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[...]

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[...]

Light the Night

On my spare time in between shoots, even after 15 years of being a full time pro, I still have an incredibly strong urge to create what I feel passionate about.  A place in time that doesn't involve time constraints, creative parameters or pressures of any kind.  I love creating images of Ballerinas in different scenarios in and around my home town of Kamloo[...]

Anchor Your Images for Impact!

Anchor Your Images for Impact: Have you ever felt that upon looking at a powerful image that you could just reach in and touch part of it, step in the frame and continue walking through it, lean in and smell the plant or flower that was portrayed?  If you have, then you’ve experienced an image with a great anchor point, something that solidifies the image[...]
