Vous échangez par courriel avec un client en vue d’un contrat potentiel pour finalement vous entendre sur les détails. Est-ce cet échange via Internet, sans signature manuscrite, peut servir de contrat aux yeux de la loi? Pourrez-vous poursuivre votre client si les choses tournent mal grâce à ces courriels? La réponse courte: oui.

Cette vidéo d’Éducaloi vous explique la chose. Désolé, on dirait une éducatrice en service de garde qui parle à des enfants de quatre ans, mais l’information est tout de même pertinente.

L’Artiste Dan Twitchell m’a approché pour utiliser une des mes photos en peinture. Le résultat est spectaculaire. C’est la seconde fois qu’une de mes photos de Jerry Hunter est utilisé, et la 3e qu’une photo d’un Pow Wow de Wendake l’est.

Jerry Hunter, a native of Lac-Simon indian Reservation and wearing Algonquin traditional dresses and paint, takes part into the dance contest of Wendake Pow-Wow July 31, 2010. The Algonquins (also spelled Algonkins) are aboriginal/First Nations inhabitants of North America who speak the Algonquin language, a divergent dialect of the Ojibwe language, which is part of the Algonquian language family.

Vous recevez un courriel. « Je suis en Afrique. J’ai une proposition d’affaires. Envoyez-moi du matériel électronique que je vais revendre. Nous allons séparer les profits 50-50 »

« Bon, un autre fraudeur », dites-vous en supprimant le courriel. Mais si c’était le début d’une histoire qui allait changer la fin de centaines de personnes?

Voici l’incroyable histoire de Ben Taylor, et Joel, vivant au Libéria. Un arnaqueur? Ben a décidé de « jouer le jeu », question de faire perdre son temps au fraudeur. Il lui demande d’aller prendre des photos autour de chez lui et Ben achèterait les photos qui l’intéresseraient. Après avoir reçu des photos horribles prises avec un téléphone-flip de 15 ou 20 ans, Ben décide de prendre une chance. Et si Joel n’était pas un arnaqueur? Qui sait. Peut-être que l’histoire du prince nigérien qui veut vous donner son héritage est parfois vraie.

Engagement photography Quebec city

Old Quebec City. Is there a better place for engagement photography than “Le Vieux-Québec”, as it is known locally. Whenever you go, wherever you look, there are amazing backdrops waiting for you to create great photographs. 

Old brick walls, cobblestone streets, old buildings and there are huge trees in amazing parks. It’s also, the only walled city north of Mexico. All of these factors might make Quebec City the best place in North America for engagement photography.

This is why this nice couple contacted me recently. They were visiting Quebec City and the gentlemen decided it would be the best place to ask her to marry him.

We regrouped at the Parc des Gouverneurs near the Château Frontenac to get some funny photos as they threw leaves in the air and at each other. We then took a short, two minute walk to the Plains of Abraham to get the classic photo with the Château Frontenac hotel in the background. 

After a quick stop in Montmorency Park, we headed straight for the city walls for the cherry on the cake: the photo on top of the wall and the gate. We finished the day with a blast.
