Breaking out of a creative rut sometimes requires getting out of your comfort zone. Luckily my wife was heading to New York city for a business trip and I decided to tag along. I would get the typical touristy shots of towering modern buildings inter-playing with the city’s heritage, but what I really wanted to do was explore Manhattan at night. I don’t usually get a chance to experiment with night photography and this was a great opportunity.
Here are a few of my favorite photos that I have taken through my journey to become a better photographer. I love getting into situations that stretch my capabilities and learn what works and doesn’t work.
On a lovely fall day in October I had the wonderful opportunity to go on a hike with a family through the Apps’ Mills Nature Centre in Brantford, Ontario. Run by the Grand River Conservation Authority the 107 hectare property has a historic mill Flour and Grist Mill from circa 1841 with easy hiking trails through the woods. For family and engagement photography this location is really easy to work with and allows children and couples to doing things naturally without having to artificially set things up.
