I have had an ever increasing interest in bugs and creatures. I would like to say that it started with my bees, but it actually started with Bugner. He is an old friend that I have managed to save for a surprising long time. He just has so much personality I could not let him go, also I think that he is smiling.

As I have been approaching a long running project, I have been revisting my archives for what I feel has been successful and what has not. Reworking failures is where I learn the most. A successful shoot is just as much visualization as it is experience. Without the fore site and knowledge nothing works out. By examining my history it has really helped me to find what I believe to be emotive success.

This is from a shoot for a local restaurant. The Chef prepared a few dishes, he styled them and I shot them. This ran in the local papers, as well as mailers and the fabulous internet. On a side note it is so nice being able to see again. Not having to wear blurry glasses everyday really makes a big difference.

After a long awaited break from work I am feeling energized and creative again. I have a heavy shot list for the next couple of days and am super excited about it. This is one of those nights spent thinking, learning and translating my vision into reality. It is something that I think all artists struggle with from time to time.

Every time I feel uninspired, I shoot a plant or flower. It seems like their is an endless way to frame them, to manipulate them to show expression, to recharge my creative juices. Everyone seems to have that fall back item that can help to rebuild that creative ego. Mine happens to be flowers.

I am always thinking about simplifying things. I trying to think outside the box. I kept the lighting really simple and allowed the Pom to stand out. The texture is the intrigue, photographs that enthrall me always have a sense of depth and texture. I tried to show how different it truly is.

The snow falling last night and the really unique twilight was quite bizarre. I love the big perfectly shaped snow flakes. I saw a couple of moments that I really liked. I will have a couple of more studio based shots for monday. Oddly enough it was a strangely satisfying evening.

The long weekend has set back my time schedule a little too much so after a day of heavy guilt here is my new post.
As frost and snow approaches us yet again, I thought that I would refer back a few months to when frost was heavy and appropriate. Now the snow is unwanted and detested.

Now that I am finally settled in my new place I will start posting new work again soon. Today is a shot of the Celgar lumber mill in Castlegar. It is the life blood of the town, with out such a plant the town would be gone. It is really interesting that an entire region lives and dies by development of a single employer. At night I found it to be quite beautiful, in the day a massive eye sore.

I have been experimenting with different articles of clothing and wondering about different ways to show them. The tie is such a basic staple of mens clothing that I wanted display it out of the norm. I have been using many different types of backgrounds and ties, this is something that I have been shooting for a couple of months now.

I have promised myself that I will not let this happen. Especially since I am pretty new to this. I am enthralled with swimming pools and any other body of water that is lit at night. This is one from last fall before they closed up shop for the winter. Soon it will be time yet again for this year.

I have been working with this mannequin for a couple of weeks now. He is a good subject, not a lot of complaints but not a lot of personality, but the best part is that we are the same size of clothes, giving me many options to dress him. I absolutely loved the light within the dining room and thought it would provide what I was looking for.

I have finally organized myself with a lot of help from my friends and I will be up loading new photos on a constant basis. Minimum 5 days a week. Mostly new work, but once in awhile some historical work of mine that I feel good with.
This first photo was shot last week, before my move. I have been working on a series of these with my lovely mannequin bust. Any feed back is greatly appreciated.
