Painting With Light

I've been doing studio work and portraiture for 30 years now. Over that time my lighting has changed as did my equipment and of course there was the transition from film to digital.

There are many styles of portraiture out there and I like my style of work and have been happy with it and my clients have been too. But I decided to try something different. It's good for the creative spirit and it's just plain fun. In this case I wanted to create a painterly style of light. A photograph that looks something like a painting...

Canadian Surgery Forum

One of the things I like doing best as a photographer is to cover conventions. I always get to meet amazing people and when I make my rounds to the various presentations, lectures and workshops I am able to take in some of what they have to say and find out what they are doing in our communities. It certainly re-enforces one belief of mine that we have brilliant and committed people all around us and you come away feeling good about things.

Jeffrey Simpson gave the Langer Lecture at the Canadian Surgery Forum

The  Canadian Surgery Forum held in St John's Newfoundland, September 13th,14th and 15th 2018, is a good example of this. To meet many of these people, to see the complexity of the surgical field, to visit the workshops and hear the best surgeons in the world discuss various issues and challenges with other doctors and medical professionals is inspiring. One of the issues debated was how to keep the cost of medical services at an affordable level. A pressing issue for sure!

Breakfast with the Professor- one of the workshops available

"Breakfast with the Professor" is a workshop where surgeons, other medical professionals and medical students can come and discuss issues and learn from some of the best in the world!

While every imaginal issue was discussed, Stewardship: the ethic that embodies the responsible planning and management of resources, was the major theme of the 3 day convention.

Business Excellence Awards

I've been doing more and more event photography over the last few years and I like it very much.

Event photography is like a lot of other professions and with experience you find your groove.  Through experience you learn lens selection and proper exposure. Yes setting camera exposure can be a little tricky because of the contrasty light, you gotta be careful not to blow out those highlights because that's usually where the action is.

A shot list is a must and arriving early to be able to take some time to scope out the venue is very important. You have to do this because when the show is on the house-lights are dimmed it's best to pre-plan your route so you know how to get around. You also got to know where the video cameras are placed so you won't interfere with those. It's all a matter of professional etiquette and respect is a mutual thing.

Going over the details of the event with the client is vital too. Good thing about this is that I've done so many now I'm able to offer advice on where people should be on stage when doing things like making presentations. This makes the show more visible for the audience and it also makes my work easier and I end up delivering the best product possible to my client!

Following are a series of photos for the St John's Board of Trade 25th Annual Business Excellence Awards December 6th 2017.
