Ottawa Business Portrait of Architect Douglas Cardinal.

This business portrait was done for Ottawa Architect Douglas Cardinal…a brilliant unassuming man who designed, among other remarkable structures, The Museum of Civilization in Ottawa.

Definitely take a look at his work… http://www.djcarchitect.com/

When invited to address an Arch. school, Mr. Cardinal is known to step down from the dais and make a beeline to chat with sttudents for the rest of his visit.

I shot these for the Feds…Most Ottawans have never actually taken the time to go visit our magnificent Parliament Buildings.

Childhood goes by fast…blink and you missed it. I shot these of my daughter over a decade ago with my first “hi end” digital camera. Priceless!

I shot this editorial image of Dr Keon about a decade ago. I wanted to mix Karsh-like tones and digital imagery….

Ottawa Photographer Paul Couvrette Photographs Vintage Wings/ Michael Potter

I have known Michael for over 20 years and photographed him on various occasions, both for personal family images and for business. It was great to spend time at Vintage Wings shooting for a local magazine. The place was full of history and showed his love of flight and pilots.

I’ve directed a number of fellow flight enthusiasts to VWC since discovering it in 2011. For the first time I’ve been engaged by a museum over a very prolonged continuum of time – and that’s coming from an artist, an historian, an architect, who knows museums! Its conception was just brilliant; every project on the agenda generates more interest and enthusiasm at a fairly “gut” level, for its niche group of followers. Imagine what it means to a young person, that she could actually fly off in one of these beautiful machines…it’s fairy-tale like! Most importantly, VWC’s “living” museum of actual flight is what constitutes the brilliance of its design as a museum of flight: flying itself is the source of inspiration for the young whom we bring to fully engage history itself. The museum’s success is in this visceral involvement – layering over familial stories, reminiscences; the names, the planes themselves, childhood memories: Harvards, Hercules, 104′s, the Beaver, in and around thour northern lakes. Visitors to the Gatineau hangar think of Dad as a teenaged LAC technician back in the 30′s, “doping” the canvas-covered wings at Aldershot, or Trenton. Many of us think again of those 9am Beaver River High School classes on a 30-below RCAF Cold Lake morning – it always had to be “Silent Reading” period, owing to the deafening roar as multiple planes warmed up on the tarmac – then heading up, over the DEW Line; whump, the 104′s shrieking past the Primrose Rocket Range. That’s only one vignette of many – bloody brilliant that Michael Potter!

Yes…Elizabeth, Michael is truly a gift to Ottawa. His high flying career was but a stepping stone to the heights this facility reaches. If you are ever in Ottawa, we must go by together…

Elizabeth McLoughlin - April 6, 2013 - 3:48 AM

I saw that, thinking, more of your prepared mind turning Chance to Fate

Paul Couvrette - April 6, 2013 - 11:29 PM
