  • It’s May 4th, a day in which many people say, “May for fourth be with you”. (Star Wars reference.) Ironically in the camera world I get asked frequently by my Nikon friends, “So when are coming to the dark side?” (The dark side being Nikon; also a Star Wars reference.) Well, I’m both happy and sad to say that the day has finally arrived. Today I switched my entire camera system to Nikon. (mic drop)

    Bitter Sweet

    November 3, 2015
    Mohandas Gandhi once noted in a conversation with E. Stanley Jones, “Oh, I don’t reject Christ. I love Christ. It’s just that so many of you Christians are so unlike Christ. If Christians would really live according to the teachings of Christ, as found in the Bible, all of India would be Christian today.”

    Wonderland

    November 1, 2015

    Tonight, as I get ready to go to bed, I think of Morpheus’ words to Neo just before he entered The Matrix:

    This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill – the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill – you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.

    Off to India and Nepal!

    October 21, 2015
    In a matter of days, I will be heading off to India and Nepal with my good friend, Tom Ward. To be quite honest, I never envisioned myself visiting India or Nepal, but after God opened the door, it quickly made a lot of sense.
  • In planning out the day, I had originally hoped to shoot some elaborate panoramas. But as plans changed, it meant that the majority of my gear was still sitting back at the condo. I was left shooting in bright sunlight on a clear day with my Mark III and Canon 24-70 USM.  No tripod, no panoramic head, no polarizing filter, no ND filter, no 50mm and no 14mm wide angle.

  • As an avid photographer who loves shooting the aurora borealis (more commonly known in the northern hemisphere as the northern lights), I sometimes get asked for tips. Being in southwestern Ontario, I don’t have the advantage that many high-latitude sky watchers have, so when the northern lights are out, I want to make the most of it! To save everyone some time, I’ve compiled a summary of everything I’ve learned since I started shooting them back in 2001.

    Perspective (and why you need it)

    March 10, 2015

    On Monday evening, I posted a photo on Facebook. I want to take a few minutes to explain this photo and why I posted it. The photo is about perspective.

    Corey & Colleen

    July 4, 2013

    Back in 2001 when Carolyn and I joined West London Alliance Church, we jumped "both feet in" to Junior High Ministry. Along our path, we came across two young kids -- Corey Seabrook and Colleen Rempel.

    Over the last month, I had the opportunity to shoot their engagement and wedding photos. For those of you that know me, I don't usually shoot engagements or weddings, but I made the exception for Corey and Colleen. Below, you can see a few of my shots. I'll save the rest for them to post when they return from their honeymoon in Cuba.
