POTD 15.08.19 - Leuty Light

One of the great pleasures of living beside the beach is the ability to get out there on a moments notice. When I see the sky lighting up like this it’s just a hop skip and a jump to get to a good viewing point. Getting out as often as possible is the hardest part.

POTD 15.07.19 - Close Encounter With an Elephant Calf

Here is one of the most special animal encounters I’ve ever had in my life.

This is a two week old elephant calf. It isn’t a typical sighting to see the calves out in the open like this. Usually the mother and other females hide the calves away in the bush until they are big enough to not be threatened by predators as well as other male bull elephants. While we observed this group from a safe distance the females surrounded the baby and made some pretty intimidating growls to let us know not to come any closer. To my girlfriend and I, every one of these moments in Udawalawe National Park was new and amazing but for our guide who had 10 years of experience guiding folks through the park not a lot got him visibly excited, but this moment got him pretty giddy. What a privilege it was to see this baby up close.

POTD 22.01.19: Snow Day Toronto

Here are a few images taken during the big snow storm we had a couple days back. I’m so happy to have some winter weather in the city.

2018 Season coming to an end

Just like that, another season has come and gone at Woodbine. It's been a great year for me as an EFP videographer with Woodbine Entertainment. When you're working hard and enjoying what you do, time seems to go by all too fast. It feels like just yesterday we were shooting promotions for The 159th Queen's Plate, and now the action at the track is coming to a close. It's always a good idea to take some time to slow down and think about everything that happened over the last year, so I decided to do just that. I grabbed the slow motion camera (SONY FS7 for those who are curious!) and went out for a day of shooting on the grounds. It was the perfect way to reflect back on the 2018 season.

Cheers to all my friends and colleagues at Woodbine!
