Now that I have graduated from my 2 year program of photo and video, its time to take things more seriously. Step one for me was creating a website and getting it up and running. I had heard of Wix from a couple of friends, and even through my school, so I gave it a look. Although Wix does offer 100’s of templates for you to choose from, I wanted a site that had a little of my own creative touch, so I went ahead and created my own template in photoshop. From there I transferred over the specific parts of the site over to Wix and now I present to you, Michael Schreuders Media. I’ll be purchasing the domain quite soon, so I get more support and rid of the Wix ads.
Well its been a while since i’ve posted, but there is a good reason for that. School is winding down and i’ve been trying to put all my efforts toward that. On the bright side though I have been putting together a Demo Reel of all my favourite shots and here it is! Enjoys! :)
This weekend was Brimfest at Brimacombe, Home of the Oshawa Ski Club. With Brimfest comes the Crack the Vault slope style contest, bringing out the best skiers and boarders on the hill. With the park crew working at 110%, conditions were premium for this event. From kickers to tubes, the riders had the freedom to link up spins and slides on their runs. Here are just a couple of pictures from this event.
A while back in the fall, I had 2 friends who were looking to do something for their 1 year anniversary. Not having much experience in the field of couple photography, I thought it would be a great opportunity to gain some knowledge. I learn best from just going out and trying something and then looking back at the results, and this is one experience that was very beneficial. I definitely want to try my hand at some couple or lifestyle photography again.
My trip to South Africa was really an eye opening experience to the different culture, landscapes and animals that are out in the world, It’s a trip i’d be willing to do again. Here are just a few of the pictures and moments I captured while on this trip.
When’s our next flight?
Typical birds nest
A statue in the great leaders honour
A town that can be seen from the highway
I never got tired of the roads and the scenery
If it’s a Kudu, then it’s a Kudu
The creepy crawlies of Africa
Our house for a couple days
Did someone call the Braai master?
I think so….
Our residential Zebra
Why did the elephant cross the road?
I think the leopard is saving that for later
My Favourite Animal
Just showing a little love
Who are you looking at?
As slow as they get
Are you going to eat the rest of that Banana?
Just one of the many beautiful scenes
Security is tight within the cities
A wild Michael was spotted
Should I be scared?
I hope they didn’t see me
An African Christmas (No Animals were injured in the Process)
I got this!
Looks like he didn’t win his last fight
After being in South Africa for a week so far, I can finally sit down and do a bit of writing. It’s been an eventful week and really opened my eyes to this beautiful country. Driving down roads with mountains boarding both sides leaves me speechless, as the vegetation is plentiful and only adds to the beauty this country offers. First day here we spent no time recovering from the jet lag but got out and about right away. We were staying in Pretoria for the night, and knew that the recently erected Mandela statue was nearby, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to pay our respect to this great leader. The next couple days were driving days, but driving in Africa is never boring with endless vista’s out both windows. We spend 2 nights in Marloth park, a park that borders Kruger park, one of the largest nature reserves in South Africa that hosts “THE BIG FIVE”,The big five refers to Lion, Leopards, Elephants, Rhinos and Buffalo. You could look out your bedroom window at this park and see Zebra’s, Kudos, Impala or even Warthogs just grazing in your backyard. Following these 2 days here, we made a trip through Kruger park, driving for almost 10.5 hours in Kruger park we definitely saw more than the average visiter. Ranging from seeing 3 of the big 5, Elephant Rhino and Buffalo as well as many other animals. After the long drive through Kruger we stayed at a house nearby and then made the drive out to my Uncle’s nature reserve which has Zebra, Giraffe and many other animals. Internet is limited so I’ll post just a couple of pictures of my trip :) Enjoy
Nelson Mandela’s Statue
Monkey and it’s baby
Logging road and amazing view
Well its that time of year again! Some people dread, and yet some people countdown the days till that predicted first snowfall. I’m one for counting down, as all I can picture is hitting the slopes with my snowboard and camera. It’s been a while since i’ve posted anything but there is a good reason for that. I’ve been caught up in school, focusing on putting my best effort into all assignments that I am given, I mean, it is my last year. Hopefully these pictures can hold my viewers over, because in a couple of weeks i’ll be heading to Africa, The photography trip of a lifetime!
