Time to re-activate

Ok, I know, this blog has been pretty stagnant over the past 12 months. A little thing called the PanAm Games and my role in making it the best PanAm’s for photographers kind of got in the way.

Well, I am officially no longer the Photo Chief for the Games, the Parapan’s finished a week ago and I am back, for the time being, to just a sports photographer. What does the future hold? I really have no idea. For the immediate future I am shooting Blue Jays (here’s hoping they make the playoffs and extend the season) Baseball and other sports for some major national and international clients and will be doing some other shooting work in the coming weeks. I am also currently working on a new range of workshops – more on that soon.

As for the Games – from the press perspective it was a great success. I had an amazing team of venue photo managers who worked ridiculously long hours, under sometimes trying circumstances, to provide the photographers with the best possible photographic opportunities – a task that they pulled off with spectacular success.

Coming soon to this blog:

  • Shooting with the Nikon 1 V3 – This spectacular little camera was my constant companion during the PanAm Games. See my review of it’s performance.
  • Review of the new Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f/2.8E FL ED VR for the start of the NHL (Ice Hockey for non North Americans) season
  • Details of a new range of workshops to start in fall 2015

Please also check out the main web site at http://peterllewellyn.com where many new images will be filed over the next week.

As you might gather from the above it is my intention to stay in Toronto, at least for a while. There are a number of things I am working on that might dictate where and what I will be doing next, all will be revealed in due course.
