Coming in September I’ll be exhibiting works from my Watershed & Sunstreaks Collections at La Fab in Old Chelsea, Quebec.
The Watershed project started 14 years ago as my dear old dog and I started exploring the little creek behind our home.
That turned into an 18 km (so far) exploration of a traditional watershed in Chelsea and Gatineau Park with medium and large format photography. It’s been an amazing adventure seeing how the waterway changes over the years.
Watershed – Black & White One-of-a-Kind Originals – Straight from the camera. 2013
My latest project started with a home made 8×10 camera and tweaking a 170 year old art process that’s not supposed to involve a camera. The original, one-of-a-kinds depict the sun as it streaks across the sky.
Kingsmere Lake SunStreak – the blue line is the path of the sun. The gaps? Cloudy periods… One-of-a-kind originals – Straight from the camera
The Big Camera
Some of each project is captured using a very large, plywood camera, built by hand. The camera produces originals straight from the camera. Unlike traditional photography there is only one final piece of art available with each exposure.

September 18 to October 5, 2014
It’s harder than you’d imagine. A whole month of shooting within 452.29 square feet will stump even the most creative photographer. And that was the point.
We offered creative catalysts and ideas to bust through blocks interfering with their creative potential.
And their month’s efforts made me smile. Sounds like it made them smile, too: “I must say that when I first heard your challenge for this month I just went brain dead. I live 22 stories up in a building with a 6ft wide balcony and I wasn’t sure what I was going to do. But I surprised myself once I got started…”
One of the finest annual photo events comes to Ottawa again starting next Friday, July 25th, 2014:
World Press Photo Exhibition at the Canadian War Museum
The World Press Photo Exhibition features the finest press photography from around the world. Subjects include:
• some lovely stories we never hear about
• … and some that make me cry
Last month I presented our Online Photo Members the challenge of photographing water. We presented some technical tips and a broad suggestion of what was possible within the realm of water photography.
“It is an amazing program and I have learned so much from it and from you.”
“I’ve lost my photo passion!”
I hear many photographers that burn out creatively.
There are many remedies.
One is to look for inspiration.
In this month’s Exposed! Photo Newsletter we look at our reader’s new suggestions for inspiration from the web. A big thanks to our readers for continuing to send links that inspire and engage, creatively.
