Haroldtown Conservation Area

A couple weeks back, I was on vacation while the rest of the family was either at work or daycare, so I thought I’d visit Haroldtown Conservation Area for some mountain biking and hiking to test out a new camera. After going over the handlebars on a steep rocky section of trail, I decided to…

A Day Outside

A couple weeks back we decided to get out of the house for the day. The boys were getting a bit stir crazy so we braved the heat and went for a hike on the trails at Trent University before going to the Riverview Park and Zoo. Below are a couple shots from the day.…

Portrait of Keith

Taking portraits of people is something I’ve always wanted to get into but have personal issues with. What if I ask someone and they refuse or give a funny look and walk away? What happens if I mess up a shot and make them look different from what they (or I) expected? With one sheet…
