Tourism Valemount - Mountain Lifestyle

One of the best things I can say about working with Tourism Valemount and VARDA (Valemount & Area Recreation Development Association) is the people.  There is a warm, family type of atmosphere whenever I get the opportunity to work in the community.  That of course always leads me to feel like I'm going on vacation when I make the 3.25 hour journey north[...]

Kamloops Fire Fighters' Calendar Preview- 2019

It's a wrap!  The dehydration, carb cutting, chicken and veggies only diet, weight training until you can taste metal, face melting cardio workouts are over...and that's just my training! ;) To be serious, the guys and one kick ass girl put in a tremendous amount of work training, prepping and being 'models for a day' during our conceptualized shoots for wha[...]

Trek to the North Side

For anyone who's spent any time at all exploring the Thompson Okanagan region, it's easy to see the vast diversity it contains.  From the lowland hoodoos and rugged hills rising up to the grasslands, heavily forested pine, spruce, fir and even cedars and as we climb even higher, stunning alpine meadows.  It's easy to see what keeps people here!  I've lived i[...]

Having had the opportunity to work with some very stylish individuals last year, all from my beautiful city of Kamloops, I was eager to showcase both the area and these beautiful ladies (both inside and out) in my upcoming column for Outdoor Photography Canada Magazine.  I had just finished writing my feature article, 'Creating Unique in the Iconic - Iceland[...]

My Favorite Images of 2017

It’s funny, isn’t it, the every day events that occur in our lives, ups and downs and highlights that constitute an entire year.  As we live it, it can sometimes feel boring or tedious, day to day, week to week.  But as the year winds down and we have a chance to truly reflect on what’s transpired, re-living those highlights, the laughter, the camaraderie, n[...]

Client - Tourism Valemount for: Mt. Robson - 'Let the Mountain Move You'

Valemount's tag line is 'Let the Mountains Move You', and it works!  Surrounded by peaks in a pristine valley, with Mt. Robson Mere minutes away, I'm not sure it could be more suitable.  Thus the title for this blog, because on its own the tallest peak in the Canadian Rockies is capable of producing emotions that do just that, move you to the core.  So, when[...]

Client: Sun Peaks Resort - Mountain Life

Tourism Sun Peaks and I had been chatting for quite a while about the content in this shoot; we just needed the weather to cooperate!  Sometimes winter shoots aren't all that easy to schedule for this reason alone.  Add family schedules into the mix and it gets even more difficult.  I had brought up the topic of expansive village shots at night to Jennifer a[...]
