Every Summer the Ottawa architectural, design, and builder community rushes to put the finishing touches on their GOHBA Housing Design Awards submissions. Of course, without the heroic efforts of the interior and architectural photographers who capture the finished project, they’d never be outside of their own neighbourhood. I personally photographed several projects for the Awards […]

Bonkers, pictured, is a local watering hole in my Hintonburg neighbourhood. I posted this photo on Flickr yesterday, and this is a suggested crop of that image (thank you for your input folks!). The nice thing about this shot, for me, is that it was something I had pre-envisioned. I knew I wanted to take […]

I spent some time this week making arrangements and booking a lot of last minute portrait sessions and weddings, all of them based on referrals. It’s a great feeling to receive praise from your peers – praise coming in the form of recommendations: I can’t think of a better way to compliment a photographer than […]

I had a few minutes before my client showed up for a portrait shoot this past Sunday, but that didn’t mean I wasn’t looking for other photographic opportunities.While I don’t find the building particularly attractive, I was drawn to it’s lines and, in particular, their repetition.

Today is like the lull before a storm. A storm of pure AWESOME! Well maybe not a lull, Saturday is Ernesto’s bachelor party, as well, Brad from Wasted Photos will be in town and I hope to finally meet the man. Legend has is that just by standing near him, a man’s sexual potency will […]

Does anybody remember the Panda song by *Liam Lynch*? Right now my brain is making about as much sense as that song – I feel unwell.

So I came home yesterday to find a delightful message affixed to my door“We regret to inform you that your gas service has been suspended today” To be honest, I regret to BE disconnected. I always pay my bills, so I went to check out what was up. I had received a credit in January, […]
