As 2016 comes to an end I would like to take a few moments of your time.
This year has been really great for me and NONE of it would have been possible without all of you. I know it may seem trivial, but your “likes” and “shares” of my work these past 12 months have been vital in taking Captura Camera to another level. Your support has been outstanding, and I have never been in a better place in life than I am right now. Thank you!
2016 has been a year of many firsts for me. Until last January I was primarily known as a video guy. I worked on short films and corporate videos. However, I made a New Years resolution last year to tackle more photography and it has paid off tenfold. Weddings, family portraits, concerts and of course landscape photography. I found my true passion. I still love shooting video, but creatively I am firing on all cylinders and I am constantly looking to expand my portfolio with fun and challenging projects.
I have many ideas planned for 2017 and I can’t wait to share them with you all. I hope you will continue to support my work, and I look forward to being your photographer/videographer for many years to come.
However, before I go let me quickly thank a few people.
First, if you hired me in 2016, booked me for 2017 or have ever collaborated with me in any way at all, thank you! You help not only keep my lights on, but you allow me to make a living doing what I love. I'm forever in your debt.
Same goes for anyone who has purchased any of my prints this past year, thank you so much. Selling art these days is not easy, and knowing that my work has a place in people's homes is incredibly humbling.
A big shoutout to Bucketlist Music Reviews and Montreal Rocks. You guys helped me break into concert photography this year, and it has been a dream come. Photographing the Don Henley show was a life highlight!
Speaking of concert photography, I have to thank the awesome band Pin Up. I've photographed their concerts, taken their promotional photos and even had the honour of being their wedding photographer. They're bad ass musicians and wonderful people. I wish them all the success they deserve in 2017 and beyond!
I also have to give a shout to all the guys and girls in the Ligue de balle molle P'tits Vieux de Brossard (PVB) This year my company was a sponsor in the league, and despite not winning the title, my dad's team did win :-) Very cool. I love few things in love as much as softball, and having my companies name on our team jersey this year was amazing.
Last but far from least, I have to give serious props to my wonderful girlfriend Rosalie Gauthier. Smart, beautiful and better than me in every way imaginable. She is the biggest driving force behind everything I do, and none of my success would mean a thing if she wasn't there to celebrate them with me. XOX
If I haven't called you out by name, know that I love and appreciate you just the same. I will see you all in 2017.....but first...one more photo ;-)
This is a landscape photo taken of the Montreal skyline during a recent snowfall. I really love taking pictures in the snow, and with the city as the backdrop I couldn't have asked for a better way to end 2016.
