Marty the ZebraSo one day I was at a farm and giggling when one of my brides said I want to shoot with a zebra. All I could think of was as a little kid Bo Derek on a Zebra riding across the TV screen with my brothers gawking at her beauty. Then after that thought I thought of Marty from Madagascar and I said Krista I have no idea where a Zebra would be to shoot with. She looked at me and said I have that all taken care of. All I could do was smile and say okay you found a stuffed zebra, and she said no really there is one down the road at a farm. I smiled again and said I am up for everything you ask. LOL! So we had a day in the field with you know it Marty the Zebra. Oh man this was a blast. So Krista and Jodeyne and Julie and Tim her in-laws all came to the farm down the road that had Marty the Zebra at it.

So we got  to the farm and I got into the paddock that Marty lives in and the owners also have 2 Lamas named Cleo and Aladdin, and they had a Donkey. Um if you did not know Donkey was named donkey, and if they don’t like ya look out. Well would you not know it I was the first one into the paddock because I grew up on a horse farm and Marty and Donkey loved me. Loved me so much as I walked in they would not leave me alone. I just did not want to get squared by the donkey in the you know what. LOL! Not kidding that is why farmers put Donkeys into the livestock! They are the ultimate protector and animals worry about getting hurt by them.

Over a few minutes the Lamas decided to join into the fun too. Um ya watch out for them because they run and they kick and they Spit Boogers! Cleo decided to start hacking up and I looked at her and said don’t you dare! It was like she smiled and said RIGHT I would never. I bent down into my camera bag and she fired right over my head. LOL! I stood up and looked at her and flashed her with my flash gun. She took off! I was laughing, ’cause they always say never work with kids or animals. And what do I do best? Yup I diver right in with them.

Here is a peek-a-boo of that shoot! I had the best time that day, and Marty and Krista were awesome! Ya all rock! Yeah Marty!

Skate8PointsI honestly have the best life. I have the best wife I could ever imagine, I have great family members, I have had an amazing career traveling the world performing, competing, and doing business, and shooting images. I also have had some great bosses in my life too. No matter where I have travels in the world I meet people and I have had some doozies of bosses too. From starting out as a Janitor with I was 13 and then starting to work at 16 for the Ontario Government, to working for television and movie productions in Canada, the USA, and the UK, and Russia. Out of all of those bosses and coaches that I have trained with and also have worked for there are only a few that have left emotional footprints in my heart for a life time. If those bosses or people read this they will know who I am talking about because the time we spent together was so positive and we made a difference in people lives.

If you have taken a moment and read my bio page on Serenity Photo I am a not just a photographer, but I am a performer and coach, and producer, and entrepreneur. Well I try to be anyhow. Saying that I would like to take a moment to say that I am working with one of the most amazing women on the planet, her name is Monica Lockie and she and her family are truly an inspiration. I have never in my life have had a chance to work with a lady in this fashion. I am amazed how she can take all the kids in the Skate8Points School and put so many smiles onto their faces just through our sport alone. The thing is that Monica also does is she puts her family first before everything. The love that she has for them is simply pure. You can see the love, trust, and devotion that she has for her loved ones. She has the team, always evolving to make the school better but better yet she find the people that take ownership and also accountability for their actions and she finds that her team has a caring trust and admiration for each other. It is not only about winning in our sport that counts most, it is about developing the people that can guide child can become successful in any faction of their lives.

When this past week went by I took some shots of the skaters out on the ice, and as much as they think I am a goofball and Shrek or the friendly giant I got to spend some time as a photog with them. Here are just a few of the images that I shot of them, just take a look at their SMILES! They are infectious! KIDS ARE OUR FUTURE! HELP THEM SMILE LIKE THE SKATE8POINTS  Skating school does. No matter age, no matter size, no matter where you are from all are welcome to come join into the “SMILE REVOLUTION!”

Congrats to the Skater, The Parents, to Monica, to the Coaches, to the whole team of people that make this camp happen.

It is Amazing to be a part of!

My Dedication to Bob Probert

My Dedication to Bob Probert

Battle of the Blades S1 E1 Cast Image - by Sean RiceJodeyne and I were so fortunate over our years of being athletes that met many other wonderful athletes from many different sports. It was 21 years ago when I met Bob Probert an amazing defense man in the NHL. The Enforcer was the name given to him and proved to be true over his entire career. The other men on the ice respected him and some were simply intimidated of him. I was one of the lucky…

It isn’t very often in your life that you get to meet a person that makes you smile so much and one that opens their heart to you like Annie did for me. I have known her since she was 12 when Jodeyne and I taught her at a skating seminar while she was skating with her brother in the 90′s. Now as a mid 20 year old we are super close friends today. Having skated for us and lived with us last winter in Myrtle Beach, SC skating in a production together for Christmas, I sat one night thinking how am I going to edit and start to make a book for her that will mean something super special. I set out to sort through 1000′s of images I have of Annie and I broke them down to a few hundred, and then I found a few of my favourites of her to share with you. With much anticipation and a huge virtual hug I would like to share with you a few of those edited images that I am going to hang in my gallery one day soon. No matter what when you meet people in your life that leave foot steps in your heart this is one of those people that did this for me.

Luv you loads Annie!
