Winnipeg Folk Festival 2015 – A retrospective.

Ah, the Winnipeg Folk Festival: a gathering around music, art, and community that pops up in a prairie field for five days every year.  Exactly two weeks from today the 2016 festival begins with the Crooked Brothers kicking things off on the main stage.  Spending time with good friends (both old and new), discovering new music, and happening by chance upon unexpected joys…I’m looking forward to another year barefoot in these fields as an official festival…

    Very cool! Captured the festival very well. I’m also getting excited, but a little bummed that media passes don’t get access to the campground. See you there?ReplyCancel

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.

For a while now the idea of turning a philosophical lens on the field of creativity has been percolating in my mind.  Given how I tend to navigate through life, it has been a natural part of my daily musings and activities, whether through my struggles and successes in the multimedia industry, or chats with friends and colleagues…

Life behind bars – Part 1: Solo in the Canadian Rockies.

This dream began in January of 2015: that is, to travel western Canada by bicycle.  I didn’t know where it came from; I had always been into cycling, but never like this.  The ultimate destination was one that has been on my radar for a while: the remote island of the Haida Gwaii (previously known as the Queen Charlotte Islands).  Travelling this way however is so much more than a destination – it is a serious journey, and filling in the route there and back …

    Thanks for sharing Lindsay! It makes me happy to hear that you found it inspiring – that’s one of the main reasons I picked up a camera in the first place; that is, to inspire people to get outside and embrace life. 🙂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,…

Reaching for the night sky.

Some of you might not know this about me, but back in the day I studied astronomy at the University of Manitoba.  There was of course the necessary prerequisite knowledge that we studied in the lecture hall, but as we got further into the program we were able to literally take our studies to the stars.

Twice a week I would head out with a team of students to the Glenlea Astronomical Observatory to log time on an immense telescope pointed at the dark night sky.  …

Announcement: New partnership with Offset for license management.

Winter in Winnipeg is dark and cold – a season that is characterized by a natural tendency to quietly retreat.  The seasonal cycle of change influences the way we live our day-to-day lives, and each season tends to strike a balance with its counterpart: long summer days contrast with long winter nights, and the new life of spring contrasts with the necessary death of fall.  So too are our lives influenced by our environment: summer encouraging extroverted…
