5 Top Reasons to Hire a Commercial Photographer

As a professional commercial photographer, it’s always gratifying to work with people who appreciate what excellent imagery can do for their business.  I also understand that the value applied to those images in order to craft your brand can be a lot to absorb.  Good photography is not cheap, but when you put so much of your time, energy, and money into buil[...]

Client: Sun Peaks Resort - Mountain Life

Tourism Sun Peaks and I had been chatting for quite a while about the content in this shoot; we just needed the weather to cooperate!  Sometimes winter shoots aren't all that easy to schedule for this reason alone.  Add family schedules into the mix and it gets even more difficult.  I had brought up the topic of expansive village shots at night to Jennifer a[...]

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[...]

My Favorites of 2016

The end is near for '16.  Some will be saddened and some will be ecstatic to see the calendar change.  For me it was an absolute mixture of every emotion under the sun.  My work (and play) was once again so good to me and it always provides me with vivid memories and smiles as I remember the variety of clients and jobs, the friends I share it with, unimagina[...]

My Story Behind the Latest Canadian Geographic Cover

I was instructing a group of seven amateur photographers at the time this cover image was created.  We were in hard bottom zodiac (16' I believe), deep into the Khutzeymateen Inlet, and on day two of our three day epic adventure.  When I talk about epic to describe this place and the experiences it holds I truly mean it.  Everyone, including myself in the fi[...]

New Kamloops and Area Images for Commercial Use

For businesses and corporations I've compiled a revised edition of Kamloops and area images for use.  One of the most asked questions is can I purchase one of your Kamloops images for my website?  Yes, of course you can.  Here are some common uses: Website - Both home page and internal (price depends on where the image is being used and the duration) [...]

The Making of 'Shangri la' - Village of Sun Peaks

In the fall of 2015 I was having conversations with some of the staff at Tourism Sun Peaks, mostly with their then Marketing Coordinator, Christina Antoniak about new and dynamic ways in which to portray the village.  I was literally wracking my creative brain trying from all angles to visualize a way in which we could incorporate the village and Tod Mountai[...]

Kamloops and Sun Peaks - A Photographer's Paradise

When I was a child growing up in Merritt, my outlook on Kamloops and the surrounding area was that of a hot, almost barren landscape; in its' defence that was based solely on driving into Mac Park for soccer games on the weekend, cramming down Big Macs and whipping back home.  Having had the privilege of living here for the last 16 years now I know that's en[...]
