Dairy Farm

I was shooting on a dairy farm last week. I photographed lots of cows which was kind of fun even though I was dodging cow sh*t and swatting flies! They are doing some promo and branding work with TBG here on the Vancouver Island so I made some stills and shot video...which I will work on next.

Street Portrait

When I shoot for a client I'm usually pretty comfortable meeting and chatting with my new subject. I am a people person...I enjoy connecting with new and interesting people. When I'm on the street with a camera I struggle to ask someone if I can take their picture. It's not easy to approach a stranger, and I will break out in a sweat at the thought! About a week ago I saw this guy playing his accordion. I thought he looked cool so I decided to go for it. I asked him if I could take his picture. Of course he was more than happy, and I felt great that I had faced my fear and made some nice images. I had also now met a nice chap by the name of Aaron Watson...a musician here in Victoria.

We had a short family trip to Tofino recently. It's on the far west coast of Vancouver Island for those who don't know. A cool little town with awesome beaches and scenery. We stayed at Pacific Sands Beach Resort...which was awesome. Here are a few pics taken with the Olympus E-P2 and Panasonic 20mm 1.7 lens. This is a fun camera and as you can see I quite like the Pin Hole Camera art filter and 6x6 aspect.
