From the Base to the Bass

Busy month for me as I did a slew of projects and traveled from Canada to New York and back home. Some of the stand out projects this month:

Departure Ceremony

Independence day weekend - American reserve troops stand in a departure ceremony saying goodbye to their friends and families before leaving for up to a year.

I volunteered my time to these troops and their families on this day to photograph each of them so they can remember each other on the far side of the world.

Regardless of your political beliefs this event was very humbling. These troops and their families willingly make a sacrifice the majority would never consider. I have a great respect to the American men and women who so bravely serve our country, we would not be here if they did not.

This was a 4th of July event I will never forget.

On the music front I produced a new track called "Tranquility Bass"; this hard hitting trance track also features a video showcasing the various synthesizers I used to create the original track. Check out the video here:

Photos from my trip to New York will start hitting my Flickr account this month. I hadn't been to NYC since I was about 10 years old but I remember it vividly and I wasn't disappointed. From the top of the Empire State building to Liberty Island I was truly amazing at this city

Let Freedom Ring

I also did another round of Bellydance photos this month. This time through I took a more subtle approach with the backdrops and tried to capture a unique perspective of the essence of each dancer.

I used a new product by "Digital Film Tools" called light that was amazing to work with on this project. Check out this plug in here
