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 […]

In this particular piece, they’re featuring my body modification […]
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 […]
