Short Stint in Brussels

Being the beer lover I am, and the flight into Brussels being the cheapest from Vancouver to Europe, it was an easy decision to have Brussels the first stop on my 8 week romp through Europe. I only spent two days in Brussels, and was mainly just recovering from my jetlag. Due to the jetlag,… Read more »

Zoa Peak Snowshoe Adventure

Sunday a small group of us pilled into my Delica and drove east past Hope for a snowshoe adventure. I didn’t intend to go so far for the first snowshoe of the year, but due to a severe lack of snow on all of the local Vancouver mountains, it was either here, or somewhere out… Read more »

Photographing the Palouse Day 2

Day two photographing the Palouse had Lee and I back up on Steptoe Butte to shoot the sunrise. That meant waking up at 4:40am to get up there in time. It was however most certainly worth it. We got to witness a spectacular deep red sky as the valley woke up below us. As the… Read more »

Photographing the Palouse Day 1

After the road trip to Tofino, I was still itchy to get on the road, and take the my new Delica to do some more exploring. The Palouse for landscape photographers is one of those “must shoots before you die” locations. The big open fields, the contrast of colors, the subtle soft shadows as day… Read more »

Tofino Road Trip

Andrew was back in town for another week after busting his ass up north. It also just so happened that Lee was heading down to the coast, so we decided to drag Oliver along and do a quick weekend camp trip out to Tofino. It was my first time out in Tofino in in about… Read more »

My New Ride a 1995 Mitsubishi Delica

Apart from a 6 month stint when I was 16, I have never owned a vehicle*. That all changed on Wednesday when I bought this Mitsubishi Delica, freshly imported from Japan, and newly named the Delinquent. Ever since Touring Van, I have dreamt of buying a 4×4 van, that I could drive the Americas in,… Read more »

Mystic Beach Hike

I don’t visit my brother Tony enough. Especially considering he only lives a short ferry ride away in the beautiful (and craft beer haven) city of Victoria. When I do visit however, we usually go for at least one hike. This go around we did the short walk into Mystic Beach up the coast from… Read more »

Iona Beach Postcard

My good friend Kyle came to Vancouver for a new years visit. I wanted to take Kyle to a few spots in Vancouver he had never been before. One of my favorite places in the area to shoot photos is Iona Beach, and since Kyle had never been before, and the weather was fantastic we… Read more »

Snowshoe Lake Adventure

After Christmas I thought it would be fun to organize a snowshoe trip before heading back home to Vancouver. Due to time limitations, I decided on sticking somewhere close, and explore Snowshoe Lake near Edgewood in the Inonoaklin Valley. Andrew, his sister, my brother Rob, and Helmut all made it out for the trek around… Read more »

North Shore Mountains Timelapse

Another beautifully sunny winter day in Vancouver. While waiting for my afternoon tea water to boil, I noticed that the clouds on the north shore were rolling up the mountains quite quickly. I figured it would make a good timelapse, so I setup my tripod on our patio and went back to work. I think… Read more »

    Every year near the end of August/beginning of September the Kokanee (a type of land locked salmon) leave the Arrow Lakes and make their way up all the local creeks to spawn. It is a fun event to watch as there is often really good wildlife watching. Eagles, Ospreys, Herons, bears, and countless other predators… Read more »

    My good friend Ryan asked me if I would be willing to shoot his sister Brandi’s wedding. While I hadn’t shot too many weddings before, I agreed to shoot it for them, with the understanding that I was still a bit of a novice. The wedding ceremony was held at St. Anthony’s Parish in West… Read more »
