From the Ground Up - Client: Summit Helicopters

When I was 15, I was dead set on being a commercial helicopter pilot.  I remember getting all the information, pricing, duration of education, etc.  It might have been the price tag at that time that held me back from this path, I can't really say anymore.  I ended up going to Simon Fraser to study Psychology..what the hell happened there??  What I do know i[...]

My Favorite Images of 2017

It’s funny, isn’t it, the every day events that occur in our lives, ups and downs and highlights that constitute an entire year.  As we live it, it can sometimes feel boring or tedious, day to day, week to week.  But as the year winds down and we have a chance to truly reflect on what’s transpired, re-living those highlights, the laughter, the camaraderie, n[...]

A week at the 'Peaks' - Client: Sun Peaks Resort

Spending time and working with the great people of Sun Peaks Resort is always something I look forward to.  So, last week was even more special when I was able to go up and spend a few days on two separate shoots:  The first one was the The Alpine Fondue & Starlight Descent. (see the link for full details).  The mid-mountain lodge has been totally refurb[...]

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[...]

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[...]

Client - Kamloops Interior Summer School of Music

Enjoy the images below from my job with KISSM, which is an incredible part of Kamloops' music scene.  From their website:  'Kamloops Interior Summer School of Music is a community-based program that inspires children and youth to pursue their interest and passion in music, theatre and the arts.  With its flagship 3-week summer program and additional programs[...]

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 '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 [...]

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 [...]

Late Fall at Napier Lake

I've been driving Hwy 5a since I was 16 years old and living in Merritt.  To say I've gone by this particular scene at least a couple of hundred times would not be an exaggeration; and yet this was the first time that I'd actually planned a shoot here at a critical time of day.  It really goes to show that when we live in a particular environment it's easy t[...]
