What do you do when you are asked to take a wide shot of a city…?

First reflex is to ask for an helicopter…

That doesn’t always work, but you gotta ask… ;o)

Second reflex is find the tallest thing you can climb or go on top of.

In this case, I got lucky enough to go on top of Pearl Tower, the tallest building in Edmonton, that is currently being built.

Thanks Regency

I’m still in Paris for a few days, but still working on Canadian projects…

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of working on a current project for Designing Downtown, in the office where my documentary career started 10 years ago, when I worked on March of the Penguins…

10 years ago!!!

A lot has changed since then, but it’s good to see that, even after 10 years, I just walked in and the amazing people of Bonne Pioche Productions welcomed me like no time had past, and showed me to a desk for me to put down my gear and finish editing my Edmonton project…

Thanks friends…!

Growing up, I wasn’t a big camping fanatic.

Then, I moved to Canada and discovered that camping could be done in places like Birkenhead lake.

I now officially dig camping… ;o)

Last month I spent a few days in Edmonton on several projects.

One of them consisted of filming the 2013 First Nation Conference for Sustainable Buildings and Communities.

And at some point during the conference, the bands REDDNATION and Asani joined forces to perform their latest duo “Take a Stand” for us.

So as I was filming by myself, I had 2 options on that one:

Either leave the camera on a tripod and catch the whole thing, wide angle style (did anybody say “boring…”?), or grab my camera off the sticks, and run like hell around the singers and dancers while they were performing in order to get as many different angles as possible.


Good thing I like running…

A few weeks ago, the Lovely August Wiled stopped by my studio to do what she loves most… Dance!

At the time I just got my hands on the latest “Muse” album and thought some of the songs would go nicely with a ballerina dancing.

Here is what we came up with, I’d love to know what you think of it.

And of course, if you are in the neighborhood, please, feel free to come to my studio to pose, dance, have fun!
I’d love to have you.

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.

Let me introduce the latest addition to my kit. (I’m talking about the cute piece of glass in the middle.)

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.

Last week I got contracted to film a “behind the scenes” for the latest Build Direct Christmas Video.

The whole shoot was taking place a the Vancouver Christmas Market.

Usually, the first thing I think about when I have to film something like that is: “How can I get higher than ground level…?”

I asked the people at the market if I could access the building next door’s roof top, they said “no”, but they did mention that the Christmas Markets Huts roofs were solid enough to hold a guy my size… (Mmmh…)

So I grabbed the closest ladder I could find and jumped on one of the roofs.

Some of the shots I took from up there actually ended up being used in the final video, not in the behind the scenes. As nice establishing shots.

I’m honored.

Also, while I was up, the amazing Aimee Makris (from Moi Photography), who was in charge of the photo behind the scene, grabbed a pretty cool shot of me doing my thing.

Thanks Aimee!

This is where I spent most of my time last week.

The big green building is Martyshuk Housing “Loft” where they house some of their clients (who used to be homeless) and above it is the view from the south facing units. Pretty cool view isn’t it?

Edmonton - High street… from Brice Ferre Photography on Vimeo.

Guess what…

When I’m not filming cool models for the "my song" series, I am filming cool models to promote “High Street” in Edmonton, Alberta.

Here is the latest video we shot there a few weeks ago, for the great people of Regency Developments.

Here is one more video as part of the “my song” series in Vancouver.

Today we meet the fabulous Kelly Trerise, business woman, make-up artist, model, and traveler extraordinaire. When she’s not hanging out with Snoop Dog, she is all over the world beautifying women with her crazy make-up skills.

Bring her anything with a leopard print on it and she will be your friend forever.

And she’ll be sure to rock that thing, whether it is a pair of high heels, a tank top or a tight evening dress.

Enjoy.

Now, let’s be serious for a second… Who wants to be my next model?

As I took some time off last week, I have been away from my computer.

It felt good to take a break and enjoy my family and friends without thinking about work at all. But it also feels good to be back and share some of my new stuff with you all.

Here is a photo I took Saturday morning, at 5.15 am while drinking coffee on a wooden dock on the gorgeous Harrison Lake…

My family and I spent the last 3 days off the grid (literally) and got to really appreciate how amazingly beautiful British Columbia is.

More new projects, portraits, videos and photos very soon…

Last week I was shooting an event using Canon’s 70-200mm lens.

Here is what happens when someone in the crowd gets curious about your camera and decides to move his head in front of it to get a better view.

The auto-focus shifts from far to pretty close.

Man! That lens is quick to focus!!!
