Making Mountains from Gravel Hills

I was asked to do another Polaronesie shoot, something I’m always happy to do. But this time I was presented with a bit of a challenge.
I was asked to make the photos look like they were taken on top of a mountain. Mountains are pretty sparse around Yellowknife, NT, so I took the shoot to the Bristol Gravel Pit.

After a little bit of Photoshop work, I got these.

You can look for the rest of the photos from this shoot on Polaronesie.com

Urban Aurora

I have to thank Pat Kane for sending me the text that got me out of bed the other night. I was half asleep when he told me to look out towards Con Mine. I then spent the next 3 hours running all over the city capturing the lights in as many different locations as I can.

Northern Exposures

It has been a little while since I’ve shot the Aurora. Long time fans might remember my “Purple Pills” shot from Christmas 09, that was my last one.

I was very happy to see a fantastic display of lights last night. It was pretty difficult to get a bad shot of them, but this one turned out the best I think.

Two Lights and a Music Festival

Frozen Eyes Photographic Society, Pat Kane and I teamed up during Folk on the Rocks 2011 to offer free souvenir photos to festival-goers.

I had a couple of lights to work with, and had a blast meeting all kinds of folks. Not to mention it gave me a chance to pass along a bit of studio knowledge to the young volunteers.

Here are a few of the highlights.
