Justin Wondga11,869Feel free to invite others to this event! #yegfirespin We have insurance covered! Edmonton City Hall loves us! We have fire permit covered! Edmonton Fire Department loves us! I'm very happy to announce that after *nearly 2 months' worth of planning*, many e-mails, phone calls and meetings.... ....we are GREENLIT to do a firespin stunt at Edmonton City Hall Pool! Woo-hoo! We need photographers! If you have a camera that can do long-exposure in low light, grab your tripod, bring your gear and come shoot the stunt! It will look AWESOME in your portfolio! I'm not kidding- if your dSLR, compact or point-and-shoot camera can do an exposure as long as 15 seconds and has manual settings for aperture, range and focus, you can shoot this! Bring your wide-angle lenses if you have them! Film shooters, I would recommend the lowest ISO film you can get. We need volunteers! We need only 8 (eight) people (2 on each corner of the pool) to keep photobombers and curious people at a safe distance from the firespin! So, let this public event go viral - please tell your friends, please forward the invite, and then have them tell their friends, and so on, and so on.... ...we hope to see you there! We need all the support we can get! Thank you!FireSpin at City Hall!2013-09-12 21:00:0053

I don't get out to the Rockies as much as people think. When I do, I cherish the experience. Sunday morning was something special. Saturday night I drove from Calgary to Lake Louise through wet falling snow. I wasn't sure what to expect the following morning but I was happy just to be out in the Rocks breathing the fresh mountain air. When I handed in my room key to the hotel front desk Sunday morning I checked out the posted weather report. The guy behind the counter said, "Oh I can get you the latest if you want because that's already old news." Conditions were changing fairly quickly and that's good news to a photographer ;-)

Bungy!!!!!!!!!

If you are going to bungy jump for the first time in your life I figure it might as well be at the world home of bungy jumping - The Kawarau Bridge Bungy in Queenstown New Zealand! Yes that's me (orange jacket and all) starting the 43m jump.

Life is short - go for it!

... and so now I come to journey's end. In a few hours I will board a plane for home and loved ones and so will end my six week trip and two week solo journey photographing New Zealand's South Island. It's been an incredible experience.

Years thinking about it
Months planning it
Weeks traveling beautiful NZ (and AUS)
And now the rest of a lifetime to fondly remember all the great experiences.

I look forward in the months ahead to sharing the work created.

Kia ora New Zealand.

Graduation portrait - 4 light set up. Main light is Elinchrom Ranger through a 60cm Lightrein octo softbox on a boom high camera centre pointed down on the model. One speedlight through a Lastolite Easybox putting some light on the black paper background. One speedlight camera right as fill bounced off of a silver reflector disc. One speedlight camera left and behind in the background pointed at the model for rim lighting and to provide a little light flare to give a paparazzi/glamour feel to the portrait. All lights except for the fill were controlled by the PocketWizard i-TTL system (MiniTT1, AC3, FlexTT5, and Power ST4). The fill was controlled by the good ol’ PocketWizard Plus II and leg power (walking back and forth to manually adjust the power).

Friday was a day of connecting with people as passionate about photography as I am. As I drove through Red Deer, I stopped in to see +Paul Howard  . Some people who make photographs like photography... some people LOVE photography. Paul oozes passion for photography. We had a wonderful chat about the joys and the lessons learned creating photographs and he showed me his great studio space and all his lighting kit (he's got one of those large fans with handles to blow models' hair!). After a great visit with Paul, I made my way to Calgary where I stopped in to see my printer, Costas, at Resolve Photo and picked up some prints he did for me. Wonderful work as always Costas! Then I met some Alberta photographers at a social in Banff. We had an evening of great conversation by the fire at the lovely Rimrock Hotel. It was great to finally meet and chat with +Paul Zizka .

Then Saturday morning I took a drive down Hwy40 to Spillway Lake and enjoyed the start of a new day. When I was photographing this scene I thought of J.K. Rowling's line from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - “Dawn was breaking over the horizon, shell pink and faintly gold...” It was wonderful but short trip down south because after sunrise I had to make my way back home so I could be behind the bench at my son's soccer game in the afternoon. They won 3-2 and he scored the 2nd goal!.___

We had wonderful winter conditions yesterday morning in Strathcona County so I enjoyed some photography in the morning with a little snow, cold temps (but not so cold you'd say... "son of a biscuit it's cold") and a little fog. Then in the afternoon I lit the fire and watched the football games. A good day.

“The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see nature all ridicule and deformity... and some scarce see nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, nature is imagination itself.”

The 12 Bens mountain range as seen from the Gap Road outside of Clifden in Connemara, Ireland


Connemara by Thomas Horton

West of Galway lies a land
Scorched by the chill of northern winds
Where ancient hills stoically contemplate
Their grey reflections in dark, misty lakes

Roiling stormclouds serve as the canvas
For a monochromatic panorama
That lulls the local folk
Into an inescapable monotony
Their lilting language itself
A murmur that recalls the falling rain

The plodding passage of days
In this dreary, silent landscape
Is a hell all its own
For those accustomed
To urban bustle

But the ginger natives of this grey land
Sing bright céilí songs
Drink their lager by golden firelight

Sing bright céilí songs
Drink their lager by golden firelight
Dance reels and jigs
And tell stories of a time
When giants roamed the hillocks
And heroes sailed the roaring seas
In search of mythic monsters

Descended from hearty stock
Of shepherds and saints
These rustic people still regard
The old ways as new
Discover their future through their past
And are never bored
As long as there's a tale to be told
A smile to take in
Or a pint to share with a friend

Children of the Gaeltacht
Sing your rowdy songs
Remind me once again
Of that night in Ballyconneely
When I was one of you
That night you turned me Irish___

So I've been sharing over the last few days images from my album shoot with Tess and the D'linquint. Today I'm sharing the actual album cover and a phone photo from the wonderful album release show last Sunday. The deal I had with the band was I would do the shoot and then their graphic designer would do the post work. After concept meetings with the band I knew generally where the GD was going to go with the images but it's always interesting to see your work interpreted by someone else. It was a fun project. My favourite part about these types of collaborations is working with people who are as passionate about their work as I am about mine and doing my small part to help them share their stories with the world.

Another from the Tess and the D'linquint album shoot. Yesterday, a friend of mine posted a comment about the images which I loved. He said, "I'm not sure that this is what I would normally expect for an album shoot, and I'm finding that I really like what you did." Awesome! What I enjoy most about shoots like this is meeting the clients, discussing the project and throwing ideas back and forth with the aim to combine my style of shooting with their message

Back in August I had the pleasure of shooting an album cover for the band Tess and the D'linquint. Sunday night I attended their awesome CD launch concert at The Club in Edmonton's Citadel Theatre (love those funky chandeliers!). Now that the CD is officially launched and available on iTunes I can share over the next few days the photography from the project. Today's share is the image that was used for the album cover. The album is titled Autumn and the theme is relationship challenges and the phases relationships go through.

I don't get out to the Rockies as much as people think. When I do, I cherish the experience. Sunday morning was something special. Saturday night I drove from Calgary to Lake Louise through wet falling snow. I wasn't sure what to expect the following morning but I was happy just to be out in the Rocks breathing the fresh mountain air. When I handed in my room key to the hotel front desk Sunday morning I checked out the posted weather report. The guy behind the counter said, "Oh I can get you the latest if you want because that's already old news." Conditions were changing fairly quickly and that's good news to a photographer ;-)

Myself and Royce Howland will be giving a talk titled, Telling Stories with Your Travel Photography, this Saturday from 1-4pm at The Camera Store lecture facility in Calgary.

Location: Unit 210, 3060 9th Street SE Calgary, AB

Date & Time: Saturday November 1st, 2014 1-4pm

Tickets : Must be purchased in advance on The Camera Store website - http://www.thecamerastore.com/6928-Telling-Stories-with-Your-Travel-Photography.aspx

Travelling with your camera, you're experiencing the positive emotions of fascinating places, and all kinds of subjects that are new to you. As memorable as this can be, sometimes the photographs made along the way don't fully capture the spark of what you saw and felt. Perhaps the photos seem a little too much like casual, isolated snapshots, rather than chapters in the story of your journey.

Travelling with your camera, you're experiencing the positive emotions of fascinating places, and all kinds of subjects that are new to you. As memorable as this can be, sometimes the photographs made along the way don't fully capture the spark of what you saw and felt. Perhaps the photos seem a little too much like casual, isolated snapshots, rather than chapters in the story of your journey.

If you would like to improve the visual storytelling of your travel photography, join professional photographers Peter Carroll and Royce Howland. In this presentation, they'll present some key ideas and illustrate them with examples from their own work. Some of the ideas they'll share:

- Finding the essence of your subject
- Asking key questions to make your photographs more engaging
- Keeping your gear simple
- Improving your visual vocabulary -- stronger individual photographs
- Telling your stories within a frame, and with a body of work

As a bonus, 4 copies of e-books valued at $15 each will be given out as door prizes. 
Prize winners can choose from the following 2 titles:
Photographing Edmonton, by Peter Carroll 
Arizona! People & Places by Royce Howland & Peter Carroll___

Whatever the estimated travel time is between two points, I think the safe bet when a photographer is travelling is at least one and a half times that. I enjoyed a few photo stops on my recent drive home from Cypress Hills where I was conducting final on location prep for the workshop I am co-leading with +Royce Howland  Sept 5-10. I was so far off the planned route the GPS voice said, "I give up. Do whatever the hell you want. You are obviously not listening to me!"

We have one room left for our Storytelling in the Cypress Hills photography workshop based out of Historic Reesor Ranch. For info on the workshop and to snag yourself a spot go to http://blog.petercarroll.ca/?p=6242

When +Royce Howland  and I were recently driving the Gap Road in Cypress Hills doing final on location prep for our upcoming workshop, the light at the edge of a weather system did it's thing and we stopped to photograph the rolling landscape. While we were setting up we drew the attention of these horses. The light show only lasted a few minutes but it was magical and my equine models were all pro. 

We have one room left available for our Cypress Hills workshop running Sept 5-10. For info on the workshop and how to grab yourself the final spot go to http://blog.petercarroll.ca/?p=6242

It's the start of a long weekend here in Alberta and the forecast is for really nice weather. Wohoo! I look forward to taking in one of my favourite Edmonton festivals this weekend - Heritage Days. It's the 39th year of the festivals which features 60 pavilions, representing over 85 cultures. There's delicious cultural food, creative performances, crafts, clothing and artwork all shared in celebration of Canadian multiculturalism... oh and I also have a tee time booked for Sunday. I love the August long weekend!

On my way to Cypress Hills last week to do some final on location prep work for the workshop I am co-leading with +Royce Howland   Sept 5-10, I stopped in at Dinosaur Provincial Park. Forty dinosaur species have been discovered at the park and in 1979 it was listed as a World Heritage Site. Alberta has such a wonderful range of landscapes. Photography in this part of Canada is so much more than just the Rocky Mountains!

We have one room left for the Storytelling in the Cypress Hills workshop running September 5-10 out of Historic Reesor Ranch. All information about the workshop and how to register can be found at http://blog.petercarroll.ca/?p=6242
