This is just a quick little video experiment with Adobe Premiere, a piece of software I will be spending a lot of time with in the near future.
Shot with my DSLR, what I like about this video is the extraordinary talent, that is to say the music, lyrics, and performance of Mike McDonald, the sound
recording, the color rendition, and when I am on it and not distracted, the relative smoothness of my video monopod. What I do not like so much is the lack of
smoothness and stability in my framing, the challenge of a day lit stage, and my resorting to effects to jazz it up (although my son really digs the lightning).
I tried to be sparing and respectful of both thetalent and the audience in my limited and hasty post-processing. Also, the video is much crisper and HD on my computer, so I think I need to
upload a file sized to suit WordPress parameters to avoid all this shitty loss of quality to compression.

This show was so well-paced and full of great imagery that I couldn’t resist sharing a few more.
Alberta Aboriginal Arts in a creative collaboration with the National Stiltwalkers of Canada presented Trad Cirq as a work-in-progress at the 1000 Faces Festival earlier in November.
The purpose of this photo shoot was to showcase an up-and-coming neighborhood in the city of Edmonton, Alberta. The images presented in this post are images that were not included in my first edit for a number of reasons The first one is too centre-weighted, too focused on the model and not the main subject (which was the street) The third image does show the street but there is too much negative space in focal area and it does not reveal enough of the distinguishing characteristics of the subject. The second image is just a little ‘behind the scenes” shot for context.

One year ago today our Ruby Mei arrived in the living room. I love you my daughter.
This is one of my favorite images from a shoot I did for Epic Photography in October 2011, when Alison Redford was sworn in as Ed Stelmach’s successor. Now she’s earned it. Now she has the power to change her party and our province for the better.
This frenetic, occasionally jarring, new work by the Good Women Dance Collective considers the social behavior of many creatures including human beings. Stripped down to instincts, these animals are attracted to light that ultimately motivates and shapes the way they move.
This is the first in a series of movement-based films produced in Edmonton, AB. It premiered at the 2012 Expanse Movement Arts Festival.
The start of the 1k Sprint.
My intention here is simply to remind us all about matters that we can easily forget. This man was very present, accommodating, and pleasant, in addition to being a willing subject for me.
