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[...]

Kelowna's 'Indigenous World Winery' Shoot.

The 'Indigenous World Winery' is a fascinating winery, located in West Kelowna, BC.  Robert Louie served as the Chief of the Westbank First Nation until 2016. He and his wife Bernice are the originators of the Indigenous World concept.  They are Okanagan Syilx descendants and have a strong passion for nature, the land, and the rich history and traditions of [...]

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[...]

Kate - Milan Bound

Kate is a very gifted young lady that I've known for a while, along with her family, who happens to be on her way to Milan, Italy for a year leaving next month.  So, it worked out beautifully that we were able to put this shoot together really quickly.  We ended up with 3 downtown locations visited and lucked out with great light!  Some new gear added a diff[...]

Radiant Bond - The Creation and Story

When I was given the opportunity to work on this stunning piece of property, south of Knutsford, near Kamloops, BC, (160 acres to to be exact) along with a beautiful woman, who I've had the pleasure of knowing and working with on many occasions, I was gob-smacked!  Add to that a couple of equine hotties and I couldn't have asked for a better way to spend a s[...]

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[...]

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[...]

Night on the Town

I'd been wanting to use this locale, which is actually the upper most level of a parkade in Kamloops with a woman for a very long time; like years long!  One of the reasons I hadn't used it before was for the sheer danger.  The model (Stef) is actually about 18" from falling to her death.  Makes me cringe just writing that but it's the simple truth.  I had u[...]

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[...]
