>Parkade Drop

>

The other day I got a phone call… It went something like this…

Aaron – “Hey Brent its Aaron. What are you doing tomorrow night?”
Me – ” Not much, got a couple errands to do. Why whats up?”
Aaron – “I found a Parkade with the perfect pile of snow to use for a tranny and a good progression of stories to jump off. I got a video camera for Christmas and want to video it.”
Brent – “I got some new flashes I gotta try out, where and when?”
So I decide to not miss the opportunity in front of me and met with him the following night.

Turns out when we show up at the spot there happens to be one lonely car in the parkade and some guys skateboarding. Ends up its not their car and its right smack in the landing zone of our planned bomb drop. We hum and haw over if there is enough room to make it still happen, and end up deciding its not doable with a car in the way.

Not to end up with a wasted evening I go on a journey walk around the parkade and ‘VOILA’ another real good spot to make this happen. Only thing is there is no real progression to be had to get a little comfortable with the transition, its straight off the top. It may be a little hard to tell but its about 18 – 20 feet high, and thats just to the top of the snowpile. We start shaping the tranny and then I set up my lights. Aaron like a champion does most all of the work to get the drop in ready, even though hes the one risking it all and actually doing the drop. Once all is ready Aaron builds up his courage and gives is a go, If you can see in the picture below he is already wincing waiting for the impact.

Although Aaron doesn’t land it that time he mans up, reshapes the landing a bit and heads back up the stairs to go at it again. Round two my flashes dont fire so no usable pics from that. Had to send back my Cactus V4 receiver for warranty.

Not to be defeated by the parkade Aaron heard up for another go at it. Flashes work thanks to my VAL ( That’s a Voice Activate Light Stand, Thanks Jennie ) and the slave mode on the flashes.
Again you can see the look on his face as he knows if he doesn’t land it, it causes some pain.

Aaron’s a trooper and probably tried this drop at least 8 times, although no attempts were successful it was still a good night of “learning”. I can’t wait untill it snows again so we can try again on the other side, as long as that car isn’t there.

Cheers!

>Its been a long journey getting here and is still a long journey that only begins now!

Jenn had made it through 41 weeks of pregnancy like a trooper, but was really feeling like she was over it..

It was December 1st at 3:00pm when I got the “you should come home now!” text. I hurried home and then we took our time getting ready. When we finally got to the hospital it was 5:56 pm. We had some trouble checking in so Jenn had to wait alone in a bed with no nurses checking on her while I got the mountains of paperwork done. When I finally got back she was already in transition, so when I finally got the nurse to check her she was already a good 6cm dilated and well on her way to 10cm… We got our delivery room in a flash and Jenn was begging for something to ease the pain. As the nurse was getting the I.V. set up Jenns water broke and a delivery nurse came flying in. In as many as 3 or 4 pushes we had a new baby boy! I cut the cord and it was an official birth at 6:56 pm. We were in the delivery room maybe 10 minutes before he was actually born. All without anything for the pain…

I am SO incredibly proud, thankful, and appreciative to Jenn for giving me yet another one of the most fantastic gifts anyone could give.

So without further ado… I present: Cameron Jake Davidson weighing in at whopping 9lbs 3oz!

Enjoy!

A quick Tim Horton’s

>Here are some from my personal collection. These are of my wife, Jenn. She was due on the 24th, so now is actually overdue. We have been getting so frustrated anxious waiting for our little guy to come, we can’t wait to meet him.

Had a great time shooting these with her over the past few days. Jenn is so beautiful it almost feels like cheating its so easy to photograph her.


Enjoy!
