New York on a Leica III

Here are a few images from a couple rolls of black and white film I put through my 1934 Leica III, with the classic collapsible Elmar 50mm – f/3.5 lens, during a three-day visit to New York City in March 2018. Ilford HP5 400 and Kodak Tri-X 400TX were the types of film used.

iPhone photos thanks to a new bicycle

I’ve started exploring Calgary’s pathways this summer, thanks to recently purchasing a new bicycle – my first in more than 20 years. Here are some photos taken and edited with my iPhone. Feels good to be back on a bike – it’s been too long.

FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada 2015

Here are some of my images from this summer’s 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup that was held in Canada. I was fortunate enough to attend most of the matches in Edmonton this past June and July.

I used my recently purchased Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 Sport lens mounted on a Nikon D7000 for the entire World Cup. The Sigma lens is a nice piece of equipment – solid and with a decent range of focal length that can hold f/2.8 all the way through.

Farewell to the Herald

Farewell to the Herald from Stuart Gradon on Vimeo. After 10 years, today is my final shift at the Calgary Herald. I’m leaving to take a full-time web design course. Not an easy decision, but the right one – with the future in mind. Working for the Herald has afforded me a front row seat […]
