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…

…it’s my Fujifilm X-H1 review With apologies to all of you who would rather not be reminded of the Holies’ 1969 hit, the road is long, with many a winding turn. Which is how I am feeling about the new, Fujifilm X-H1. Bigger and better I recently opted...

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...

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...

f/2 @ night

A little time with the Fujinon XF35mm f/2 lens   Busy. Shooting lots. Just not for myself. No complaints. Just noticing. So, I took advantage of a few, free hours and a dry evening in Vancouver to practise a little “seeing” with my new XF35mm f/2 lens. Until next...

Long week, strong light

A high-contrast look between events Last week in Vancouver, I lost count of the number of events I shot. In between work photos, whether inside or out, I glimpsed interesting light. Always worth looking for these moments, as they tend to keep me motivated and...
