These Killer Water Sport Images were shot last month in Maui under extreme conditions. More to come soon.
Remembering An Incredible Christmas in India Dec. 25, 2009.
These images were all shot in the 24hrs from Christmas Eve to Christmas Day, starting with a Beer Pong game with locals in the Mountains to rafting with World Class Kayakers in the Great Subansari River, beginning our two week adventure on the river that only about two handfuls of people have ever been down and likely ever will.
This fall I had the Honour of Best Man and MC at my Best Buddy Dave's Wedding. He hired another photographer so I could enjoy the day and be there for him in a different way than I am used to at a wedding. The photographer did a really good job, but I was still itching to capture at least one special image from the day and drooling over the amazing location in Banff and the warm setting light. After the ceremony as people filtered to the reception, I was able to steal 5 mins and get a few amazing shots, for ME and for them. I am sooo glad I did!!
The moral of this story is to Beg, Steal, Ask, Go Get or do Whatever it takes to get the shot your heart desires. Even and Especially if there doesn't seem to be time. Creating time is sometimes harder than creating the shot itself. In my opinion the effort is ALWAYS worth it.
I have been a fan of all things that go fast for as long as I can remember and have had the opportunity to shoot and fly in many of these amazing Private Airplanes over the last few years. That's why I was very pleased when I got the job to shoot the large fleet of Luxury Aircrafts for Sunwest Aviation, Calgary. In May 2009 I received several awards at the Professional Photographers of Canada National Convention for the above image. Awards included, best Industrial Image in Canada, Judges Choice award as the top Commercial Image in Canada, an Award of Excellence and the image accepted into the National Archives as one of the top 40 images in Canada for 2009.
