Devon Matsalla | National Capital Region Bagpiper

Devon Matsalla, Bagpiper, National Capital Region

This past weekend I had the great pleasure of meeting, and hearing, Devon Matsalla – a bagpiper based in the National Capital Region. A bagpipe is always a great way to highlight a special moment, so if you’re looking to add the sounds of a traditional wind instrument to your event then I’d recommend giving Devon a call.

Earlier today I had the great honour of photographing a group of graduating law clerks on the front steps of the Supreme Court of Canada – Canada’s highest and final court of appeal. After cracking a few lawyer jokes to get the smiles flowing I quickly got down to business by using my brand new Canon TS-E 24mm tilt-shift lens to capture these photos. Among other benefits, the use of a 24mm wide-angle camera lens here allowed me to balance a clear focus on both the people and the architecture, and with respect to the architecture, apply some shift corrections in the lens to ensure the symmetry of the building’s lines evenly lined up in a parallel fashion. Overall, I love these pictures, and the razor sharp performance of my new Canon TS-E 24mm lens! The 640px sized images you see here for quick internet viewing doesn’t give the quality of this lens justice…LOL…but when blown to a larger size for prints or viewing the clarity is totally amazing. For those who have been considering the purchase of a tilt-shift lens, I would highly recommend the investment. For some added symbolism, I also captured the Peace Tower on Parliament Hill in my pictures to emphasize the important link the rule of law plays with supporting a healthy, vibrant, and accountable democracy. As always, more than just a photo with Jeffrey Meyer Photography. To everyone in the picture, I had a blast photographing you guys, and congratulations again to you on your successes and hard work!

Erika Nielsen | Principal Cellist, Sudbury Symphony Orchestra

Erika Nielsen, Principal Cellist, with the Sudbury Symphony Orchestra

Erika Nielsen, Principal Cellist, accepts flowers and well deserve praise after performing a flawless solo performance before a captivated crowd in Sudbury, Ontario. Watching Erika perform Saint-Saëns’ stunning Concerto No.1 for Cello and Orchestra was a most uplifting experience for me, and the passion and intensity she created in her moment of focus was clearly received by the audience as deeply moving and very genuine. If you happen to live in the Sudbury area, then I’d highly recommend you check out the great events the Sudbury Symphony Orchestra is performing, and of course, Erika’s talents on the Cello. Art and passion at its finest…

Earlier this summer I had the wonderful opportunity to connect with my good friend Jennifer Lecompte – Copy Editor and Writer for faveMen Magazine – and Jason Portnoy – Founder of True Rivalry sport fashions, based in Montreal, Québéc. Over a span of an hour I snapped some fun pictures of Jason sporting a few of his t-shirt fashion designs at the Mill Street Brew Pub, while Jenn asked some great questions to write about the man behind growing the True Rivalry sports empire. To check out Jennifer’s faveMEN article and learn more about Jason and his True Rivalry business venture, be sure to check them out here.
