I have the opportunity as my daughter gets older, and continues to play soccer, to shoot the sport with an ever increasing caliber of player. This provides me with more challenges and more rewards. While not overly dynamic or action packed, this recent shot is one of my favourite because of its simplicity.
One of my other hobbies is Cycling, and the fall brings with it the Cyclocross season. This sport originated in Europe (Belgium I believe) as a way for road cyclists to train in the off season. The easiest way to explain it is like 'light' mountain biking on road bikes with knobby tires. (an over simplification, I know). Cyclists ride laps over a variety of terrain, gravel, grass, pavement, mud, sand, etc and may have to dismount and carry their bikes over obstacles like stairs. I usually participate, but the first informal event of the season, had me using my camera instead of my bike.
Theatre New Brunswick has redesigned some of their space at there office on Whiting Road, and made it into a stellar 'black box' theatre! Their first show of the season was there at the beginning of September - You Play Beautifully. I had the opportunity to work a little differently this time, by shooting specific staged photos instead of the dress rehearsal. It was great!
What a great show! Ton's of laughs and a great performance once again. Hat's off to the TNB Theatre School Senior Musical Theatre group. It was a pleasure photographing the dress rehearsal.
I just wanted to share a great (and ongoing) series of interviews by my best friend Adam Pal. Please take the time to listen to (at least) a few of the conversations - truly informative and entertaining (and family friendly).
TNB's latest production was a 'workshop' at the Black Box Theatre at STU. There were some familiar faces on stage - and of course another great performance which captivated and informed the audience.
Another fantastic TNB young Company show, this time with an Aboriginal theme. A captivating story, certainly identifiable to youth, and great costumes and set to top it all off. A pleasure to photograph.
