The World is Small!

The world we live in is truly a small place! I was recently contacted, early one morning by a heavily accented voice asking if I lived near the little village of Sointula.  Turns out it was an agency named TransTerra Media, a media outlet for video and photo storytellers based in Beirut, Lebanon with over 250 media outlets all over the world. They were working with a client in Finland needing images from Malcolm Island to run with a story on the Finnish utopian colony that was originally founded on the island.  You never know what a phone call can bring in this business!

Successful Hornby Island’s Autumn Seascape Workshop 2014!

A big hats off to the participants this year on Hornby Island’s Autumn Seascape workshop hosted by myself and Karen McKinnon . A lot of fun (our trademark) was had by all, night shooting, scavenger hunts, rainy forests and early mornings were the norm and as usual we came away with another great experience as photo educators inspired by the energy of our participants.  Check out a few of the images created by our talented participants!  Keep in mind that when these folks first arrived most had mentioned that they were program shooters only and didn’t really understand how to take pictures manually!

Creativity at night, light painting, ghosts and spectors!!
