I took this shot for the Globe and Mail back on March 24th. The photo was a front cover shot / story about Lauren’s phenomenal accomplishments at the 2010 Whistler Para-Olympics. The story was entitled, Canada’s Golden Girl and can be viewed here, http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/british-columbia/canadas-golden-girl/article1511256/ The idea that we tried to convey was that she was on top of the world …. hence the photo on a mountain top, in this case atop Mount Washington, BC, Canada.

Canon International have lent me their latest gear (cameras and lenses) for the duration of the Olympics. Basically, as a pro Canon shooter (and Nikon offers a similar service as well), you can show up to the Olympics without any kit and shoot with the latest gear. Cool.
…they have installed these yellow pylons that make the lanes extremely narrow and they are absolutely memorizing at night especially in the glare of oncoming lights. Add a little water on the pavement and the surface becomes one long mirror …
I took this shot at Long Beach in Canada’s premier west coast park, Pacific Rim National Park. As you can see from the beach, you can walk for miles. You can also do handstands. I love this shot for its balance, if you’ll pardon the pun. And she held the handstand for quite some time.
