Sources of light

I'm messing around with this theme to see if I can get images together that can relate to sources of light in someway.

This image above was one taken after a cold night, and people started putting on heating in buildings and homes. A picture for me that defines October in Ottawa. The resemblance to a city under seige or perhaps a great fire was one I saw when I took the shot.

This is an abstract photograph I took from within a vehicle on a rainy evening, I really like this one a lot.

This one I'm stuck with but am actually liking it more and more, there certain elements about it that can be different. An emptier street, one less car, too many distraction, but I don't see this as an image that is everything for everyone. In actuality, it is for me a stepping stone, a learning curve...I'm almost there. Only when I get there, I'll realize I have so much further to go.I love that thought.

Long over due

Well it's been long over due that I update this blog, I kind of miss the short conversations I have in my mind as I'm typing away and loading images. I reached a point where I'm somewhat stuck and at the same time I've reached a point where I need to find further perspective.

This is understandable, it has been a very busy time in my life. After the show in the photography X festival (which was wonderful), some personal issues with family and work related travel, I still managed to bring my camera with me, which helps me in ways that prove to be more therapeutic than about taking pictures. However unless I take the time to closely scrutinize, reflect on images I take, where I was, what I was feeling...then there is a lack of potential growth and learning more about myself and how I see things.

The photography x festival was a wonderful experience, from both a bystander checking out the shows, and being part of a show myself. I can't thank my friends and family enough, they being there means more to me then they probably know. The opening was a fantastic day, at least it was in my personal world. All the beautiful faces, the handshaking, the conversations, the hugs and embraces will always be the reward that surpasses everything else in that experience. Even the faces that were missing, were there with me.

Well it seems improper at this point that I actually add images to this post, you probably realize by now that I hate organic photography that have images with flowers with typing in it that says thank you...that's not me. (probably why I never liked greeting cards lol)

So in this post, I'll do something that the other posts won't do. I'll let the words speak louder than the image.

Thank you.

Drag (The life of a different kind of queen)

I haven't been very active lately with my blog, partly because of the normal insanity of real life and preparation for a group exhibit that I'm really proud and exited to be part of.

However I felt compelled to get started on a new project sooner rather than later, a new photo book, something that I can use as a portfolio but also dedicate to a specific theme. The book will be called Drag "the life of a different kind of queen" The ultimate goal is to show the human side of the lives of Drag Queens, as performers, as men, as women, as people...

This will take about 6 months if not more, but I'm excited. I'm looking forward to learn more about the beautiful craft of photography and learn more about Drag Queens, a new journey!


I want to thank the lovely Markida Brown and Icesis Couture , they were wonderful models, and great contributors to the start of this project. Fantastic performers!

The book will be essay-documentary style, the processing will be an influence from film and non typical commercial style. That is subject to change as this project progresses.
