#505 Executive Portraits

I have been a little negligent showing some current work!

Recently, we shot a whole office of executives and support staff to promote their business. The session went well.

A peculiar thing happened: while setting up I found that two of the 12 staff had shot a hole-in-one. I was amazed! That’s 16% of the whole office – far higher than average. I was dealing with an exceptional group!

#504 Assignment Spotlight

Coming soon – some recent fun with executive portraits!

I am taking some quiet time over the weekend to charge the batteries. With the Preston Project, assignments, students, etc. I need a quiet weekend. Family (and clients) appreciate it.

#503 Student Success

I saw some work of Nathalie MadoreProProgram graduate who took many of our photo courses over her year. I was so impressed with her progress I asked her to share some photos and her experience for the blog.

Nathalie contacted me in late winter 2009 about the ProProgram and started with some basic skills and basic photos. She worked hard and her photos developed very nicely as did her business sense.

Read her take on her recent work at the Quebec Games or jeux du Québec.

It has been a great experience so far to shoot pictures for the e-magazine SDV*mag. Les jeux du Québec is a provincial competition every year and Gatineau is the host city this year.

I received a media pass through SDV and I am enjoying every minute of the games… even if the days starts very early and finish late at night. During the day I shoot at different locations and download, post process and write a small article for the magazine.

I am developing a new way to present sport based on my vision. Being a sport person helps me – I know what to look for. I have also met lots of contacts that help me get better shots. So far I love my experience and would do it again. I cover the event  until Friday then REST!


Nice work Nat!

#502 Toronto Photography Marathon

Sunday morning and we were half listening to CBC radio

…And we heard about the Toronto Photography Marathon.
It’s pretty fun – 12 exposures, only, on 12 themes.

12 only?
Yep. The way to keep you honest is the 12 exposures are on one roll of 12 exposure film.

Yep, a mistake counts.

I am a big fan of film. Of course I shoot digitally for clients that need it. We ran a prototype film course last weekend – stay tuned next summer for a film photo adventure.
