The power of photography.

A while back, the good folks over at local multimedia company Build Films asked me to write a piece for them about the power of photography.  This is the published article, crossposted here to my own website for your own reading:

Alone, witnessing winter’s first snowfall in Canada’s Yoho National Park.

Here at base camp, the waterfalls are running thinner than I’ve ever seen them; the glaciers above that feed them are returning to their frozen state.  …

    Oh, very nicely said! I fully agree that the camera retains for us moments that will never happen in the same way. This is the beauty of photography.ReplyCancel

    ? Well said David. Your view of the world is rather unique and refreshing – thanks for sharing it. I think it’s safe to say that I originally came for the photos but stay for the writing. ?ReplyCancel

Presenting…Pecha Kucha!

On February 23rd, 2017, I will be speaking at Pecha Kucha Winnipeg – an event organized by the Manitoba chapter of the Society of Graphic Designers of Canada.  Amidst simply trying to conquer my stage fright, I will be centering my talk around the subject of “Contemplating Contemplation”; weaving in stories and insights garnered from the several months of traveling around remote parts of western Canada by bicycle on my Pedal Powered to the West bike tour

Interview on making photographs in the cold.

David Quiring – a winter portrait.

A few weeks ago, I was approached by Feature Shoot to do an interview.  The topic of interest: making images in frigid temperatures – one of the more difficult environments to shoot in, and something I have a lifetime of experience with.

Appropriately, now that the temperature has plummeted, the article has been published!  Check out the stories and photographic tips I have shared here.…

The holidays are approaching – last call for greeting cards!

A friendly reminder to everyone that the calendar has flipped over to December!

Time is flying and the holidays are fast approaching.  To be completely honest, it snuck up on me this year.  We are just starting to see the first dusting of snow here in Winnipeg, and that is unseasonably late (to put it lightly).  Judging by the amount of print orders that have been coming through my inbox in the last few days, I think you all are more on top of it than me though.

Announcement: the Contemplative Creative podcast!

I am excited to announce a project I have been working at developing behind-the-scenes since January: Contemplative Creative.

    Hey David – I listened to your latest podcast. I am in. Your message is timely for me.ReplyCancel

The framing question.

Seeking out a frame for a purchased print?  A frequently asked question comes up from people who buy prints from me: “Where can I go to find a quality frame for my new print, without breaking the bank?”

It’s a question I’ve asked in the past too, and pursuing an answer has yielded frustrating results.  The lack of framing options out there never ceases to surprise me.  We all have homes and want to decorate them in ways that reflect our own personality,…
