Celebrating the Spirit of Haiti

January 14, 2016  •  Leave a Comment


Every year, January 12 is a day to pause and remember all of the people lost in the 2010 earthquake in Haiti.

Since then I have been fortunate enough to travel to Haiti each year with the St. Boniface Haiti Foundation (SBHF). I have witnessed amazing progress and captured the life of the beautiful people in a new photo book called Faces of Hope.

Faces of Hope honors and celebrates the resilient spirit of the people of Haiti. It is now available on Amazon and 100% of the proceeds goes directly to SBHF Hospital and the people who desperately need it. Please click on the link for more info or to order your copy today.

Nature in Motion with the Nikon D600

Nature in MotionTaken with the Nikon D600, this time-lapse depicts our rapidly changing environment.

 

During my extra time in Kirkfield, Ontario this summer I decided to start experimenting with time-lapse photography using the Nikon D600.

 

Commencing this challenge meant a lot of experimentation, late nights and really, really early mornings running into Black Bears and Coyotes along the way to retrieve the camera.

 

It always amazes me, the amount of wilderness we live in and their presence tells me that we are intruding on their domain, especially these creatures that own the dark mysterious night.

 

It's been an amazing summer shooting for Camp Kirk in Orillia, Ontario Canada. I'm so happy to have had the opportunity to live and work with some very passionate people, and I've met so many inspiring kids over the last few months. What I have learned is: Kids at Camp Kirk (and everywhere in the world) don't have disabilities, they have abilities and can reach beyond any challenge presented to them, giving them the opportunity and encouragement to shine.

 

And wow, did they shine! Over 20,000 photos and 600 video clips were captured, putting the Nikon D600 through it's paces.

The children's beautiful faces, spirit and determination have inspired me to push my limits as a human and photographer. 


I don't usually get feedback but I'd like to share some comments:

It's been a tough gig (and I loved every second of it), now bring on a hot shower! 

Looking forward to what the future may bring in the world of photography.
