Carlyn - Chic in the Village

Carlyn and I originally chatted about getting our shoot done about a month ago.  But as fate would have it, we had to put it on the back burner for a bit due to our schedules.  We'd chatted enough and had a ton of concepts ready that whatever the weather was doing (and it snowed  in the village the day before),  we were ready to give it a go.  As it turned o[...]

Teneille, By Nature

I first met Teneille four years ago during a tourism shoot in Kamloops; a motorcycle shoot actually, on Harleys.  It was fantastic, either I was on the back of one shooting over the rider's shoulder, or shooting from the bed of my truck as we led the way with the two bikes following.  When we touched base again we chatted about her style, comfort level, loca[...]

Ashley - Electric Blue

I've had a bit of a hidden gem of a location in my back pocket for a long time now, probably 10 years or more.  It's close but quiet and thought it would make the perfect fall backdrop for Ashley.  She's a nature lover and I was pretty sure she'd be in her element for our shoot.  One thing about portraiture that's so true is that if someone's comfortable the[...]

Late Fall at Napier Lake

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[...]

The Grasslands of Kamloops - A Place For the Senses

Being able to look for miles, breathe deep and feel the freedom that a space can bring to your senses can be a difficult thing to find.  For me, that place was secured the moment I first ventured into the 'Lac du Bois Grasslands Protected Area'. Taken directly from the BC Parks website, here's some pertinent information and a description:  Sweeping grassl[...]

Fall Photography Concepts

There's no doubt about it, fall is a beautiful time of year.  Crisp air, stunning colours, great smells!  What more can you ask for in a day? Based on that I put together three concepts that you may want to try and execute: 1.  The fall reflection.  Some things to remember:  Try and keep white or gray skies out of the image as they tend to take emphasi[...]
