Experience the People, landscape and City of Vanderhoof, BC!

When I got a call from Jennifer at Fresh Inc. in Kamloops about a potential large project needing to be shot in Vanderhoof, BC, I was actually in Iceland at the time working on an article for Outdoor Photography Canada Magazine with a buddy.  The project sounded very intriguing and involved refreshing and re-branding much of Vanderhoof.  I can't go into much[...]

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[...]

Stef and Cory's Live Proposal - Story and Images

It was one of those days that etch themselves into your memory; you know, the kind that leaves both things heard and said and seen so vivid you can recall it and instantly get the same feelings as when it was happening.  We all have experiences like this in our mental hard drive, but this one was just...wow.  No really, it was fun and daring and a bit of a c[...]

I've worked and known Valerie for a number of years now, I've also known that she's got a crazy passionate work ethic, is super easy to collaborate with and has a creative side that helps us put a better product out there.  Not to mention that she's a hoot to be around :) I had worked on a shoot in that same area just days before and the landscape was sur[...]

My Favorites of 2016

The end is near for '16.  Some will be saddened and some will be ecstatic to see the calendar change.  For me it was an absolute mixture of every emotion under the sun.  My work (and play) was once again so good to me and it always provides me with vivid memories and smiles as I remember the variety of clients and jobs, the friends I share it with, unimagina[...]

My Story Behind the Latest Canadian Geographic Cover

I was instructing a group of seven amateur photographers at the time this cover image was created.  We were in hard bottom zodiac (16' I believe), deep into the Khutzeymateen Inlet, and on day two of our three day epic adventure.  When I talk about epic to describe this place and the experiences it holds I truly mean it.  Everyone, including myself in the fi[...]

For businesses and corporations I've compiled a revised edition of Kamloops and area images for use.  One of the most asked questions is can I purchase one of your Kamloops images for my website?  Yes, of course you can.  Here are some common uses: Website - Both home page and internal (price depends on where the image is being used and the duration) [...]
