Photography (http://www.wsimpsonphoto.com)  this summer to teach some lighting workshops. We're looking forward to sharing our knowledge of how to use lighting in creative portrait photography.

Now that we have our amazing venue confirmed, I can share that the first workshop will be in Kitchener, ON on August 16, 2015! Details to come in the next couple of weeks!

... and so now I come to journey's end. In a few hours I will board a plane for home and loved ones and so will end my six week trip and two week solo journey photographing New Zealand's South Island. It's been an incredible experience.

Years thinking about it
Months planning it
Weeks traveling beautiful NZ (and AUS)
And now the rest of a lifetime to fondly remember all the great experiences.

I look forward in the months ahead to sharing the work created.

Kia ora New Zealand.

An episode of Dr. Who ("The Impossible Astronaut") was filmed on the shore of Lake Powell. I'm a big fan of the Dr..... who says things like this...

It's Family Day Holiday here in Alberta today (also in Saskatchewan and Ontario). I just love the idea of family as the reason for a holiday. It's not a day dedicated to some famous dead guy or political event. It's a day about family.

This photograph is a few years old but it shows the love in this family and some of the characters in this house...
