Lots of great presentations to listen to and photograph today at the #TEDxCollingwood.  #collingwood #collingwoodontario #eventphotography
One I captured this evening.  My first time doing a twilight shoot for a house and a few other firsts on this shoot for me as well.  Overall pleased but I see some areas for improvement for next time. Best of all - Now I have a few examples to advertise with.  #twilight #realestatephotography #realestate #lightpainting #collingwoodontario #canon6d #canoncameras
Here's a shot from earlier this week taken for an architectural publication of this historical building - The Highland Manor Inn in Owen Sound . At the time of construction in 1872 it was one of the finest examples of high Victorian architecture in all of Canada.  And now it operates as a bed and breakfast - so you can sleep there. Haha. On a more personal note, the ceiling molding not lining up with the centre of the bay window gives me mild anxiety.  Lol.  #architecture #publication #interiorphotography #eggplant #victorian #owensound #canoncameras #canon6d
The first of today's three shoots was pretty interesting! Pretty cool piece of heavy machinery but my quad copter has more rotors. Haha. #helicopter #videoshoot #onthefarm #aircraft
Picking some of our veggies from the garden today and came across this fella. I think it's my first time seeing a monarch caterpillar besides the time we hatched them as a class in senior kindergarten haha. After this cell phone snap we transported him to the milkweed we've kept on the property for just such an occasion. #monarchbutterfly #monarchcaterpillar #caterpillar #samsunggalaxy #mobilephotography
One of four pieces going to the BMFA today for an art show this August showcasing Canadian Wildlife. This bighorn was captured in Jasper Alberta in 2009.  15"x16" print mounted to a hand made wooden panel and finished with two coats of high gloss resin. Other pieces being delivered are a pair of loons from Champion Lake in BC, a black bear foraging in Peachland BC and a trio of airborne Kokannee Salmon making their annual run upstream in Kelowna BC.  Curious how I made them? Two videos on my youtube can answer that for you - one for resin coating pieces like this one and one for building panels and mounting the prints to them. Or come see me for the show opener August 3rd at the BMFA Gallery in downtown Collingwood.  #bighornsheep #Jasper #JasperNP  #wildlife #artresin #BMFA #galleryshow #collingwoodontario #galleryshow #photoprint #resin
Just playing around - First time shooting with a moving target... err... subject.  #cottagelife #drone #uav #aerial #followcam #muskoka #sunset #boating  #dji #4k #djiphantom #summerfun
Made it out for a little recreational flight this evening.  The view west towards #Thornbury and #Meaford from somewhere above #BlueMountain #drone #uav #4k #dji #djiphantom #GeorgianBay #scenic #airtime #viewsformiles
In addition to photo and video I am doing an accurately measured architectural style floorplan for this behemoth of a house today. So much more to offer than your average real estate photographer.  The properties like this are why I love what I do. #floorplan #architecture #realestate #luxuryproperty #realtor #collingwoodontario #GeorgianBay #homeforsale
Here's a "tiny planet" type spherical panorama but it's one of the first few I've captured from the sky with a drone versus the standard earthbound tiny planets I've made in the past.  Captured during a little recreational flight time yesterday before sunset.  #uav #aerialphotography #tinyplanet #sphericalpanorama #collingwoodontario #drone #green #landscape #scenic #djiphantom
I shot for a realtor for the first time last week and she liked my work so much she asked me to shoot her house - just because - its not even for sale. www.cgardiner.ca/architecture  #realtor #realestatephotography #propertyphotography #landscaping #home #exterior #property #acreage #newfavorite #collingwoodontario #collingwood #georgianbay #pond #reflections #likeglass #collingwoodphotographer #customhome #green #greenery
.
Captured with my #CanonEOS6D - not a cell phone photo like the rest of my feed is.
Having lived in a more than century old farm house for a year, I really appreciated being able to shoot this - even older, pre-confederation farm house, today.  Loads of cool stuff in this place but they had a Masters Flag signed by #ArnoldPalmer - you know the lemonade and ice tea guy? Haha. 
One house down, one more to go. Next it's off to Meaford.  #farmhouse #loghome #old #rustic #realestatephotography #realestate #canoncameras #interiorphotography #realtor #professionalphotographer #collingwoodontario #collingwoodphotographer #greybrucesimcoe
