Scott Jarvie440,675*POST YOUR GOOGLE+ ALBUM OF PICTURES* It's been very very popular event in the past and I'm finally doing it again tonight. _This time it will be more organized, more heads up than usual and even a live event._ *SHARE AN ALBUM/GALLERY LINK* It's simple and easy but a lot of work and very fun for all. You simply share an album here and I'll be going through every single one of the albums. Then I will +1 the pictures in the album that I'm really drawn to. *BENEFIT* Well it's simply if you'd love to know which pictures I like most.  I always loved knowing which pictures people really love of mine because it helps me have an eye for which pictures are best received. It's a huge part of becoming a better photographer in my opinion. _*To be able to put out great art is first to know what great art looks like*_ *ON AIR* This will be something new... I'm going to go through all the albums Live, Online as an On-Air hangout. I'll talk a little bit about what I'm doing. If the show goes well I'll keep it for later viewing on YouTube... if the recording isn't great I won't. *SPECIAL GUEST* Because I want to have an outloud conversation about what and why I'm doing things  I will have my good friend and great photographer @109486822103622036238 on the show to facilitate the discussion. She will also visit a lot of these albums and +1 pictures as well. We ask that everyone add her to a circle ... not just because she's awesome (though that's reason enough) but so that if any of these albums are by mistake limited access she will have access. *DIRECTIONS* 1. Paste a link of a Google+ image gallery 2. Put a title or description of what we'll see in the album 3.  *IMPORTANT* If you post a link you hereby give us permission to use a screenshare view of all those pictures and perhaps your profile in a recorded Youtube video. 4. Make sure the album is Public access 5. Add @100962871525684315897  @109486822103622036238 to your circles 6. Return the favor. Take some of the other people's albums and +1 some of your favorites. *IMPORTANT* It bears repeating: _If you post a link you hereby give us permission to use a screenshare view of all those pictures and your profile (maybe) in a recorded Youtube video._ Do not post a link if you are not ok with lots of people visiting that link in addition to us and are not ok with it being on video as well.Share your Album- A Jarvie PlusOne Critique Experience2012-09-12 05:30:00142

How to affect change
I am 38 years old. And often I ponder about my artist's legacy. Isn't that crazy?! I am already wondering about 'the end'. What will be left of me, my work and how will others remember me? If you read this blog regularly, you will know I am working on a ser...

Why is everybody following the same path?
I decided to scale back my social media presence this year for one main reason: to keep my vision as an artist clean, clear and pure. You see people, some of you might find that a very snobbish or egocentric notion. But if you think of it, I – excuse me – w...

King Creek and Opal Range

Here's a scan from a darkroom print I made over the weekend.

It shows King Creek in Kananaskis Alberta flowing under (from left to right) Mount Brock, Mount Blane, Mount Burney. All these mountain are over 2700m (8800ft) high. Mount Wintour sits in the foreground to the right.

#MinimalMonday  wrap up isn't going to happen this week because unfortunately I only got 3 entries this week. :( The entries for this week will be tallied up in next week's wrap up. 

So on that note, if you'd like to participate in the #MinimalMonday  theme (it's a landscape based theme only) then tag your posts correctly with the # and tag me in the post too. 

Here's a little example.

Minimal Monday Wrap up no 209-210

Sorry I disappeared over the holiday period. I'm making some drastic changes in my life these days. I've decided to let go of a long term relationship with someone and to pursue what I feel is more important for me at the moment. Being harmonious with myself in all aspects of life. Not just in the photography side. 
I was without a computer for most of the holiday period.

Never mind me. Just holding one of my photographic hero's prints. Original 1984 Michael Kenna 6/45 print of 'Ratcliffe Power Station, Study 19'. Geez dreams do come true. I wish I owned this!

On the other hand, if you wish to see some of my prints, than come out tomorrow night. The opening of the show 'B&W' at Gravity Espresso and Wine Bar in Inglewood starts at 6pm.

Well? WHAT ABOUT THAT FOR A WEEK EH?!

Also when you have a minute or 5, don't forget to watch the video a friend of mine made about me. I know it's crazy right? It was fun doing this. Here's the link: https://t.co/CCz1Jk5IXi 
A share is always appreciated through your channels as well. 

Also when you are in Calgary for the next few months, don't forget to stop by and look at 5 of my photographs in the show 'B&W'. Details can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/odutrephoto

I have one more secret to reveal. Maybe I'll keep that release for after the new year. It's a big one. :D

See you all next week. ___

Finally I am able to release this!

If you are free and in Calgary on the 8th of December, come join +Nathan Elson, Curtis Dez, Samuel Hoffe and I for the opening of 'B&W' at Gravity Espresso & Wine Bar in Inglewood. 

Super excited to have the opportunity to exhibit with this very talented bunch.

Come out! Bring a friend! Have some beers (their selection is awesome, I already have my eye on one of my favourite heavy Belgian beers), or a coffee and some food.

It is going to be a great night!

Minimal Monday Wrap up no 203

If you follow me on 'that other social media channel' you will know by now that my mug will be on TV soon. I know the horror! CTV TWO Alberta Primetime paid me a visit on Saturday. They are doing a 4-5 min piece on me and my work. Pretty crazy if you think of it really. 
Anyway. What else... Oh I am going to show 5 24x30" prints very soon. If you are in Calgary you might want to keep your eye out for an announcement soon. 

There's more stuff but for now, I won't talk about what else is coming down the pipe yet. 

On to the wrap up of this weeks #minimalmonday  

Some good stuff was posted this week. Really good stuff. Makes me happy. Minimalism is something I like looking at. It often has one singular easy to understand message. 

Here we go!

Some really good stuff was added to this week's #MinimalMonday  ! SO happy to see the pace picking up again.

And when busy can't become any busier, some more opportunities came down the pipeline for me. WHY do all these things ALWAYS come at me at the same time?!

My dad forwarded me a few scans from a Tri-X film he found last week. The film had never been developed. To his surprise he found photos of me on it! So he had to share.

Here's me, at age probably 1 and a bit, chewing on a box of Tri-X. Looks like I was a chubby kid lol.

I guess I was always destined to be a photographer. And maybe this is why film feels so yummy to me. ;)

Talk about a #ThrowbackThursday photo! Geez. #TBT

Minimal Monday Wrap up no 200

A huge milestone here at #MinimalMonday  . 
I'd like to say thank you for so many encouraging messages over the last few weeks. When I started this theme, I never thought I was going to do this for 200 episodes. That's almost 4 years of curating your work. I have seen many of you grow through that time. Heck I have grown with seeing your work as well. Some of you came into the theme with little to know understanding of what Minimalism was and look at you now! And some of you were pretty much settled into your own already.

I am so proud that the theme has shown quite a few of you how and why simplification of the composition is a good thing.
And through the years I've also been lucky to have met some of you along the way. 

200 episodes! Man... all good things must come to an end.

Minimal Monday Wrap up no 198

Looking back on the posts I've made this past year on this page. Seems like I have quit photography and the only thing I've posted were #MinimalMonday  wrap-ups.

Don't worry kids. I am still hard at work on the photo front. I am working hard on the logging series. Which is my priority.

The great news on that front is that next week, a selection of the series (that I have not yet made public because it is ongoing) is going to be used by the Yellowstone 2 Yukon Initiative as a guideline for the discussion/meeting they will have with the Minister of Forestry on current logging practices in the Eastern Slopes.

SO that makes me incredibly proud. Hopefully my work can and will make a difference. Some more awesome stuff is in the pipeline. But I can't quite talk about that just yet.

King Creek and Opal Range

Here's a scan from a darkroom print I made over the weekend.

It shows King Creek in Kananaskis Alberta flowing under (from left to right) Mount Brock, Mount Blane, Mount Burney. All these mountain are over 2700m (8800ft) high. Mount Wintour sits in the foreground to the right.

Solargraph 2012-2015

On December 20th 2012, I hung a dozen of cans all over Cochrane and in the foothills to photograph Solargraphs. On the 2013 summer solstice I was able to retrieve all of them, but 1 (this one), because of overland flooding. 

I was out on Friday the 11th of September, showing my dad the northern lights when my eye caught trees I kind of recognized. All the sudden I put 2 and 2 together. OMG this is the place I hung that solargraph can! Sure enough, I was able to find the can I left behind that night.

This is the photo that came out of the can. This is exposed for 995 days! Or 2 years, 8 months and 3 weeks. The camera has moved (by accident or luck depending on your view of things) a number of 4 times. Not by me.

Solargraph 2012-2015

On December 20th 2012, I hung a dozen of cans all over Cochrane and in the foothills to photograph Solargraphs. On the 2013 summer solstice I was able to retrieve all of them, but 1 (this one), because of overland flooding.

Probably just a nosy cow or horse. 

SO what do you see? All the arcs are sun tracks. On the bottom you see a faint impression of the trees I previously described and the hill they were on. On top you see some water damage and on the bottom left you see that the emulsion of the paper has cracked. If you look closely, you also see silver crystals peppering the surface and scratches and other random things.

Logging on the side of a bird sanctuary

Here in Alberta, we don't care about common sense when it comes to forest practices.
Here I was, disgusted, on the side of a mountain called Plateau Mountain. Plateau is a bird sanctuary. It was with disbelief I saw logging companies log right up to the border of the bird sanctuary. Yeah like animals know boundaries.

A late contribution to #mountainmonday curated by +Michael Russell The mountains in the back are situated on the Alberta, British Columbia border. The 'funny' thing is. Behind these mountains is a HUGE coal mine called 'Green Hills'. Get you some of that! It is really getting too ridiculous for words.

Sometimes I need to take a break from all the destruction I've been photographing. Since spring I've been working on the Logging series (name undetermined) and sometimes I get really depressed by it all.

That's when I go out in search of quiet beauty.

Here's a sand bluff in the Ghost Valley that is slowly eroding away by the forces of the wind.

To me, this is incredibly beautiful. Hope you like it too.

Minimal Monday Wrap Up no 183 and 184

Back from Las Vegas where it was incredibly hot (every day was over 108F, that's 42C for my fellow metric peeps). If you follow along on my other social media streams you will know that for about 4-5 days before I left, I was debating to bring a camera. I went from 4x5, to no camera at all the night before, to bringing the Ikonta medium folder a few hours later. I'm glad I took the Ikonta with me. It's little, and precisely framing is kind of out of the question (the bottom of the viewfinder gets covered up by the top of the lens). But boy is it fun. Measured the light once and let her rip. No zone system no nothing. I guessed. And it was very liberating. I took 10 rolls with me but only shot 4 1/2. Already developed them and they look surprisingly awesome. Used Tri-X for 4 rolls (pulled to 200 asa) that's maybe why they look so good..... more »

Used Tri-X for 4 rolls (pulled to 200 asa) that's maybe why they look so good.. The 1/2 roll was HP5+ (also pulled to 200). I developed the Tri-X in HC110-B. They look very snappy and have good density. The HP5+ is dull and lacks contrast. I should have developed that in Perceptol instead of the usual DD-X. But I was not going to make a whole batch for 1 film that I rarely use.

I assumed I was going to hate Vegas, but absolutely LOVED IT!!! Going back next month.

Anyway ENOUGH about me and my trip. Here are the wrap ups as promised. Enjoy.

Minimal Monday Wrap Up no 182

**NEWSFLASH**
Next week I am off the Vegas (42+ degrees C weather, YAY! NOT!) so there isn't going to be a wrap up next week. The wrap up for next week is going to coincide with the wrap up the week after.

Beautiful work this week by all 7 :( people adding work to the theme. Is it me or is G+ as good as dead?

Hectic at work. So a super quick wrap up. Also, you're probably waiting to see a darkroom update. I'm keeping that for the big reveal. :)

Today is ‪#‎WorldOceansDay‬!

Here's a photo I made last year in Newfoundland on a very windy day. It was taken in Sally's Cove just outside of Gros Morne National Park and shows the Gulf of St Lawrence.
