6 months renting and loving every minute of it

Today, it's exactly 6 months since El Cheapo Movers loaded the truck and moved me from my house of 20 years to a rental apartment 42 stories up in the Tower of Power. I don't regret having made the move. If another expensive repair had come along, I think I...

Life above the clouds – Day 1

Well, I'm glad moving day is over. I'm surrounded by boxes and quickly generating a list of amenities that I forgot to consider, such as cutlery trays that fit the drawers here, toilet paper, and food. Bob is sticking close to me, I can't find my reading glasses, so...

The Purge Continues – Virtually

I've just completed the deletion of a large number of image galleries dating up to about 2013. I was using Slideshow Pro to run those galleries. As the product is no longer supported, and was eating up about 8 gigs of web space here, it was time for it to go. I...

Nothing to make light of – photographing performers in unpredictable lighting

Another year's Toronto Burlesque Festival has come and gone, and this was a terrific one. I've completed my first cull of the more than 7600 photos I made over 5 shows this time out. I'm currently down to about 250 per show that need a second look. I can generally...

The road out of Flux and why it it won’t be to a Tiny House

As I sit here waiting for the next in an almost-ended series of people visiting my house, I've been feeling already-displaced and at loose ends. While I anticipate being here for a 60-day closing period, the house already looks like it doesn't belong to me. I've...

The latest from the State of Flux

After over four months of work/packing things here at Casa Chris are now getting down to the short strokes. I've finished most of the painting/repair work, and am now down to smaller touchups, cleanup and staging, inside and out. I'm hoping to get this place on the...

In the NIK of time – Canadian Opera Company’s Carmen

The Canadian Opera Company's 2016 production of Carmen opens tomorrow night, and as usual, I was there to photograph a dress rehearsal this past Saturday night. This is a lovely production, aurally and visually. You definitely need to see it. From a photographer's...

The road out of Flux

It's been a while since my last post - partly because I now post pro photo-related content to my site at chrishutcheson.com, and also because I really haven't had much to say. That's partly because I'm preoccupied with (finally) getting my house ready to sell,...

My favourite small stage photos from 2015

Another year has come and gone, and with it a lot more photos. I've had a lot of fun, and have been lucky to photograph a lot of terrific performers. Looking back it seems like these images come from a more diverse range of events than in previous years, and I like...

What to do when the work stops being fun…

"Maybe you have artist’s block. Maybe you’re burned out. Or maybe you’re just sick of dealing with the grind. But whatever it is, your energy and will to go on are depleted, and the joy you first felt has been completely sucked out. No matter how much we enjoy our...
