Ria Ambrose – Comox Valley Portrait Photographer

The eyes of Ria. Ria’s eyes are compelling. I love the power of her stare and the frame of colour that envelopes her face. I love the way her hair curls to meet her lips. Beautiful. Bye for now. Gordon

K1 Race, Mount Washington – Vancouver Island Sports Photographer

Speed and control as she rips down the mountain. I love high-speed photography. It’s fun to stop the world and study it. Shot at over 1/4000 th of a second, we step into the matrix.

Chanti – Comox Valley Portrait Photographer

The lovely Chanti. Portraiture. I love it in all its forms. From the head-shot to the candid art-shot, the human face is a miracle in diversity and beauty.

If you’re keen to get your […]

And that is definitely what this project has captured – humbly put, a moment of each person. I love photographing people. Each portrait session is unique and many leave me […]
