Welcome to Zoom-Foto

You've no doubt landed here as part of a journey. It starts with the quest for knowledge or inspiration and ends generally with a few choice words with our good friend Google. Words like "camera" and "lighting", combined with "how'd they do that ..." and "how can I do that ..." will land you here. Take heart my friends. I can show you "how'd they do that" - and how you can too.

And this is where our paths cross and we begin our journey together. I have trod the path of 'avid photographer' for years. I have searched for hours for 'how to photograph water drops' and marveled at the perfection of other people's beautifully poised single sparkling drop. I have stood for far too long in the cold to capture that one moment of swirling snow when the air appears to sparkle. And I confess with guilt that beautiful wild horses in the Icelandic hills just had to be photographed at the expense of my very patient traveling companions.

We have all been there - somewhere where the distractions of life are left behind and we exist in the moment. Camera in hand, subject just there. And nothing else. Call me obsessed, call me a little crazy, and you might have captured my dedication to documenting that moment.
If you get this - if you've been there - then join me as I follow the path of avid photographer. Let's learn a lot of photo tech, share our inspiration and produce fantastic shots!

Photoshoot: Kitchener-Waterloo Olympic Hockey Club-House League 2012

K-W Olympic Hockey Club Teams

Spent a warm summer morning photographing some great kids and coaches for the U9, U13 and U18 teams of the Kitchener-Waterloo Olympic Hockey club.

Special thanks to my 8-year-old daughter who told me how to get everyone seated by height.  She passed on the trade secrets of the photographer that took her class photos - thanks to whoever you are!  And thanks to Anika whose demo at the bus stop one morning was charming and really not too confusing - for me or all the onlookers.
