Are you Fit ?

I have suffered with arthritis for many years and never thought about going to a fitness center until a friend suggested I talk to his trainer that may be able to help me with the pain I was in. You don’t associate weight training as something that could help arthritis sufferers well I am into year 3 and never felt so fit and PAIN Free in my life. When I had the opportunity to create portraits of some of my trainers I jumped at the chance as these are the people who keep me in the best shape ever.

Smart Phone photo Tip

The camera’s in our smart phones have come a long way and their ability to adjust to most light levels is amazing. Next time you are taking a photo on your smart phone and find that your exposure is not what you want try placing your figure over the area you want lighten and watch what happens. In the example below I wanted more detail in the boat but not over expose the skyline. Hope you have fun with this tip.


Mother Daughter Baby Sister on the Way

For one of our last fall family photo session’s we decided to go to the beach and the weather was perfect. Joel was due to deliver her second child so you keep thinking not today please and I did not want to place to much strain on her but she was great. Joel did deliver a healthy baby girl a few weeks later and both are doing well.

As a portrait specialist I am never sure who or were my next assignment may be and that is what makes my job the BEST. Recently while I was working out at my fitness centre the owners presented me with the opportunity to create some after images of one of their clients. With a lot hard work in a very short period of time Jacky went from a chubby young man to this very fit person you see here.
