Kayaking The Butterpot

FatherDay-2015-Butterpot-HR-0490Summer 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

More, Lisa Moore

Author Lisa Moore by Newfoundland photographer Greg Locke in St. John's for Salon © 2013 - www.greglocke.com More cover shoots with Lisa Moore!

 

Lisa is on fire with the release of her new novel Caught from House of Anansi this month. We photographed her on a rooftop overlooking Water Street in downtown St. John’s from the Saint John Telegraph Journal’s Salon magazine.

 

 “St. John’s author Lisa Moore, the 2013 winner of Canada Reads, Giller Prize finalist and Commonwealth Writers’ Prize-winner, explodes expectations in arguably CanLit’s most anticipated book  of 2013. With wild abandon, Caught, her third novel, entrenches Moore in the upper echelon of Canadian writers with a story of sensitivity and suspense that is part fact, part 21st-century folktale and entirely fantastic.” 

….Mike Landry, Telegraph-Journal.

 

Lisa is also on the cover of the June 2013 issue of Quill and Quire magazine

 

Room with a view

Ever wonder what the view from the top of that tower crane on the 351 Water Street construction site looks like? The best view in St. John’s belongs to the crane operator on this project. We did this shot from just below the operators booth approx 75 meters (and a 20 minute climb with gear BTW) off the ground. Now that we’re back on this project in real time (not just with time lapse cameras) we’re looking for the perfect day to do some photos from the boom. It’s a unique view of “The Bowl” that only a couple of people will ever experience in person. Photo by Greg Locke © 2012

We’ve finally had a chance to get back to our project at 351 Water street this week. Had a great day with the iron workers at the 8 story level. …GREAT VIEW!!

The time lapse cameras are still chugging away nicely thanks to Panasonic, Manfrotto and Kata but we needed to catch up on our still photos as the erection of the steel for the top section has been underway for a few weeks now.
