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.

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.

Art superposé

Alors que je donnais un cours privé de photographie à un gentil couple au Musée National des Beaux-Arts de Québec,  la superposition s’est faite devant mes yeux. Je n’ai pas eu le choix de prendre la photo et démontrer quelques techniques de composition à mes élèves…

Pour un moment, oubliez vos opinions politiques. Être nommé ministre, c’est un sommet politique important. Y être nommé est probablement un moment rempli d’émotion pour ceux et celle qui prêtent serment. Lors de l’assermentation des ministres du nouveau Cabinet libéral, ma caméra a donc capté quelques moments plus intéressants que la simple signature du registre. En voici quelques-uns.
