“Sweet Brotha Numsay”, aka K. Dors complained that he wasn’t on my photoblog. Now he is! Scarborough, 2010.

This is a publicity still that I shot for a friend.

JB aka “John Boy”. John and I have been great friends for over twenty years. I wanted to get a photo of him before he lost all of his hair. Done! Taken at Michigan International Speedway. Shot handheld with a Canon EF50mm at f1.8, ISO 400.

This guy’s tattoo reminded me of Nicholas Cage from the film Ghostrider. Shot handheld with a Canon EF70-200mm at f4.

This guy gets top marks for building his entire outfit around a Winston Cup Series seat cushion. Shot handheld with a Canon EF70-200mm at f4.

My good friend Paul. Not the easiest guy to photograph because he’s programmed to make a goofy face when he sees a camera pointed at him. That’s where burst mode at 3 fps comes in handy on the Canon 5D. Smile!

My friend Andy is going to hate this photo because it will make him feel old and today is his birthday. Twenty years from now he’ll thank me for taking this photo, then he will long for the days that he look liked this.

My friend Lisa is married to Andy. She hates seagulls but she has a good heart.

My mother used to call my friend Dave, “Smiley”. I can’t imagine why.

She who must be obeyed is my wife and I didn’t give her that title. It’s how she sometimes refers to herself. She never lets me take her photo, so when she had her hair done and asked if I would take her her picture, I almost fell off my chair.

Daniel wanted to know what he’d look like with a few stitches. He’s not nearly as accident prone as I was.

Having your head split open is the easy part. Waiting for 6 hours in the ER is the hard part.

My friend Paul was trying to sell a few tickets to this scalper in Detroit. I love the guy’s ‘look’. He reminds me of Snoop Dogg. When Paul told him how much he was selling his extra tickets for, Snoop complained and said he has kids to feed. Classic.

Daniel was sitting in my office in front of the window when I took this photo. The blinds were half open casting the shadows on his face. He doesn’t always look this serious. You should see him when he’s singing along to “Woman” (by Wolfmother) while listening his iPod.
Posted on October 9, 2007
I asked Daniel to take a photo of me with a 50mm lens. Not bad for an 8-year-old. This was taken in my new office.

Paul Nethercott isn’t looking at birds or a plane. He’s just disappointed with the put he just made.

The Muskoka Woods mascot was taking a break. Seems that it gets pretty hot in that suit on a spring day.

Another one of the Paul’s that I know. He’s never this serious or intimidating, which is what I found interesting about this photo.

I recently took a photo of a friend. At the time, he felt like a ‘bag of hammers’ so I told him that I would take his photo again, when he felt better. The next day we went back to Primanti Brothers and I took this picture. Okay, so we didn’t really go back to Primanti Bros but I went back into Photoshop and did a little post-production. Much better!

One of the Paul’s I know, waiting for a sandwich at Primanti Brothers in Pittsburgh, PA. Taken with a 50mm lens, handheld, at f2.8.

My friend Dave, trying to outrun a golf cart.

My friend Dave almost looks like a professional golfer. No comment on where his ball ended up.

WVU has great fans. Whenever the Mountaineers get a first down, the fans raise their hands in unison, chant, “Woo Woo Woo”, clap once, point forward with one hand and yell, “first down!” Hope I got that right.

A WVU football fan at last Thursday’s game in Morgantown , WV. Just look at that hair! Impeccable.

Sacha Baron Cohen, aka Borat at the Ryerson Theatre in Toronto. When he arrived on the red carpet it was complete chaos. This image is horribly cropped but it captures some of the excitement at the North American premiere for the film, Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan

They aren’t really the women of Kazakhstan but they did pull a cart, a donkey and Borat to the Ryerson theatre in Toronto. This was at the Borat premiere—part of the Toronto International Film Festival. Borat is in the gray suit to the right.

Sir Ridley Scott is in town to promote his latest film, A Good Year. I snapped this photo at the Borat premiere. If he isn’t Ridley Scott then he could pass for his twin.

He used to have two front teeth until a kayak on Lake Huron hit him in the mouth. They were loose anyway so no worries.

I think this image capture’s Daniel’s enthusiasm the most when it comes to posing for my photos.

Photo of my father using a 50mm lens which is great in low light. 1/1600s at f1.8, ISO 400.

Family wedding Gaithersburg, MD.

I’m not sure when or why I began calling my niece Opie but I like it. This was taken at a family wedding in Gaithersburg, MD. Look closely at her pupils and you can see some goofy guy taking her picture.

The step-daughter getting ready to go to the high school prom. Mirror shot. 1/30s at f2.8. 50mm. 400 ISO.

A future prime minister? I don’t think so but he thinks it would be pretty cool to run the country and tell people what to do.

I don’t know this guy’s name but I like the sound of Brolly Man. You can find him downtown Vancouver, BC. 1/320s at f4.5, ISO 100, 115mm, handheld.

Doesn’t this look painful? This is a friend of mine that I caught in the middle of a yawn. I think that a series of photos with people yawning would make for a great exhibition.

I overlooked this photo taken on Christmas Day of a family friend. The lens flare from the camera flash was a happy accident.

Daniel, otherwise known as Mini-Me. This was taken in the summer at my friend Dave’s place.

West Virginia state trooper M. L. Vance or Jim Carrey in Me Myself and Irene 2? I had to be discreet so this isn’t the greatest shot but next time I’ll be sure to have a better zoom lens.

A Buffalo Bills fan. I’m sure the rest of the Bill’s felt like this guy after their loss to the Atlanta Falcons.

East Carolina scores a touchdown. West Virginia barely won in a game that should have been a blow-out. Final score, 20-15.

The guy on the left was a press photographer with some really HUGE lenses. I was jealous.

5-year-old Daniel was testing out the Rebel XT on his dad who hoped he wouldn’t drop the camera. He didn’t.

And moments later, Daniel pulled yet another, long, sliding, skid.
