Canadian Wildlife

Here are a couple of portraits that I did for Canadian Wildlife magazine.  They are doing a story on Dr. Steven Cooke of Carleton University and awarding him with an award for his contribution to conservation and wise use of recreational fisheries in Canada.  

They wanted him to look 'epic' and/or 'heroic'.   This shoot stretched me because normally my lifestyle shoots I tend to shoot with a wide open aperture (F2.8) but in this case I wanted the background to remain in focus.   I also wanted to expose for the sky and that meant I would need to external flash to light up my subject.  Anyway, I was pleased and so is my client.  

Subscribers to the Canadian Wildlife magazine can see the full story on June 24th when it is published.
