Seven incredible athletes joined forces to help raise funds for Big Brothers and Big Sisters during Ribfest 2017 in the City of Quinte West.
Huge fun shooting the Pinup Girl contest this year.
Canada Day in the City of Quinte West proved to be a great deal of family fun; full of attractions for all ages.
Not least of which was the competition to see who would take the title of Ontario’s Strongest Man,(OSM) for 2017.
Or, composing with your feet.
Went out today with a friend of mine to an old haunt, Chisholm’s Mill, in Roslin Ontario.
We generally leave the cameras in the car and wander the area we are going to photograph; kind of a reconnaissance before we get rolling.
The sun was casting shadow where we didn’t want it, so we were considering leaving and coming back in an hour or two; however, we decided to walk up the road and across the bridge, just to see what we can see.
I’m glad we did, the walk afforded us a different angle neither one of us had considered before.
I was asked to come and document a fantastic showing of pure skill, athleticism, inclusion and heart pumping adrenaline .
Wheelchair Rugby once went by the name, “Murder Ball”; due to the quick pace and crashing of chairs, I can see how it got it’s name.
Held at Quinte Secondary School in Belleville Ontario, this, first of it’s kind for the area, tournament showcased the fact that the only disability is a bad attitude.
Athletes came from all over Ontario and Quebec for the two day tournament spanning the weekend of the 25-26th of March 2017.
Referees, time and scorekeeping was observed by officials from the Ontario Wheelchair Sports Association,(owsa.ca)
I’m quite excited that I am expecting a new addition to my family soon!
I have ordered the Sigma 85mm F1.4 ART lens, and should have it this coming week!
This lens is interesting in that it has, “Broke”, one of my favourite sites, DXOMark.com; previously, their highest rating for a lens was 50, this new Sigma lens rates a 51.
Sample shots to follow!
I had the opportunity to take the player pictures for Quite West’s only National Wheel Chair Rugby team, the Quadzilla’s
Well, it has been long awaited, but finally it is here.

I hope everyone has had a wonderful summer….see you all soon.
