We’re deliriously happy to be back shooting portraits of the musicians of the Newfoundland Symphony Orchestra for the 2015/16 season. We kicked it off with Jessica Pereversoff on a stormy March day with torrential rain and 100km winds! …we took shelter in an empty car park and carried on! Between running back and forth to the car to warm up we managed to get the pavement swept of snow and the lights up and tied down. Six Nikon Speedlights and a lot of sandbags and rope. Great subjects and a great crew always seem to make it happen!. Lighting assistant Erinn Locke, hair and makeup by Olivia Chafe. Thanks to musicians Jessica Pereversoff and Cameron Maclellan (whose pictures you will see soon) for being such good sports and total pros. © 2015 Greg Locke
#EXPLORE NEWFOUNDLAND ….adventures in the Newfoundland outdoors is our new project for 2015 where we will be pursuing the spirit of travel, exploration, adventure and the testing of ones physical limits looking for great stories, powerful photos and engaging video of the people who take on the challenges of the land, sea and environment.
In the past couple of years I have been getting re-acquainted with the outdoors and the opportunities for adventure it offers. Hiking, climbing, skiing and any number of human powered endeavors are only minutes out your door in Canada’s most eastern province. We have gathered of a few photos from last year to get our project website up and running and throughout the year we will be adding more photos, video and stories as we seek out the best Newfoundland has to offer in outdoor adventure.
So far this year we have been ice climbing on Cape Broyle and snow shoe racing on Three Pond Barrens. In the next few weeks we’ll be back with new cross-country skiing. Stay tuned for trail running, rock climbing, mountain biking, kayaking and to close out the summer a back country hiking and camping trip through Gros Morne National Park.
Daughter Erinn won the Woman’s Opens Division at The Outfitters ROCKFALL 2015 climbing competition at Wallnuts Climbing Centre in St. John’s, Newfoundland this weekend. Erinn is 14 and a member of the Newfoundland Junior Climbing Team and won her age class at her last competition on the Tour du Bloc national series in Montreal, Quebec. Its been a good season for her. Photo by proud father….
It’s finally ice climbing season on the east coast of Newfoundland. Members of the Alpine Club of Canada headed out for their annual camping and ice climbing trip to Lance Cove on Cape Broyle approximately 80km south of St. John’s. Photo by Greg Locke © 2015
I have finally put together a gallery of our daughter Erinn’s rock and ice climbing adventures. We’ll try to keep this updated with her latest competitions and outdoors adventures. Check out CLIMBING WITH ERINN
Sorry, not THOSE kind of cats. We got to shoot much of the 2015 Caterpillar calendar in Newfoundland this year for Canadian division Toromont CAT.
We just got our first print copies. Always nice to see the final product come out of the design house.
We really love working with The Headroom in St. John’s, Newfoundland. Great people with creative vision, drive and skills. We are back in the studio for this latest shoot for Olivia Chafe, one of the hottest hair stylists in the city, was for a Sebastian Whats Next contest. You can vote for her entry online at Sebastian.

After three years of photographing the musicians of the Newfoundland Symphony Orchestra in performance, back stage, on the road and in a series of on location photo shoots, I finally got the symphony CEO, Neil Edwards, in the studio and in front of the camera for his portrait. …click to enlarge.
