Weekend wandering

GFX 50S and the Mamiya Sekor C 150mm f/3.5 lens I spent a few hours over the weekend with the fantastic Fujifilm GFX 50S and just one lens, the Mamiya 645 Sekor C 150mm f/3.5. Of the three Mamiya 645 lenses that I own, the 150mm...

Close to home

Found images in the Winter light Spent part of the weekend looking for interesting light. Didn’t find any. But I did see enough to want to capture a few images around the house and along the shore. Just seems to be the way it is this...

More slow photos

A few hours spent with the GFX 50S I took advantage of a few, rain-free hours the past two weekends to take out the Fujifilm GFX 50S for some tripod-based photography. I used two Fujinon GF lens on loan from Fujifilm Canada, the GF23mm f/4 and...

Behind the scenes

A few moments at a press conference Some images captured at a presser today. In the relatively small confines of the Reception Hall, I shoot with the XF16-55mm f/2.8 lens on the X-T2 and, today, the XF35 f/2 lens on my X-Pro2.  Acros-R film simulation...

Long week, strong light

One Wave

A gathering of pacific peoples I had the pleasure yesterday to photograph the tenth anniversary One Way Gathering, hosted by the Pacific Peoples’ Partnership in Victoria. This was a great opportunity to make portraits of a wonderfully diverse group of individuals, sharing culture and...

Marine details

Walking the docks of the inner harbour. Observing the light as it plays over surfaces. A thoroughly enjoyable way to spend an hour. Making images. NB: Images captured with the Fujifilm GFX 50S fronted with a GF63mm f/2.8 lens. Acros-R film simulation. ...

Portrait synthesis

GF110mm lens reflections and GFX follow up Over the past couple of months, I have integrated the new Fujifilm GFX 50S into my work photography. It has become my portrait camera of choice and I use it for large group photos. I still rely upon...

Elevated perspective

Sea planes and small cameras, a perfect match for aerial photography I have the good fortune, really good fortune, to travel by float (sea) plane on a regular basis between the provincial capital, Victoria, and Vancouver. My work takes me there, most often for...
