This is a photograph of a young couple that I picked up hitchhiking and dropped off in a pitch black campground at midnight while burning across BC to get to Ymir one night. Somewhere outside of Osoyoos.
Some snaps of an early morning bushwack on the mountain. Too busy jumping around in the snow and finding sun spots for tea to take a lot of photographs this time round. Ravens are my favourite bird so we were very happy to have these two following us around.
Stopped in at an agency in Seattle on the way to Oregon in September and one of the creatives ran home and got this kite for me as a present. I can’t wait to fly a kite again in the sun. Like everyone in Vancouver !
Made a very early morning trip all the way to the Vedder River to go salmon fishing with a giant German friend of mine. Snow powdered mountains, river mist, sun, fall leaves and lots of fish at the end of a winding country road.
I am just back from a relaxing and amazingly sun drenched vacation up on a friends property near Desolation Sound. The whole property is covered in all kinds of mosses. We spent a lot of time lying about in soft, sunny spots. It’s October and this is a rain forest so it might have been the last hurrah of the year. Certainly the last ocean swim until some kind of polar bear dip in January. The ocean at this time is actually perfect for polar bears already.
Another shot I love from the shoot on Mt Washington. So many nice ones. It’s so refreshing to be able to create so much in such a small amount of time. All I can think of right now is where can I find some more people to do more for personal portfolios! I gotta run, the sun it out!!
Last amazing hot weekend in Vancouver at our most infamous beach. I had wanted to photograph Elissa sometime after seeing her on the street the day before and it turned out we were all going to the beach on the same day. The water was so warm we were diving into the surf for an hour.
I already posted a few shots but here’s the actual layout and links.
These are some photos and interviews I did for a feature on young female surfers in Tofino. I had to go up and find the subjects – guy looking for young female surfers to photograph, classic. Send Johann! All the girls I met had interesting stories and were very friendly. Unfortunately I could only stay there for the two days this time as I was on a roll and everyone was starting to recognize me and getting used to calling me up for sessions and tacos.
I’m going back for more though.
And I just spent the weekend at Sombrio in the water, so I’ll be a bit more wave ready now too.
Thanks to the Surf Sisters!! Go there if you want to get some great lessons with some awesome girls.

Been working on some leisure landscapes now that the weather has come round. I was waiting for enough sunny days to heat up the city so people would start swimming in the ocean, lakes and rivers. Hope it lasts because I have a long list of places I want to get to this summer.
I took all these shots in Germany on an old Nikon camera I repaired. I bought it in Liverpool and it had been sitting on my shelf for a while now. I just wanted to take a pictures here and there and not know how they turned out until later.
I was waiting for the train in Berlin one evening and this woman was carefully touching up her makeup in the mirror.
