Goodbye Tumblr

I'm done with Tumblr. I've been slowly purging social networks. In the past I've gotten rid of Facebook, Eyeem, and others I've already forgotten about. A few days ago I purged Tumblr. Honestly what was the point of it for me? I was just reposting what I was posting here. For what a duplicate of my site? Nah. I'm down to 2 social networks. Twitter were I'll dump links to posts and respond to peoples questions about film and my work. Instagram where I'll post random photos from traveling and some work, and the only other "Social Network" I've signed…

A New Site, A New Direction

My first post on my blog was made on March 15, 2012. More than 2 1/2 years ago I started this blog as a personal site to display my images on a day to day basis. Since then my photography has evolved. I continued to post regularly until earlier this year when I realized I wasn't posting for myself anymore. I was throwing up images for the sake of it and it wasn't doing me any good. When I traveled to Dublin this year for work it hit me that general street photography was not going to cut it…

Nuit Blanche 2014

Last year I attended Nuit Blanche here in Toronto for the first time. Even though I’ve lived in this city for the last 8 years I’ve always been too busy to attend.

This year was even more of a disappointment except for a large dance parade that went down Yonge street and up Bay street. Most of the images are from that particular event since the most interesting characters were in the crowd. The big disappointment for me is it feels…

A New Photography Project?

I wrote a mini-essay on my main portfolio site about this image, along with others, and how I’m thinking of developing this into a larger project. Ireland was hit hard during the recession and you can see the scars all around Dublin as well as the country side. Abandoned service stations, businesses, and even whole housing communities. In the essay I said I would document not only Ireland but other countries including my own, but now a week later I feel I should start by concentrating on Ireland and see if it drives me to photograph this subject back…

Giant's Causeway

Giant's Causeway, Northern Ireland (September 2014) Leica M9 + Canon 50mm f/1.4 LTM Took a trip up north to Northern Ireland last weekend to see the Giant's Causeway and the Dark Hedges of Ireland, in County Antrim. Giant's Causeway was quite beautiful and I recommend those traveling to Ireland to make the trek out there if you have the time. But don't make the same mistake I did and get there too late. I arrived at 11:30am and the place was swarming with people. The earlier the better. -Dominic…
