Jamaica Fat Tyre Festival in Up! Magazine

Jamaica Fat Tyre Festival in Up! Magazine

I’ve been going to Jamaica for the past few years for the annual Fat Tyre Festival. It’s one of my favorite trips, and every year I manage to come up with some sort of story to pay for the trip and convince them to invite me back for yet another year. Last year Andrew Findlay [...]

2011 Carly Rae Jepsen shoot

Almost everyone is now familiar with Canadian singer Carly Rae Jepsen and her hit song “Call Me Maybe”, however it was only a year and half ago that she was relatively unknown outside of Canada. I had a chance to shoot with the upcoming artist in April of 2011, and we created what I think [...]


2012 Fox Racing Catalog Shoot

2012 Fox Racing Catalog Shoot

Even though I’d like to publish Behind the Scenes posts and details of photoshoots more frequently, a lot of the time it just isn’t possible. Take last years shoot for the 2012 Fox Racing Catalog as an example. It was shot about 11 months ago, but the catalog and the photos have only been published [...]

January 3, 2011 The last photoshoot of 2010 is over and done, it’s a wrap! Back in December of 2010 while I was teaching my action photography class at Van Arts I had the pleasure of working with a couple of gymnast girls at the Phoenix Gym in Vancouver. Or I should say my students [...]

VanArts Figure Skating Shoot

VanArts Figure Skating Shoot

December 12, 2010 One of the things that I like most about teaching the Action and Sports Photography class at VanArts is that I get a chance to shoot new things. Take this past class as an example; while we normally shoot dance and parkour outdoors, (both of which I enjoy) the weather and circumstances [...]

VanArts Action Photography DP8 Class

December 11, 2010 I just finished teaching my Action and Sports Photography class at the Vancouver Institute of Media Arts, and I thought this was probably a good time to talk a little about it.

Tamrac ZipShot

Tamrac ZipShot

As a photographer I’m always on the move with a heavy bag full of gear and I’m always looking for ways to lighten my load, especially at those times when weight is crucial like trips into the backcountry. I’ve found all sorts of ways to take a few pounds off here and there, but one [...]
