Seeing twice

…or more, to make better images Lacking a formal education in photography, I am currently living vicariously through my sister’s experience of taking a photography course at her local college. I feel that I have a good understanding of the fundamentals of photography. However, I have...

Still life

Studio time with the Fujifilm GFX 50S   It all started with a bunch of flowers and a little spare time. During a work break over the holidays, I found myself with a little extra time and a beautiful bunch of flowers. This proved to be the perfect...

Broughton Archipelago

A different kind of light Work. It’s interesting. One day I might be making a portrait, the next I might be shooting inside a bio-waste facility (really!). Often, it takes me to beautiful corners of the province that I might otherwise not see. Last week, I drove...

Interior space

Architectural observations of a heritage courthouse While my job as photographer for the provincial government entails lots and lots of event photography, it also throws up some other interesting opportunities. Recently, I was asked to document the interior of a heritage building in Victoria. The...

Up Close

  A little “action” photography with the Fujinon XF100-400mm lens In a great departure from what I normally shoot and what equipment I normally use, I recently made some photos at two local waterborne races. Fujifilm Canada has graciously loaned me an XF100-400mm lens to use next...

It ain’t too heavy…

Budget time

Working with the GFX 50S Government photography is back in full swing after a Winter break. One of the markers of a new legislative session is the announcement of a budget by the sitting government. I can’t remember how many of these events I have documented....

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...
