Broughton Archipelago

A different kind of light Work. It’s interesting. One day I might be making a portrait, the next I might be shooting inside a bio-waste facility (really!). Often, it takes me to beautiful corners of the province that I might otherwise not see. Last week, I drove...

On the road

Fuji cameras and gear for work I have been shooting with Fujifilm X-cameras for enough years now, that I take for granted many of the features that brought me to the cameras in the first place. One of those features is portability. Something I was reminded...

Behind the scenes

A few moments at a press conference Some images captured at a presser today. In the relatively small confines of the Reception Hall, I shoot with the XF16-55mm f/2.8 lens on the X-T2 and, today, the XF35 f/2 lens on my X-Pro2.  Acros-R film simulation...

Long week, strong light

A high-contrast look between events Last week in Vancouver, I lost count of the number of events I shot. In between work photos, whether inside or out, I glimpsed interesting light. Always worth looking for these moments, as they tend to keep me motivated and...

One Wave

A gathering of pacific peoples I had the pleasure yesterday to photograph the tenth anniversary One Way Gathering, hosted by the Pacific Peoples’ Partnership in Victoria. This was a great opportunity to make portraits of a wonderfully diverse group of individuals, sharing culture and...

10 weeks later

Behind the scenes of a new government being sworn in On May 9, there was a provincial election in British Columbia. 70 days after the election, a new government was sworn in on July 18. A lot has happened to get us to this point,...

Expectations

Working with the Fujifilm X-series cameras and flash Funny thing about expectations, time can really change how you view things. I have worked with the XPro2 for a year and the XT2 nearly that long, and with the EF-X500 flash for the past few months. This...

Slow photography

A few weeks ago, I add the opportunity to shoot for a couple of hours in Sidney, B.C. This is a favourite long exposure location and I had pretty good light at sunrise. It’s always a nice treat to slow down to make these...

Rückblick – a look at 2016

Places and faces captured on the job Just cleaning up the work Lightroom catalog and ran across a few images from the past year. Some are of places I traveled to for work. Some are of the people at events I photographed. Some are of colleagues, sometimes...

Eight-Day Road

Chasing the Royals or how I didn’t get to use the new Fujifilm EF-X500 flash I am coming off a fairly intense week of work, dominated by two jobs. One was shooting at an annual, week-long convention. The second was documenting the Victoria-based events featuring the...
