Profile Frame

Newest Frame Line – now in!!!

I saw a new frame a few weeks ago and fell in love with it. Sooooo I have added another line to the in stock ready to pick-up frames that I carry.

PLUS they are priced wholesale so it is affordable to add on to a print order. If you resell your work it allows you to offer a professional finished priduct at great prices. If you are buying for yourself it allows you to finish your prints so they are ready to hang when you get home. All prints are mounted in the frames using professional flex points.

Prices and info here. They are on sale till at least the end of the month as well!!!

Lethbridge Photo Locations – Private

I have been asked to add to my list of Lethbridge photo locations. This list is for privately owned locations that you may not know of. These listings tend to change regularly. If you know of a place I missed or a place that does not allow pictures any longer drop me a note. I will also add locations just outside of town as I find them so guess this list is not just Lethbridge photo locations.

Many of the owners that I talked to have the same information to pass along. They allow pictures but their business is not just for pictures so they may not be available at all times. The further in advance that you call the better.

As these are private places some will allow nude shoots but ask first. Also some mention that they prefer to have smaller groups. If you are using for a wedding having the day spread out so there are not 50 people hanging around is better. Some also state that you can rent the entire place for private functions but the prices are more than just to use a part of the location.

You know you miss your kayak when…

I never had a chance to make it out a lot this past year on the kayak but with the warmer weather and the river breaking up it is SOOOOO tempting. I wonder if you can get a kayak with onboard heat?

So far I cannot complain about the winter as it has not been that cold, but the wind is keeping me in a lot more than I like. Today I went to the Lethbridge river bottom to see what birds and animals were around and not a lot of anything. When I saw how much of the river was open I was tempted to toss a kayak in and see how far I could get. I know I have to be patient but it looked so nice!

Watching this piece of ice make the run down the chute had me daydreaming of when the warmer weather hits and I can get out. I am not one for huge rapids but I do like some movement. One of my favorite half day trips is from the water treatment plant in Lethbridge to Pavan Park. Not a lot of excitement but it is a nice length that I can sneak away for it and not have to rush. There is also a fair amount of birds and wildlife that is in the river bottom so taking a camera allows me to get a few images at the same time.

Oldman river Lethbridge.  Not a kayak but I can hope!
Well it is not a kayak but at least a piece of ice made the run!

More exploring…..

Full moon on the rise

Headed out to shoot the (almost) full moon rising tonight. I thought that the cloud in the distance was too thick to get the moon coming out of the horizon. I was surprised to see the moon right on time. For shots like this a really cold night generally gives less distortion. But I can never resist the opportunity to shoot the rising moon when it is clear. Was nice to have the White Turtle III with me to use as a base of operations.

The Waxing Moon

A waxing moon is even more fun to shoot than a full moon. This time of year my taking of nature and wildlife pictures takes a back seat to printing and studio projects. I have been hoping for some northern lights to shoot but no go. I did have a chance to get out the other night to see the meteor shower but never had a camera with me. When I got back home the moon was so clear and bright that I had to take a few quick pictures.

CASA Lethbridge

A quick shoot of CASA Lethbridge, Alberta building last night. PERFECT light for the look I wanted to get!

The snow and the blue sky give the picture a cold look while the light from inside warms the building up.
