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 [...]

The Soft Side of Fall

It's been a crazy busy summer and fall for me which has been awesome! New clients and friends, travel, exciting work, etc.  The one downfall is I don't get too much time to spend on my own marketing and promotion, like blogging!  I love to write almost as much as to photograph and with that comes the enjoyment of helping people on their own visual paths.  So[...]

Profiles of Education - Commercial Work in Vancouver

Last week found me in the beautiful city of Vancouver working on a commercial project promoting certain post secondary institutions.  Because I've been down there quite a bit over the last year, I find myself enjoying the big city work environment more and more.  The trend looks to continue as the projects grow and expand and thus the creativity and execu[...]

The Backcountry of Sun peaks - Experiential Perfection

I've worked for Tourism Sun Peaks for sometime now, shooting most of the their lifestyle, landscape and leisure activities and events.  It's been a great experience working with a progressive marketing team that 'gets it', and it's also been a lot of fun getting to know the whole resort, from village to back country.  As someone who was an avid skier growing[...]

The making of 'Under a Blood Red Sky'

As a commercial and tourism photographer I'm always looking to stretch the parameters of creativity and impact.  Creating something powerful that has an emotional draw is what keeps me motivated to continue to stay fresh. This particular 'Ballerina Series' shoot with Hailey was born out of my visual concept of pairing this unique landscape (as for most of[...]

Light the Night

On my spare time in between shoots, even after 15 years of being a full time pro, I still have an incredibly strong urge to create what I feel passionate about.  A place in time that doesn't involve time constraints, creative parameters or pressures of any kind.  I love creating images of Ballerinas in different scenarios in and around my home town of Kamloo[...]

British Columbia's Mt. Robson - Jewel of the Rockies

For those of you who have visited the Alberta Rockies there's no mistaking the almost painful beauty that exists here.  I used to frequent the Jasper area often when I photographed wildlife and still have such fond memories.  There is a different kind of beauty that exists in the renowned Rocky Mountains however, one that is raw and moody, ethereal and awe i[...]

The making of 'Moonlight Escape' - From the 'Ballerina Series'

To say this was a fun shoot to execute would be a massive understatement.  There was a time late last winter when I was doing some soul searching, and I thought what better way to do it than to have camera in hand.  So I ventured down to the Overlander bridge area in Kamloops and started taking some dusk and night shots.  I was extremely happy with them and [...]

Tucked Away but Worth the Trek - Hornby Island

Earlier this month we were fortunate enough to visit this relatively small, sleepy  (although apparently not so in the peak summer months) island with gorgeous coast lines and a provincial park that could go toe to toe with almost any other in BC. Coming from Kamloops, in the interior of BC, I had an idea what to expect as a good friend of mine frequents [...]
