Why we do, What we do

Here I was… the middle of spring and the beginning of Vikings filming. Here we were in the fourth season of the show and finally getting hit with true Irish weather. Mud that was ankle deep and torrential rain over the course of two days. We were on the last scene of the day, the rain finally stopped and gave way to this gorgeous sunset. The warm glow of light pouring through the artificial mist, warming the crew and

Traveling With Your Gear

There I was on a Sunday night. Beer in hand and contemplating what to pack for my trip to LA. Not what needs to go in my suitcase, that was done, but what needs to get packed into my camera bag. The first thing I decided to do was pack both the M7 and M9 with three lenses and a ton of film. Knowing full right that I would have only one night and one morning free to go

Purple

NYC (December 2015)

Leica M9; Leica 18mm Super-Elmar-M

“PURPLE!! HEY PURPLE, WHERE YA GOIN GIRL!!” “DAMN GIRL COME BACK!” When I was walking up Broadway Avenue this woman blasted past me. A woman on a mission. Just as she rips through the intersection a group of guys start calling out to her. Begging her to come back and asking her where she’s going. You gotta love how much “life” is on the streets of New York. It never gets old. In regards to the images, I think

Travelogue: Vancouver [Audio]

Vancouver, BC (December 2015) 
Leica M9; Leica 50mm Summilux-M Pre-ASPH (III)

I tried writing out what I felt when I was in Vancouver but thought it was best that I just speak my mind, so I did an audio log. Some people may disagree with what I have to say, that’s fine. Its just my opinion and nothing else. If you feel like you want to speak your mind, or have something to add, feel free to do so in the comments section below. -Dominic

Travel Journal: Victoria ~ Vancouver

Victoria, BC (December 2015)

Leica M9; Leica 18mm Super-Elmar

A gorgeous view of an island shaped by shadow and light. Remote, quiet and peaceful. And here I am weaving between the islands dotting the path from point A to point B. It’s been a while since I took the ferry from Victoria to Vancouver. I’ve forgotten how beautiful the views are. So peaceful. I used to take this ferry almost every weekend when I lived in Vancouver. I would pop over to Victoria on the weekend. Gorge on

Travel Journal: Victoria

Victoria, BC (December 2015)

Leica M9; Leica 50mm Summilux Pre-ASPH (III)

It’s odd being back in Victoria. Every time I return to the island I end up spending less and less time here. I grew up here, but find that not much has changed. Yes there are more condos and maybe more people living here but generally it hasn’t changed that much. Other trips to Victoria usually resulted in me taking quite a few photographs over the trip, but this time, that wasn’t the case. I felt like I needed

Update: Assignment A Week

Alright. I think I need to re-name the Assignment A Week project. I’ve tried my hardest to produce one project a week, but due to my crazy schedule I honestly can’t achieve it. I’m still going to continue producing assignments for myself, they’re just gonna be trickling out at a slower pace due to my schedule. If I get spurts of time, I’ll produce more. I was really hoping this would work out, but unfortunately my day job takes

Opinion: Finding The Lens That Speaks To You

IMG_20151018_105214_edit

I’ve been debating this question in my head for a while. How do you actually go about finding the lens that “speaks” to you. No one just grabs a camera and says to themselves, yup the 35mm is for me. At first maybe. Maybe you grab that lens and you feel comfortable with it. But at some point you’ll get bored and more than likely that lens never sparked anything in you. You might then go ahead and buy

Travel Journal: New York (Day 2)

NYC (December 2015)

Leica M9; Leica 18mm f/3.8 Super-Elmar

Saturday was my photography day as my wife likes to put it. Walk her to the closest shopping area, map out her stores, then carry on. So my first instinct was to head straight down to Chinatown and Little Italy. These are always locations I have to hit when I’m in New York. There’s just so much chaos and activity there. I did make one pit stop on my way down at Dashwood Books to pick up a copy
