WE REMEMBER

Had the privilege of photographing and chatting with Maj. J. Estrela, an Army officer in the Royal Canadian Corps of Signals, this past Rememberance Day. Special thanks to Royal Canadian Military Institute for hosting us and Robert Baines of The NATO Assoication of Canada for helping me put this together. I am currently looking for funding for a project to photograph and document the stories of 400 veterans from across Canada. I hope this is the first portrait of many to come. Thank you Maj. Estrela for your time, service and sacrifice.

FINALLY GOT MY HANDS ON THE ELB1200s

So after a long wait, I finally got my hands on the Elinchrom‘s New ELB 1200s with a Pro and Action head.

From the jump, this is not your daddy’s Ranger RX. It’s light, it’s small and it’s super powerful. One thing I really like was that Elinchrom took time and designed the new ELB 1200s to survive photographers like me, they really went to town to weatherproof and create a durable product.

The heads themselves are impressive from design to weight. Sadly I couldn’t get my hands on a HS head but hopefully soon.

Check out some of the shots from my test shoot.

Special thanks to Vistek for lending me the ELB 1200s. Can’t wait to get a set of my own.
