Here are some of my favourite Olympic reaction shots where I captured the E-MOTION or "Energy In Motion" of the moment through photography.
When you look at these images, how do they make you feel?
Photography is an incredible art form in that it records the energy of the moment. Thats why when we look at a photograph we can feel some of that energy. We can relate to the subject and their experience.
The Olympics have always been a very special time for me and I have captured some incredible Winter Olympic moments over the years. With the Olympics happening right now in Sochi I thought that I would honour the Spirit of the Olympics and Our Canadian Athletes by sharing an Olympic Moment, Photo, Story, Tip or Video from my past Olympic experiences for each day of the Sochi Winter Olympics (Feb. 7, 2014 - Feb. 23, 2014).
I am calling this series of posts "The Spirit of the Olympics: A Journey Through The Lens" and I hope to add to the inspirational spirit of the Olympics by sharing with you some of my most amazing Olympic moments through the perspective of my Nikon lens. Photography captures the energy of the moment and I hope that you can feel some of the energy from the images I will share with you over the next few weeks.
Vancouver 2010 Closing Ceremonies
I thought I would begin this journey with some of the images I captured at the Vancouver 2010 Closing Ceremonies which tell the story of the passing of the torch from Vancouver to Sochi.
I would love to hear your comments or if you have any of your own Olympic moments to share on Twitter or Facebook. Enjoy!!
"Nikon D800 - One Camera: Two Perspectives" is a video shot entirely with the Nikon D800 HD-SLR by world-class professional photographer, Kristian Bogner, and award-winning cinematographer, Kirk Neff. While in Canmore, Alberta, Kristian and Kirk worked with Canadian athletes to capture breathtaking stills and videos with the D800. The result of their creative genius -- combined with the spectacular quality the D800 provides -- is this one-of-a-kind video. We hope you enjoy it. View More Images Here
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.
