The River Guardian

 

The River Guardian

Had a little time and were sitting around the office so Erinn and I decided to go try out some new lighting tricks …but it can never be just another lighting test. It has to be a production. Erinn outdid herself with the concept, costuming and makeup. We lit up that river with a bunch of Nikon Speedlights including a couple underwater in watertight containers.  This was our second go at putting remote fired flashes under water. We now await a client and assignment to put it into serious use ….anyone? Photos by Greg Locke © 2014. Model: Erinn Locke. Assisted by Susan Locke and Curtis Jones.

The Honourable Clyde Wells

Clyde Wells by Greg Locke © 2014

Last week, jammed between Sound Symposium and the construction video project, I got asked to do a portrait of Mr. Clyde Wells, esteemed jurist, former Premier of Newfoundland and Labrador and recently retired as Chief Justice of the Newfoundland Supreme Court.  There was little time and our schedules were not lining up but there was no way I was going to turn it down. As a news photographer in the 90′s I covered him when he was the Premier during the Meech Lake debates, hard economic times in the province and followed him around on a few election campaigns. We also crossed professional paths in his private life as a lawyer and while he was Chief Justice in the Newfoundland Supreme Court. He was always the gentleman and one of the few civil and rational voices in the savagery known as Newfoundland politics. This was my first chance to do a proper portrait. Thank you Mr. Wells. It was my pleasure.

NSO cellist Rachel Gauntlett

So lucky to get to photograph Newfoundland Symphony Orchestra cellist, Rachel Gauntlett, again this week. Rachel was the first portrait we did when we started The NSO Portraits project nearly two years ago. We photographed her in the Newman Wine Vaults. If you are thinking, hey wait a minute, isn’t it winter in Newfoundland you would be right. We got out of the snow in an empty parking garage but Rachel  still had to tough it out for the nearly 2 hour photo shoot in sub zero temps. Talented, beautiful and ….tough!  You should visit her website at www.rachelgauntlett.com. Photo by Greg Locke © 2014.

At The Silver Ball with the NSO

At the 2014 Newfoundland Symphony Orchestra annual Silver Ball. St. John's Newfoundland. Photographer; Greg Locke © 2014

Had a wonderful evening at the Newfoundland Symphony Orchestra’s annual Silver Ball on Saturday night. Technically, I wasn’t working (just enjoying the evening) but I had my trusty little Fuji X20 with me and never could let a nice photo pass by. So, I snuck into the cello section to get this shot of Sarah-Jane Johnson. Ms Johnson is a MUN Music masters student and recipient of the Suncor Energy Strings Fellowship.

Youth Climbing Competition

A poster we did for the upcoming Youth Climbing Competition happening in St. John’s on Feb 16th. It features a photo of daughter Erinn (of course!) in competition at Wallnuts Climbing Centre. This is an Alpine Club of Canada sanctioned competition and qualifier event for the eastern Canada regional championships to be held in Toronto in April. If you want to see some amazing young athletes like no other, you really should come out and see these kids compete.
