About

From January 1st 2011 until December 31st 2011 I will be taking a photo at precisely 16:25 every day and posting it here for the world to see.

The goal? To push my creativity by presenting myself with a daily challenge. To see my surroundings differently. To document an arbitrary slice of my life every day for a year and see what it says at the end of it all.

And for fun. Definitely for fun.

ME

I’m a freelance videographer, photographer and film/theatre tech – among other things. I specialize in event photo/videography, promotional photo/videography and also enjoy instructional/informational videos. For fun I document counter cultural activities, urban decay, architecture and whatever catches my eye. I also like to tinker with making lamps and other miscellaneous functional art.

I split my time between Montreal, Quebec, Canada and San Francisco, California, U.S.A. I also travel frequently all over North America and sometimes overseas thanks to a severance package from the airline I used to work for. Exploring new places is a passion of mine so it works out quite nicely.

GEAR

For those of you who are real gear heads I’m currently using a Canon T2i to capture my images. Lenses include;

  • Canon 28-105mm f3.5-4.5
  • Canon 10-22mm f3.5
  • Canon 50mm f1.8 (RIP)

  1. This is an interesting take on the 365 project – you really have to look to find a good shot at the precise time. Do you ever take a really fantastic photo at a different time and wish you could’ve used that?

    I’m on a bit of a search for other photo-a-day blogs, perhaps hoping to connect them all together in some way. Do you think you might be interested?

    • I certainly take a lot of great photos at other times, but this blog/project is really all about appreciating where I am and what I’m doing at the moment so it doesn’t bother me. Those other photos give me plenty of pleasure too, but they’re not for this site. I can say though that I’ve developed a pretty accurate internal clock as the result of all this and start sniffing around for an interesting shot around 16:00-16:15.

      Connecting blogs? Like a link ring, cross-posting/promoting, etc? Definitely. Sorry for the late response. Life’s been a roller-coaster lately. 😉

  2. Have you ever seen “Smoke” with Harvey Keitel and William Hurt? In it, the protagonist takes a photograph of the same subject at exactly the same time each day over a number of decades. Your 16:25 project reminded me of it.

    Do you always spontaneously choose a subject for your shot during that 16:10-16:15 period, or do you occasionally have a concept in mind? If it’s the former, it doesn’t leave a lot of time for preparation prior to pressing the shutter release.

  3. Great idea. I had a look through the archives and appreciated the photos. It made me want to see your other work and you have a link on this page to your other websites. Maybe you’re already aware and please forgive me if you are, but the link doesn’t work. I still found it of course with the address.

    • D’oh! Thanks. I’ll get on to fixing that. That website badly needs an update anyway. 🙂
