Ah yes, the follies of youth they say.  Some things follow us our entire lives, and in some cases we aren’t quite sure even why.  We now continue our running photoblog series called the “Motor Gathering“, and in today’s post we check out a model of car that has been in my mind and imagination […]

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 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 […]

As a photographer, every once in a while you see something that catches your eye.  You hope to return later with time permitting to shoot it, and sometimes Father Time is helpful in this regard, and other times when you return the item or subject is gone.  This is particularly true when it comes to […]

It’s really hard to believe that July is here already!  With summer just around the corner in Canada, it’s time to start planning for visits to our local car shows.  The weather is getting nice on Vancouver Island, and with it comes a bevy of sightings of classic and custom cars, trucks and motorcycles.  In […]

Imagine waking up in a beautiful character home, surrounded by the chirps of the local birds as the fresh Cowichan Valley air gently stirs in your room.  You awaken and head downstairs to where a lovely breakfast awaits you as the day begins.  All your plans for the day are yours for experiencing, as well […]

A garage door slowly opens as the first birds of spring sing in the trees and the buds begin to burst with the signs of good weather.  The silence is abruptly broken by the sound of a small block V8 firing to life.  The birds scatter and everyone in earshot strains to see where the […]

As a photographer, I am finding myself out and about much more frequently in the early mornings taking advantage of the ethereal mood and natural light that is expressed this time of day.  Each morning and evening just before the sun appears or disappears a type of light that is perfect for photography arrives, often […]

In a world where shiny and new is predominant in our culture I always find personal joy in exploring things that are far from that.  Car shows are quite typically full of highly polished examples of hot rods and restorations, yet a new trend has been emerging the past few years that I really enjoy…  […]

Wisps of fog linger in the air, creating a natural light diffuser that takes much of the color out of the landscape and leaves behind an eerie and ethereal feel.  Figures come and go in the mist, playing tricks with your eyes, leaving you wondering if you really saw that shadow move or if it’s […]
