Elevate the Arts — Taking Better Portraits Workshop with Gordon Ross — Comox Valley Photographer

As promised … here is an image of the lovely Savannah Eanes (thanks Savannah) from our May 5th  workshop at The Muir Gallery. We covered a lot of material in a short period of time, most of which was on the hand-out circulated that day. But in this particular image, I used a single light-source (a beauty dish) 45 degrees to the viewers right about 7′ off the floor. The camera settings were 160/f16/100 ISO and a flash white-balance. I […]

Hornby On The Rocks – Vancouver Island Photographer

If you’ve ever visited any of BC’s Gulf Islands, you may have seen rock formations like these… Hornby is one of my favourite Gulf Islands. I can spend hours wandering along its moody coastline at low tide. Pretty much the ideal island with its art galleries, wineries and a meadery. Yes, mead (honey wine). And it’s all doable by bicycle. I hope you like the image. Bye for now. Gordon Ross

Possible Worksite Violation

Check out these two images taken in Yangon (Rangoon), Burma. Barefoot, wouldn’t you know standing on old, weathered wood. I couldn’t stand to watch them any longer, so I don’t know if they made it down safely. Hopefully they replaced the bulbs with long lasting ones. You can check out more images from Burma here.

Zebras At The Waterhole

In the Serengeti, Tanzania, I had the opportunity to watch a herd of zebras at a waterhole. With predators on land (lions and leopards) and in the water (crocodiles), zebras are a nervous bunch and are constantly on the move. There is safety in numbers so the zebras move together, sometimes as if they were choreographed.  As they darted back and forth from the waterhole, I sat there with a long lens and shot away. During the dry season, you […]

After Dark Invitational

The event went off last Saturday night under snowy conditions. But then again, that has been the big story of Mount Washington this year — snow, snow and still more snow. The mid-mountain snow base at time of writing is 595 cm. Wow. Click here for gallery images. Falling snow can make flash photography tricky, but overall the camera captured some sweet acrobatics in the air. Dramatic would best describe this event, as these guys (and one woman competitor) book […]

Snow in the Beaufort Range, Vancouver Island

I took this shot the morning of January 22, 2011 just as the weather over the range was starting to change. For me, this photo is all about shapes and tones. The graphic banding in the clouds, the profile of the mountains and the pillows of snow are sublimely highlighted in black and white. If you are keen to purchase this image, I recommend ordering a larger format print (16×20 or larger) so that you can see the details of the […]

Shiny New Website Open For Business

The website is now open for business! There is so much to share, that I’m not sure where to begin. There are 49 photo galleries that can be accessed here. You can buy prints and download files. You can bookmark and share your favorite images. You can search for photos, check out my services and keep up with what’s going on in the studio. It’s definitely worth the time to poke around the galleries and check back regularly – because new images are frequently being […]
