Mandy and Steve got married!! …but being avid rock climbers they wanted some photos that reflected their love of the sport. This is not the realm of regular wedding photographers so they turned to their local climbing community. So on a beautiful fall morning our small crew headed out to make this happen for them. Along with Mandy and Steve there was, rope access specialist and photographer Terry Day, experienced climber Thom Smith, all ’round adventurer and drone pilot Brandon Whelan and myself. We had a location in mind at a regular climbing crag in Flatrock, north of St John’s that had the right combination of dramatic and being fairly “wedding dress accessible” …despite being called “BloodBath”. The plan was reviewed, ropes were rigged, the drone was launched and everyone took their places. I’m hoping this was a first for Newfoundland. Thanks everyone for an epic shoot and a big congratulations to Mandy and Steve!
Back in August outdoor retailer, Atmosphere, came out to Newfoundland to shoot their fall ad campaign on the iconic East Coast Trail …and it was a blast! Our crew of eight hiked, scouted explored and shot in locations from Flatrock to LaManche over 5 days. Even Cape Spear …as far east as you can go in North America! For a photography and ad people its very rewarding to be doing full on advertising production on location in beautiful place.

Our video from the 2016 Bloc on The Rock climbing competition at Wallnuts Climbing Centre in St John’s, Newfoundland. This bouldering event kicked of the climbing competition season and is the first of two major provincial competitions in the province.
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.

Every two years since 1983 Sound Symposium has been happening in Newfoundland, Canada at the edge of the North Atlantic. Founded by classical musician and percussionist, Don Wherry, the event grew from a bunch of avant garde musician friends to a ten day international festival of new music, performing and sound art with everything from classical and jazz musicians experimenting with new sound, dance and theatre to audio engineers and sculptures creating audio art installations in the wild coastal environment. The soundscapes created have become the hallmark of Sound Symposium which happens once again in July of 2014.
We shot this video at a 2012 Sound Symposium event organized by Gayle Young, a sound artist and founder of Music Works magazine. She led a group of musicians to remote Doctor’s Cove, Newfoundland, 100km south of St. John’s to find resonant rocks and build lithophones.
SOUTHCOTT AWARDS 2013: Call for Nominations
The Southcott Awards were established in 1984 by The Trust to recognize those who have demonstrated excellence in building design, preservation and restoration of the architectural heritage of Newfoundland and Labrador.
The quality of our architectural heritage has come to be one of the defining aspects of Newfoundland and Labrador. The Historic Trust has been instrumental in establishing that definition, but our award winners over the past twenty-nine year have made that definition a reality.
Nominations are now being accepted for the 2013 Southcott Awards in following categories:
Building Restoration / Preservation – Nominations are considered for finished architectural restoration projects. The committee considers architectural design, quality of conservation work, preservation of original features, use of traditional materials, and the integrity of the structure and its surrounding site.
New Building Design -Contemporary, high quality building design has the power to encourage economic development and improve the quality of life for residents in an area. Such design may address issues of sustainability and encourage community renewal. This nomination is for individuals or organizations that have completed an architectural design project sensitive to the heritage character of the surrounding environment.
Heritage Craftsperson/ Tradesperson – This award will recognize the skill and contribution of an individual in the craft or trade professions in heritage conservation.

The Selection Committee reserves the right to not give an award in a category.
The Southcott Awards are named for one of the most important nineteenth century Newfoundland building firms: J. and J.T. Southcott. We know them today principally for the Second Empire designs of J.T.’s architect son, John. The characteristics of this style are concave, curved mansard roofs with hooded dormers in the mansard. While the style started with the development of the Southcott properties at Park Place on Rennie’s Mill Road in St. John’s, they spread throughout the whole colony. Many examples of this style remain intact today. However, the Southcott Awards recognize and celebrate numerous architectural styles visible throughout the province.
