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[...]

Snow Angel - Story and Visual Journey

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[...]

The Making of 'Shangri la' - Village of Sun Peaks

In the fall of 2015 I was having conversations with some of the staff at Tourism Sun Peaks, mostly with their then Marketing Coordinator, Christina Antoniak about new and dynamic ways in which to portray the village.  I was literally wracking my creative brain trying from all angles to visualize a way in which we could incorporate the village and Tod Mountai[...]

The Making of: 'Angel of the Rivers' & 'Urban Flow'

Normally, when I'm putting one of my 'The Making of' together it's of one particular subject matter.  As you can see by the header image, this one is a bit unique!  That being said I had to include both because although they're different, the two shoots happened on the same night and within about 20 feet of each other :) 'Angel of the Rivers' was a concep[...]

The Making of 'Walking with Ghosts' - Client: Sun Peaks Resort

This being the last day of 2015, I was always going to have some solid memories of this shoot while working at the 'Top of the World' at Sun Peaks for Tourism Sun Peaks and Sun Peaks Resort.  The shoot itself was something I had conceptualized and thought about for quite a while.  The Marketing Manager, Christina Antoniak was gracious enough to listen to my [...]

My favourites of 2015

To sum 2015 up in words would be extremely difficult, luckily I get to express my feelings about it with imagery!  My most successful year to date, with some incredible situations, people, clients and subject matter that will forever be remembered.  It's so easy to forget little nuances and emotions until I go back and relive each scenario or short duration [...]
