Clearance Street Bridge

I recently was travelling down West. St when I happened to notice all the heavy clouds behind the Clearance Street Bridge.  It was a pretty unique situation because while there was a pretty heavy cloud cover in the North, the West was filled with sunshine.

Hope everyone out there has been enjoying the great summer so far!

2015 Canal Days

This coming weekend is the Canals Days weekend in Port Colborne.  It should be filled with fun and events that is sure to be a hit for all attendee’s.

Saturday includes Big Wreck playing the down town stage, and included are a few snaps of them playing at a previous concert I had the chance of attending.   Ian Thornley sure goes out of his way to ensure a great concert experience for the audience.

Hope to see you out over the weekend.



Props to Cops

Props to Cops Banner

With police and law enforcement coming under increasing fire for a handful of highly publicized cases of police brutality, WDCX Radio and the Crawford Broadcasting Company prepare to launch ‘Props to Cops!’


WDCX General Manager Brett Larson announces ‘Props to Cops’ a month-long campaign –beginning July 1st- designed to thank the men and women who risk so much to make our lives safer. “Law enforcement represents the thin blue line that exists between us and chaos,” Larson says. “Everyone is against police brutality, but we are proud to say we are 100% FOR law enforcement!”

110,000 watt super-station 99.5 FM WDCX (reaching Buffalo NY, Erie PA, and Toronto ON), WDCD-AM 970 (Buffalo NY/Toronto ON) and WDCX-AM 990 (Rochester NY) is joining hands with local businesses to celebrate law enforcement during the month of July.

Larson says the stations are teaming up with local businesses that agree to offer goods and services to police officers and other members of law enforcement during the month of July. “Whether it’s a free cup of coffee or 50% off a meal or whatever a business chooses to offer to cops, we are not afraid to express our gratitude and say that we stand behind, those who protect us. We will interview police officers from all over Western New York and Southern Ontario and offer opportunities for listeners to thank police for the ways they have benefited as a result of police presence in our communities.”

To discover what businesses are offering these goods and services and/or to add a business to the list, go to and click on ‘Props to Cops!’ or email:

David Gadreau Photography is proud to be able to offer discounted services to police officers for the month of July.  Information on this is available on the Props to Cops Page.

Port Colborne Skateboarding

Recently I had a chance to stop in at the Port Colborne skate park.  Sadly it was right before a heavy rain storm so there wasn’t as much time to shoot as I planned to have. I still was able to get some shots despite the short time frame.

Santa Claus Parade – Port Colborne 2014

This year 2014, Santa made his normal rounds to Port Colborne as he stopped by the city for the annual Santa Claus Parade.  The kids were given some candy and had a chance to tell Santa all about what they wanted for Christmas afterwards.  Here are a few pictures taken during the parade.  I hope you enjoy them and Santa brings all those presents to the children!  Hopefully he’ll be back for next year!
