Barking mad – a day out with Drummer

Barking mad – a day out with Drummer

The weather this winter in Whistler has been way too warm and generally pouring with rain when it should have been snowing.  I decided to have a day out and headed over to D’arcy, 80kms or so North.  It’s a great drive and a fun way to test my new car.  Once there, we pottered […]

Milan 2013

Bit of a late blog post about mine and Rob’s wet weekend in Milan.  We were staying in Switzerland for the winter and decided to take advantage of the small scale of Europe (compared to Canada):  we went to Milan for the weekend.  I felt I had to buy a new coat and handbag because […]

People often ask me what I was doing in last winter in Switzerland.  Apart from skiing, I was working for a ski school blogging and taking photos for their web site.  I also did a shoot for Tourism Nendaz and took photos of a high end luxury chalet.  Here are some of the photos:   […]

The Great Cheakamus River Extreme Kayak Race

Today I went to take a look at The Great Cheakamus River Extreme Kayak Race.  I’ve never watched a kayak race before and it was certainly very fun.  At this time of year the river is running quite high after some warm weather and snow melt but it didn’t seem to phase the men and […]

Commercial photography for Tourism Nendaz

I was very excited to be offered an assignment for Tourism Nendaz in Switzerland this winter.  They needed photos of all of the ski itineraries (off piste, controlled tour routes) in the 4 Valleys ski region including Verbier.  They wanted to capture the sheer size of the mountains and how it might feel to ‘drop […]

The faces of Istanbul

Posted by in Portraits

Today I decided to focus on the people and atmosphere of Istanbul.  It’s a city of some 13 million people and it certain does feel like it!  There are big streets crammed with every type of vehicle and tiny streets crammed with every imaginable shop.  Many of the places certainly feel like tourist traps with […]
