Kind of a funny shot at first glance with skis and a ramp in late June, but this pic of Hilden’s Emma Stevens is one I liked thanks to a slight tilt of the camera and how the ramp in her backyard kind of flows down to highlight her.

This pic is made by the angle I was able to catch it at. Everything seems to line up from the heads of the defenders to ball carrier Phillip Ballard and his teammate in the background at CC Riders Under-10 competitive practice in July. The expression on Ballard’s face and his motion toward the ball made it even better.

I like how the angle of this shot makes a big John Deere tractor look even bigger as its driver jumps down to meet up with his prom date at South Colchester Academy.

I always wanted to get one of those awesome ramp shots you see in BMX and skateboarding mags and Nathan Blois of Onslow Mountain was more than willing to help me out with some big air on an April afternoon at the Truro skate park.

I liked this shots because it shows what off road racing is all about; your foot to the floor while sliding through a corner, slinging mud everywhere.

This is a shot of Pat Carroll I took before his pro mixed martial arts debut in April. We did the shoot in a small room he uses to train in only a few feet wide. It gave off this sort of dungeon atmosphere where only someone who means business would train. It was the perfect motivation to take this dark, intimidating shot.

All the angles in this pic of Kaitlyn Barr getting out of a Pontiac Chieftan at the South Colchester Academy prom is what catches your eye here. The paneling on the door and lines on the quarter panel all lead to a girl who looks like a movie star arriving at a red carpet event.

I love this shot of Brookfield’s Tyler Medaglia coming right into your living room. The angle it’s shot at, the bike leaning over, dirt flying and eyes through the goggles makes this one great to look at and probably my favourite shot of the year.

This is a simple shot but I thought it was a good one because it emphasized what sports is really all about. This was taken on the first night of mini soccer at the Timbits Soccer Complex and already Spencer Carlisle, left, and Antoine Carrington were the best of buds.

Valley/Kemptown volunteer firefighters were working hard to put out a blaze that burned a few acres of land in Manganese Mines.

East Mountain's Steve Henderson sure knows his way around a race car. The crew chief for the Dexter Construction team on the Maritime Pro Stock Tour helped Enfield's Shawn Turple to a series title in 2012. This was a great shot of Steve doing what he does best.

I snapped this one of Daniel Vanderpoel in September at a Cobequid Cougars boys soccer practice. He was getting great height and really rising up to meet the ball with his forehead making this a nice shot.

Another simple but very effective shot of a note to veterans left at the Debert Cenotaph on Remembrance Day by a little girl named Sophie.

This shot of Truro Bearcats defenceman Ryan Moore breaking out of his own end is one of my favourite hockey pics I've taken. I like the angle and the fact he is emphasized in the shot by being about a stride ahead of the two Amherst Ramblers players.

This was a shot I really liked from a story I did about Harmony's Ryan Smith heading to Edmonton for the national car painting championships. He ended up finishing second.
