Gravity.

There’s a huge difference between pushing music out, and drawing people in. When you push music out, things are slightly off centre. Things may sound right, but there’s no power or dynamics.

Capturing love in a photograph is not an easy thing to do. This photo was taken at the Bell TIFF Lightbox in Toronto last December. I was hired by a man looking to do the ultimate proposal. Complete surprise. Candlelit walkway. Lone table overlooking the city. Needless to say, it worked incredibly well. Sue Morley …

The magic button.

Leave a comment

Every once in a while, you hit the magic button, so to speak. I gazed hesitantly at my stomp box on Sunday morning at the Riverside Grill. It’s one of those multi-effects units.
