People and portraits

We love to see ourselves in pictures. Probably more than 90% of the photographs in the average photo album are people pictures. Sure, pictures of pets can be appealing, superb landscapes can take our breath away and undersea images can capture our imagination, but people pictures are in a class of their own.

From the family snapshot to a formal portrait, good people pictures convey a message. The picture can tell a story, show relationships or provide inspiration.

In most cases, conveying a message is not that difficult. You simply have to think before you click the shutter. Occasionally, you will see it before you in a candid shot, and will have to capture it quickly before it is interrupted.

When taking school pictures, some photographers simply pose the child in front of the camera and take a picture - sort of like an assembly line. Others take the time, albeit brief, to interact with the child and evoke a pleasant aspect of his or her character that will be revealed in the picture.

Gimme Shelter, for the ladies

JULY 9, 2011 - Controversial when it was proposed in 2008, Tutt Street Place enjoyed a warm welcome when it officially opened Friday.

Providing social housing to women in need and their families, the building financed through NOW Canada. I was hired by Ledcor Construction earlier this spring to photograph the building before residents moved in.

Additional mobile flash units brightened the playground to balance with the setting sunlight on the western face.

Big heart in little runner

JUNE 2011 - Jonathan Welsh ran a marathon in his socks for Okanagan kids - particularly his brother - at the annual 24-hour relay for the Boys and Girls Clubs.

The spunky 8-year-old ran 120 laps on the Apple Bowl Track over the 24-hour period. Over $170,000 was raised by two dozen teams to fund programs by the Okanagan Boys and Girls Club and the Easter Seals Camp in Winfield.
