Third Dawn / New Print Release

It has been quite some time since I’ve released a new print.  Throughout this time I have been actively shooting for the Slice of Life series; I just haven’t had time to share them.  Third Dawn was shot New Year’s Day, 2015.  The New Dawn series is a set of images that I’ve captured during […]

Riveting Trash-Based Photographs With Environmental Significance / My Modern Met Article

My Modern Met has featured Alejandro Durán’s Washed Up series.  The series depicts Durán’s take on environmental issues that are currently in Sian Ka’an, Mexico’s largest federally-protected reserve.   Durán explains, “The resulting photo series depicts a new form of colonization by consumerism, where even undeveloped land is not safe from the far-reaching impact of […]


Setting Sails / New Print Release

The newest release in my Slice of Life series is entitled Setting Sails.  I created this image while Aiofe and I were on our honeymoon in Cuba last year.  I noticed the wildly vibrant colours of the wind sails against the backdrop of the sky.  To me, this image is an abstract representation of moving on […]

Honoured Alongside Art Wolfe

December Desktop Wallpaper / Lake O’Hara Sunrise

Instead of the cliché winter scene, for December I thought I would give you a wallpaper that can remind you of what’s in store a few months from now.  A cliché spring scene!  This year my hometown of Calgary got hit with the worst flooding in its history.  Now during the winter months we have […]

October was quite the hectic month.  I did a talk for the Foothills Camera Club about inspiration.  I shot images at the Calgary Zoo to aid in the post-flood efforts (thanks to Vistek for providing the equipment).  I shot out at Emerald Lake in Yoho National park with my Dad.  And November is looking like it’s […]

October Desktop Wallpaper / Here Comes the Sun

On our trip to Missoula last month Aiofe and I stopped in Glacier National Park twice.  On our first stay there we arrived at the St. Mary’s entrance pretty late and so we weren’t able to get a campsite.  Sleeping in the car isn’t so bad unless you can’t recline your seats due to your car […]


September Desktop Wallpaper / Stand by Me

My good friend Dave and I headed out to the Crowsnest Pass area about a month ago and I just finally got a chance to review the images.  Dave is a great night photographer and often has great ideas for me.  For instance, I left my cable release at home.  A good cable release / […]

What Constitutes Original Art? / Artist Discrimination

The Vulgar Photographer Chase Jarvis wrote a very informative blog post in December of 2012 entitled “the Vulgar Photographer – Trespasser on the Sacred Ground of Fine Art”.  Read the article and you’ll get my point when it comes to what people consider fine art.  I consider my photographs from the JCFA collection fine art.
