What we're about
Upcoming events (5+)
Hi everyone, This is going to be fun... From my contact: Come on out and shoot some cars! We have a mix of two wheel drive and all wheel drive cars running at our events. Our track surface is a combination of gravel ice and snow depending on the weather, makes for some wicked sideways moments! He said the address is 2001 Speedway, but the address came up invalid on meetup. They have a driver's meeting at 9h15 and races soon after. I am thinking we can get there for 9h15 and setup before the races start. Maybe get some shots of the cars. Make sure you have tons of battery and empty cards. Last time I shot there I filled a few cards and its a great event to practice panning shoots. P.S. I will be there in the morning, but I wont be able to stay for too long. I have to leave to go to my gallery showing 'meet the photographer' event. Claude
If you are a fan of rusty classic cars? this is the place to go. We have been there during the summer, but for a different perspective, we are going back this winter. http://www.boneyard.ca/ The owner will open the yard especially for us, they are not open normally on Saturdays. The only thing he asks is for us to bring donations for the food bank. So please bring none perishable food item of cash. For those who would like to meet there for 9 - 9:30, here is the address: 2085 Wynands Road, Cardinal, Ontario For those who would like to carpool, let's meet at the Walmart parking lot in South Keys. I have the blue ford SUV. I will park closer to the Royal Bank. Please contribute to the cost of fuel. Please dress accordingly, its winter after all and its a junkyard. Hope to see many of you there, Claude PS, PLease dont forget food donations.

There was a lot of interest for my last "Photo Assistant Opportunity " http://www.meetup.com... (http://www.meetup.com/The-Ottawa-Photography-Meetup-Group/events/30095321/) I'll offer them again, but in the meantime allow me to leave this as an open invitation. What I'm suggesting is I work with you one-on-one and offer anyone interested personalized education in the form of "photo apprentice for a day". For a fixed fee of $100 I'll guide you through a photo shoot from start to finish. This is not me doing and you just looking, this is you doing and me coaching. What I'd work with you on is: 1-- Creating a shoot concept (approx 2 hours) 2-- Finding a model (1 Hour) 3-- Locating the props (variable) 4-- Scouting a location (variable) 5-- Planning and scheduling the shoot (variable) 6-- Doing the shoot together (approx 2-3 hours) 7-- Editing the final images (approx 2 hours) 8-- Presentation/deliver to the client/model (variable) The fee just covers my time and coaching presumed to be about a typical day. It is not a physical "day" but a typical work day (7-8 hours) spread out over several weeks as our mutual schedules permit. this can be adjusted if you need a bit more or less. You can bring your own talent, or I can usually help find make-up artists, models etc that you can help select. Also available for reasonable fees are access to my studio, props, paid model pool. I get various requests from models for photo shoots but I am very selective in which I can take on, and generally charge models for their portfolio work. If they are unable to pay the rates and agree to shoot with my apprentices, I add them to a waiting list. Then under this Apprentice program, you have access to some of the models I have on the waiting list. Since I have my own studio, I can make that available too, for a discounted rate of $15/hour under this program. If this is of interest just drop me a note at Mailto:[masked] and we can discuss a "virtual" day aimed at your personal needs.
