Portrait – Ariana Brophy

Alright,

I had the pleasure of meeting Ariana Brophy years ago while she was on one of her many table tennis-esque journeys across Canada. Ariana is an Edmonton based multi disciplinary musician who has toured all over Canada. Recently she was nominated for Female Artist of the Year in the Edmonton Music Awards (so she’s kind of a big deal)! When she’s not touring she’s probably organizing some amazing grass roots community music event or drinking copious amounts of tea.

Recently we found ourselves in the same cities twice over the course of a couple weeks. So naturally, cameras were involved (disposable and the digital variety). Enjoy!

Personal – Walking the Great Glen Way

Alright,

Starting to chip away at my images from my recent trip to Scotland and Iceland. Thought I’d start off with a Timelapse of the 127km walk I did with my Dad all the way across Scotland on the Great Glen Way. Don’t worry, it’s less than 2 minutes (it took us 6 days).

All of these were shot about every 5-30 minutes on the trail with a GoPro HERO 4. You can see towards the end I get a little more trigger happy and that smooths out the motion a little more (hope you didn’t get too car sick). Stay tuned for more images!

Personal – Fogcouver

Alright,

I’m going to walk across Scotland with my Dad in April so… in a bout of temporary insanity/inspiration from the recent foggy weather I decided walking around Vancouver would be a good idea… now you’re probably thinking… yes, yes I walk around Vancouver too… well that dear reader is where you are wrong.

I started my walk in Railtown and then walked over both the Second Narrows and Lions Gate Bridge until I landed myself back where I started. According to Google Maps (after some digital kung fu trying to convince it that YES, yes in fact I’m going to be making this trip all on foot) this clocks out to approximately 25.1 km. The good news is that the path we’re taking in Scotland isn’t quite as lengthy and it’s broken up over a week. Regardless, a good dry run for packing around camera gear and testing out my galavanting shoes.

Now on to the images, if you’ve followed my work before you know I’m a PRETTY big fan of a shallow depth of field. This fog gave a really cool element of compressing the scene, you can see the results below…
