SarapYYC Event / Filipino Food Photography in Calgary

One of my favourite things to shoot is food photography.  I see and handle food photography like I would a miniature landscape.  With a landscape in nature it’s pretty hard to move a mountain, tree or river to get the shot you want.  Moving a plate, fork or knife is effortless in comparison.  Waiting for […]

100 Years 100 Faces of the Stampede | Day 1

When I first thought up this crazy project it took me a few days to decide if I really wanted to do it.  It would involve me going to the Stampede almost every day for ten days.  Each of those days, instead of trying to win prizes on the midway, instead of going on thrilling […]


Hurricane Sandy Pictures | Landfall Photos by the Atlantic

Hurricane Sandy

One of the best places for photojournalism online is the Atlantic’s In Focus column with Alan Taylor.   I knew they would have lots of pictures of Hurricane Sandy devastation.  When Sandy hit New York last night I wanted to see the waves, flooding and devastation from the eyes of some great photojournalists. My hearts, thoughts […]
