Stories of British Columbia

After three weeks exploring northern British Columbia, what sticks in my mind is not so much the beauty in the landscape, although it was abundant, but the beauty in the people.

Ten photographers at the end of Develop Your Creative Vision workshop.

A Bella Coola High

We had a feeling something special was happening from the very first day. At the end of the second day, our students were saying things like, "I've already learned so much! How can we keep up this pace?".

Just like a tulip

Tulip time, that wonderful season when colourful little beauties pop up and joyfully announce that spring is definitely here!

Dancing in the rain

Photography in a rain storm at night can result in some creative images, especially if you allow yourself the freedom to play.

Rain, rain, come again

Last week I spent a few delightful hours in a downpour. I was with my friend Richard, driving around in his car and photographing through the windshield. We called it the "Jeep Filter".

Best Images from 2015

I gave myself a year-end assignment today to select my best images of 2015. I've avoided this in the past because it involves some challenging introspection, hard decisions and a lot of time. But, as with any good assignment, I learned a thing or two about myself.

Things I get to do with my camera …

I've been getting to do a wide variety of things lately with my camera. Well, ok, pretty much everything is with my camera! Here's a taste of a few of those things.

Riding with the King

"What was that?" I notice just about every motorcycle that goes by but I did a double take when I saw a bearded rider with a sidecar rumble by me. In the sidecar was a dog wearing a helmet and a pair of goggles. "I've GOT to photograph this!"

Gifts of Abundance

Considering our bounty of fish from the sea along with the sound of the humpbacks feeding in the background, I was struck with the sense of abundance we were given.  What a privilege to be part of this Creation with gifts all around us. And there was more to come.

My First, Best Fishing Story

I'm not a fisherman. But my son, Byron sure is. He fishes in lakes, rivers, oceans and even puddles if he thinks a fish might be there.

Coming Together

It's such a gratifying feeling when, after working so hard for more than 2 years, the efforts of a whole team of people come together. I'm talking about a major four-day conference for photographers called CAPA Photo Expo that came to an end on August 3.
