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[...]

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: '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[...]

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 [...]

Basically what's staying the same is the 'Digital Camera Basics & Foundational Photography workshop'.  That will continue to ha[...]

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[...]

Showcasing 'Orabella' by Homex Development.

I've worked with Homex Development for a number of years now in Kamloops; they're not only good people to work with but I love their designs and finished product.  It makes my job easy when I really appreciate the product. Hidden Trails at Mount Dufferin is the newest subdivision going in to the Dufferin area, and Orabella is located on Rockcress Drive. I[...]

The Myth of 'Good 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 all it[...]
