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. I love working with people to find an image that represents them well. My hope is that when the people who know Chanti see this picture, they’ll say, “That’s the woman I know.” If I can accomplish that, then I feel I’ve done my job properly. If you’re keen to get your […]

Ashlynn Somers – Comox Valley Portrait Photographer

While the tattoos are an integral part of the project, each individual and their story is really what it’s all about. 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 […]

I once heard him described as a young Dave Mathews. Yes, he’s that compelling. You can check out his music here and his Facebook page here. His album is for sale at Freakin Coffeeshop in Tin Town.

A Summer of Weddings, Byron & Alana Green — Comox Valley Photographer

If you’d like to find out more about our wedding packages, we’d love to hear […]
