    What are some of yours?


    I enjoyed wandering the Halifax waterfront at 2am by myself because there was no one around and lots to shoot. I'd like to do that again sometime in the near future.

    I also liked heading to Cape Split with Craig (Rorytate) and Ryan(?) and seeing Craig hanging off the side of the cliff trying to get that perfect shot. I believe I asked for his car keys before he went too far so I could get home incase he fell several hundred feet to his untimely death.

    Road trips with Shaun have always been a good time. I like gas station sandwiches that include many and/or ingredients, but I do not like Squirreltown.

    Any of the times I get to go out abandon hunting with the gang is great! Some of the best stuff happens on those trips.

    :rofl: May or may not contain sesame seeds.

    Agreed. However, I did not enjoy "the hump" between you and Craig. :hsugh:

    If you guys thought me hanging off a cliff or two was bad, you should see it when I'm by myself and there's no one there to tell me any different... :) Damn I miss the coast.

    Ouch, I wasn't there for that one was I?

    I offered to do the humpty hump!

    Best memory, bar none: Baddeck, crabs, and not a camera in sight. :)

    Other mentionables: stalking eagles (in the valley and on the Bras D'Or in the kayaks), watching Garett spooge over live penguins, and offroading Integras/sand traps.








    P.S.: my socks match today Tanya. :P

    I drove to Bridgewater last year to shoot the Karissa Boudreau candlelight vigil. There was a snow storm that night and it took two and a half hours to drive each way but, thanks to my Jeep, I made it ok. I went with a reporter (I was shooting for the Daily News then) and we arrived back in Halifax 30 minutes before deadline and filed to the wire just in time. The next morning one of my shots was in the National Post and to offset that high the Daily News closed their doors for good. Bittersweet.

    Another favorite memory I have was driving around during hurricane Noel shooting video for the Daily News while Andre Forget shot stills. The video thing was new to me but I enjoyed it and City TV in Toronto broadcast some of my footage. I thought that was pretty cool. My girlfriend spent a lot of time convincing them to burn that program for her (they had some serious copyright issues and forms for her to fill out) but that Christmas she had the DVD for me in my stocking.

    Absinthe at 1:30am. Sleep. Get up at 5:00am. Still buzzing. UGGHHHHHH

    Don't get me started on that road. Easily the sketchiest road I've ever taken the Pathfinder down.

    Scott, Jeff Bond & I did a trip to CB in April two years ago, we ended up trying to get out to White Point. There were still some snow drifts, but I decided to giver anyway. Mistake. We were stuck for a good two hours before we found a fisherman to pull us out. :rofl:

    Martini's and absinthe + shooting the next morning do not mix

    I wish I could have made it that day!!

    We had to go back to Scott's to dry out our stuff. :rofl:

    I saw the wave coming... probably 50 feet in the air above us. I simply squatted down, tucked the camera in my jacket and let it hit me. This was spray mind you... not a full on wave. :lol:

    Road trip foods of choice:

    - Irving Banana Bread (the package of like 6 slices.) The package can be conveniently used as a poo slipper should you happen to step in a pile of human poo and are wearing boots with 1" deep treads that hold the poo in there real good. Even after trying to scrape it out with a stick and wipe it in the grass.

    - Rolo chocolate milk. cause it's got that Caramel hit. Blaow!

    - Munchos. Best to share these delectable sodium morsels.

    - Beef Jerky. Cause there is no other smell like it.

    - Package of dinner rolls. Should you happen to be a doughboy.

    Photo trip Attire:

    Boots. Wear them. Because there is nothing worse than wearing low cut sneakers and stepping out of the vehicle into a 4" high pile of deer vomit.

    XMas day 2008 walking from the foot of the MacDonald Bridge to PPP. Everything was so quiet the only sound was my boots on the sidewalk. And I wound up with a tonne of keepers as a bonus.

    Second favorite would have to be shooting with Craig. I remember him standing in the middle of a stream up to ankles giving me something to lean on while I made it to the other side. Even with a couple of soakers he never complained once.
