Steveston Mooring - http://www.grantmurrayphotography.com/

Dedicated to my Seattle BFF +dene' miles on her birthday. :-)

This is a 30 second exposure of an old mooring in Steveston, which is a great little fishing village in Richmond, British Columbia. The rocks in the foreground cooperated to form a great crescent shape and helped to frame the image naturally...timing is everything :-)

I used a 10 and a 3 stop ND filter, and stacked a 3 stop soft grad ND filter, to get the right level of contrast in the clouds and water.

Steveston is a really great little place to visit, with awesome fish and chips, if you stay away from the touristy spots :-)


I used a 10 stop and 3 stop ND filter and a 3 stop hard grad ND filter, to get the right level of contrast and detail in the clouds, reflections and water.

Astoria Bridge 1 - http://www.grantmurrayphotography.com

I was in Oregon for two weeks over August into September this year for a family getaway. My wife took pity on me and encouraged me to go out and spend a bunch of time doing my photography. For anyone with a baby, you will know that free time and "me" time isn't in abundant supply.

I have seen so many images of Astoria Bridge, so trying to create something unique isn't easy...anyhoo, this is my contribution to the burgeoning supply of Astoria Bridge images...I hope you like it.

I used a 10 stop and 3 stop ND filter, plus a 3 stop hard grad ND filter, to get the right level of contrast in the sky, water and around the bridge and pilings.

The techie stuff:

Sony A850 D-SLR

Crescent Beach Pier 3 - http://www.grantmurrayphotography.com

View LARGE here: http://www.grantmurrayphotography.com/Landscapes/i-xz48NHB/A

This is a 288 second exposure of the pier at Crescent Beach, in Surrey, BC, in late December 2013.

This is a great pier at Crescent Beach, which is a photographer's paradise, if the weather Gods play nicely.

I waited until high tide and a low sun position, to go and shoot this pier, to ensure that I had the end results I wanted...I'm really happy with the results.

Very cool to be included in volume three of this amazing Plus One Collection project for such a positive initiative. Thanks a million +Ivan Makarov, +Andy Lee and team. Please donate to this worthy cause provided on the link I have shared and let's get this moving.

Announcing the list of artists who's work will be included in Plus One Collection print book

And now what many of you have been waiting for - announcing the list of artists who's work will be included in the print book #PlusOneCollectionIII  

Link -> http://www.photographersforgood.com/Plus-One-Collection/Plus-One-Collection-III-List-o (Tip: use CTRL+F to see if your name is there to save time)

It's always a hard task to pick the photos because there are so many amazing ones that we just can't include because we have limited space in the book. Any judge can testify to you of that. We had seven capable judges this time around who went through every submission and we picked the best 285 or so for the book based on the final rankings. 

But what we decided to do to compensate for this is to release a poster that will have everyone's submission posted. You can order that poster on Indiegogo page as well - https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/plus-one-collection-iii/x/2020311

As with the book, all net proceeds from the sale of the poster will go to Saving Eliza fund. 

What's next? Keep spreading the word about the fundraising campaign! We still need to raise $25,000 before the book can go to press. And if you can contribute, please do. ___Very cool to be included in volume three of this amazing Plus One Collection project for such a positive initiative.

Check out the 16 stop #firecrest +Formatt-Hitech IRND filter I just received a couple of days ago!! A huge thanks to +Rod Clark and the awesome folks at Formatt-Hitech for stepping up their game and making the world beating, neutral as hell, Firecrest IRND filters. 16 stops in one filter is a big enough achievement, but making it as neutral as they have is mind blowing!! I have been testing it over the last couple of days and am thrilled with the results. Go and grab yourself one from the Formatt-Hitech website, you won't be disappointed.

All in all, a great day day out and I'm really happy with how this image turned out. The conditions really helped to minimize distractions in the composition.

Chicago sure has a whole lot of awesome architecture (BIG understatement). This image was created in an alleyway somewhere downtown. The weather was hot and humid, but the profuse sweating was totally worth it!!

This is a 288 second exposure of the pier at Crescent Beach, in Surrey, BC, in late December 2013.

This is a great pier at Crescent Beach, which is a photographer's paradise, if the weather Gods play nicely.

I waited until high tide and a low sun position, to go and shoot this pier, to ensure that I had the end results I wanted...I'm really happy with the results.

This image was created on a gloriously foggy day in late December 2013, out at Iona Beach near the Airport. The added bonus was that it had snowed the day before, which added a little something extra to the jetty. I timed the tide to reveal a branch on a log in the foreground. On the left is the jetty, which is about 5km long and is a favorite of Vancouverites to walk to the end and back...good times!!

Ambleside Pier 5

View LARGE here: http://www.grantmurrayphotography.com/Landscapes/i-fxq5jTn/A

About time I got around to posting to +Olivier Du Tré's awesome #minimalmonday theme.

This was an image 3 years in the making. Ambleside pier has Stanley Park, UBC, etc. behind it and is a distracting mess in terms of compositions, unless of course there is thick fog. Fortunately, this occurred one Saturday morning in December 2013 and I finally was able to make my vision come to life. Patience really is a virtue and is seriously underutilized in this fast paced world of ours.

Happy Monday everyone.

P.S. Wishing I was with my brother from another mother +Nathan Wirth on his trip through Oregon...have fun, my dear friend.

This was an image, created at Crescent Beach in BC, just before the end of last year. The birdie was a well behaved model and stayed pretty still for over 3 minutes on top of the yield sign. It's a great place for creating minimalist images, when the clouds are thick enough to obscure the horizon.

Aquatic Park Pier 2 - www.grantmurrayphotography.com

I am still working my way through the images I created in California back in August this year, but am making some progress, finally.

This was image created whilst hanging out with my Bay Area homies +Steve-Maxx landeros  and +Nathan Wirth. Incidentally, two finer and more talented young men you would struggle to find anywhere else on this planet!! The Aquatic Pier is very curvy and cool and makes for a great subject. I had a 2-1 crop in mind when I shot this and the fog definitely played its part in removing the distracting horizon.

This is a 55 second exposure of Ogden Point Breakwater in Victoria on Vancouver Island.

I finally got round to processing this image, over two years after I shot it. I feel my processing has finally caught up with my vision, which along with composition, makes the holy photography trinity :-)

Happy 2014 everyone!!

Iona Beach Reeds 1 - www.grantmurrayphotography.com

It's nearly the end of 2013 and I finally managed to combine the right conditions and tide levels at Iona Beach to create my most minimal image ever. It was foggy, which completely shrouded the horizon, giving me the perfect opportunity to create an image this simple, with no distractions. I'm so glad I went out and stood in the rain, it was totally worth it.

This is of course for #minimalmonday curated by the amazing Mr. +Olivier Du Tré.

All the best for 2014 everyone.

Vaillancourt Fountain 3 - http://www.grantmurrayphotography.com

This is a 30 second exposure of the infamous Vaillancourt Fountain on the Embarcadero in San Francisco, California.

I was in San Francisco for a conference in early May and had the opportunity to spend a wonderful day with my good friends, +Nathan Wirth  and +Steve-Maxx landeros. This fountain is the source of much derision and debate. On the whole it is pretty damn ugly, but when isolated from certain angles, with the right light, it has a certain undeniable beauty. The water isn't running very often either, so I got lucky on the day I met up with my homies.

Astoria Bridge 1 - http://www.grantmurrayphotography.com

I was in Oregon for two weeks over August into September this year for a family getaway. My wife took pity on me and encouraged me to go out and spend a bunch of time doing my photography. For anyone with a baby, you will know that free time and "me" time isn't in abundant supply.

I have seen so many images of Astoria Bridge, so trying to create something unique isn't easy...anyhoo, this is my contribution to the burgeoning supply of Astoria Bridge images...I hope you like it.

I used a 10 stop and 3 stop ND filter, plus a 3 stop hard grad ND filter, to get the right level of contrast in the sky, water and around the bridge and pilings.

Lost Lake 3 - www.grantmurrayphotography.com

This image was created on the shore of Lost Lake in Whistler, British Columbia.

It was a glorious Sunday afternoon in September 2012 and the weather Gods really were kind to me that day. It had been 35 degrees Celsius with blue sky for 4 days, which made my then 8 month pregnant wife a very unhappy camper. Thankfully the heat finally broke on the Sunday and the high was 16 degrees Celsius, which made being outside a pleasure.

The blurred shape in the centre of the image is a deck in the lake that people can swim out to and sit/stand/lie on. The water is really cold, but it doesn't seem to stop people...crazy Canucks :-)

British Columbia really is a special part of the world to live in, with so much beauty and diversity in every direction. I really feel blessed to call this place home (technically I call... more »

Davenport Pier 3 - www.grantmurrayphotography.com

I am working my way through the images I created in California back in August this year. I injured my shoulder, slipping on some rocks when I was there and it is only now coming right...fun times.

There are a small handful of folks in this world that I categorize as kindred spirits and lifelong friends, with boundless amounts of kindness and patience. +Steve-Maxx landeros and +Nathan Wirth are two such incredibly talented individuals. They were such amazing hosts and gave up a loooot of their personal time to hang out with me and drive me all around California. I get to know them better every time I'm out there and our friendship deepens with each visit. Words cannot express my gratitude for your kindness, friendship and artistic inspiration, Steve and Nathan, I feel truly blessed!!

Steveston Mooring - http://www.grantmurrayphotography.com/

Dedicated to my Seattle BFF +dene' miles on her birthday. :-)

This is a 30 second exposure of an old mooring in Steveston, which is a great little fishing village in Richmond, British Columbia. The rocks in the foreground cooperated to form a great crescent shape and helped to frame the image naturally...timing is everything :-)
