A Taste of Some Projects I’m Working On in March…

Posted by ryanjackson on Mar 11, 2010 in Ryan's Life

I haven’t been updating as much lately because I’m working on a few projects and they won’t be published for a while.

Here is a taste of some photos I’ve taken lately though…

I spent an afternoon on the Boyle Street warm-up van but the story isn’t running for a while so here is just one photo. I’ll post more when the story runs.

I’ve spent the last week doing a story on the Edmonton Paralympic Sports Association. I’ve shot Paralympic Tae Kwon Doe, Soccer, Swimming, Floor Hockey and Sledge Hockey. The full photo story will run next weekend (I hope!). Here is a teaser from the series.

The Shrine Circus is coming and I’m doing a time lapse from the end of a hockey game until the end of opening night of the circus. That should run on Saturday or Sunday.  See you soon!
