Another great photography video featuring Atiba Jefferson. I’ve always admired his work. Nice to see him getting some time in front of the camera after spending years behind it.

We found a stump so @themtings stood on it and made a pretty picture. #vscocam #beautifulwifebeautifullife #onhotbabymomma
This past weekend I headed out for Fujifilm’s Walk in the Park with the Fuji Guys - Toronto Edition. It was held at the Evergreen Brickworks. The day was a huge success and an awful lot of fun. The venue is such an unbelievable mix of industrial, urban and nature all in one place in the heart of Toronto. If you’ve never been I highly recommend checking it out. I packed light taking my trusty X100 and an X-T1 with an 18-55mm lens as well as my Chrome Industries Niko Sling and an old generic monopod. I borrowed a 10-24 for a few minutes which was pretty wild.
Anyhow, as I mentioned the day was a blast. I’m looking forward to the next one and just exploring and shooting more in general.

I don’t think that it’s any secret that Instagram has done more for photography in the past few years that just about anything else in recent memory. It’s put photography back in the spotlight, it’s made it accessible and it’s got people interested again. Average (non photographer) people are striving to take better photos because they want their feeds to be something to be proud of. It’s been wild to witness people taking pride and pushing to take better photos again. It’s turned average people with a smartphone into celebrity photographers and it’s turned top notch professional photographers into superstars. A lot of people would argue that digital and then smartphone photography were the death of “real” photography but it feels like Instagram is the long anticipated rebirth. I love it! I’d argue that it’s the best way to gain exposure (pun intended) for anyone looking to be noticed. I hear more and more stories every day about people gaining opportunities through brands noticing their Instagram feeds and then working together. It’s so good.
Now, back to the original intent of this post. Videos haha. Along with the rebirth of the photographic cool has come a number of short videos that have featured some of the new InstaFamous and the old Pro’s that have reached Instagram superstardom. Some have been made of them and some they’ve made themselves but I’ve been really enjoying all of them so I thought I’d share.
Next Up: Trashhand. Three years ago he started on Instagram unknown. 3 years later he has almost 300,000 followers and is now teaching classes through Skillshare about how to be a better photographer.
And here are a few others that I’ve just been enjoying.
That’s about it for now. The other great thing about this post is I now have all of my favourite videos in one place :). As I mentioned earlier I’m super stoked on this wave of photography and exploration and can literally sit here for hours watching these videos. Hope you enjoy them. If you know of any others please let me know.
Yesterday we did a family expedition to the Cheltenham Badlands. I hadn’t been there since I was in high school on a field trip. There were quite a few people there but we still managed to get a good number of photos sans people. If you didn’t know about it then it’s definitely a place worth checking out.
#tbt to a couple years ago on our trip to New York. I also wanted to try out the new #hypebeastXvscocam presets. 👍 I like em. #hb1 #vscocam #nyc #vscogrid #hypebeast
Details and new rubber. Fit some cross/ touring tires on the Argon. Opening up the adventures to new road/trails. Should be fun. #argon18bike #semorecc
Sugar beach. Toronto
First real ride since Hudson’s arrival, well longer than my 7km commute anyway. Starting out slow.
I absolutely love riding in my new area. Ten minutes and your out on empty, smooth country roads. 👌
This weekends weapon of choice. Fujifilm X-E2. I love me my Fuji’s.
Went for a nice sunset walk with the fam it’s evening. Really enjoying exploring our new area.
