prairie storm

well, it was obvious that since i had just painted my deck......... some weather would come in. so i grabbed the canon and fired up the yaris/went to the high ground. this is the result. (a little weak technically but.......... you know..... what i see and how i see it).

prairie cowboy portrait

this is a portrait of a fella named gordie. i was working on a portfolio project for my company web site awhile back / we were experimenting with a technique called cross processing (not cross dressing / that comes later in the career).

as i recall, we shoot color neg., and process E6, or shot trannie, and processed C41. anyways, some one out there will correct me, i'm sure. ( i had a staff back then). and so, in spite of photoshop.... pros have always done something for effect / mostly in the darkroom, and with matte knifes, or dye transfers , inks etc. etc.

for those that may not have seen my web site, click here. i'm getting geared up for a re-do / any suggestions??

home on the range

i came across this cover shot i did for tourism saskatchewan awhile back. the fun part of this job was meeting the cowboys. i will be heading out their way in a month or so to photograph a round up. i shot a couple last year, and it is quite the adventure. my favorite shot was a portrait of Odin, which you can see by scrolling to the bottom of this blog.
