Wildland firefighting recruits participating in the 2011 boot camp, held by Canadian training agency and wildfire contractor Boulder Mountain Contracting Ltd. in Barriere, BC, May 2011.
Twenty four recruits spent seven days in class rooms and in the field learning wildfire suppression for the 2011 wildfire season.
Below is also a short video with footage from BMC Boulder firefighter Marshal Chupa during the 2010 fire season.
Back in early winter of 2004 I was covering a story in downtown Calgary for the Christmas Fund edition at the Calgary Herald. A reporter named Linda Slobodian and I spent a night with Marc Nault, a 46 year old man living in cardboard boxes, located by the 5th Street underpass by 9th Ave SW. Marc has been on the streets of Calgary for the last three years, and during that time been homeless.
These are a few of the photographs from the night. It was all photographed with a Canon D2000.

I just had some time going over some of my photographs from my Calgary Herald assignment in Afghanistan. The assignment was to cover a Canadian NGO helping refugees. We visited two refugee camps as well as the local hospital in the provincial capital.

A test shoot of Russian model Anna Mogutova in the sand dunes of Maspalomas, Gran Canaria, Spain.
The model was lit with a single flash, a DynaLite Uni400 jr without any diffuser, and powered with a Jackrabbit pack. It was windy conditions with flying sand, and with no extra help, I could not put up an diffuser or a reflector to help with the lighting. The photographs were taken at 11:30 am when the sun was the strongest and most difficult to work around. If I had a choice, I would have chosen to photograph in the early evening as the sun set and the light is more on the side.
