New Camera at Northern Blast

I have been trying to put together this post for over a month, but it’s been a busy couple of months for me. The topics for this post go back to mid-May, which was an important time for me, photographically, for a couple of reasons. 1) I began working with KrPhotogs, which covers many skating events in the Chicago area. I had such a great time photographing the...

Stars on the Ice in Toronto

I have been attending Stars on Ice shows since 2003, and I always enjoy seeing stops on both the U.S. and Canadian tours. It’s fun to see the changes made to choreography in order to accommodate different cast members, and sometimes, a few new solos will give the show a completely different feel.

They raised over $6500 for the camp’s year-round programming, and they put on a...

The stunning coastline is one of only three such formations in the world, yet it remains a fairly quiet tourist attraction. Since I...

Since I danced for most of my childhood, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to capture their classes. These girls are much more advanced than I ever was, though! More photos available in this...

“Teach Me to Fly, Keith.”

This shot is from the 2012 Canadian Championships in Moncton, New Brunswick, on January 21, 2012. As with many of my favourite shots, though, this shot was the result of several years of work. I have photographed Tarrah & Keith many times in the past four seasons, and I know them well enough to be on my toes when I view new programs. Keith has incredible spring in...
