Based in the Thompson Okanagan region of British Columbia, not surprisingly a large percentage of my workload comes from the area. Being strictly a commercial photographer now for over twenty years I’ve experienced most economic sectors. Those include such areas as: Agriculture, clean energy, architecture and construction, fisheries, finance, manufacturing, mining, health care, technology, tourism, education and many more.
What is Commercial Photography?
When I summarize to people how the model of commercial photography works, the foundation is really about producing visual content for clients. This in turn allows them to market and sell their services, products or destination.
Here in the Okanagan, we have a wide range of sectors, which for me is exciting. One of the perks about producing this kind of imagery is the experience of learning about different corporations and businesses. Working with people and building relationships in a variety of settings though is probably my favorite aspect of the work, but to be honest I love it all. Whether it be capturing large or small scenarios with the drones or working in close quarters with people showcasing services, the diversity keeps me on point.
Aerial / Drone photography
On the topic of aerial/drone photography, it’s important to note that I am an ‘Advanced Pilot’ through Transport Canada. This allows me, with the coordination of Nav Canada to fly virtually anywhere, legally. There’s been a tremendous amount of negative press around drones (much of which is justified), but with the tighter regulations those negative scenarios are almost non-existent. This in turn makes flying one of the most exciting and rewarding aspects of the work. There’s nothing like being able to achieve a desired perspective without creative limits.
