As most folks know, I love photographing faces and portraits. But I also love the meditative experience of studying and capturing flowers. I love the subtleties and unique personalities of each flower. Our Ottawa Tulip Festival offers such a plentiful of opportunities to photograph such a variety of colourful tulips, but I prefer photographing them in black & white and either in pre-bloom or even as they’re on their last legs and dying. As a commercial/corporate photographer, it’s always been super important to find personal imagery to shoot - it’s my fuel!
