This is a photo I shot sometime this past winter, I just found it randomly when I opened bridge. Since I haven’t posted anything in a while I thought I’d just put this one up. Erin Heather did the make up and the model is Christine from Angies Models in Ottawa.
Today was a good day to come home, had 2 packages waiting for me, one from Color Magazine and one from my friend Jennilee. Color sent me a t-shirt and a pair of Circa deck shoes which are damn comfy, and Jenni sent me these coming out soon Rodrigo tx 2′s that she designed. They look rad, I don’t think I will skate them.. at least not for the first month or two:
The weather is nice, the weather is nice! It went up to 20 this week, so I’ve been out skating and shooting. This was the first time out with my new Bronica, it was definitely nerve racking shooting film, I was too focused on the timing (which is slightly off) and the lighting (which could also be improved) to even notice the bad composition. Ah well, I was stoked just to get properly exposed slides back with fairly even lighting. Tomas did this wallie about 30 times for me, 24 times for my bronica and a few times for my digital.

So this is the side of High Park that I started my walk to the other side from, I was in good spirits at this point, and excited for a little walk through the park.. once i reached the other side, I was sweating, grumpy, and hungry.
So finally after owning a Holga for almost 3 years, I put it to use with my pocketwizards and some strobes, Aaron was warming up on this ledge with some tailslides so I snapped 3 photos with the Holga and some illford hp5 400 film. I figured my holga was around F8-F11 so I got my flashes firing somewhere in between that, and had at it. The best one unfortunately was a double exposure, from me forgetting to advance the film, so this is the second best.
Neil found this crack alley down near his house, it’s part of an abandoned building, I guess it’s the old loading dock. Neil wanted to shoot a photo, but I ended up shooting Charlie instead. Falling here was not really an option, I was standing in used needles and broken glass, backed up against a wall. I guess this is the type of trick that I either need a seq camera for, or I should learn to time it better.
Skateboard Village.com released their 2nd issue of their new magazine, which is available here: Spring 2007 in flash format, once again I have two photos in it. The dudes putting it together are doing a great job, and hopefully it starts to take off soon with more people checking it out each issue. Spread the word if you can.
This was just a random shot from June of 2005 that I took while we were walking around Quebec city. The 4 guys on the right make up Outnumbered, while the guy on the left is Dan aka the 5th member and roadie extraordinaire.
I booked the studio a while back and Nat wanted to see what it’s all about, it’s probably the last time I use the studio for a while, not because Nat was a bad model, but it’s summer and I’ve got better things to do than shoot inside all the time.. like skateboard. So Nat and I had some fun, as per usual, our serious poses eventually turned into lets flip my hair, which we did back in October or September at Alli’s house. I think this one turned out better.
So I got sent a link today by my friend Ben to the french MSN homepage, lo and behold, 2 of my photos are up on the site, I love when no permission is asked, makes getting paid that much easier. Invoice will be out in the mail tomorrow.
