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 [...]

2016 Personalized Group Workshops

I've had enough requests lately about next year's lineup of workshops that I thought I'd get this out early, in order to give people time to consider how they can make the new personalized group workshop format work for them.

The Soft Side of Fall

The Backcountry of Sun peaks - Experiential Perfection

Regional Gems and Plain Hard Work

Technical ability, check.  Necessary equipment, check.  Regional information about the landscape and sunrise and sunset direction and time?  Wait, what? If the last point threw you a bit of curve ball, it shouldn’t have. I think we’ve all been guilty of yearning for a locale that offers cascading waterfalls, eternal rainbows and majestic elk running throu[...]

The Magic of Water

While holding my annual 'Magic of Water' workshop this spring, I asked participants what their main objective was. The majority stated they wanted to produce images that gave water that soft, silky flow.  “No problem” I said.  People love water, and all the nuances it can produce while photographing it.  There are, however a number of factors that go into wh[...]
