Wisps of fog linger in the air, creating a natural light diffuser that takes much of the color out of the landscape and leaves behind an eerie and ethereal feel.  Figures come and go in the mist, playing tricks with your eyes, leaving you wondering if you really saw that shadow move or if it’s […]

We were recently commissioned to do a full Commercial Photography Session with the group at the Duncan Wellness Centre in our hometown of Duncan, BC, Canada.  It was a wonderful session that we enjoyed working on, and through the process we got to know the terrific people who operate the centre and learn about their […]

Succulent hamburgers, golden hand-cut fries, creamy dahl and sweet basmati rice, fragrant curries, fluffy pakoras, savoury samosas, and decadent chocolate cheesecake. You might think I’m describing a pricey, five-star restaurant that involves knowing the maître d’ just to get past the door, but the only similarity would be that the food does indeed deserve those […]

Some items we have a chance to photograph have a life of their own.  The stories of those who once owned them are forever imprinted in their fabric, and if you listen closely you can learn a little of the person and the times they came from.  In today’s post we are continuing a new […]
