This one is a little different. It’s an impromptu snapshot of one of my mom’s cats (she was my cat when I was growing up, but now she’s a cranky old lady and tends to snub me when I visit). […]

This sunset in Port Townsend, Washington seemed to just last forever and ever. Port Townsend, Washington, USA.
I visited Marble Canyon in 2012, eleven years after a massive forest fire burned nearly 12% of Kootenay National Park. After more than a decade the area has only just begun to recover. Where once there was a forest there […]
Were it not for the incredibly overzealous and rude customs agents employed at the U.S. border (am I on an NSA watch-list now?) I would without a doubt consider visiting Port Townsend more often. It’s a truly beautiful little town […]
The (almost) ghost town of Sandon still has a few residents (crazy weird residents who like living in an extremely creepy horror movie style town, but still) so I guess you can’t truly call it abandoned, but it certainly appears […]
When Rachelle and I visited Hawaii in 2011 people more than once mistook her for a local. I can’t blame them, she certainly doesn’t look out-of-place here as she enjoys a quiet moment in this beautiful tropical garden. Maui, Hawaii.
Here is a shot of Seattle from what I guess kind of passes for a waterfront. I just don’t understand what the city planners of Seattle (if you can call them that) were thinking when they decided to build a […]
Many of the scenes on the TV show “Once Upon a Time” are filmed in an around the village of Steveston near Vancouver and it’s easy to see why. The town is incredibly picturesque and indeed many of the buildings […]
The waves here are big and the undertow is fierce. There are warning signs up and down the beach telling people to stay out of the water. So I when I walked along the beach one morning and encountered nothing […]
I find the Grey Jay to be an incredibly fascinating bird. Also known as the “Whiskey Jack” or Canada Jay these little guys are incredibly inquisitive. It doesn’t matter how far into the back country away from civilization you are, […]
Here it is ladies and gentlemen, the British Columbia Legislative Chamber, which is of course located inside the British Columbia Parliament Buildings in Victoria. This is where our wonderful and honourable elected officials conspire to spend your money in the […]
I don’t think you’d find anyone willing to argue that Moraine Lake isn’t one of the most beautiful lakes in Canada. But if you should be lucky enough to pay it a visit do yourself a favour and do a […]
I’ve been digging through the archives again and I came across this shot of Vancouver’s Yaletown neighbourhood just after an evening storm.
For such an important symbol of the games it’s somewhat incredible that it’s the one thing Vancouver managed to mess up in an otherwise well run games (notwithstanding the unseasonably warm and sunny weather that led to a lack of […]
You don’t get very far into photography before some tells you about the rule of thirds. Some people are downright dogmatic about it. Well I say rules were made to be broken, and here is a photo that does just […]
The trip along the Road to Hana on the island of Maui is without a doubt one of the most visually interesting excursions I have ever taken. This is due in no small part to how old it is. The […]
We went to the PNE (Pacific National Exhibition) to watch the Lights concert. I had my camera with me so I couldn’t go on any rides and had to be contented with taking pictures of them. Here is one of […]
One sentence I see far too often from photographers who post their work online, usually in forums, is “straight out of the camera”. Whenever I see this sentence I know I am about to see some boring, flat images with […]
My fiancée is a huge fan of Lights, so when we heard that she was performing at the PNE (Pacific National Exhibition) in Vancouver this year, there wasn’t much debate about whether we would go or not. Concert photography is […]
While out on a hike to Cheakamus Lake I came across this overturned stump. At the time I thought it looked like a horse head, but when I took a closer look I realised that it was actually a dragon. […]
