Off-Camera Flash Workshop

* 3 spots still available for July’s Off-Camera Flash and Lighting Workshop – sign up here!

Off-camera flash lighting workshop in Ottawa
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.

Ottawa Senators v. New York Rangers | Game 4

I didn’t have time to post these images from the game until now. A bit late, but here they are.

Moving 7,000 lbs in 3 minutes | PhysXtreme

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!

Ottawa Senators v. Boston Bruins

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.
