I covered my first Grey Cup for Canadian Press Images using three cameras. I shot Canon and used a 300mm, a 70-200 and a 24-70 lens to capture the action. It was an amazing experience to be part of. It was non stop. It’s in Winnipeg next year, so we’ll see… Cover photo by Geoff Howe.

I haven’t followed WWE since junior high. I’m old school and when I did follow the then WWF it was wrestlers/entertainers like Jake the Snake Roberts, The Iron Sheik and Junk Yard Dog who put on the show. If you’re really hardcore you’ll remember Stampede Wrestling in its glory days. Anyways, that’s another story. So this really isn’t a photo story but instead, a photo spread I did for a newspaper from one evening of shots that I like to think the WWE is all about.

It’s been 16 hours since my last meal and my feet are cold. It’s February, the air is crisp and I smell like I’ve been camping. I slept for maybe 20 minutes last night in a wooded area along the Red Deer River. My bed is made of forest and tarp wrapped around four spruce trees. In a two metre by two metre space a fire pit rests and around the pit lays Irish, Frodo and Horace, three homeless men I chose to spend 24 hours with.
