The Mayors Of Muskoka

Mar 27 2012

At a resort symposium meeting in Port Carling I had the chance to take portraits of all 5 of Muskoka's Mayors. I only had about 5 minutes at the end of the meeting to gather them together, so the photos were done pretty quickly but it was a unique chance to shoot all of them at once.

From Left is: Claude Doughty, mayor of Huntsville. Paisley Donaldson, mayor of Gravenhurst. Bob Young, mayor Lake of Bays Township. Alice Murphy, mayor of Muskoka Lakes. Graydon Smith, mayor of Bracebridge.

No Lions, No Tigers, Just Bears, Oh My

Mar 20 2012

Joan Money has an extensive collection of Teddy Bears, documenting the history of the bears. She also mends old or damaged bears, and makes custom Teddy Bears just the cost of materials. This was a really great assignment her collection is amazing, including the tiniest bear she ever made, which is the one in her hand. With all the bears around I couldn't resist making another couch portrait.
