Black and White Portraits of Italy

Black and White Portraits of Italy This summer while travelling through the north of Italy I shot a series of street portraits of ordinary people doing every day things which I called “Portraits of Italy”. #portraitsofitaly Photos were taken as I travelled through the following areas: Milan and Lago Maggiore, Aosta, Genoa, Cinque Terre, Tuscany, Florence, Modena and Venice.  I converted all of these to black and white as I find it focuses you in on the person instead of the colours and the surroundings. Lago Maggiore area A drive up the east side of Lago Maggiore with stops in Arona, Stresa and Canobia.   Our first aperitivo in Italy was in Arona.  (Note to self, you don’t like Campari!)   Aosta We drove from Castelletto sopra Ticino where we were staying to the Italian side of Mont Blanc.  We stopped in several places along the way and spent some time walking in the town of Aosta.   Genoa A quick visit to the boardwalk in Genoa while we were driving through.  Only stopped for one night. Cinque Terre …

Washington State Photography Road Trip

Washington State Road Trip A quick 30 hour, 800 mile photographic Washington State road trip while attending the Mozcon 2015 conference.  It’s amazing the variety in landscapes and terrain you can see in such a short time.  I was very impressed by the terrain in the Palouse and the amazing coulees.  You go from mountain to scrubland to almost desert like conditions in no time at all.   The area around Diablo Lake was really nice, the colour of the glacier fed lakes is astounding.  I did make it up to Mount Rainier but didn’t get any clear shots as the head of the mountain was in the clouds all day. Road Trip Map I mapped out my route on google maps.  You can see the map here:  Road Trip Map. I basically picked up a rental car on Saturday around 3:30 pm and got back to drop it off around 9 pm on Sunday.

Photography laws in Canada

Canadian Photography Laws Photography laws in Canada are a huge grey areas when it comes to the application, admission and implementation on civilians. Most of the laws that will be mentioned in this article do not even directly relate to photography but can be and may be associated to the same in a court of law. While most of the laws do not, in part, mention photography, they give a general concept under which photography can be said to lie, which is why they are included. It would be important to note that not all photography laws in Canada are consistent. These laws may be specific to a certain province and/or municipality and you should therefore check and confirm whether they apply to you. All the views and opinions represented here are not for legal purposes but are an recap of my own. You should therefore not use them as legal advice or quote them in legal proceedings. You may however use them freely for research and to give yourself a general concept of what …
