Summer/Fall 2009 : Newsletter : approx. time needed to review - 2 minutes
Greetings friends, family, clients + collaborators! 
Ice is beginning to form. The end of 2009 is near. It really was a wild one, but summer has come and gone.  
In this issue I am going to focus almost entirely on the Vancouver Convention Centre project with DDB Canada...why? 
Because this was a dream project for a dream client that was exhilarating, challenging, inspiring, collaborative and rewarding.
Most of you should know by now that my wife Chelsea and I have re-located to the family homestead of 125 years back in Saskatchewan. (Sept.’09 Press Release) We are absolutely loving it! It’s is a bit hard to explain but for those of you who are married or have a life partner, it’s kind of like the time when you first met. You just knew they were the one. 
Those of you who are not based in Saskatchewan (99.5% of you) don’t fear. There is an airport here, I enjoy flying and 
I have a fairly modest travel fee. In the last couple of months I’ve managed to complete several projects with great success that have taken me across this expansive country of ours! More about that in the next newsletter due early 2010.
I have an important announcement mentioned below.
Ok, I can’t wait.... 3.0 has been launched! Link below.
Check it out when you have a few minutes and let me know what you think.

We had Talon Helicopters take the door off of their Twinstar in order to get a clear view  with the Hasselblad H3D-50.
Shooting directly to the laptop allowed
art director Dan O’Leary to view the compositions as we took them.

IPA Best of Show reception at Splashlight Studios was a thrill. Met some wonderful people. I’m super excited about the Nadav Kander print that I purchased at the live auction in support of the Lucie Foundation. I’m absolutely humbled by Hossein Farmani + Susan Baraz and all that they are doing for photography.
We are lucky to have people like them who dedicate themselves to promoting the medium.
The Lucie Awards were as inspiring as ever. It’s amazing to witness so much talent and creativity in one room. I think it’s wonderful to have an award with such prestige that recognizes the legends in our field and also gives something for emerging photographers to work towards.
