Between The Eyes-We Have Served Thee Well

There is a reason I’m behind the camera…I hate being in front of it. But Seb Kemp told me I didn’t have a choice and I was to be included in his series “Between The Eyes” which is in Seb’s words is “…an ongoing series of short videos that aims to explore and communicate some of the fascinating stories behind photographers and their craft.”

The first part in the series, #dailywalk, looking at the work of Jordan Manley during his recovery from a serious concussion, is perhaps one of the most beautiful short films I have ever seen and I encourage you to take a look. Seb has got the art of story telling on lockdown and, it was an honour to be a part of the series. Thank you Seb! Below is his short film looking at my latest project “We Have Served Thee Well”. Keep your eyes peeled for  part three…

BC Cup Ski Race, Telemark Ski Club, Kelowna, B.C.

“It’s fast snow today” … is all I heard walking through the wax and staging areas at today’s BC Cup race at Telemark Ski Club. That’s the difference between racers and photographers..it was sunny and above zero…that’s all I cared about.

Telemark Cyclocross

Riding a bicycle seems a long way off when I look out the window at piles of snow, yet spring is not far away and it got me thinking; although autumn is traditional cyclocross season and it doesn’t have the same following here as it does in Europe, a Canadian spring would offer up classic conditions: wet, cold, foggy and miserable…primo. These were shot this past autumn a couple days before the snow fell at the Telemark XC ski club in West Kelowna, B.C. . This post is going out to Geoff Waugh and Andy Waterman who are the biggest fans I know!

Memory Moto Framed Prints

First of all a big thank you to The Shop in Vancouver for planting the seed and hosting my Memory Moto show in their space over the past 6 weeks. Super fun to be amongst it with a great group of people! Also a massive thank you to everyone who came to check it out, make comments and buy framed pieces and prints! The show now moves to Lens and Shutter in Kelowna for the next month during their re-opening celebrations, so if you live in the area, it would be great to see you there.

Memory Moto – Photography Exhibition

Every now and then an opportunity comes along that is not to be missed. Brett Beadle, co-owner of The Shop in Vancouver and I had lunch together a month ago and over a Bestie bison sausage he invited me to put on an exhibition of my photography. I said yes. Then panicked. I haven’t done a show in years and had almost forgotten how. But it is coming together really well and being able to show some of my personal work makes me super excited. I have literally dreamt of it being an empty room…so please come (!!)…and bring your friends, it would be great to have you along. The beer fridge will be full, the records spun by Norm from the VisciousCycles and, if you can make it, great company amongst friends!!
