NAPE PTSD public awareness campaign

Many people are subject to traumatic experiences in their job. Some repeatedly, some just once. But all can result in PTSD. And its not always the obvious people like soldiers and first responders. It can be shop keepers, teachers, taxi drivers, clergy, journalists …anyone. Any worker who has been robbed, assaulted, harassed on the job or witnesses a traumatic event can be afflicted with PTSD. I’m proud to have been a part of this public service campaign by the Newfoundland Association of Public Employees to bring workplace mental health legislation to the province for all workers.

Endless Summer 2015

Chantelle-LanceCovePoint-NL-WEB-1421

OK, that might be a bit delusional. July was a weather torture test in Newfoundland and “Winter is Coming” has become “I told you so” as December gets  a firm grip on us and we resign ourselves to the dark months.   ….BUT!  August was awesome and the summer stretched well into October so we got to do some great “fall” shooting that looked like an endless summer. A little bit of climbing with the Newfoundland Youth Team in Stiles Cove,  yoga in the Manuals River with climber and circus aerialist Keely Whitelaw, getting dirty in the political trenches with Marg, Princess Warrior and glorious “summer” photos with NSO musicians Chantelle Jubinville and newest member Rosemary Lawton. The remote sandy beach at Lance Cove Point at the southern tip of the Avalon Peninsula is a match of anything in the tropics …ok, the temps were chilly but it LOOKS like the Caribbean! We took sheep for a boat ride on the islands off Tors Cove, danced with Katie Hardy at Cape Spear and it even made our shoots with Toromont CAT much more pleasurable. Our vacation adventures in August saw us out on the road kayaking, canoeing and exploring the out-of-the-way areas of north east coast of the island. So, here is good-bye to summer and hello winter. Bring it on. Skiing and ice climbing coming up.

NSO Portraits 2015 have started

NSO-JessicaPereversoff_GSL-5871-2WEB-text

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 Project 2015

#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.

You can’t do projects like this on your own so we are grateful for the assistance of The Outfitters and Wallnuts Climbing Center in helping us make pictures happen.

The 2015 CAT calendar is here!

Cat-Calendar2015_GSL-9202

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.
