We’d like to introduce you to the newest member of the Toad Hollow Photography team today, “Bruce”.  Who’s Bruce, you may very well ask?  Bruce is a DJI Phantom 3 Professional drone we recently acquired, giving us the ability to capture shots from a fresh, new perspective!  None of this would be possible without a […]

I really just can’t help it, I find rust to be visually delicious.  It’s got texture, it’s got character, it’s got years of stories hidden under that rich patina, stories that often remain secret and locked away forever.  When researching our trips up to Telegraph Cove at the northern end of Vancouver Island, it was […]

It’s not often at all that we come across a car that I’ve never heard of or seen before.  Every once in awhile, however, it does happen.  Such is the case with our encounter of a 1916 Franklin car we found one hot summers day as we were out enjoying the weather and landscapes of […]

Ah, the smell of the ocean breezes, the sounds of lapping waves against the shores as gulls cry in the distance…  sights and sounds that bring an instant sense of tranquility and peace to all.  It’s truly hard to beat the feeling you get while visiting the shore and experiencing all the ambience it has […]

Well, as with most great things in life, adventures always start with a curious drive to see or learn something new.  We are no different, of course, and as opportunities and new techniques come to light we tend to chase them.  In today’s post we are going to discuss a new light painting technique we […]

When you think of the words “old” and “charm” do you think of Vancouver Island?  Not many people do, to be honest.  We’re located on the very westerly coast of Canada, with the next stop from here being basically Russia and China off our shores.  The west coast of Canada has only been colonized for […]
