My Top 25 Photos for 2014

It was a fun year photographically. I got to photograph some amazing athletes during the Canadian Special Olympics held at UBC, photograph some amazing families and grads, had a great reconnection with a past student who’s an amazing dancer, person, and I’m happy to be collaborating with in the new year on more dance sessions. I’ve been very lucky to have had wonderful support (you know who you are) and most of all, an amazing family that supports me. I’m looking forward to seeing (and photographing) what comes up in 2015!

Here’s 25 of some of my favourite images of 2014.

It’s been a while!

It’s been a while since I’ve updated this blog. Having a baby will do that to you! But my wife did suggest that I do a December Photo Challenge just for fun. Here’s the Challenge topics for December. Feel free to do it as well.

Family Portrait time!! Cindy, Nathan, and Emily

Very close friends of ours allowed us the privilege of doing their family photos and be the guinea pigs in testing my new/old chair. Luckily we had the lovely and very photogenic Emily volunteer to test it out for us. It was a fun shoot with lots of running and picking up of rocks! Thanks guys for a fun time!!

Project 52 – 11/52 The Tri Kids


I had the opportunity to photograph some former and current students competing in the Sun Rype Kids triathalon series. The triathalon consisted of a pool swim, bike ride, and run in and around Walnut Grove Community Centre in Langley, BC. It was very well run and had great participation.

I focused the shoot on Shamus, Eamon, Ryland, and Makenna. What a great job they did and thanks for asking me out to photograph it!



Project 52 – 6/52 – The (Air)Band Photos

This year we decided to try something a little different in our classes for Fine Arts just to mix it up and challenge the kids. We decided to give Airband a try since this years class really seemed to enjoy drama. Well 2 months of practicing and the kids presented to pretty much the entire school even though it was voluntary for them to attend. We had 2 sessions of performances, one before and one after recess. In all there were 14 performances including one done by some younger students from the audience. They did AMAZING. I have edited music video performances as well (email me if you want to see them) but I can’t post those.

These are a couple of the band styled photos we did after the performances of the groups. Shot outdoors just as the rain was coming with a neutral density filter to darken the sky and studio strobe to light the subjects.
