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.

NIKON D5 & D500- MY THOUGHTS

maxresdefault

So thanks to Vistek Canada (vistek.ca) and Nikon Canada, I was able to check out both these amazing bodies … the D5 retail ready and D500 Pre-Retail so there are things that may change. The D5 releases March 24th and D500 sometime in April 2016.

From the get go to major changes just a lot of improvements on there prior body. That said the two things that stuck out for me was the AF system and the ISO ratings.

The Auto focus options just demolishes what came before, smarter and more adaptive just bananas yes I said bananas. The ISO rating goes up all the way to 3.28 Million ( most people will never go that high unless your doing recon for the army or surveillance for the police or your James Bond ) but the noise and details in the high native ISO ratings up to ISO10000 was ridiculous. The D5 is a 20.8mpx FX camera.

I’m not a video guy but both bodies do 4K UHD and downsampled if needed.

For my needs the D5 would be an amazing upgrade from my current D5 if I was looking to upgrade, Ill wait til the D6 or D7 comes out.

ALIYA JASMINE – SCARS AND BIRTHMARKS

Working with Aliya Jasmine is always amazing, love her energy and enthusiasm, she’s so much fun to work with. So when she told me about her concept I was so down. Our shoot was one that was very close to her heart, it allowed her to show herself for who she is,  no photoshop,  just her raw in the wilderness. AJ is a role model to many young girls and this shoot will definitely help instill confidence in many.
