THE MILITARY ACCREDITATION by Blog Master

(Images and story by Chris TT Thombs). As it is Remembrance Day a lot of people start thinking about the military, and November 11th. I thought I would share some info, and thoughts about No. 44 - Military Life accreditation, “The Military Accreditation”. Why would I write a blog about this accreditation, and why does this accreditation matter to the regular members of PPOC? In my opinion military life is part of the Canadian story that needs to be documented. It also gives you a chance to educate yourself as a photographer by working towards getting the accreditation which will test you both as a photographer and as a project manager.

FOR THE LOVE OF MONSTERS by Blog Master


"Images and Story by Jeff McDonald". Halloween has always been a favourite time of year for me. I get it honestly though…my mom always went above and beyond when decorating for Halloween and our house was usually the spookiest on the block. Fast forward 30'ish years and my wife, daughter and I are carrying on the tradition, but via special effects makeup, body painting and photography.

WHY YOU SHOULDN'T SHOOT ON TRAIN TRACKS by Blog Master


In Canada, railways are private properties and walking on or along the train tracks is an act of trespassing. When we say along, we mean 50 feet from either side of the tracks. It is a federal offence under the Railway Safety Act and, although fines vary by provinces, they can reach up to $10,000. In short, it is illegal to use train tracks, active or inactive, as a shooting location without explicit permission from the railway company.
