A couple of days ago, I was in Venice Beach. There, you can’t look anywhere without finding something cool to photograph.
The skate park was pretty crowded, but at some point most people got out of my frame except for that rad skateboarding girl.
I don’t know who she is, but I’m assuming that she is a regular, so if you live around Venice and eventually go to the park and see her, feel free to let her know she is on my blog now, looking cool… ;o)
As I mentioned last week, I don’t really do Christmas and I really don’t expect any presents from anyone. But what I didn’t mention was that I love treating myself with a nice new lens every once in a while.
So, this blog won’t be called “A life at 85mm” but you are about to see a lot more photos shot at this focal length.
Oh, and for those who know a thing or two about aperture, that baby opens at f/1.2, so if you think I had a pretty shallow depth of field before, you should hang on to your boots because backgrounds are about to get very very blurry.
This week was no exception. Once again, I got to spend time with people who are so full of love, warmth and happiness, even if life hasn’t always been so kind to them.
As I have been hanging around the halls with my camera for the past few days now, all of Martyshuk Housing clients know me pretty well. (Either as Brice or “camera guy”) And every time I show up, I am welcomed by big smiles, which make my job pretty sweat and easy I gotta say.
Some of my friends still wonder what I exactly do when I go to Edmonton for a few weeks.
I can’t share the photos of all my projects yet, because it’s not cool to display the images before my clients get to actually use them. But here is one from the shoot I did with Regency Developments last November.
During my last trip there, I actually got the chance to shoot several projects at once, which allowed me to meet and photograph people from very different backgrounds with amazing stories.
From aboriginal people to young entrepreneurs and also formerly and currently homeless men and women.
I got to shoot a lot of amazing portraits, and can’t wait to share them with you all.
