I met Lesley as I made my way home after a photo walk. At first I wasn’t sure if he would be willing to have his photo taken but went ahead and pointed my camera at him. He smiled and allowed me to take the…

A few candid and permission-asked portraits from the past few days. From the top: 1.Semi-candid photo of Michelle. She saw me coming but didn’t say no as I took the photo. I like that she’s looking away, and not at the camera at all. 2.…

It’s been a good couple of days on the streets. A lot of people digging the camera and allowing themselves to be photographed! Good vibes all around :) Three photos for this Tuesday evening: 1. Andy was quite cheerful and at first he thought I had…

Candid photo of Gary and the reflections just looked interesting to me :) Looks like another cold weekend here, unfortunately. So much for being the first day of spring when it was -30C today! Not sure how much energy I’ll have to get outside and…

Approximately one week ago, I met Larry on the street and he allowed me to take his photo. Today I bumped into him again; this time he was with his friend Sylvia. He noticed me as I approached but didn’t expect me to take the…

I took the first photo candidly as I passed by. Dwayne was a bit surprised and quickly asked why I did that. He was ok with my answer and we had a short discussion afterwards about various topics including the weather, how long he’s lived…

A few candid photos from the past couple of days. Lately, I’ve been following some interesting discussions. Does a street photo always need to tell a story? I’ve always stood by the belief that it is up to the viewer to decide if something has…

Another “on my way back to work photo”, this time of Marvin. I noticed him approaching and thought he’d make a great subject so I stopped him and asked if I could take a photo. At first he was a bit hesitant but gave in…

Went out for a Sunday photo walk, taking advantage of some beautiful weather (finally!) we’ve been having; if you can call -8C beautiful! For Winnipeg, that is a heat wave right about now. It was also part of an event organized by Nicole Small. I…

The second day with the camera went well and I managed to get a few decent semi-candid and posed portraits. Although the weather has smartened up a bit, it was still a bit cold, just not as bad as before. I didn’t get too many…

I haven’t posted a new entry for several days. Part of that is a lack of new content, my film hasn’t yet been developed and I’m starting to plan the next stage in my photographic journey. As many of you know, I was waiting for…

Have I already given up on my film photography adventure!? Not at all! I still have a few more frames remaining and it has been brutally cold the last couple of days so I’ve just stayed in. As I’ll be getting a new camera system…

Three more shots from my recent roll of film. I read in the morning paper that this winter has been the coldest in Winnipeg since 1978 and the third coldest in 100 years! 72 days of -30C and 29 days of -40C. Needless to say,…

Continuing on with my film adventure, I took another roll in for developing and ended up with a few shots I thought were pretty decent. I’m still relying on the 1 hour developing but have found several people who are willing to show be the…

Well, not quite, but for the immediate future I’m going to be using my film Leica M3 and put away the Canon DSLR. I’m not rebelling against digital technology – without digital cameras I’d probably lose my mind! I’m attempting to get completely familiar and…

One of the most important things I’ve learned over the past couple of years is that being a diverse photographer can really help during those times when there just isn’t enough of a particular subject. Since 2011, when I first started to become serious about…

Part of my very incomplete Thai Tattoo project. Tattoos have always intrigued me, from childhood until now. I love to hear the various reasons for a person getting one or the different meanings behind the images. A persons tattoos can tell an interesting story about…
