A cut above….

Very pleased with the outcome of this ad campaign for long time client, Diamond Design, in St John’s, Newfoundland. If you don;t know, they have the best watch boutique in Newfoundland and with this campaign wanted to incorporate the local vibe. First shoot was with Fog Town Barbour Shop in downtown St John’s. Loved the opportunity to produce a classic retro style again. It suited this shoot so well.

Winter is here!

…and that means shooting some ice climbing. Here is a little “Behind The Scenes” of me hanging out with Terry Day climbing “High Anxiety”, a 40 meter, WI5 with very irregular formations in Red Head Cove, Newfoundland. Needless to say that this takes a lot of planning. Not only what cameras and lenses to take but the best outdoor gear and safety equipment that will keep you warm and dry but still give you room to hike and climb in. Thanks to Trevor Wragg for the photo of us.

 

Best of 2018

Well, there goes 2018. Hope it was good to you. Here are my top 9 photos of the year according to Instagram.  Although the one of me was taken by Terry Day! Nice to look back and curious because what your favourite photos, or what you might consider the “best” …. are seldom what other think. The thing I like about these are they are a product of great subjects and great adventures. Here is to 2019 so get out there and make great photos!  #2018bestnine.

An Audience of Chairs – Movie poster

The movie poster for An Audience of Chairs. Shot in Tor’s Cove, Newfoundland in the summer of 2017 and still one of my favourite images. This film is not making the film festival circuit so treat yourself and go check it out. FaceBook page for news!

The editorial business portrait

This is the stock and trade of the daily photography done by professional photographers. Sometime its for a company newsletter or announcement or the rare air of a corporate annual report but a lot is done for the business magazines. Dave Bennett and James Reid are a couple of smart lawyers who brokered a major merger of power companies in Canada and the USA for Fortis. Inc. It earned them the cover of  ThompsonReuters Lexpert Magazine. We made shot overlooking the harbour at St John’s, Newfoundland.  © 2017 Greg Locke
