The more I go, the more I seem to be moving into a direction I never ever thought. Unexpected things have happened, good and bad and I am still not sure if this is where I am to be or not. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE what I have been doing but there is fear. I fear that I will loose my connection and passion of photographing people because the opportunities have not changed and I am really starting […]
“SOLA” – By oneself; alone. Used as a stage direction to a female character. A beginning of a new and ongoing project. A project that developed unconsciously from a creative idea I had started to structure in 2014. Today it has become more personal than ever. From observer to participant, giving voice, ( in an unexpected manner), to what had remained a mystery for a very long time.
Last Saturday I had planned to go out on the road to return to some locations that I felt would fit some creative ideas I have been dying to put together. Unfortunately, the weather was terrible so I had to cancel out on that idea. Instead of sulking on the couch I decided to head into the darkroom to make some prints. This print is from a series I did with Peter Grogono, who is really cool and down to […]
I have new challenge ahead of me and I am not sure if I am happy about it or not. Strange I know…..because I love taking on challenges. Unfortunately, this challenge I need to face is one that had hit me hard emotionally. I don’t really want to get into it too tough, but it seems that I had fooled myself to believe that I would be able to run away from an honorable past and a particular state […]

I am always open to trying new and existing things involving anything that caters to the “non-digital” world of photography. My newest query is the subject of film/paper development with Caffenol. Although I have heard of the use of Caffenol before, I did not expect there to be as much information out there as I came to see. I know that it is not a new discovery or technique, but since I have never experimented with it, it is kind […]

It has been a while since I have gone out and about on the streets of Montreal at night. I really have to do this more often. I chose to use my Nikon F100 for this self challenge because I find it perfect in situations where movement is quick and all around me.
Coming into a new field of dreams, a new output and new frame of mind with a focus on my own true objectives. Why do I enjoy photographing people when the opportunity sets itself before me? I love emotion. Emotions are powerful and meaningful and they remind me of our own human reality. Fear, happiness, anger, joy, surprise, strength, weakness, pain, sadness, excitement and all emotions in between..they are beautiful, they are real. They are all part of what defines […]
