Client - DentalCorp for Grasslands Dental Care

I've worked with the great people from Grasslands on a couple of other occasions, and is such the case here, it was time to capture some new faces on the team and also provide a bit of a refresh in a couple different areas.  To see more of my work, go to my portfolios here

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[...]

Snow Angel - Story and Visual Journey

I've worked and known Valerie for a number of years now, I've also known that she's got a crazy passionate work ethic, is super easy to collaborate with and has a creative side that helps us put a better product out there.  Not to mention that she's a hoot to be around :) I had worked on a shoot in that same area just days before and the landscape was sur[...]

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[...]

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: 'Angel of the Rivers' & 'Urban Flow'

Normally, when I'm putting one of my 'The Making of' together it's of one particular subject matter.  As you can see by the header image, this one is a bit unique!  That being said I had to include both because although they're different, the two shoots happened on the same night and within about 20 feet of each other :) 'Angel of the Rivers' was a concep[...]

I was fortunate enough to work with Sagehills Dental Clinic this week, consisting of Dr. David Ciriani and Dr. Matt Francisco.  The clinic is located at 755 McGill road, suite 201.  Dr. Ciriani also owns the 'Smile Spa' in the same complex, but on the front of the building, facing north.  Sagehills just moved from their downtown locale in October of last yea[...]

Road & Ferry Tripping to Comox, Chilliwack, Coquitlam - Client: Dentalcorp

I've been working with a huge client over the past couple of years, Dentalcorp (Dental Corporation of Canada).  I received a call in December to schedule and shoot three clinics in order to refresh their brand and imagery.  I was especially excited that one of those clinics was the little town of Comox on Vancouver Island.  I'd never been there and am always[...]
