Last month a group of photographers took my off-camera flash and location lighting workshop at Ottawa Studio Works presented by Harry Nowell Photography Inc. Each student had a different experience level and wanted to get something different out of the three-day learning and light workshop. The first day was spent reviewing, talking about and deconstructing some of my photography in order to get their brains popping. The second day we spent shooting Krystaal (the beauty seen above) after choosing their light modifier out of a hat. The next weekend we met up again and discussed the images they made during their week off – the goods, bads and uglies.
I didn’t have time to post these images from the game until now. A bit late, but here they are.

The New York Rangers’ Brian Boyle probably has the most hated face in Ottawa after scoring the game winning goal during their NHL Eastern Conference quarter-final playoff hockey game at Scotiabank Place in Ottawa April 16, 2012.
Strength and fitness coach Shane Miller asked me to come in and shoot at PhysXtreme, his new training centre in Gatineau, Quebec, and I asked him to move 7,000 lbs. of equipment to the other side of the room because I liked the light better. Then I setup a video camera to record the ordeal and went for lunch. Enjoy!
During a little pre-playoff match-up, the Boston Bruins throughly spanked the Ottawa Senators even though their three top players stayed at home with their feet up. It looks like it will be a quick first round exit for the poor Ottawa Senators.

Former Canadian diplomat Robert Fowler in Ottawa March 22, 2012. On December 14, 2008, Fowler, acting as the UN Secretary General’s Special Envoy to Niger, was kidnapped by Al Qaeda, becoming the highest ranked UN official ever held captive. He will soon be returning to Africa for the first time since his release. Fowler has also published a book about his capture entitled A Season in Hell. Photo by Blair Gable for the Toronto Star

On my 30th birthday I turned our living room into a studio to photograph my 2 year old son Liam with a woollen yellow toque that I wore 30 years ago.
