Christmas is Coming!

Christmas is coming - wouldn't a nice framed photograph of some local scenery, or our local eagles or osprey be a perfect gift? How about a gorgeous photo of the Wallace Lighthouse on canvas and gallery-wrapped for your living room?

Contact me directly at 902-268-2960 to visit my on-premises photo gallery, or visit Whirligigs cafe in Wallace (open weekends only) to see a nice selection of works by Wallace River Photography!

And COMING SOON! I have obtained a turn-of-the century horse-drawn pung sleigh. This sleigh is currently being totally rebuilt and repainted (RED!) and it will be a great prop for a family photo for the winter season, or think way ahead for a family shot for your next-year's Christmas Cards!! I'll post a shot of the sleigh here when it's done, but in the meantime, this is how it's looking so far. The work is being done by a local Wallace boat-builder with a superb reputation, Thomas Wood of Big Bay Boats.

Recent Grad Photo Session

A local engineer-to-be needed some grad photos done before trekking off to University. The session went very well, needless to say! If your son or daughter needs a quality set of grad photos, feel free to call at any time for an appointment.

A Fun Family Photo Session

A local family recently had a visit from their son and daughter-in-law, and baby, from England, and they wanted a few photos to remember the visit. It was about an hour-and-a-half shoot in my studio and I think the results were quite good! The baby is 10  months old and was pretty well-rested, so she was generally in a happy mood. She got a bit weary of the process after awhile and that was when we knew it was time for a break :). Here's some of the shots from that shoot :

This is the historic Wallace River Swing Bridge. It is a panoramic shot of the bridge and is sized at 36"x12", beautifully printed on  a new size 1.5" thick gallery-wrapped canvas and displayed on a wooden frame. This would look great on your wall and it's reasonably priced!

The bridge crosses the Wallace River in Cumberland County along the former Intercolonial Railway line, now part of the Trans Canada Trail. The bridge would pivot open for Sailing ships proceeding up the Wallace River to the Sand Stone Quarries, and carry the local sandstone to building projects around the world.

Something New and Different - The Canada Winter Games - Freestyle Skiing

I was fortunate enough to obtain media accreditation allowing me to attend the Canada Winter Games. I was mainly interested in the Freestyle Ski events at Ski Wentworth, so I went on four days, to see
  1. Halfpipe Competition
  2. Aerials
  3. Moguls
  4. Dual Moguls
All of these events were truly remarkable, and the athletes competing were fearless on the steep slopes and the jumps. Some of the hills were difficult to even stand on, let alone do the trick skiing. It's a good thing the organizers offered snowmobile rides UP to where the events were being held, even if one had to walk back down the hill! Here's just a sampling of the pics I managed to get. As you can see, the weather was almost perfect.
