Welcome to Eye for Detail!
Here you can find out more about us and look at some of our favourite photos. Almost all the photos you see were taken by me, Trent Ernst. Some were taken by my talented second shooter, Darin Clisby, and a few were taken by my wife, Colette. If the photos were taken by someone else other than me, I will tell you.
Feel free to look around and make comments. We appreciate your feedback.

As you may or may not know, I’ve been working on a series called Dance Wild, featuring dancers in the wilderness (you can see previous examples here and here and here).
That was the plan here, too, but Jamie was taking off for school in Edmonton and working and there just wasn’t time to get out and into, you know, the Wilderness.
My next idea was to do a shoot at the fall fair after dark, because you know, awesome. However, the band and I were practicing for the Sam Roberts show that night, so I had to leave before it got dark.
But I really wanted to do a shoot with her before she left, so while the rest of the family was exploring the fall fair, Jamie and I spent a good … half an hour wandering about taking photos. She was awesome, but the fair itself was, well, it was the midway during the day, when you can see all the dirt and dings and cables, and not the magic place it becomes after dark. Jamie was wonderful, though, and I’m really hoping she comes back home next summer so we can actually do a Dance Wild shoot.
We were going to put a link here to the TRSS school photos, but thought that some parents would not like the link to be in the wild, so instead, we are asking parents that want access to the photos digitally to email us, and we’ll send you a link.
Here’s the final post for Dakota and Nathan: Their wedding album. There’s a whole bunch of shots in here that haven’t been seen before.
To view the album, click on the album cover, and it will load in a flash viewer. If you are trying to view on a cell phone/iPad or just have moral objections to Flash, you can view the HTML version here.
Blue: The colour blue tends to imply cool, though I’d say it was closer to cold tonight when I asked Ashlee to stand under a spray of water outside, straight from the hose. I think I’m obligated to run this pictures, even though we shot some with an umbrella, because, well, she stood under a freezing cold spray of water for me. And because, come on, she’s freaking gorgeous in this shot.
Wedded to the game: This one needs a bit of set-up. Naomi and Matthew have been married for ten years. They wanted to recreate some of their wedding pictures. But they also wanted to shoot at the golf course.
And I thought, what about recreating the wedding pictures, but golfing? So instead of a bouquet, Naomi would hold clubs. This idea is about to turn into a series….
This one is right out of their album.
There’s a new park out at Gwillim Lake, and a new device that’s like a merry-go-round, but is much smaller and has ropes to climb on. Anyway, like a Merry-go-round, if you sit in the middle, you spin less fast then at the outer edge. So we loaded up the device with kids, put Eve in the middle, and started spinning. All the shots turned out so different. I’m not sure this is my fav, but I love the expression on her (barely visible) face.
I was hoping to take a picture of Kris Swanson out running. After all, that’s his element. But today got away from me and by the time I was free, it was well after dark. So we came into the studio. He kept saying his beard made him look evil, so my mind went to a photo by Arnold Newman of Alfried Krupp, where he underlit the image to create a more ominous portrait. So, that’s what we did here. I love the way the light catches the lines of his cheek, and I can’t help but think he looks a bit like an image of James Franco I’ve seen somewhere but can’t find anymore. Or maybe I just imagined it.
