I’m Shane. I’m a country boy who found himself growing up surrounded by horses and dogs. I knew long, cold winter walks to the end of my driveway to catch the bus to school, and I knew how to spend lazy afternoons on the lawn watching the leaves blow through the wind. We didn’t have cable TV.
I am a portrait and documentary photographer who now calls Ottawa home. I have a beautiful wife, and two energetic young boys who help keep life in perspective.
My photography style can be described as elegance with an edge. I use the interplay between light and shadow to create drama and boldness in my images, and I seek out interesting ways to tell the stories of the people and places I photograph. My goal is to always bring out the best in my clients, a side they may not have known they had.
That’s me in a nutshell. As you read this I’m probably being pulled outside to shoot hoops with my boys, or slaving over a gourmet meal for the family.
Thank you so much for stopping by, and if you’d like to chat about portraits, weddings, events or just want to ask a question, feel free to drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Where the blog name came from…
I adopted the title from my old high school biology teacher, Mr. Marshall, who would call our local small town newspaper “The Weekly Minute“. He would joke that it took the paper a week to produce, and a minute to read, and since I think that a blog post should be readable in just a couple minutes I felt the title was appropriate.
