August 2020 – Newsletter 1

Chris Wright Newsletters

August has been a busy month and a time of change as I work towards a professional photography practice. I hope everyone has been able to enjoy the nice weather and are keeping safe in the midst of the pandemic.

First off, I wanted to welcome you to the new home of C.K Wright Photography. This revamped web site provides a solid foundation to support my photography business. Along with that change comes my first monthly newsletter, I’d be interested in hearing your thoughts on it. I have added an index (blue hyperlink text below) to allow easy navigation.

Beyond the business side, I have been busy photographing in Metro Vancouver exploring new and old sites. Read on for images from this month!

Langley Memorial Hospital Foundation Charity Golf Tournament

One of the team shots at the first hole tee off

In mid-August I photographed the Langley Memorial Hospital Foundation golf charity tournament. This was my first time photographing for them so I felt very honored to be entrusted with documenting their event. The weather was perfect, sun with clouds and thankfully not boiling hot! I certainly enjoyed the work which included 33 team photographs, golf in action, sponsors, prizes, and of course the various food stations. All it all, it was a successful day!

Urban and Architectural

SFU Burnaby Campus

New places and old favorites provided many hours of creative urbanscape photography. I always find much joy in capturing buildings and structures, emphasizing the mass and playing with the scale.

Boundary Bay Landscapes

Low tide at Mud Bay

With the clouds lingering on the mountains, a friend and I headed over to walk the Boundary Bay dykes and enjoy the glorious sun. We walked from the Kings Link Golf Course to the Boundary Bay Regional Park. The views over the bay were impressive as were the flowers.

High School Graduation Portraits

Graduation Portrait

Graduating from high school is certainly an accomplishment, though this year with the pandemic related issues, it is very much an exercise in ‘plan b’ and patience! I was really pleased to be asked to photograph a local student’s delayed graduation portrait along with her boyfriend. They were both such nice people with ready smiles and just bursting with the future possibilities that await them.

Abstract and Expressionism

Passion Squares

I continue looking for creative possibilities through the abstract and expressionism arrangements. As I head out for play time with the camera, I am always amazed at the power of these creative compositions. This month I have been working on creating images with colour, texture, and a free form sense of arrangement.
