Group Photo Display at OPHS

Well another Christmas Concert has come and gone. It was TREMENDOUS again this year! Such talent in Oxbow! Mrs. Jeannot did a fantastic job putting it all together and the kids stole the show with their acting and singing. I took the group shots again this year which worked very well. I was glad I could attend the production and nab a few photos from the performance.

For the group shots, I setup a triflash into my Photek Softlighter. It made for a good big group light!


But anyways, here’s the group shots and the candids from tonights performance. Bravo kids! You rocked the set! 😎


OPHS Christmas Formal

The photos are done! This was a tremendously exciting project to work on! Me and my most beautiful photo assistant Β (and wife) πŸ™‚ were blessed to be able to cover the OPHS Christmas Formal. It consisted of an hour and a half of portraits and then an hour and a half of candids at the dance. Pictures were on an ad hoc basis, come one come all. It was fast paced and quickly changing minute to minute for individuals, groups, and bigger groups! It was a metric tonne of fun! Then came the dance. It was candid photo mania! 😎 It was a great opportunity that I was happy to take part in. All the photos from the event will be available for purchase from OPHS as a school fundraiser. I have included two quick collages of but a wee sliver of the images! πŸ˜†

Nutcracker in Action!

The show went off without a hitch today! We took in the 1:30PM showing and it was a riot! The kids did fantastically well and our kids loved watching it. They were very into the show and sat pretty good which was a bonus because I was taking the mad photos during the production. Very challenging photography scenario as I was pretty far back from the stage and off to the side. Plus the lighting was very uneven which made for tricky exposures. But, I was able to make a few shots which turned out all right. And, it was nice to see the display setup of the photos I took of the cast & the groups. Photos in print, it can’t get any better! 8)

I was happy to be able to do the photos for the event and they will be on display in the foyer at the school the day of the presentation. We did group shots of all the various performers in the musical as well as cast portraits that look smashing in black and white. An online gallery of the photos has been provided for the school and parents if they wish to download the full resolution photos to have as a keepsake. Both colour and black & white photos have been made available, as well as 4×6 & 8×10 sizings. Click here to visit the gallery.
