The story of The Three Little Pigs saw the Big Bad Wolf huffing and puffing, trying desperately to blow the little piggies house down.  I am pretty sure if he had a huffer like the one we see sitting atop the fire-breathing V8 in this classic Chevrolet Supercharged Nova, he would have been able to […]

We’ve all heard about the Seven Wonders of the World, a list of places and things that are true marvels in every sense of the word.  Sometimes a wonder can actually be right in your own backyard, no matter if it lives on a list somewhere or not.  We have one such wonder of our […]

We’d like to introduce you to the newest member of the Toad Hollow Photography team today, “Bruce”.  Who’s Bruce, you may very well ask?  Bruce is a DJI Phantom 3 Professional drone we recently acquired, giving us the ability to capture shots from a fresh, new perspective!  None of this would be possible without a […]

It would seem that the good folks over at Topaz Labs never seem to sleep.  They are constantly enhancing and updating their current set of tools, and in all cases these advancements produce incredible results that make it easy for us photographers to create great images, easily.  In today’s fast paced world, we find it […]

It was the car show to end all car shows, the car show of a lifetime.  It was much more than we expected, and we expected an awful lot.  This year’s show was hosted at the brand new, state of the art facility, the Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit, a world class track with world class […]
