So, I just was thinking that I don’t think I’ve put a post up about my admission into the Eddie Adams Workshop
It’s coming up fast! Just one week away. Strange how things come all at once — I fly the very next morning after my Flash Forward show to Newark, NJ, pick up a car, and then drive an hour or so to what I assume to be the middle of nowhere in New York State. In this middle of nowhere will be an outstanding experience, both personally and professionally. Top American news and editorial editors will be there, alongside professional photographers working at the top levels of the industry, plus about 99 other young photo cats like myself from all over the world. Oh!, one of those 99 is my friend Mark Blinch. Mark and I went to University together, nicest guy, amazing photographer. He took the time to teach me how to process black and white 35mm when I was in first year, best guy!
oh, and then I plan to hang in Manhattan for a few days. Meet some editors, meet some friends, see some art, take some pictures, live some life.
It’s all very exciting…

I do a bunch of work for The Drake Hotel It’s really nice having a client that trusts me, is super hip, attracts great people and has a wonderful staff to work with. Anyway, so aside from “event” stuff, I’ve also done some promotional and interior work for them. Just thought I’d post an example of this one image I’ve been working on for a long time. The dining area of the Drake is the most difficult place I’ve ever shot. So many different light sources, colours and intensities. And as if that wasn’t enough, It’s also a dining room and people are often kinda weird about having their photographs taken while eating. Anyway, after a lot of work, I think I have a very successful image. Maybe I’ll post some more of them. But probably not anytime soon. I’m so busy preparing for The Eddie Adams Workshop in New York, priorities ya know? Which is too bad because I don’t put up nearly enough stuff on this blog. I deal with photos everyday, I have to get better at sharing them. Something to work on…
