Using Drones for Dramatic Nature Photos / Popphoto Article

Jon Cornforth of Popphoto.com (Popular Photograph Magazine) wrote an article recently on using drones for nature photos.  Drones are everywhere these days.  They are the newest gadget, fad, trend or whatever you want to call it; and it’s here to stay.  It’s just a matter of time until someone uses a drone for wedding photography.

Viva Cuba

Aiofe and I finally went on our honeymoon after getting married in Tofino last year.  We decided on Cuba because we wanted to experience the country before it became too commercial.  The timing was perfect because on December 17th, 2014 the United States announced it would normalize relations with Cuba.  After the Cuban Revolution in […]

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 […]

On our way back from Missoula we spent another trip out in Glacier National Park.  When I’m surrounded by nature I feel alive.  I spent my 35th birthday photographing Glacier National Park, hiking in the woods, sleeping in a tent, making breakfast  from a propane stove and spending time with my beautiful wife and soul […]

May Desktop Wallpaper / Dance to the Morning Light

Before a photo shoot I like to scope out my location.  This particular shoot I was scouting for was to have a mountainous background for a car in the foreground.  This particular day quite cloudy.  It was so cloudy in fact that I couldn’t even see any of the mountains.  What do you do when […]

I’ve been here a few times before but I’ve never had any luck until now. […]
