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 […]

Ethiopia Tribal Body Modification

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 […]

Atmosphere Festival in Cumberland, 2014

Talk about nailing a festival right out of the blocks. Atmosphere 2014—the music was brilliant, the weather was hot, the vibe was chill, the scene was conscious… Atmosphere is a hit mix of electronic and live music, performing arts, awesome healthy food, mass participation events such as The Church of Reggae Yoga (awesome) and chill, reflective zones replete with glowing crystals. And then there was the Temple Teepee filled with sacred art, the spiritual heart of the festival located under […]

Vancouver Island Music Fest, 2014, Music Photography

Vancouver Island Music Fest 2014 I shot the Vancouver Island Music Fest, 2014 again this year and as usual, the weekend was amazing. It was hot, really hot and the bands were amazing. My personal faves were Angélique Kidjo, The Mavericks, Lowrider Band, Blind Boys of Alabama, Mokoomba…but there were so many. I just had to pick a few.  Music photography at a big event is kind of like fast-action sports photography mixed with portraiture…it’s a fun blend with your subject […]

You can check out the various North Coast Trail itineraries here. There’s also some good stuff here. And if you want a really cool virtual tour of the North Coast Trail and the Cape Scott […]

Sports Photography, Winter

Winter Sports Photography Just before winter melts into spring, I thought it was time to have one last winter blast by publishing some of my winter sports photography in a new gallery. I love winter sports photography because it gets me outside, I get awesome exercise as I race around to get the shots and I get to spend time with people who are deeply passionate about their sport. There’s nothing like being around people who are at the height of […]

Sports Photography

New Sports Photography Gallery

Sports Photography Gallery  ne of my faves to shoot, sports photography is almost as exhilarating as the ‘game’ itself. As a sports photographer you get to go to the happening locations, oftentimes with special access to the sites or venues, and you often have to get very close, sometimes uncomfortably so, as a past concussion from a hit from a snowboarder amply demonstrated to me. There’s a fine line between close and too close. Three months is a long time […]

A dhow off the coast of Zanzibar, Tanzania

Travel Photography Gallery is Published

Travel Photography The Travel Photography Gallery is up on the site and ready for viewing. I thought I would start with about 20 images; there are heaps more to come.  After so many years of shooting and traveling, it’s been quite a serious job to look through so many images. But the gallery is finally here. Hooray. I’ve lugged cameras and equipment all over the planet, up and down mountains and volcanoes, through deserts, rainforests and swamps and in the […]

Inside of a temple in Angkor Wat

Angkor Wat, Cambodia, Travel Photography

Angkor Wat, Travel Photography Last year, on a trip to South and Southeast Asia, I finally had the opportunity to travel to and photograph the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Angkor Wat, the largest religious complex ever built. Built during the Khmer Empire between the 9th and the 15th centuries, it started as a Hindu religious site and eventually morphed into a Buddhist one. Actually, Angkor Wat is just one of the temples at the complex but we have come […]
