LOOKbetween

I just returned home from an incredible week in Virginia and environs, participating in the annual Look3 photo festival. This, the fourth year of the gathering, involves a meeting of the veterans and those aspiring to be such, where mentors such as National Geographic photographers mingle with young talent and dole out ideas and tips, not to mention some visual magic. This year it was a bit different than the normal event; instead of being a top-down format it was focused instead upon emerging artists and their input on what the future of photography holds. I was fortunate enough to have been invited.

Look3 was held at a rural location (Deep Rock Farm) near the town of Charlottesville. The city itself boasts a downtown promenade (where the festival is normally held) replete with murals of wildlife hung in the trees. Back on the farm, it was three days of sun and fun featuring a slideshow held on two evenings on a hill overlooking a lake, under the stars. Days consisted of battling the heat in said lake, watching England vs. USA in World Cup action and of course some workshops / chat sessions about business, publishing and storytelling. The organizers included LOOK3, BP, Nick Nichols, David Alan Harvey, Burn Magazine, National Geographic, Leica, Canon, LowePro, and Adobe, among others.

Please check out the LOOKbetween tumblr and check out some of the other photographers here. You will be blown away by their work!

Spring birds

This is the season where I usually have to put my camera away to focus instead on some biology and nature guiding work. That said, there’s often a chance to sneak out the big lens, because you never know when something colourful is going to brighten up a rainy spring morning.

You probably get the idea that I really enjoy birds. They are part of my career (with the biology and guiding) and offer an enjoyable distraction on the trail. Here’s a slideshow of some birds that have been kindly obliging in the past month and a half, migrating through, or nesting in Colorado, Ontario, Alberta and/or British Columbia. Keep an eye out in the latest Kootenay Mountain Culture magazine coming out tomorrow, where I finally get a chance to cross borders and publish a story of wildlife in a core outdoors magazine. It’s about migratory birds.
