Istanbul, Turkey | Blue Mosque & Sultanahemt Park, Snowfall

Flash blizzard in Istanbul, Turkey — Blue Mosque, Sultanahemt Park

Enjoying the ultra-spectacular sights and sounds of prayers resonating from the Blue Mosque and its minarets. And making this moment extra special for me was the opportunity to enjoy it from Sultanahmet Park under a relatively heavy and rare snowfall. Wintertime is indeed picturesque! This mosque was constructed between 1606 and 1616, and is located next to the equally impressive Aya Sofya.

Ottawa Event Photographer | Atlantic University Pub Night

Atlantic University Pub Night, Volunteer Organizers

Over the past six years a loyal team of volunteers has joined forces to organize a social gathering in downtown Ottawa for alumni and friends of Atlantic Canadian universities. The annual event takes place at Hooley’s Pub on 292 Elgin St., and goes by the name “Atlantic University Pub Night”, or AUPN for short. Every the year the party grows bigger, and brings together school spirit from all across the Atlantic. This year the event saw approximately 350 alumni from over 15 Atlantic Canada universities in attendance. Live music, social networking, school spirit and door prizes all add up for some good times, along with local support for the Ottawa Food Bank, which the event helped raise $1,650 dollars for through door cover donations! Jeffrey Meyer is proud to be the official photographer for the annual Atlantic University Pub Night in Ottawa, and pictures from AUPN 2012 can be seen and shared on Facebook by clicking here!

Backyard Wedding Portraits

On this beautiful day – filled with a warm summer heat and a bright sun – I had the great pleasure of photographing the backyard wedding ceremony of Danielle and Brian. Whether it’s in your very own backyard, or a chosen venue found in the public domain, Jeffrey Meyer takes the time to photograph you with symbolism and style that matters to you. In this picture we not only see a newlywed couple sharing a happy momment with each other, but also their love for flowers and peonies which they took the time to grow in time for their special day. I love being a wedding photographer, and taking pictures with a layered story!

Ottawa Nature Photographer | Transit of Venus 2012

Transit of Venus, 2012, as seen from Ottawa, Ontario

This “once in a lifetime” photo was taken at 19:05:54 on June 5, 2012 in Ottawa, Ontario. In attendance was my good friend and fellow photographer, Fernando Matias. Working together, we combined our camera gear by stacking our Canon EF 70-200mm IS lenses with 2 polarizers and 2 EF Extenders 2xII to effectively create a 800mm lens. We took this picture at 1/8000 of a second using an aperture value of 64 and an ISO rating of 50 – In other words, we did as much as we could to get in as close as we could while reducing the intensity of the light. What a moment! The bright dot is the sun, and the tiny black dot is Venus. Photography safety tip #1: Protect your eyes by remembering to never look directly at the sun!

On April 26, 2012, I had the great pleasure to photograph a reception in honour of Mount Allison University’s 50th Rhodes Scholar – Rebecca Anne Dixon. The event took place on Parliament Hill in Room 256-S, Centre Block. In attendance was several Parliamentarians from both the Senate and House of Commons, along with university alumni, friends and family of Rebecca. The Rhodes scholarship is known as the “world’s oldest and most prestigious international graduate scholarship.” It is awarded for study at the University of Oxford, and bestowed on the basis of academic achievement and strength of character. Featured here is Rebecca shaking hands with the Honourable Bob Rae, Member of Parliament for Toronto Center – and a former Rhodes Scholar himself in attendance to congratulate Rebecca.

Congratulations Rebecca, and all the best in your studies!

Nature Photography by Jeffrey Meyer – Man in the Moon

When I photographed the moon on this fine evening it smiled back down at me…LOL…what a super great moment for some photography fun!

Photography tip: This picture is called a “composite photograph” which means it was artificially created by combining elements from other pictures, or in this case, the same picture divided up into crescent moons and reconfigured! With digital photography, and a bit of Photoshop CS5 knowhow, anything is possible, so go ahead, have some fun!
