Vancouver / Postmarked 11 Nov. 2012

11 November 2012 My dearest Sybithian: I cannot believe fate has made it so that our paths fail to cross in Vancouver.  By far, this is probably my favorite city on the North American continent.  My conference just ended, and I’m sitting in a small café overlooking the waterfront by Lonsdale Quay, lamenting the fact…

For the Love of Calgary

Let’s talk about Calgary for a few minutes! Calgary’s nickname is “Cowtown” because it has a history associated with the Canadian “Wild West” of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The city’s official flag is a red field featuring the letter “C” adorned with a cowboy hat positioned within the opening of the initial….

The Frustrated Photographer and Forgetful Pilot

I have an episode in aerial photography that was so peculiar that I felt it deserved to be described with readers. Prepare a cup of coffee, tea, cocoa – whatever your beverage of choice is today – sit back, and allow me to share this tale of semi-humorous human folly (and foolishness) with you. My…

Juneau, You Know?

According to my WordPress statistics, this will be my 50th article for this blog. To celebrate this achievement, I thought I would share some trivia about America’s 49th state, just to be quirky and offbeat. Alaska’s capital city is Juneau.

“Conversations with Skeletons”

TIA International Photography would like to take a moment to share a promo video from a very good friend, Canadian author Kirk DeMatas, regarding the upcoming published release of his 2nd compilation of profound poetry, “Conversations with Skeletons.”
TIA traveled on assignment to Toronto last September to conduct the photo shoot with Kirk and mutual friends. You will see a sample of some of that photography here. (These images are quite different from what you’re used to seeing, which makes Kirk’s project all that more intriguing)!

Kirk’s book will premiere this fall! Stayed tuned for more information!
