There are some of my favorite photographs. They are in no particular order, and the only common thread amongst them is that I like them. This was taken at the Hudson's Hope Rodeo in Northeastern BC. in 2007. I used my D200 and 80-200 lens out at the 200 mm setting.
The inuksuk can be found throughout the arctic and are a familiar symbol of the Inuit. In Fort St John we lived on an acreage just a few miles north of town, right on the Alaska Highway and this Inuksuk was in our front yard.
This one is of my little guy when he is about one week old. When we were in Fort St John we often took in boarders, Luke Florence from Australia was one of those boarders, he was up working in the oil patch to make money for culinary school and also wanted to learn photography so that he could take photos of his creations. So we collaborated, he cooked and plated, and I showed him how to use minimal equipment to photograph his food. This is from one of those sessions. We used his D7000, my SB-800 flash and some tinfoil from the kitchen to light this photograph.
The Sweetgrass Hills photographed from just east of Coffin Bridge on the Milk River. This is actually one of my first photographs ever, it was done back in the late spring and I believe I was supposed to be in math class instead of traipsing through the coulees of Southern Alberta. It ended up being selected by Readers Digest for inclusion in one of the books that they did back in the early 70's.
Another one of my little guy. It was Boxing Day and Santa had brought one of those whiteboard easels for him and his sister (who's the next picture). I was busy working in my office when Preston came to the door and asked if he could come in. I turned around and this is what I saw, so grabbed the camera off the desk and grabbed a shot, then went out to the playroom and grabbed the one of Katherine that is below.
Kate, as we call her, pretty much seems to be allergic to being clean. Believe it or not, when I took this poor starving orphan photo, Kate had been out of the tub for less than 30 minutes. We had taken the kids to the park for a movie, and she managed to find the only piece of open dirt in the entire park.
