Ice

Ice

Ice I love ice. And the way my dualistic brain works, I immediately think of its opposite. Do any of you think like that? I seem hardwired that way. So, really, today I started thinking about ice by first thinking about heat waves. I live in BC, Canada and we are in the midst of a heat wave that breaks 100-year-old records and forest fires are burning intensely in the interior. So, uh huh, the planet is definitely warming. And, it’s […]

Vancouver Island Music Fest 2017

Vancouver Island Music Fest 2017 Another successful Vancouver Island Music Fest (VIMF) has come and gone. With its quick passing it seems almost dream-like as in “Did that really happen and it’s over already…again?” Well, it is only a weekend but it did seem to move faster than normal to me. There are a lot of music festivals out there so it’s no small feat for a festival to survive let alone thrive. People only have so much money and […]

Gartley Beach, Comox Valley, Vancouver Island

  Gartley Beach, Comox Valley, Vancouver Island As you can probably tell, sunsets on Vancouver Island are amazing even if they are behind the trees like they are here at Gartley Beach. Oddly, this beach is not visited as much as one would think. Maybe it’s because there are so many amazing beaches on Vancouver Island. But Gartley is amazing. I took this shot at low tide looking back toward Vancouver Island. The Georgia Strait is behind me. When the tide […]

Chile Travel Photography

Chile Travel Photography — From the Atacama Desert to Torres del Paine in Patagonia. Chile is a long, thin country that borders Peru and Bolivia in the north and Argentina in the south. The Andes is one of its most prominent features running the full length of the country from north to south. Its long north-south axis makes for a diverse landscape.

Slash’s New Acoustic Guitar—Comox Valley Commercial Photographer

Slash’s New Acoustic Guitar—Comox Valley Commercial Photographer As a commercial photographer, sometimes I get to photograph the most amazing objects, oftentimes amazing works of art. Reuben Forsland of Joi Guitars just completed a stunning acoustic masterpiece for the “Grammy winning, rock and roll hall-of-famer, SLASH, of Guns N’ Roses and Velvet Revolver fame”. I think you will understand why Slash chose Reuben to build his guitar. In this 16-image series of “the guitar”, Ive tried to capture the allure of […]

Burning Man 2011 Photography

Burning Man 2011

Burning Man 2011 It was my first Burn and as such, I was affectionately known as a Virgin Burner. Click here to the view the gallery. I had heard about this festival for years and was always curious. Simply put, it transcended everything that I had imagined it would be. This festival is the poster-child of the Counter Culture Revolution. On the Black Rock Desert, commonly referred to as The Playa, the world’s largest participatory festival unfolds with a density […]

Antarctica Travel Photography

Antarctica Photos

Antarctica Check out the gallery here.  Antarctica is the highest, driest, coldest, windiest continent we’ve got. And it’s beautiful. Of all the amazing places I’ve explored, Antarctica is at the top of the list. There’s something about those polar regions; the air is rarefied and the light is spectacular bordering on surreal. Surrounded by the Southern Ocean it is the fifth largest continent, nearly twice the size of Australia and 98 % of it is covered by ice. And due to […]

Inkspired Tattoo Magazine Feature (scroll down to read post)

A Feature in the Tattoo Magazine, InkSpired The interview in the tattoo publication, InkSpired Magazine about some of my world photography and in particular some of the body modification imagery that I have shot over the years is in their latest edition. You can read the specific article on my work here. One of the things that I like about InkSpired Magazine is that they are doing stories outside the main “storyline” of tattoos. In this particular piece, they’re featuring my body modification […]
