That's Entertainment


The Jam
I have recently been listening to 1st Wave on XM Radio in the car and at home. In fact, it's all I've been listening to since last September. I have all but completely abandoned commercial radio, save for CBC on occasion. The only gripe I have about this is that one has to pay for satellite radio. The whole idea of paying to listen to radio is something I still have to yet come to terms with. However, the music is so good from this era I think it's worth it. (Plus you have all the other channels to choose from) Because 1st Wave station fills the niche of "classic alternative from the '80s era" you tend to hear the same songs over and over...and over. But that's what you pay for. That's entertainment.

Ottawa Headshot - Dr. Brian MacDonald

Dr. Brian, who I am not related to, emailed me last week and requested a professional portrait for his speaking engagements, and his online profile. As a clinical psychologist, he co-hosts an on-line podcast with Dr. Giuseppe Spezzano called Family Anatomy. http://www.familyanatomy.com/

I was able to schedule his request quickly and provided the selected photos the next day. Again, with immediate feedback by showing the client photos as we shot, we were able to come up with an appropriate change of wardrobe and desired pose. This particular photo was taken with my 85mm lens but I also took some with my 105mm macro for a tighter crop. The 105 is increasingly becoming a go to lens for headshots. It's a great alternative to the amazing 85.

Susan Olding Skate -20 degrees

Susan Olding Skate -20 degrees
Author and educator Susan Olding came on a train from Kingston to get photographed by me a few weeks ago. It was pretty cold outside when we shot some action photos at my local skating rink -- but it was warm inside for the headshots we did. Incidentlally, she is a past customer of mine in that she uses one of my event photos as her official photograph on her website: susanolding.com

Susan Olding

Author and educator Susan Olding came on a train from Kingston to get photographed by me a few weeks ago. It was pretty cold outside when we shot some action photos at my local skating rink -- but it was warm inside for the headshots we did. Hopefully she will be using these photos for the promotion of her book and other use online.
