Corduroy Enduro 2008

While staying at my cottage through September, I decided to head out and photograph a portion of this year’s Corduroy Enduro event, which is held each year in the Gooderham area (North of Peterborough, ON), and not too far from where I was staying. These photos represent a good portion of the action at the event.

International Air Show

I spent the afternoon on a friend’s roof top in downtown Toronto shooting the air show. All the photos I took were using a 1000mm reflex lens, which is fixed at f/10, and it is nearly impossible to focus and maintain a decent framing due to the extreme magnification and lens weight. I was impressed that I was able to obtain this selection of images.

Lunar Eclipse

There was a lunar eclipse last night over most of the East Coast of North America, so I stayed up late (early) to photograph it. The event begain around 5:00am and lasted about two hours before it was all over. The photo montage shown here is a collection of images taken through the duration of the event, and demonstrate the dramatic colour change that occurs.

World Enduro Canada 2007

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?

Martha’s Vineyard Vacation

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.

Martha’s Vinyard Wedding

I went to Marth’a Vinyard recently for a long weekend to be a part of a friend’s wedding, and managed to snap a few pictures despite being extremely hung over from the previous night’s escapades. The setting on the island was perfect for the event, and the simple gathering was very romantic, and we couldn’t have asked for better weather.

First Birthday Party

There’s something about a child’s birthday that brings out the smile, and the chocolate cake! Leith celebrated his first in style, inviting a few friends to join in the event, share the cake, and wear funny hats.

Domestic Goddess Food Shoot

We arranged for a day-long shoot with the Domestic Goddess herself, to build a small collection of photos to help promote her cookbook proposal, as well as to increase her library of images for the website. The food was as tasty as it was pretty, as we worked through various recipes and presentations through the day, starting with french toast and winding up with cupcakes and strawberry tarts. I’ll be eager to repeat this experience if only for the munchies.
