It’s Nice To Be Back

Back at Mont Sainte Anne, back to shooting another big event, back to camping. And back on the road after Monday’s misstep. Back to camping in a parking lot too! I had arranged camping in advance with the media relations person and she made sure things were taken care of. Unfortunately the camping area hadn’t …

What A Difference A Day Makes

I went to bed last night a little more relaxed than I had been earlier in the evening. Might have been the company; sitting around a kitchen table with Greg and Frank shooting the breeze was fun. Then again it might have been the tasty beer along with some 12 year old Aberfeldy scotch. The …

Off To A Rough Start

I’m headed to a couple of races I really enjoy, I’ve covered these since before having my Westy and the photos I have include the first World Cup victory by Geoff Kabush when he crossed the line in a very muddy race at Bromont.That race is no more (which is a shame, it’s a great …

The Canadian National MTB Championship Course

I went up to Hardwood Hills to shoot this about a week ago, it’s finally online at so I’m adding a direct link to it here as well. I also spent some time with race organizer Glenn Meeuwisse talking about the changes and the thinking behind them.

Air Time

I think everyone who knows me is very aware of which side of a camera I prefer to be on… every now and then something comes along that gets me on the other side of my spot. Outside of my comfort zone too, usually. Today was one of those days. I was asked earlier in …

Mariposa 2014 – Day 2

All I can say is that the second day was even better than the first, which had been amazing. It started with lots of coffee and socializing. Comparing notes from the day before and talking about what sets, acts and bands we all liked. Then we had a request from the organizers for a #BusesAtMariposa …

Mariposa 2014 – Day 1

This music festival started over 50 years ago and I’ve never been to it. When it started, people like Gordon Lightfoot and Bob Dylan were just finding their stride. And I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t know nearly enough about the who’s and what’s that make up the history of the festival. …

Stretching A Little

I’ve said all along that my focus is cycling, that combining my passions of photography and cycling is central to the thought of what I’m interested in. Well… Then writing came along. Still with a cycling focus but a big step out of my comfort zone (Andrea is my comma splice cop! I need one …
