The whole “stay local, stay apart” thing is getting to me, but there I was, on a recent sunny day in Stanley Park, not really in the mood for photography, but then on a trail a bit of fog rolled in, and what’s interesting (to me) is that I “knew” at the time I shot these that they were probably not that interesting as photographs, but in the three-dimensional world the light looked great.

FotoFilmic workshop

This fall I joined a ten other photographers in a workshop led by UK-based Simon Norfolk. It was originally intended to be an in-person class located on Bowen Island, which is a twenty-minute ferry ride from Vancouver. But the pandemic…you know. Because it migrated to being online, FotoFilmic, using Zoom, provided a great experience as photographers from London, Portland Oregon, Macau, and other cities interacted with one another. In addition to the fascinating conversations and lectures, each of us got an exclusive half-hour consultation on our future direction with him. 

And our conversations continue, after the workshop ended.
