9,000 Words

If a picture is worth a thousand words, nine pictures are worth 9,000. But, what if these nine pictures were arranged differently, speaking not individually but as a collective with a temporal orderliness or a 'plot' to these images. Well then, rather than simply being a wall of descriptive text about 9 individual scenes these photographs would tell a story. Stories don't have to be complicated or confounding in any way, neither, do they have to be profound by making a statement about 'the human condition' all a story does and all it needs to do is tell a story. I'll leave you a small story below about people and scenes I discovered on a walk this past Sunday.

The Note

           I hope this has been interesting to view and overall something a little different. The location was Barnett Beach near Simon Fraser University and the note and tent a derelict beach-side shelter hidden by the edge of the woods. I never saw or met the shelters owner but it looks like he's an interesting fellow. Have a great week and yes, of course I left everything as I found it.

Why Create a Blog?

I’ve decided to create a blog, currently on Google Blogger or BlogSpot to better showcase some of the content I post to Flickr. Don’t get me wrong Flickr is a great platform for sharing photographs and images however, its very limiting in terms of its ability to both display greater bodies of work such as photo projects, provide background and context to the images, and even display a greater variety of images and photographs. Yes, although its possible to post a variety of styles of imagery to a single photo-stream in Flickr


Some Variety, this is an abstract image of back lit and aging pillars.            
  This culminates in a situation in which one is encouraged to post specific themes of photo’s such as forested landscapes. Although, I very much enjoy taking editing and sharing forest and landscape themed images I sometimes find it disheartening when I post something a little different and find it to be far less popular than images of a different theme. Despite one’s best efforts t…

Meaning in Night

There's something striking about night scenes such as these. Their lonely, mysterious and fascinating as your left wondering about the location and asking yourself the question. 'Where is this and what was its purpose?' Well, wonder no more, I’ll provide some background details and information on some of my favorite night photographs as well as discuss what drove me to create these images.


Turning Back Around 
Night photography is an intimidating subject for some because of the inherent low light environment so, I've left some tips for beginners at the bottom of the article. I’ve always found the night compelling, the world looks startlingly different without the sun lighting it especially, in urban and industrial areas.What I feel distinguishes these locations is the variety of light sources. The soft highlights created by several forms of lighting like incandescent, fluorescent and LED change the nature of a scene, directing your focus toward the details important to …

A Snowy Winter: December 2016

This year due to La Nina there’s been an unusual amount of snow in British Columbia’s Lower Mainland. During the two years preceding late 2016 and 2017 there had been scarcely any snow at lower elevations. The recent cold weather provided an interesting opportunity to shoot in familiar locations, that aren’t just snow dusted, but are experiencing true winter conditions. The snow may have already begun to melt, well at least at lower elevations but it may yet return and now’s as great a time as any to share some photographs from the winter of 2016.
Third Person
           The first major snowfall hit in December and lasted to early January 2017. It was ‘wet’ snow and didn’t build up as severely as the snow from later January to early February. Some of my most interesting winter photographs were taken in December in Golden Ears Provincial Park, Pitt Lake and Harrison Mills during a heavy snowfall. Kilby, near Harrison Mills, was utterly transformed by the snowfall from a bleak…
