Ralph Forsyth for Whistler Council 2018

I had the pleasure of meeting with Ralph Forsyth in Whistler recently to update his headshot for his upcoming bid for Councillor of the Whistler municipality.  I don’t know of anyone more enthusiastic, passionate and energetic than Ralph.  He seems truly to care about the resort and the people who call Whistler home. They say […]

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 […]

Photos of 5 week old baby Douglas

Babies change so quickly, it’s always good to have some professional photographs taken when they are newborn.  This little boy was just 5 weeks old and both he and his parents were still getting used to each other.   Be prepared for a long shoot, though, babies don’t pose quite so easily as adults or even […]

My favourite is the one where he’s not smiling […]

Family portraits at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler

This photo shoot was my client’s surprise birthday gift to her aunt.   They were having a lady’s weekend at the lovely Fairmont Chateau Whistler.  One of my favourite locations for photographs indoors and out and today the fall colours were in their splendor after rain in the morning.

‘Civilized’ Stagette in Whistler, July 21 2012

This shoot was organized by the sister of the bride-to-be and she first e-mailed me to say it would be a ‘civilized stagette’, which seemed like a misnomer to me.  As it turned out, she was right, in that all the ladies wore lovely black cocktail dresses and the bride to be wore white.  They […]
