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.

I’m not that big on Christmas. My better half and I don’t have a Christmas tree, nor do we do the whole presents thing on December 25th.

But I’m a sucker for cool lights and a nice decor, so M and I decided to light our place in a Holiday spirit.

Plus, it’s gonna be great when our friends come for a nice meal in a few days.

I said I didn’t care about Christmas, but I do care about great friends and amazing food.

P.S: If you really want to buy presents and you still don’t know what to get, check this cool list by the brilliant Tim Ferriss, he too believes in the eternal quest to eliminate clutter, therefore hates unnecessary gifts.

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!
