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,...

Hustling (a lot)

Waiting (a little) This week, I spent three days at the Vancouver Convention Centre making photos during the First Nations Leaders’ Gathering. As you can see from the Government Flickr album, this is standard conference fare. Not a lot of art, just a lot of visual...

The X-Pro 2 Pt III-a jolly good slapping

Approaching Rawene Fujifilm X-Pro 2, 16-55/2.8 LM WR ISO 200, 1/60s @f8 Tena koe: I have a confession. I hate tripods. I have 2 of them and I don’t particularly like either. One is a lovely little foldaway and the other is a big...
