The Myth of 'Excellent Camera Equipment'

As a pro talking to other pros it is a common industry fallacy that we hear time and time again from current or prospective clients.  "So and so has a really good camera', or "so and so just bought a brand new Nikon/Canon", implying that from a customer/client perspective they and their chosen photographer are 'good to go!!'  It comes up so often that al[...]

2018 Year in Review - Personal Favorites

I guess one of the best things about being a generalist photographer is that you have the the opportunity to be in a multitude of situations, meet a vast array of people with different mindsets, and are fortunate enough to get to experience some crazy interesting things along the way.  On top of that there are opportunities that are often not easy to come by[...]

Marketing and Branding - Powerful Imagery Matters

Showcasing.  That’s probably the one word that best describes what strong commercial and promotional imagery can do for your business or tourism destination.  Explain to people your business, even in the most intricate of detail and they’ll get a fairly solid understanding about what you do.  Show them however, with the benefit of powerful photos and you hav[...]

Client - gta Architecture, Kelowna, BC

The last few weeks have been a bit of a blur, trekking around the province with various clients; it's been a load of fun to be honest.  One of the projects that I really enjoyed and is now in the books was for gta Architecture, an Okanagan (Kelowna) based firm.  I was contacted by them shortly before this job began with a request for high-end project work th[...]

Tourism Valemount - Mountain Lifestyle

One of the best things I can say about working with Tourism Valemount and VARDA (Valemount & Area Recreation Development Association) is the people.  There is a warm, family type of atmosphere whenever I get the opportunity to work in the community.  That of course always leads me to feel like I'm going on vacation when I make the 3.25 hour journey north[...]

Kamloops Museum - 'Ruin and Renewal: Fire on the Interior Plateau'

When Julia Cyr from the Kamloops Museum & Archives contacted me to ask if I would document another installation for them, this one being 'Ruin and Renewal:  Fire on the Interior Plateau', I was excited; not only because the staff and management there are fantastic but also because I thought it made a natural transition from the Kamloops Fire Fighters Cal[...]

Kamloops Fire Fighters' Calendar Preview- 2019

It's a wrap!  The dehydration, carb cutting, chicken and veggies only diet, weight training until you can taste metal, face melting cardio workouts are over...and that's just my training! ;) To be serious, the guys and one kick ass girl put in a tremendous amount of work training, prepping and being 'models for a day' during our conceptualized shoots for wha[...]

Client - BC Interior Logging Association

I had the pleasure to work with Nancy Hesketh of the BC Interior Logging Association this past weekend at a number of venues for their annual conference and trade show, including:  Kamloops Indian Band's Pow Wow grounds, the Columbo lodge, the Sandman Signature as well as the Coast hotel conference centre.  The Premiere made an appearance for the final day t[...]

A Walk About With Client - Chahal & Priddle LLP, Kamloops

I'd worked with Hardeep Chahal and Kerri Priddle a few years ago, on a project called 'Profiles of Excellence' through Glacier Media, where outstanding businesses were recognized in a beautiful publication.  I remember them then as open to fun, creative concepts, so when I was contacted by the firm to help re-fresh their brand I was super excited to get to w[...]
