At The Lonely End Of The Rink

25 Nov

On Friday I was so pumped up about shooting at night after posting about it, I had to get out again.  Myself and a couple of other photographers got together and headed out.  We started at a park just south of the Danforth where, we stumbled on an empty rink, I thought of the lockout and the Tragically Hip song that inspired the title for this post.  From there we went downtown.  Here are a few frames.

Underpass Park – Toronto Development

23 Nov

I got out last weekend to do a bit of night shooting.  If you follow my blog, you know that Toronto at night is one of my favourite things to photograph.  Last week we got down to Underpass Park, part of the waterfront development plan here in Toronto.  If you get a chance, check it out either by day or nigh, it is a wonderful spot!

Keira Light Graffiti

3 Aug

I’ve really wanted to combine light graffiti with a model for quite some time now.  Keira and I connected through Model Mayhem and hit Graffiti Alley near Portland Ave.  She was patient with me as I tried to figure out exactly what I was doing and as the wind reeked havoc on my equipment.  There is room for improvement in technique but in the end we got some pretty good images.

Beautiful Bala Night And It’s Star Trails

21 Aug

Last week was family vacation week as we joined the in-law side of the family at “Uncle Ken’s Cottage” for the week. Insert in-law jokes here (most are applicable). It was a great time and I captured a number of great images, but most of my images are just for me and my family. I did, however, find the opportunity to sit on the dock and enjoy a cigar while capturing my first ever star trail image.

The Rise And Fall Of The Supermoon

21 Mar

So by now many of you have heard about and even seen a number of images of this past Saturday’s “Supermoon”

I decided that I was going to take a trek out to capture this rarity that would not exist again for another 20 years or so, however, it appears as though the best time to capture the grandeur of said supermoon is at moonrise.  Moonrise in my house is more commonly referred to as bedtime.

So after the kids were in bed, I packed up my gear and met up with a friend and we went down to the water to see what we could capture.  This is when we realized that photographing the moon with no foreground to contrast is, could get a little boring.  No fear though, the night was still perfect for shooting and the moon provided the opportunity to shoot some rather surreal long exposures.

I did get the one image of the moon, but I quickly found myself otherwise preoccupied.

More Toronto Night Shooting

4 Jan

Just in case I haven’t mentioned it before, I really like to get out at night to do some shooting!  Even when it’s really cold.  Last weekend, it was really cold.  Really, really cold.  But I went out anyway.

Jesse And Jo

15 Nov

So Last weekend I posted a tease of my session with Jesse and Jo and here is the follow up.  Jesse and Jo are an amazing couple who I have had the privilege of befriending and working alongside of.  They wanted to get out in the streets of the neighbourhood that they live in and love and do some of the things that they love to do, one of which, of course is a pizza date at Pizza Nova.  They also regularly grab their groceries at the Shoppers Drug Mart, but security interference kept us from getting any good images there.

Here are some of my favourites.

Jesse And Jo Sneak Peak

4 Nov

Hit the frigid streets of North York with Jesse And Jo last night, we got some really great images as they did some of the things they like to do in the neighbourhood they love.  Here’s a teaser:

I love Toronto At Night!

13 Jul

Last weekend, I took the opportunity to hit the streets of Toronto once again at night and take in a few shots.  I really love shooting Toronto at night, quite possibly just for the opportunities that it presents to leave the shutter open for extended periods of time, so once again, I took that opportunity.

Possibly my favourite part of the night was coming across the raccoon who was stuck in the lid of a dumpster, mr friend and I decided that we should help it get unstuck, but not before exploiting it’s struggles and capturing the images of pain and anguish. (what photojournalism).

Paul and I also took the opportunity to play with the flash and came out with a pretty cool one, not a bad profile pic.
