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 frequently asked questions is can I purchase one of your Kamloops images for my website or promotional material?  Yes, of course you can.  Here are some common uses: Website – Both home page and internal (price depends on where the image[...]

Client: Kristina Benson Art - Wearable Art

Kristina Benson Art, (the creator of wearable art, seen here) such as leggings, kimonos, scarves, capris, tank tops, beanies and much more and I have worked together on numerous projects together over the last 10 years.  With the wearable art collection though, working on producing imagery for it has been special.  There is a buzz about the products and that[...]

From the Ground Up - Client: Summit Helicopters

When I was 15, I was dead set on being a commercial helicopter pilot.  I remember getting all the information, pricing, duration of education, etc.  It might have been the price tag at that time that held me back from this path, I can't really say anymore.  I ended up going to Simon Fraser to study Psychology..what the hell happened there??  What I do know i[...]

My Favorite Images of 2017

It’s funny, isn’t it, the every day events that occur in our lives, ups and downs and highlights that constitute an entire year.  As we live it, it can sometimes feel boring or tedious, day to day, week to week.  But as the year winds down and we have a chance to truly reflect on what’s transpired, re-living those highlights, the laughter, the camaraderie, n[...]

A week at the 'Peaks' - Client: Sun Peaks Resort

Spending time and working with the great people of Sun Peaks Resort is always something I look forward to.  So, last week was even more special when I was able to go up and spend a few days on two separate shoots:  The first one was the The Alpine Fondue & Starlight Descent. (see the link for full details).  The mid-mountain lodge has been totally refurb[...]

Carlyn - Chic in the Village

Carlyn and I originally chatted about getting our shoot done about a month ago.  But as fate would have it, we had to put it on the back burner for a bit due to our schedules.  We'd chatted enough and had a ton of concepts ready that whatever the weather was doing (and it snowed  in the village the day before),  we were ready to give it a go.  As it turned o[...]

Teneille, By Nature

I first met Teneille four years ago during a tourism shoot in Kamloops; a motorcycle shoot actually, on Harleys.  It was fantastic, either I was on the back of one shooting over the rider's shoulder, or shooting from the bed of my truck as we led the way with the two bikes following.  When we touched base again we chatted about her style, comfort level, loca[...]

Ashley - Electric Blue

I've had a bit of a hidden gem of a location in my back pocket for a long time now, probably 10 years or more.  It's close but quiet and thought it would make the perfect fall backdrop for Ashley.  She's a nature lover and I was pretty sure she'd be in her element for our shoot.  One thing about portraiture that's so true is that if someone's comfortable the[...]

Kelowna's 'Indigenous World Winery' Shoot.

The 'Indigenous World Winery' is a fascinating winery, located in West Kelowna, BC.  Robert Louie served as the Chief of the Westbank First Nation until 2016. He and his wife Bernice are the originators of the Indigenous World concept.  They are Okanagan Syilx descendants and have a strong passion for nature, the land, and the rich history and traditions of [...]
