Living with a couple of chefs is pretty much the best deal in the world. Danielle and Brian made this bitchin’ steak sandwich that was over two feet long. I can’t complain about not being well fed now that I am back in Canada. Now that I am in Canada though, I just feel like […]



Living with a couple of chefs is pretty much the best deal in the world. Danielle and Brian made this bitchin’ steak sandwich that was over two feet long. I can’t complain about not being well fed now that I am back in Canada.

Now that I am in Canada though, I just feel like I have to get out and travel again. The downside is that my funds are pretty tapped out. Living off a photographers salary means that I’ll be here a while before I take a trip again. It’s too bad because I keep talking to a friend in China who goes hiking all the time and she sent me a couple pictures of her climbing mountains. I would love to be climbing by her side.

Dundurn 2009 Mud Drags

This weekend, I went to the Dundurn Mud Drags. To anyone who doesn’t know me, I love motor sports. Any kind. If it has an engine and is loud, I like it. Add mud, beer and music and that makes me a very content photographer. I have found that the best motor sports events happen […]










This weekend, I went to the Dundurn Mud Drags. To anyone who doesn’t know me, I love motor sports. Any kind. If it has an engine and is loud, I like it. Add mud, beer and music and that makes me a very content photographer. I have found that the best motor sports events happen in small towns. There is a level of camaraderie that isn’t found in cities, even ones as small as Saskatoon.

To say that these guys know motors is an understatement. With the way the track was tossing the trucks around, things were bound to break. When they did, the guys would be quick to fix and in some cases swap parts in order to get down the track for another run.

With summer wrapping up, it means that these types of events do slow down. Not entirely though as once the lakes freeze over, the ice racing begins. There are reasons why I love the Prairies. To all my Ontario friends, you will never understand. Prairie fields, harvest moons and rusted trucks. Welcome to my life.

So this weekend, I was asked to shoot a gig at a local lounge. 911 Turbo. It is a 80’s German Techno band that was started by a few guys I know. I have to say, this was one of the best shows I have been to in a long time, and I have been to MANY shows. The guys had so much energy and the crowd ate it up. The second night even got to the point where the cops showed up outside after the show.

This weekend is the Dundurn Mud Drag races. Think redneck fun and there you have it. Should be good times.
