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[...]

The making of 'Under a Blood Red Sky'

As a commercial and tourism photographer I'm always looking to stretch the parameters of creativity and impact.  Creating something powerful that has an emotional draw is what keeps me motivated to continue to stay fresh. This particular 'Ballerina Series' shoot with Hailey was born out of my visual concept of pairing this unique landscape (as for most of[...]

Regional Gems and Plain Hard Work

Technical ability, check.  Necessary equipment, check.  Regional information about the landscape and sunrise and sunset direction and time?  Wait, what? If the last point threw you a bit of curve ball, it shouldn’t have. I think we’ve all been guilty of yearning for a locale that offers cascading waterfalls, eternal rainbows and majestic elk running throu[...]

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[...]

Pursue the Passion

I've been a full time professional photographer for quite a while now, 14 years to be exact and I've loved every minute of it!  I know that I'll be doing this for a very long time to come, however there have been times when conceptualizing new ideas or showing up with passion has been a bit difficult.  Like everything in life, we need some spice from time to[...]

British Columbia's Mt. Robson - Jewel of the Rockies

For those of you who have visited the Alberta Rockies there's no mistaking the almost painful beauty that exists here.  I used to frequent the Jasper area often when I photographed wildlife and still have such fond memories.  There is a different kind of beauty that exists in the renowned Rocky Mountains however, one that is raw and moody, ethereal and awe i[...]

The making of 'Moonlight Escape' - From the 'Ballerina Series'

To say this was a fun shoot to execute would be a massive understatement.  There was a time late last winter when I was doing some soul searching, and I thought what better way to do it than to have camera in hand.  So I ventured down to the Overlander bridge area in Kamloops and started taking some dusk and night shots.  I was extremely happy with them and [...]

Tucked Away but Worth the Trek - Hornby Island

Earlier this month we were fortunate enough to visit this relatively small, sleepy  (although apparently not so in the peak summer months) island with gorgeous coast lines and a provincial park that could go toe to toe with almost any other in BC. Coming from Kamloops, in the interior of BC, I had an idea what to expect as a good friend of mine frequents [...]
