I had the great opportunity to photograph Canada’s outgoing-Chief of the Defence Staff (CDS) General Walt Natynczyk in Ottawa for the Toronto Star a few days before he handed over command to Lt.-Gen. Tom Lawson.
Toronto Star writer Bruce Campion-Smith, General Walt Natynczyk, and yours truly.
I had my photo taken with the General back in 2009 as well, check it!
Blair Gable Photography moved out of the coffee shops 2 years ago and is now leaving home as well! I am very proud to announce that I am a photographer in residence at Third Floor York, Ottawa’s newest creative environment. BGP will remain as it was, it just has a fancy-ass new address. You can now find me at 1 York Street on the Third Floor. Come by for an cocktail anytime!
Third Floor York is home to a collection of creative professionals located at the corner of York and Sussex in Ottawa’s Byward Market. As the first studio of it’s kind in Ottawa, Third Floor York is a place that like minded creative professionals have come together to work collaboratively while retaining their own distinct brands. Ottawa photographers Blair Gable, Andrew Van Beek, Barbara Cameron, event planner Shannon Kennedy and cinematographers Reno Video use the studio space to work, shoot, meet.

I recently photographed Maygan Sensenberger (23), wife of Canadian Senator Rod Zimmer (69), at her home in Ottawa for Macleans Magazine. Sensenberger made headlines recently for causing a disturbance on a flight from Ottawa to Saskatoon. She has been attempting to break into the world of acting and modelling by appearing on the runway at Ottawa Fashion Week and playing the lead in a movie about a world run by women. You can read more of the story here.
Young social activists Brigette DePape and Ben Powless were the stars at the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (CCPA) annual David Lewis Lecture event in Toronto earlier this month. I photographed them in the Byward Market for the Toronto Star a few weeks ago.
Yesterday the CRTC denied Bell Canada Enterprises’ (BCE) proposed takeover of Astral Media citing that it would give them an unfair advantage over all other telecommunication companies in Canada.

These two Ottawans shared their stories of immigrating to Canada from their former Germany and Rwanda (respectively) with Macleans Magazine a few months ago, but I must have forgotten about them.
