… and why I’ve been a bit remiss with my blog posting… Aside: Snapknot is hosting a contest where you can win a Canon 5D Mark III or a D800. These are $3500 camera bodies. You should enter now! I don’t know what the weather feels like where you are living, but fall has arrived
Every once in awhile you just need some inspiration. For me such inspiration regularly comes from the internet (pinterest, blog posts, random browsing, facebook), from spending time with friends, from photo walks, from magazines, from a sunset, from lots of places, but yesterday I realized there is so much more. I attended a photography workshop
Is there a little voice in the back of your head telling you that you want to be a photographer? I hear you. I had that too! I first heard the little voice when my friends’ wedding pictures were like nothing I’d ever seen before. So artistic. So creative. So … awesome. . A year
I’m in Antarctica until February 7th! This post was pre-programmed! You want to know what I love. Really good portrait & wedding photographers. And I’m pretty sure your not surprised about that, given my current employ as a wedding photographer. And in the female spirit of Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s posts. Women. Again. I’m starting to
The last stop on our summer trip was Barcelona. It was my first time in Barcelona. My first time in Spain. I fell in love. In fact, it reminded me somewhat of Buenos Aires. Where I will be in just over two weeks. Be still, my heart. If you are wondering where that awesome terrace
Our third stop on our summer trip was our week at the Chateau Ventenac in (surprise, surprise) Ventenac, near Narbonne. Food. Friends. Wine. Day trips to markets and to Carcassone. What could be better?
Bokeh (boh-kay) is the way that the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light. You might hear people describe it as “those light spots” or “those blurry lights”. You can read all sorts of neat stuff about bokeh here, here, and here if your technically inclined. What I’m going to talk to you about
Our next stop on our summer trip was the Loire Valley. Just a day. I was incredibly sick. But it was as beautiful as I remembered. Chambord. Chenoceau. Little car. Amazing day.
This post is sort of like a double whammy. Not only do you get sweet New York Travel Tuesday photos, but you get to see how the first roll of B&W went! Exciting, right? On September 30 – October 2, the Suter kids went for a weekend in NY. We stayed in the Syncapse pad
One of the things on my 30-before-30 list was to get new business cards for my photography business! So I was very, very excited when I discovered these templates for mini MOO cards. I love the mini cards. They are just a little bit different than your traditional business card, and they make me stand
This past weekend I was in San Francisco.. I shot a wedding and an engagement session. It was amazing. As you can probably tell if you’ve been reading carefully, I’ve got big news. News I’m dying to share. I don’t know whether I’m going to share this news tonight or tomorrow morning, but it is
Remember about 6 weeks ago I told you about my new film camera? The Nikon FM, a fully manual camera. This camera is not only manual exposure, but manual focus. I know that I’m comfortable shooting manual exposure, because I shoot almost entirely in manual during photoshoots and at weddings. One of the really cool
On Sundays, the North Market at the St. Lawrence Market in Toronto is host to a weekly antique market. There are lots of expensive antiques, but if you dig and dig there are lots of deals to be had! Today I got some of the best. deals. ever. Period. (Ok, well, maybe not compared to
I’ve spent a big part of today working on my “home” on the web! As you probably know, I’ve got this personal blog, I’m a wedding photographer and have a blog / site for that, and I have a (for the moment inactive) travel blog (that I have also just updated). I was feeling somewhat
This photo was taken on February 7, 2009 in Valparaiso, Chile. You can tell from the hubs’ expression that he was less than impressed with my sweet photography skillz. Little did he know, all that time trying to get the perfect angle would result in a super sweet picture. And in fact, this became one
