Mount Pleasant Cemetery

Photographing cemeteries fascinates me. On one hand they are a quiet place to take some pictures or try out a new camera or piece of gear, and on the other hand there’s the sheer beauty of them. I have an ongoing project to photograph some of the relics left behind to commemorate someones life. The objects left behind…

Toronto Film Shooters Meetup – Spring 2017

This past Saturday my friend Paul and I attended the Toronto Film Shooters Meetup. This is a group of dedicated film photographers that meet every 3 months of so to do a photo walk in the Toronto area.

I jumped at the opportunity. So a week and a half ago, another friend Paul and I…

Detroit Lions Game

Back in November, three friends and I embarked on a weekend adventure to see the Detroit Lions play the Jacksonville Jaguars.
