Did you say busy?

Pretty quiet here, eh? For the whole week, I’m working pretty much 12 hours per day as the official event photographer for the ITF World Championship of Taekwon-do here in Quebec City. I’ll have a lot of photo to show you.

The event is pretty cool, with a huge setup. It’s really beig! If you happen to live in the area, you should come have a look.

Gilles Vachon

Gilles VachonCindy and I went to see my parent at their cottage. As the evening went by, the golden light started to hit my father through the window. Of course, I could not resist shooting a couple of frames. A little bit of postproduction to convert it to black and white gave my what will be a beautiful memory of him someday.
