Killick Family // Waterloo // Family Portraits

Paige (second from the left) contacted me to photograph her family, and said they’d like it to be near water. I was surprised when they agreed to hop right into the creek! The Killick family was super fun to work with, and totally game for any crazy idea I might have had. Photos taken on the hot hot spring afternoon of May 31, 2011.

andrea+chris // Canadian Clay and Glass Gallery // Waterloo Wedding // Part I

Congratulations to Andrea and Chris! This is a selection of some of my favourite shots from the day. I’ve split the collection up into two big  posts to give a good idea of the full wedding photo package; and this isn’t even 1/4th of the real deal. The ceremony was held in a little church in Elmira—very intimate. Special thanks to Ben Kane for doing a bang-up job second shooting. Jump to Part II.

Cobrinha vs. Shane Rice // Canada Sub X

From Wikipedia: “Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art, combat sport, and a self defense system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting. The art was derived from the Japanese martialart of Kodokan judo (which itself is derived from Japanese Jujutsu; the name Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is an homage to this origin) in the early 20th century. It teaches that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant by using leverage and proper technique—most notably by applying joint-locks and choke holds to defeat the other person. BJJ training can be used for sport grappling tournaments  and mixed martial arts (MMA) competition or self defense.”


Rubens “Cobrinha” Charles (pictured above) is one of the premiere grapplers in the world. Here he competes against Shane Rice (below), a tough grappler in his own right. Check out this really cool video of Cobrinha in action at the 2008 World Championships.
