WOW! Had an awesome time this week at our Video Production course. The Near North Mobile Media Lab out of North Bay (N2M2L fan page), Ontario came to South River for the day and taught us everything they possibly could about Vid Prod in 2 short days. We were split in 2 groups and charged with the task of making a little commercial. Ours turned into a 2 minute fiasco about the Spirits of South River. We had a blast and I learned a tonne form Lieanne and Holly. They were great. Looking forward to some v creative partnerships in the near future.

I really should have blogged about this long ago! I work 2 days a week at an eco-lodge. I do new media, some graphic design, photography, and host of other bits. Its a beautiful place to work, for two reasons. Its on the edge of Algonquin Park and the cofounders are wonderfully supportive people. M.L., one of our founders is also a Shamanic Healing. She’s been practicing, studying, and healing for years. Through her I’ve connected with a number of new clients. The work I do for them ranges from Photography to web development. Recently I’ve hooked up with Coyote, an energy worker and healer from the Haliburton Highlands (Haliburton, Ontario). A few weeks ago I was fortunate enough to spend a weekend at her retreat centre documenting its fabulousness. On Saturday we set out on snowshoe to the yurt then Sunday we shot with her daughter and did some energy healing.

Here are a few of my faves…

I finally made myself take some of those painfully difficult-for shameless self promotion-self portraits. I am working from home more often now and found myself with some time on Wednesday. As KHI Photography I find it so easy to take great pictures of OTHER people. Whether I’m photographing lovers or musicians I usually move forward with some sort of shared vision. But, man…self portraits are a bitch. I tried the char, the stool, scarf, no scarf…blah blah…I didn’t have too much time so I didn’t even bother setting up the connection between camera and computer. I just thought I’d get it all done super quickly. Yeah right.

Well, this is what I ended up with…me with QL 17 in front of face, over to the side, and in focus…out of about 100 shots these are my fave. As a side note I couldn’t tell but I think some photographer friends of mine were making fun of my choice of props. I must confess, the Canonet QL 17 is just a prop, I don’t use it…its pretty much a neat looking (broken) camera/prop.

Anyway…for you local readers (Muskoka, Parry Sound, Almaguin) keep an eye out for the Women in Business 2009 Supplement in the Almaguin News. These shots were not in vain…February 14 the supplement will come out and at least one of these shots will be put to good use.
