Hello from Newfoundland, Canada

Hello,

My name is Chris I am a university student studying biology in St. John's, Canada. I enjoy fly-fishing, hunting and a variety of other activities including snowboarding. My goal is to capture the essence of those activities on tape and share my videos with the world.

I have shot with a variety of cameras including the vx2000, xl2, and various consumer cams.

Hi Chris!

I can't see the name Newfoundland without thinking of a band I saw here about ten years ago--Great Big Sea, or something like that. The lead told us that most people say it wrong, that it's New FOUND land. So I remembered...and if I say it like that people correct me. :)

Welcome to DV Info -- have fun shooting what you love doing!

As a Canadian Prairie boy that has consumed adult beverages in VERY close proximity to the GBS boys, I offer that the correct pronunciation is New FUN Land.

In all seriousness, it sounds pretty much like that. And we DON'T say A-BOOT either...

Newfoundlanders are renowned across Canada for being hard working and magnanimous. Often financial refugees, many Newfoundlanders leave the East Coast which has high unemployment for points West where they work their BUTTS off and introduce us to a wonderful adult beverage called Screech. If you have a Newfie for a friend, you have a friend for life.
