West Van Longboarder

Up in West Vancouver’s British Properties is a long boarder’s paradise. Long steep twisty hills and not too much traffic.

Long Exposure

Have been taking a course on Long Exposure taught by Sharon Tenebaum.  The premise is to teach the basics of fine art long exposure image making along with the post processing skills to enhance the snaps.  Here are some of the early snaps taken during the course.

Shanghai, China

Shanghai was not what I expected. This vibrant metropolis of over 25 million people has a lot to offer and an interesting history. This was the first major mainland China city I’ve visited and unlike Hong Kong has more room to spread. That meant wider boulevards more green space and an amazing array of architecture. Here are the snaps from a brief visit.

IPA Awards for Longboard Racing Image

I was pleased to receive two International Photography Awards for Corner Racer 3.

Britannia Classic 2015 (8 of 14)

Juan de Fuca

In September travelled to Juan de Fuca Provincial Park and in particular Sombrio Beach. Arrived in time to watch surfers and kite-surfers play in the surf late in the day. The next day was out on the water off Victoria BC in the straight of Juan de Fuca for an early morning shoot.

Port Hardy, BC

Was up at the northern tip of Vancouver Island visiting Port Hardy for work. Lovely spot to explore some of the unique coastal landscapes. Here a a few snaps.
