It's been busy

Hi all, 

I'm home from my first week of college! Let me just say, I have never been more thankful for peace and quiet in my life! 

So as you may have been able to tell from the number of photos that have been uploaded to this site over the past month and a bit, I've been extraordinarily busy! 

From the last weekend in July til yesterday things really have been non-stop for me and my photography. Shall we do a little recap? 

The last weekend in July saw me road-tripping to Pontiac, MI to watch a friend (and the KWSC pairs teams) compete at their first competition of the season.

I was excited that I got to see some of Maddie's training mates skate for the first time and get to know them a little bit, as well as see our teams compete their new programs for the first time. I brought my camera in hopes that I could take some photos of them (which I did) but it caused a bit of a kerfluffle so, they weren't the best photos ever.

We headed home on Saturday (took the "scenic route" of course) and were back on the road on Thursday, headed to Indianapolis, Indiana for the Indy Pairs Challenge. I always find the Indy Pairs Challenge to also be a photographer's challenge, since the rinks have extremely dim lighting. It was a pretty good weekend of skating and photography for sure. Our teams pretty much dominated their flights. Only downfall was that on the night before we left I got a fever and couldn't go out to party with the team. Ah well, there's always next year!

After Indy we drove home and I got a couple of days rest before Summer Sizzle, which I worked for my boss (D'Asti Photography). Then, the weekend after Sizzle we were off to Thornhill to photograph FSB Summer Skate! This competition was a big deal for me - it was the first one I was working as one of the official photographers under my own name. It was a tonne of fun, a lot of long hours, but a great experience! I got to meet so many people and take so many photos and see so much great skating. It was four days a pure awesome! Here are a few highlights: 

After Thornhill I spent one long and cold day in Strathroy with the CSCS skaters, taking photos of each of them for their website. Then I moved into residence at Humber College, and on Tuesday my classes started, which brings us up to speed as to where I am now. (I'm actually home for the weekend). 

Here is the view from my room:

Hope everyone's school year got off to a good start!
