Hockey…Hockey…Hockey!

Congratulations Dundas Real McCoy's on your 2014 Allan Cup Victory! The entire week was full of energy from the volunteers, organizers and teams. I had a great time shooting for Hamilton Scores "The voice of the #HamOnt amateur sport community". All my photographs from the event can be viewed at www.Presentitphoto.com (Direct Link-2014 Allan Cup) Please enjoy my favourite picks from the tournament.

Last year I posted about the Real McCoy's because they sponsored the newly added Atom Select team. Since adopted by the DMHA they were known as the Dundas Jr. Real McCoy's. Being part of a small community it is nice to have the boys mentored by an amazing group of local hockey players. The McCoy's sponsored the boys who were in hockey limbo and gave time to run a very special practice. Read More: They Sure Are the Real McCoy  | Hockey Links

Real_McCoys_HelpOn a personal note, my little guy tried out for rep that year and didn't make it. The coach of the Atom Selects was a former Real McCoy's player giving his time to share the love of the game. A wonderful parent network and commitment to the team led to lifetime experiences for our boys. These moments add growth to our children and deepens the ambition to be better hockey players. In my sons case, he wanted to try out for the rep team again. Once again he didn't make it. In light of some events he was asked to join the team. He had a great hockey year and the team building experiences are unforgettable. Now that hockey tryouts are around the corner, he has come to play. The Allan Cup Championship game has momentum that is inspiring to a young athlete. Mentorship is not only a one time moment, it is an ongoing connection and relationship.

The feedback from the 2014 Allan Cup by community members give a sense of loyalty and pride. I am pleased to present this video from the Championship day!

It was an extremely busy week. Just coming out of the OBA's in Windsor my computer hard drive failed. Creative Technologies in Burlington has worked hard to get me up and running. I hope to have a newly revised machine by the end of the week. Now among all that my daughter caught that awful hacking cold and was off school all week, my son had multiple sports-lessons and his birthday celebrations, I was shooting tons of hockey, my colleague from the Syracuse Crunch was in town to shoot the Bulldogs and I was hosting Easter Dinner.  Needless to say I stopped to smell the roses in the beautiful flower bouquet from by sweetheart. Ahhhhhhhhh got it all done though!

As I wind down from hockey season, I will be processing the last of the images and putting together a portfolio specific to hockey.  Dave Black, SI photographer said my football is strong, but where is all the hockey? If I'm from Canada I should have more hockey in my portfolio. Well ya gotta listen and do when someone like Dave gives you advice. OH and I am very excited...no wait jumpy excited to meet with Dave Sandford-NHL photographer to gain some valuable photographic advice. It's kinda funny because I first met Dave Sandford back in 1997 at an event I was running. Yesterday when I was going through some photos I found this one one of a future NHL'r from the Whitby area. Jason Ward played in the OLA Celebrity Lacrosse Challenge. Here he is with NHL greats (L-R backrow: Adam Foot, Gary Roberts, Jason Ward, Joe Nieuwendyk, Colin Patterson. L-R Front Row: Darren Pang, Doug Gilmore, Brendan Shanahan, Stan Johnathan) all played lacrosse to improve their hockey skills.

At the time I was the Marketing Director for the OLA. I was just starting out as a photographer back then on film and we hired a professional photographer for the event to take the team shots. Such a small world to come full circle, live in a small town, support our local team and find a photo with some history.  Photo: Real McCoy, Jason Ward (1997) and NHL Celebrities

One last shout out...THANK YOU DMHA for the feedback on the 2013- 2014 Yearbook. The positive response and the enjoyment the membership has shared has been overwhelming. It is always a lot of work for all the volunteers and community to gather and submit the images and content, but they did an amazing job! Amy Yanover, DMHA Sponsorship bent over backwards to keep the deadlines and we accomplished amazing things together as a team. It is a true pleasure to design and include my own photographs for the Dundas hockey community to enjoy for a lifetime. "The yearbooks are great...very glossy, colourful and professional! Thank you!"..."Awesome yearbook cover!"..."The yearbook is awesome and a great keepsake for our family..."Best Yearbook EVER!!!"...

Real McCoys Pick Up 2nd Allan Cup Win

Source: Larry Robertson (Hamilton Scores)

DUNDAS—Ryan Christie was everywhere – even trapped on his back in the Bentley Generals net – as the Dundas Real McCoys skated to a 6-2 victory in the second day of preliminary round play in the 2014 Allan Cup Hockey Tournament Tuesday night (April 15) at the JL Grightmire Arena.

The Dundas Real McCoys score, en route to a 6-2 victory over Bentley Generals on Tuesday night at the Grightmire Arena. 

Earlier in the day, Clarenville Newfoundland and Labrador Caribous defeated Kenora Thistles, 5-2.Dundas leads preliminary play with two wins.

_RLW9326

On Wednesday (April 16) in preliminary round play, Brantford Blast takes on Clarenville at 3:30 p.m. followed by the Generals- South East Prairie Thunder contest at 7:30 p.m.

Christie with all his rambunctious play finished the night with a shorthanded goal and an assist, and six minutes in penalties.

_RLW7902

On the scoreboard, Greg Stewart led the Dundas attack with a pair of goals including a shorthanded one, while Justin Davis had a goal and two assists. Nick Smith and Scott Mifsud added single goals. Simon Mangos set up two of the Real McCoys goals.

Kyle Bailey scored both of the Bentley goals, one on a shorthanded play.

_RLW9758

In the earlier game, Martin Lapointe became the hero rather than the goat for Clarenville as he returned from a high sticking penalty to score the insurance goal in the Caribous’ victory over Kenora.

Lapointe was sent off at 10:35 of the third period, and Kenora turned up the heat on Clarenville, only to turn over the puck on the Clarenville blueline to Doug O’Brien. O’Brien in turn flipped the puck over a Kenora defender as Lapointe raced from the penalty box for open ice and the loose puck, which he corralled and fired past Tyler Gordon in the Kenora goal.

The counter gave the Caribous a 4-2 lead and deflated the Thistles. Luke Gallant scored into an empty net on an unassisted play to complete the Caribous scoring with 24 seconds left.

Rodi Short, Cam Fergus, and Gallant collected a goal and an assist each with Ryan Desrosiers and Lapointe adding single goals. Peter Campbell set up two of the Clarenville scoring plays.

Ryan Pearson and former Dundas Real McCoys forward TJ Sakaluk accounted for the Kenora scoring. [symple_divider style="solid" margin_top="20px" margin_bottom="20px"]

Dundas Blues Bobbleheads

Sometimes in the middle of the night you get up with a great idea. Not sure how to implement it, but a concept you want to experiment and have fun with. Well I just did that! The Nikon Fisheye 10.5mm 1:2.8 lens has given me some extraordinary results this year. I wanted to do a composite where the kids could give me some really silly expressions. The DMHA Dundas Blues team was just up for that challenge. Even the coaches got in on the action...Although I had to hunt a few down [TeeHeeHee], they were great sports. Movember is a very good time to get that real grunge look too. I really didn't know how I was going to pull it together. The shoot was really fast...like an assembly line. I used my favorite Westcott Ice Light, reflector and remote flash. The images were all extracted on the Wacom Cintiq tablet and various filters were used in photoshop to finish the The Dundas Blues Bobblehead Composite.  

Thomas

I still enjoy the traditional team photo...I just like to add a little more character to make it different. Thanks Al & Jeff!

Dundas Major Atom Blues

"Zamboni" The Coldwater Community Centre in Orillia was beaming with character! 

Lonely Zamboni

Something you don't know! When my little guy first started playing hockey he wouldn't get out of bed, he would sit on the ice, he would not listen and misbehave. Yes we still got up at 5am for the 6'O'clock practices. We stuck with it and it was our son's decision to try out for rep. We were skeptical and he was not ready. He didn't make the team that year, but had an AMAZING season playing select hockey. The next year came and he wanted to try out again. More prepared and focused-YAY he made the team. He never gave up and loves to play hockey. In his first year playing I took some snaps of him on the ice. I didn't know the people helping him would be his coaches today! Back then you were just a guy on the ice. Your photo hung in my son's room for years. Proud to call you coach today. Thanks Denis!

Bulldogs Shutout Comets in Dundas

Source: Bulldogs Communication | Hamilton Scores | October 3rd, 2013 | J.L. Grightmire Arena

Hamilton Bulldogs rookie forward Sven Andrighetto scored the only goal of the game at 3:57 of the second period to lift the ‘Dogs to a 1-0 pre-season win over new division rivals, the Utica Comets, Thursday (Oct 3) evening at J.L. Grightmire Market Street Arena in Dundas, Ontario.

Andreghetti

Things opened slowly in the first period. The excitement of the opening frame was a fight between Hamilton forward Jordan Owens and Utica forward David Pacan. Owens dropped Comets forward Alex Friesen with a big hit at the Utica blueline before Pacan stepped in looking to settle the score. After one, the two teams were scoreless.

Fight Owens

Andrighetto scored the only goal of the night nearly four minutes into the second period when he ripped a feed from defenceman Nathan Beaulieu off the post and in.

Rookie Goal

Utica pressed hard to tie in the third period, but Hamilton goaltender Dustin Tokarski, who replaced starter Robert Mayer midway through the second, held the fort for the Bulldogs.

Mayer and Tokarski combined to make 28 saves for the shutout. Joacim Eriksson played the entire game for Utica, making 19 saves on 20 shots.

Hamilton Bulldogs Goalie

Hamilton went 0-for-4 on the power play. Utica went 0-for-2.

Scoring Summary

1st Period: No scoring

2nd Period: HAM – Sven Andrighetto – (Nathan Beaulieu) – 3:57

Great times in Dundas last night! A Big Thank You to the Hamilton Bulldogs organization for assisting the DMHA in their fundraising efforts. Congratulations Bulldogs on your 1-0 win over The Utica Comets.

Soccer Flare

It was an amazing year for these u10B DYSC talented soccer players. I always get excited to see the peoples expression when they get their composites or prints.  I wanted to try a new concept with full sun and natural lens flare. The shoot was outside on the pitch starting at 5pm...probably on the hottest day of the year! The sun started out pretty strong where it was filtered with a large black muslin over the soccer net. I used Nikon remote small flash with two 7' Westcott Parabolic Umbrellas. A reflector and Westcott Ice Light was used on occasion. The boys were encouraged to do whatever they wanted.  I did my best to capture it.  Soccer-Flare_650

As the sun moved and changed intensity we also moved to one available soft light coming from above. Photoshop, Lightroom, Nik Software and the Wacom Cintiq was used for extraction and design. So much character came from the headshots. I love working with the kids. Some need a little more time to get there, but when they do....WoW! I don't like to rush it and in the end it is so much worth it. I gotta say thankyou to all the coaches, manager, parent volunteers and families for being incredible people to work with. Although photography is my job, its means so much more when the experience is wonderfully memorable! Headshots_650 Now this is funny...Cassidy Ross drew this photo of me photographing (THANK YOU-THANK YOU-THANK YOU).  I must photograph like this a lot because my friend Scott Thomas just sent me a photograph doing the exact same thing. When shooting in The Valley of Fire, in Las Vegas my friend Mike Ingold sent me another similar photo. I am surrounded by talented people who inspire me to keep creating and I am forever grateful....THANK YOU!!!!!

The City of Waterfalls

It's hard not to go waterfall hopping when you live in the "City of Waterfalls". My friend Scott Thomas and Merrie joined me from NY and in one day we visited over 10 waterfalls. Some were spectacular and some were not so great! Midsummer is difficult because the water is not flowing as much and the scenery is overcrowded with onlookers. For a photographer ambiance is everything and it's nice to catch a sunset or sunrise too.

[caption id="attachment_6316" align="alignnone" width="650"]Scott Tiffany Tiffany Falls, Ancaster, ON[/caption]

We started out in the morning to view Webster's Falls, Tew's Falls, Pioneer Falls, Darnley's Cascade. By mid noon we photographed the spectacular Sherman Falls and Albion Falls. The day ended at Tiffany Falls in Ancaster. There was no water running down Felker's Falls, a few of the smaller falls or the Devil's Punchbowl Falls. Regardless the Hamilton City view was nice to see from the lookout. [More about Hamilton Waterfalls]

[caption id="attachment_6314" align="alignnone" width="650"]Sherman Falls Sherman Falls, Ancaster, ON[/caption]

Because there is no control of the elements on the day of an excursion, the best thing to do is make the best of it.  NO! NO! NO! don't photograph directly into the sun...you can't do that....the photo will not turn out. At the mercy of full sun, I just did that.  I have been in awe of lens flare and sunblown images since I started looking at photographs. I believe it evokes a sense of character and emotion to the image. A new series "soccer lens flare" will be posted soon.

[caption id="attachment_6319" align="alignnone" width="650"]Albion Sun Albion Falls, Hamilton, ON[/caption]

I am local to the area and very privileged to be able to photograph the Hamilton waterfalls anytime during any season. Unfortunately many visitors make the trip only to find caution tape or security guards limiting the access to our beautiful waterfalls. A letter by Tracey Carr of Greensville was published in the Dundas Star [Read Article].  It describes the frustrating conversation I had with my fellow photographers from New York. The photos in the marketing material show waterfalls from inaccessible areas. Kinda disappointing for a photographer trying to get a similar shot! _____________________________________________________________________________________ The lookout is the only vantage point to photograph Websters Falls. A wrought iron fence and security guard deter people from accessing the trail to the bottom.

I had a great day photographing with Scott and Merrie. Websters Falls has so many beautiful features besides waterfalls. I enjoy shooting backgrounds for my composites. I am currently working on one for the Westcott Shootout this year (soooooo excited to share it). The background image below lends itself to an interesting photo on it's own too [Fisheye 10.5mm at  f10 |1/200]

My favorite moment was when I called my friend Tara for directions and I complained about the falls being dried up...She replies, "Well if you're trying to find some falls with water, have you heard of Niagara Falls?" Autumn is just around the corner and things will be flowing. Looking forward to the next shoot! [Scott Thomas Blog]

Bring Back Play Canada!

As an active community member part of my photography mission is to assist development in sport and keep children active. I believe in building confidence, promoting amateur athletes to aspire and do great things. 

I couldn't be more proud to be a part of Canadian Tire's new "We All Play for Canada" national marketing campaign. In association with the Canadian Olympic Committee and a number of amateur sport organizations the project is to encourage play among Canadian youth. Read the full article in Marketing Magazine: NEW CANADIAN TIRE CAMPAIGN BIDS US TO GO PLAY | August 16, 2013 | Chris Powell

This message is so strong and endearing to me because as a child I was active and driven to be an elite athlete. I worked hard with a wonderful community behind me. They helped to assist with all the issues that deter kids from play. It was because of these people and the innate ambition I desired which helped me to achieve my goals.

Lifestyle changes and motherhood becomes my priority and I see a technological society hypnotize our children. I photograph action to inspire these children to continue to participate. These young athletes love the movement, expression and experiences captured. I laugh now because I only have a couple of photos from my play days. I really wish I had more to reflect on those amazing memories. I have taken hundreds of thousands of photos of amateur athletes and love to share them. I believe in my personal mission to boost excitement in sport and personal development through my photography. [Special Posts: What inspires me as a photographer | Vision to Reality ) 

I was excited to create a timeless piece when the families of the Dundas Jr. Real McCoys Select Hockey team asked me to do something for the coaches and players. [Post1 | Post2] We had the most magnificent season. Who knew some stuff in the back of my car and impromptu photoshoot in a hockey dressing room could get any better!

Hockey_Poster650

Amanda of Blake Talent is Login's agent. When she heard of the casting for real teams, she contacted me because I am a sport photographer. At the time we thought that the entire team would be casted for the commercial, so a blanket email went out to all interested. Although it was summer and some families were away and committed, we had a 100% response rate of support!

Then five boys from Dundas were selected to be in the "Drum Roll" please......"Canadian Tire" National commercial-Woohoooooooooo! There is no other brand more Canadian than "Canadian Tire"...oh and to represent hockey? WoW! See because LJ (Login) has been doing this for a while, he knows how much work is involved to book. He was on cloud nine to wear the Johnathan "Toews" jersey. LJ cheered the Blackhawks all the way to the Stanley Cup!

hockey-headshotso

Now going back to the photographs, I am in awe that the boys booked from their headshots. We are used to going through Toronto traffic for casting, callbacks and wardrobe etc. Mississauga was a stone throw away and the rain...really what rain? We were so happy to be there and the boys had the time of their life! LJ was thrilled to be with his teammates and doing something he loves with a hockey stick in his hand. 

The outreach to the grassroots level is profound. The involvement of genuine athletes playing the game is a real strong inspiring message. As a photographer I will continue to motivate and excite activity within our young athletes. I hope the “We All Play For Canada” campaign touches your heart and inspires your strength to bring back play! http://weallplayforcanada.ca/ #WeAllPlayForCanada #CanadianTire

U12G and U10B Soccer Photographs

Soccer Ice Cream

It was a smokin hot weekend at the Cobra Football Summer Classic in Rochester, NY.  Although I got a great tan, all I could see was this ice truck in the distance...FOCUS-FOCUS-FOCUS!  I got to shoot with my G+ photographer friend Scott Thomas at the first game of the tournament.  It was neat to see how he used his Radical Design Harness. I was supposed to shoot the Syracuse Crunch 7th game of the Calder Cup Series with Scott. I was so sad that it only went to game 6 and had to get my harness another day.  Meeting professional people online through G+ is amazing and I absolutely love the hangout feature. So stay tuned as I set up my harness to meet my specs and I post all about it's great features. Thank You Klaus for involving us in your prototype field test.

Dundas Valley Conservation Habitat Field Trip

Dundas Valley Conservation Area | Dundas-Ontario-Canada | June 4, 2013 

The Grade Four class of Greensville School visited the Dundas Valley Conservation Area for a breath of fresh air! The children learned about nature conservation, animal-plant habitats and communities. The day was full of fun eco games, hands on learning and exploratory hiking.

The Eco games were very stimulating which focused on demonstrating animal adaptations and food chains.

Children became predator and prey exploring producers, consumers, decomposers in the meadow and forest.
