Port Hope Beach Through a Pinhole

On a recent photo excursion to Port Hope, I brought along both my Crown Graphic 4×5 and my new Holga 120WPC. I loaded up the pinhole camera with a couple rolls of Ultrafine Extreme 100 and mounted the camera on a tripod and made exposures anywhere between 4 and 10 seconds. I really like the…

Waterfront in Port Hope

For the past several years, I’ve gone out shooting on Remembrance Day. It’s one of those rare days where the kids are in school and I have off work, and it’s nice to get out an take some pictures and reflect on what Remembrance Day is all about. I’ve always gone to Cordova Falls, north…

I’ve always had a fascination with trains. Combining trains and photography seemed like a no-brainer. I’m surprised it’s taken me so long to put the two…

Port Hope

A couple weeks back, I got together with local photographers Pat Trudeau and Jay Callaghan and headed down to Port Hope for a morning of photography. Our original intent was to see fish moving up the fish ladder on the Ganaraska River, but when we arrived there wasn’t a fish in sight… so we headed downtown.…
