Such a great pleasure with work with Mary Walsh and her small guerrilla team on the Marg Brings Change campaign during the 2015 election. You can check out all the videos, memes and posters at margbringschange.ca. …and MARG!, Princess Warrior, didn’t have to smite anyone. Although the Canadian voter certainly smited Stephen Harper and the Conservative party. Canada now returns to regular programming.

A video I worked on (camera and sound) with the legendary Newfoundland writer and actress, Mary Walsh, and a bunch of incredibly talented people, has just been released today and will air nationally tonight on This Hours Has 22 Minutes on CBC TV.
Its was nice to return to some old school documentary photography work this summer. I spent a lot of time travelling around Newfoundland, revisiting many of the places I visited as a photojournalist many years ago resulting in the book with Michael Crummey, NEWFOUNDLAND …journey into a lost nation.
Once again, travelling light with two cameras, two lenses and no lights, looking for those little flashes of humanity that tell the stories of a culture and society.
I was surprised and happy to see that the old ways are still out there despite the destroyed fishery, the exodus of people for rural Newfoundland and the “Disneyfication” of culture that comes with an influx of tourism. Sadly, there are so few public outlets for this type of work anymore. The demise of the big news, current affairs and geographical magazines and newspapers mean these stories go untold. Thankfully there are a few dedicated online publication who do still produce good journalism and current affairs. One of those is Facts & Opinions. This story of rural Newfoundland and more photos can be found on their website. Do check out the story, Life Goes on in Rural Newfoundland.

The weather has been horrid in Newfoundland so far this spring and summer so we’ve taken advantage of the few nice days to get outdoors and do what we love … explore Newfoundland! I also had the unexpected pleasure of photographing my friend and excellent climber, Carla, who is back on the east coast for the summer.
We had a great rock climbing and camping trip with the Newfoundland Section of the Alpine Club of Canada to the Fair Islands in Bonavista Bay on Newfoundland’s north east coast. Lots to explore and lots of new rock for bouldering, top rope and trad climbing.
Here is a photo gallery on the ACC NL FaceBook Page…
…and THE VIDEO!
Summer finally arrives on Newfoundland’s east coast and its warm enough for some kayak and canoe adventures. Went for a shake down run in Butterpot Provincial Park this weekend. Check out our Explore Newfoundland galleries. © 2015 Greg Locke
The ever fickle spring and summer seasons of Newfoundland seem to be making a commitment for this year so the summer climbing season has begun here on the east coast. Erinn leading on The German Face, Conception bay, Newfoundland. © 2015 GREG LOCKE
In a visually noisy world of over saturated, over photo shopped, really bad HDR artificial photos it is so nice to have someone who appreciates classic black & white portraiture walk into your studio. It’s always rewarding to revisit and practice the lighting lessons taught to us by the great masters like Rembrandt and Vermeer (…see Rembrandt Lighting) and 1940’s Hollywood photographers such as George Hurrell, who pioneered the use of high intensity focused fresnel lights found on movies sets. Its clean, back to basics and keeps it simple. It’s about the light, not the camera. This is Marc Lafrenière, teacher, photographer, film and art aficionado …future .com billionaire. :^)
