    My favorite, ever.....

    This was one very lucky morning in the Tetons, back in 2009. It was the morning I had hoped for in my numerous years of visiting the park. It has also garnered me many print requests and some good $$$. :)

    Hard to pick a favorite because my best stuff doesn't belong to me. I do like this shot.

    For me, it has to be this shot.
    This is my brother David, my 'baby' brother 16 years younger than myself. We 'lost' David for about 2 years, literally lost him, the damned crazy kid got himself caught up in the worst things you could imagine and for 2 years we didn't know all that much...least of all his whereabouts. Suffice to say, the family thought it would all end one day with a knock on the door by the police. You could imagine then the hysterical scenes in my parents house when it was David that knocked carrying a gym bag with his clothes. David now runs his own painting business working 6 days a week, plays local football, has been bitten by my passion for snowboarding and has an awesome girlfriend. A scenario we never thought possible a few years back.

    This shot was taken about 3 months after he came back.
    I don't know if I'll ever take a photo that means more to me than this.

    This photo is my favourite this days, i like it because it reflects the joy of the little girl with a very good framing of the waves and the surrounding.

    Way up there.
    This was one of the first shots i took with the PL 25. Not the greatest shot but it's my favorite. I can't get over all of the details this lens captures wide open.

    I too am a big brother.

    After reading this description, scrolling down, and seeing the shot, and seeing the tattoo, I got the chills / goosebumps.

    I want to look you in the eyes and give you a firm shake of your hand, but alas, we're separated by oceans and electrons.

    I was really inspired by a local photographer by her images of moving clouds, almost paint like and that lead me into some minimalistic abstract art which i am very grateful for.

    I got frost bite that evening on my fingers because this was shot at -4 to -6 around 8pm in heavy sleet/snow just as i got sent home from work with a back injury. I had to hop back and fourth to check the long exposure then back to the shelter and eventually i had to stop because i couldn't see, feel my fingers or operate the EM5 anymore. I got a few good images that evening and this was my favourite.

    Not fair to make me choose from the dozens that qualify as my "favorite". The more I look the more I find...

    This one of my youngest son in his first Tux, just gives me the feeling that you get from the James Bond or Rat Pack style of being cool. The expressions of everyone else really sets him apart. In the years since this was take his stage presence has just grown and grown when he's performing. Our older kids were just as capable in their own ways but none of them felt comfortable in the limelight.

    I think for me it may be this one, taken on one of my afternoon walks around my local neighbourhood. This dead tree is in a park and this was taken from around a block away, shooting so that the bottom of the frame was above the roofline of the houses between me and the park. Highly selective framing hides the fact that this was actually taken in the middle of suburbia.

    Essentially it's a mood shot. I was after the sky which was darkening with a storm coming in, I think it arrived around half an hour later, and the processing accentuates that sense of impending storm. I like the gradation in the clouds and also the light on the dead tree which I did not tinker with, it just came up that way as I worked on the sky.

    I have a thing for images with a limited colour palette and a muted tonal range, and this shot has both of those things going for it.

    Any post processing on this? Or is that 17mm just that sharp?

    There's just something about this man. After taking the picture I spent a few minutes chatting with him and he just had such a young soul and one of the best outlooks I've ever experienced!
