Tonight I went out to shoot some photos and video for another friend’s band, interestingly named “Beelzeboptet”, which played at Annex Live. They are a very accomplished jazz trio, with stand-up bass (Bill Norman), electric guitar (Greg Haddow), and drums (Dan Holowachuk). I was only able to stay for the first set and grab a few photos, so here they are.Read More
I went down into Kensington Market (Waterfalls Tapas Bar & Grill) last night to watch one of my favourite blues bands (Wayne Cass Blues Band aka Left 4 Dead), as they were trying out a new singer (Ally Jed). I only caught the last set, in which they performed extended versions of “Down By The River”, “I Put A Spell On You”, “Come Together”, and “The Weight”. Ally was quite good, and she has a fantastic stage presence… Can I use the word “Foxy”?
As always, the Wayne Cass Blues Band put on a great show.Read More
I ventured over to Christie Pits park today to observer the first DougieBall event, hosted of course by Doug Gilmour himself. The event was well presented, and there sure were enough NHL players on hand (past and present) to entertain the audience. I couldn’t stick around for the whole game due to work, but I can’t wait for next year’s event.
Participants included this year: Doug Gilmour, Shayne Corson, Tie Domi, Darcy Tucker, Eric Lindros, Steve Thomas, and musical guests (not being musical), Jim Cuddy and Barney Bentall, to mention just a few.

I decided to help out a friend in need by taking photos of her landscaping projects this summer. We toured a few of the locations to get some nice images of what had been created, with the idea of adding the images to her online portfolio.Read More
Another year passes, and I find myself again up in Parry Sound photographing the World Enduro races. This was the second year in a row there, and hopefully one of many more to come in the future. I spent three days combing the hills around the timed events trying to find niches for good photographs, and trying to capture the essence of what a WEC race is all about. Did I succeed?Read More
I was recently down in Martha’s Vineyard for a friend’s wedding, so I took advantage of the beautiful local scenery for my own portfolio. I was only there for a few days, but I managed to see most of the island and snap a few memorable images of the trip.Read More
