We are very proud to have had the privilege of photographing Dr. Anthony Galea for the TEDxIUM event in Monaco. “Small is the new Big” is the theme for this event that will be held on June 06. Dr.Galea will be speaking about how he sees future advancements in the medical field.

Dr. Galea is a renowned sports medicine doctor and is the Founder and Medical Director of the Institute of Sports Medicine Health & Wellness Center. He has been a sports medicine doctor at the Olympics, team physician for the Toronto Argonauts and a consultant and sports medicine doctor for numerous high profile athletes such as Tie Domi, Jamal Lewis, Alex Rodriguez and Tiger Woods. He is listed as being among the top 2% of sports physicians in the world and are pleased to see such an accomplished Canadian doctor featured on TED Talks and recognized for all of his medical achievements.

A few years ago Dr. Galea saw my portrait of Umberto Eco and in seeing that photo he said he was enamored with how I captured Eco’s personality.  After reviewing other images from that series he decided that I would be the person he would choose to photograph him and this turned out to be the right occasion.

Its been a while since the last time we dug into The Vault. For this entry I wanted to go back and take a look at some contact sheets from large format film. I found images I shot in 1995 of the very beautiful Libby who was with Ford Models.

I shot this with my huge bad boy 5x7inch Linhof Technica camera. Impressive detail from this size negative even on the contact sheet. I used Kodak Tri-x film and probably used HC-110 to develop it. I have no idea how many megapixels it would be?! It could be hundreds, even thousands! Who knows?!

I’m hoping to take this puppy out on location this summer and shoot some more personal work.

 

#93119 B&W of Farley Mowatt

 

It saddens me to hear that Canada has lost one of its greats, Farley Mowat.

I had the opportunity to photograph Farley and I will be forever grateful for the time spent with this colourful and charismatic being. His writing has touched countless people around the world and he has set the foundation for many lives and experiences through his words.

Hearing his engaging first hand counts of his fantastic tales was a once in a lifetime experience and I will never forget our encounter. Mr. Mowat  will be greatly missed.
