Thinking Differently

Thinking Differently For some time now I’ve been struggling with my own posts on social media. Asking myself, what motivates me to post what I post and how are these posts being received. I enjoy the interactions with all my friends on these platforms, but social media is not about interactions with friends, it’s about […]

Tips for Night Photography

Tips for Night Photography It can be tricky taking photographs at night. Photography is all about chasing light. At night time our opportunities are limited by the very nature of the darkness. However, together with the challenges come terrific creative opportunities. With tonight’s Illuminate Yaletown, there is even a photographic competition. I’ll be out helping […]

Clouds make gorgeous skittered patterns across an immense blue sky.  The sun has not been up long and the muted colours are […]


Resilience Brad Marsden calls – I’d met him a few weeks back when he presented a gut-wrenching and powerful workshop about residential schools. Not something I was particularly excited about attending, I knew it would be difficult to hear, but I decided it was something I wanted to do. The workshop was being put on by […]

Rufous Hummingbirds – Smithers BC

Rufous Humming Birds in Smithers BC   My good friends Gladys and Shawn have an amazing ‘back yard’, near Smithers. Some of you may recall the standing bear image I captured earlier this summer.
