I shot these photos of the Sons of Fenrir and their camp during the 2014 Calgary Comic Expo on AgfaPhoto Vista Plus 400 film. The Sons of Fenrir are reenactors who portray 9th century Viking / Norse culture. I spoke to them for awhile and they were some of the most articulate and gracious people […]
Who doesn’t love droids? These shots of R2-D2 were taken at the 2014 Calgary Comic Expo.
With the Calgary Comic Expo coming up next week, I thought I’d post some of the cosplay photos I took last year.
These were shot in Courseulles-sur-Mer, Normandy, France last summer on my battlefields tour sponsored by the Juno Beach Centre Museum. Courseulles-sur-Mer is beautiful and I took a lot of photos while I was there. The last shot is of the statue entitled Remembrance and Renewal as seen reflected in the glass of the Juno Beach […]
These were all shot at Heritage Park using my Canon Rebel 2000 and Ferrania Solaris FG Plus 100 film. I got my Rebel 2000 two years ago for only $35 on eBay. Since then, I’ve shot 99 rolls of film with it. That’s half my film total. I love this SLR because it’s light, easy […]
I shot these in July 2014 at Tower Beach in Vancouver. Tower Beach takes its name from the two World War II era searchlight towers that still stand on the beach silently guarding the entrance to Burrard Inlet. The photos below are of Tower #2 aka CASL #9 (Coast Artillery Search Light) which sits further […]
I have really come to love shooting with Adox Color Implosion 100 film. I always shoot it at box speed and I just love the color tones and grain. It gives a really nice vintage look. And I’m really impressed by the consistency of this film too. I know exactly what I’m going to get […]
These were shot at Juno Beach in Courseulles-sur-Mer, Normandy, France last summer using Adox Color Implosion film. Juno Beach is the codename for the beach that the Canadians stormed on D-Day and it is also home to the Juno Beach Centre, a museum dedicated to those Canadians that fought and lost their lives in WWII. […]
These were shot during my trip to Normandy, France in August. They are from the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial at Omaha Beach. Omaha Beach saw some of the bloodiest fighting on D-Day and the battle and cemetery are both featured in the movie Saving Private Ryan. These were shot using FPP RetroChrome 160 film […]
The shot of the canoes is one of my favourite photos. I love the light and dark of it. These were shot on Fomapan Action 400 film which along with Kodak’s Tri-X are my favourite B&W films.
I came across this really cool bicycle in Arromanches-les-Bains when I was in France this summer. Arromanches is where the British built a Mulberry harbour after D-Day in World War II. The remnants of the Mulberry harbour can still be seen today. I love rescale film and the red, orange and gold tones you can […]
I took these photos of hay bales at Point 67 in Normandy, France. Point 67 is an overlook on Verrières Ridge and lies a few kilometres south of Caen. The battle for the Verrières Ridge was both a part of Operation Atlantic and Operation Spring in July 1944 as part of the overall Battle of […]
I shot these back in June at Heritage Park using a roll of Ferrania Solaris FG Plus 100 film that I bought from Curating Cuteness. They turned out better than expected considering the film expired in 2007. The old steam locomotive runs all around Heritage Park and it’s a pretty cool ride even if the […]
I went hiking up to Widgeon Falls last summer with my best friend. Widgeon Falls is located in Pinecone Burke Provincial Park in BC. I’ve done this canoe trip on Widgeon Creek and hike up to the falls many times before and I am never disappointed by the beauty of the park. Up at the […]
