An extraordinary bright sun shined for two loving people who’s hearts shined even brighter! Much to be said about this sweet day with a heart felt ceremony and a very lovely couple and parents whom David and I enjoyed drinking wine with! … more to come
If ever you have the chance to camp with Félix and Abbey, go for it! Way way fun! Goofy and making the best everything. If you look up 'Joie de Vivre', you will be directed to Abbey and Félix. While they were surfing I was shooting a wedding. Later we all met up and they cooked me a fabulous meal I will always remember:) Love you guys!!!!!!!!!!
10 years ago, two lovely people (who's names can not be mentioned) were married at Long Beach Resort, Tofino. It was a privilege then to photograph their wedding and again to photograph their vow renewals just this past weekend. Only this time with two fabulous girls riddled with expressions! more to come..
Underground parties and the very interesting collection of people. How I love my hood!
that never happened. Sometimes projects just go unfinished. In this case the video for one of Scott's upcoming songs from his new album just came to a halt. Too bad, I found it to be very photogenic. Instead he is working on another new video which I look forward to shooting as well:)
A very creative and talented musician to be reckoned with. Taking images of Scott is always an adventure! He envisioned a desert like southern environment with a warm sunset and child swinging in the background. The irony is we shot this in the dead of winter on the 49th parallel. Damp bones and cold feet, the girls soldiered on. His two fabulous daughters were key to the success of this image along with everyone's patience and humour:) Album to be released in summer 2016.
His nickname is Captain Jack. Much can be said about my father who is a rather unique character. He graciously accepted my lens as a means to shield myself behind the camera and to desperately capture most every moment I have left with him. He stubbornly remains on his boat where he is king of his throne and defies doctor’s predictions. It’s been a prevailing array of heightened and mixed emotions over these past two years and still ongoing. For this I’ve been understandably out of the social loop. More to follow on this soon, for now carpe diem!
Due to a recent switch and new site ( still in construction ) as of Jan5th, all of my blog dating as far back from 2008 is no longer active except for a few recent posts. Perhaps an opportunity to start fresh! Thanks for checking in.
It is a privilege to photograph such a dedicated group of health minded motivated individuals. A true testament to will power and overcoming some discomfort for the inevitable gift of healing and well being. Admittedly, not so long ago, I was apprehensive to the the seemingly hip and fast growing industry of yoga. A year and half ago my sweetheart David motivated me to try and I can’t thank him enough. It’s one of those things you don’t know until you try and try again until it sinks in. It simply feels damn good! Thank you to the staff and patrons of Hudson Yoga for tolerating my lens in exchange for some sweet hot yoga with you awesome people!
Anna, a lover of sailing was THRILLED with this blustery bone chilled gale force winds where the winds howled so loud, we had to scream to be heard. We had only minutes outside the car before we were soaked by wind and rain. Most memorable experience! The evening was followed by much singing and dance at the Victoria Yacht Club with very animated family and guests! Kim Jay, you are a treat to work with!
A very multi-talented straight to the soul full rounded musician who eats, sleeps and breaths music. Always a treat to photograph you Oli, open and flexible and just damn handsome!
Crystal, Chris and good Company have been coming to me with their growing family almost yearly with their sweet children and I have the privilege to watch them grow. They are wild and free as every child should be (sounds like Dr. Suess). LOVE this family!
