Travel // Palm Springs, CA Pt. 1

Back in February, I had the pleasure of traveling to Palm Springs, California for a week. It was a blissfully sunny week, equal parts spent relaxing and exploring/hiking. The town is incredibly charming and quirky, with '60s modernism influences abound. Nestled in a valley between mountains, the city itself is very flat with hardly a high rise building in sight.Also, yes, the sky is that blue. No filter required.Things to do in Palm Springs:That Pink Door (1100 E Sierra Way, Palm Springs, CA 92264) The architectural history and weirdness of Palm Springs equates to fun surprises around every corner. One of my favourite spots to visit was the infamous 'Pink Door' - nearby is also a house with two lion statues decked out with inflatable pool toys! (Both houses pictured below) ...

Lookbook // Pathétique Couture

I recently had the chance to do a lookbook-style shoot with Pathétique Couture, a new alternative lifestyle brand started/co-owned by my friend Leith here in Victoria, BC. We spent an evening taking advantage of some grungey looking locations downtown, as well as a street lined with beautiful cherry blossoms (hello, spring!).You can find Pathétique Couture on Instagram and Facebook, and their website/store. ...

2016 Favourites // Landscapes + Bonus iPhone Wallpapers

Well, I thought I'd start out this end of the year thing a little differently here. I've included a few of my favourite 2016 landscapes, with downloadable iPhone wallpapers available (click on the name of the phone you have underneath the photo and save it, easy as pie!) These photos have been in steady rotation on my lock screen. I've been all over lower Vancouver Island, as well as to New York City, Toronto and Portland. It's been a fun year of travel, and I can't wait to explore more in 2017! Enjoy! Please note: these background wallpapers are all for PERSONAL USE ONLY, this does not give you the right to redistribute, edit or profit off my images in any way.

Promotional // Stinging Belle

Back in April, I got the opportunity to do an impromptu photoshoot with Stinging Belle, just days before the announcement that they would be playing the massive Rock The Shores festival this year. We came away with a few incredible photos from a quick 15-minute shoot in an alley. These guys and gal are doing huge things, so keep your ears and eyes peeled (and maybe grab a ticket for the Friday of Rock The Shores).This was a simple one-light setup; I fired a remote Canon 430EX II Flash through a massive softbox slightly to the right. As we were shooting in the evening, it was dark in the alley at this point, so there was virtually no ambient light to speak of. I upgraded camera bodies recently, and my Canon 6D handled...

Portraits // Tara

Recently I had the chance to work with the lovely Tara Brunet to shoot some portraits for her upcoming e-book! Tara is a personal trainer and nutritionist based in Victoria, and you can check out her website here. I was able to test out my new Sigma 24-35mm F2 Art lens during this shoot, and I am BEYOND impressed with the results - dang that lens is sharp - even wide open at F2!...

Live Music // Arkells @ Commodore Ballroom (Night 1)

At the beginning of February, I had the chance to hop a ferry to Vancouver for a few days and shoot the ever amazing Arkells at the Commodore Ballroom. Modern Space and Dreamers opened up the show, and were the perfect warm-up for the ball of energy that is Arkells.I was fortunate enough to shoot BOTH nights - here are my favourite images from Night 1. Modern Space Dreamers Arkells  ...

Promotional // Cr0atia

Recently I had the chance to work with a fabulous up and coming band from Victoria called CR0ATIA - Matt, Steve and Tash are absolutely wonderful humans and so much fun to photograph. We squeezed into their tiny jamspot to shoot some of my favourite promotional images to date. Sometimes all you need is one light and a simple location to make things work! For the first group of shots, we built a backdrop wall with a bunch of the gear around the jam spot - and it ended up turning out pretty fantastic, if I do say so myself. I look forward to hearing more from these guys and collaborating again in the future.These are all shot on my Canon 5d mark II with a 28mm f2.8 and 50mm f1.4 lens, and...

Portraits // Carolyn

At the beginning of August, I had the pleasure of doing a fun shoot with a good friend of mine, Carolyn. We picked a location out in Saanich to shoot at; there is a gigantic tree in a field right by the Saanich Peninsula Hospital, so we trekked across and set up to shoot.Though most of the images from this shoot are digital, I did bring my medium format Mamiya RB67 along as well, for the first time in a while! I tried out some new film I picked up from Camera Traders - the Lomography LomoChrome Purple film. I metered and shot it at 200 ASA to try and achieve a more saturated effect, as it can be rated between 100-400 ASA. Those images are included at the bottom of the post,...
