Yuppers read up go here to read about it! At least Translink has responded to the thread which is awesome. While I do understand why they need to do this, I worry about how this is going to effect things long term. In e-town I was constantly avoiding the transit cops (and security guards in general) because they had a zero tolerance policy when it came to photography. Not to say that i didn’t shoot there all the time!!
Coming to Vancouver and having a city relaxed attitude to photo walking and the like is refreshing but I worry that post Olympics what policy’s are going to stay around for ever and what things that should be public domain are now going to be off limits?
…from this last weekend but I haven’t had the time to sit down and do so.
Can for comments was a complete success with around 63 comments in that short time, so depending on time this week I should be able to get that all organized and delivered so some peeps can eat for xmas.
All day all I do is dream about snowboarding. It has consumed me entirely and I am not sure what to do about it! Last Saturday I had plans to possibly go to whistler for some snowy good times, but alas I totally slept in until 8:30am and decided that a half day at a half open mountain wasn’t worth the tank of gas and a 70 buck lift ticket, so I went to cypress’s opening day instead :) Saturday was the opening of the Easy Rider chair and the runway run. (IE: the bunny hill) Kinda lame I know but I went anyway :)
Sunday I convinced Coaxial that snowboarding was fun and went again to the other ½ of the mountain that opened that day. We boarded until it was time to come down off the mountain and prepare for one of the best parties I will go to this year (and believe me I am going to a lot of parties this year)
The Aislewalk party at The Palisades Hotel is where the latest issue was unveiled to all us folk. Why do I bring this work type stuff up? Well I am proud to say that I shot one of the editorials in this issue.
Yup fun stuff really. It’s funny cause we do this stuff all the time in my work world but I never really talk about it because this blog is what I do out side of work (I recognize the irony. I am a photographer by day and after a long day of work what do I do to unwind and relax? I take photos of stuff) so work is rarely talked about. Also if you get a chance check out the Art + Soul Gallery at the Palisades Hotel (on Robson Street) to see Erin Gilmore photography show Taste. Go see some of her brilliant works because Erin is awesome!
Because I had such a great time on Sunday I thought that on Monday I should go snowboarding again. I went from opening till about noon and came home and worked away the day. It’s much easier to work away the day when you went snowboarding in the morning.
Tomorrow I am going to see if the opposite is true. I have to drive out to Langley in the AM but after work stuff I am going to his cypress for the afternoon/evening. The night riding has started for the year so I will check that out.
There is tonnes more that I wanna talk about but I am exhausted.
This is a photo from part two of last Thursdays photo shoot. We just popped down to our parkade for some photo fun. Again Sarah did a fantastic job with the makeup/hair and Michelle looked fantastic! Good fun all around!
Well the News at 11 was an hour late but here you all are. Today as I said before I went up a mountain with a new model Michelle. I had a snowy forest idea and Sarah Bergeest was able to work her magic in the makeup & hair department! They both were troopers dealing with ridiculous amounts of snow and rain, as well as having a good time! (that’s hard to do without a snowboard under ya. ) I wish I had a video crew to follow us around because dealing with the 10ft of snow was hilarious and should been seen!!! I say 10ft mostly because I don’t know!! I kept sinking to my waist and not touching the ground so who knows how far that went!!! Anyway here is a photo
As you know I have been going through the archives of the institute as of late, and I came across a photo shoot that I did in 2004 that I have never even looked at! I feel like Garry Winogrand lately taking photos and not looking at them, but what can you do really. So ya this was a shoot that we did in studio as well as on a snowy golf course in an Alberta November! I ended up getting fairly busy and going though this shoot got back burnered untill today.
As my loving M said yesterday “it has been four years since we have had a life” Its funny that concept of time to do things for the sake of doing them as apposed to a means to an end. well anyway I am going to try and find some photogenic snow so enjoy.
This is definitely has to be the case for Photographer Ari Versluis and stylist Ellie Uyttenbroek. This pair has been working together since fall 1994 on a fantastic project they call Exactitudes.
The fact that they have such a volume of photos with this project makes is unbelievable. This is definitely worth checking out. But volume isn’t everything. The fact that they have completely normal people in the exact same pose that changes from grouping to grouping is amazing not to mention finding these nearly exact people from all over the world!
A new shot form the last shoot with Melissa.
There will be more to come once i get some film developed
