I moved to Montreal in 1999 from the UK and fell in love with this vibrant city which I now call home. Having recently re-found my love for photography, I decided to start a blog documenting the numerous places and attractions that make Montreal such a great place to live and visit.
My aim is to cover specific places and photograph the s**t out of them. In addition to providing images, I want to also give some historic and other interesting facts of each place I cover – being a relatively new resident, I still have much to uncover about the history and discovering new places of interest off the well beaten tourist tracks.
In addition to there being so many great places (some beautiful, some not), what makes Montreal such a great city are the vast number of festivals that take place throughout the year. So another aspect of this blog will be coverage of events taking place, from the International Jazz festival to Igloo Fest.
On January 1 2012, I began a 365 project which requires me to take and post at least 1 picture every day. After 6 months, I admit that I am now addicted, so much so, that I rarely only post 1 picture a day and have likely taken more pictures in the last 6 months than in my entire life – and I’m no spring chicken
As I said, photography is my new found hobby, and between documenting various places/events, I plan to blog about photography techniques I’m trying to attempt for the first time or improve upon – HDR, long exposure, time-lapse and more.
If you live in Montreal, or planning a visit, I hope this blog will be of some interest.
Your feedback is always welcome, so if you have ideas for posts, want to meet up, have a photo walk, give me a shout.
Should you like my work and be interested in hiring me to shoot your car, home, place of work, event or even your dog, don’t hesitate to contact me for pricing, packages and availability. Likewise if you happen to see an image on the site that you would really like to have hanging over your fireplace (or wherever, I’m not selective), let me know
Thanks for visiting Montreal in Pictures.
