Meet Nigel, Joe, and Tristan!

We are in the midst of getting our summer camp guide put together at work and discovered that we needed some shots of a few coaching staff to include in the publication. Given how little time we had I quickly volunteered to meet with the coaches to take some shots. Nigel is our soccer camps coordinator and this will be his second year in the role. I’m very excited to be working with him again! Joe and Tristan are the coaches for our strength and conditioning teams here at UBC, and are running brand new camps for summer 2016. Nonetheless, here are a few pics from my quick photoshoot with Nigel, Joe, and Tristan!

Tower Beach

I’ve heard that Tower Beach at UBC is a nice, quiet spot to check out, but I had no idea just how beautiful it would be! We weren’t really dressed appropriately given the weather, and definitely didn’t have the right shoes on to be trekking through the trails and along the slippery rocky beach, but it was worth it! In case you aren’t sure where to locate Tower Beach, check out the map below.

 

Free Photoshoot

Hey Vancouver! As I am slowly getting things up and running with my website I am looking for friends, family, or acquaintances to do a photoshoot with. This will merely give me the opportunity to fine-tune my skills a little further before I start booking official appointments. If you are interested send me an email and we can hopefully find a time that works (usually on weekends)!

Whistler Wonderland

With clear skies in the forecast yesterday was the perfect day for a road trip to Whistler. We hopped in the car, escaped the fog, and arrived just in time for the gondola to be CLOSED for tourists… oh well! We made the most out of the situation and went on a small hike by the creek instead! It truly felt like we were in a “winter wonderland” – there was so much snow and we both needed an escape from the city. It was particularly beautiful as the sun went down and the peeks of each mountain glistened with gold; but I was too busy having a beer to capture that with my camera! Nonetheless, we have already planned our next trip back to ski and to participate in “Winter Pride!”

Freezing Fog

For some reason I woke up VERY early this morning and couldn’t fall back asleep – so I decided to make the most of it and head out on a little early morning photo adventure. Although my initial plan was to capture the sunrise from Jericho Beach, I quickly realized that there wouldn’t be any sunrise today given the thick fog! But, that was okay! Apart from the below-zero temperature I thoroughly enjoying my walk around Jericho Beach and managed to capture some of the “Freezing Fog” that was rolling through.

 

Purple and Pink Skies

As I was driving down Cambie street, and after spending the day shopping for my belated Christmas celebrations, I simply had to go check out the sunset. The sky was radiant with pink and purple, and I had my camera in the back seat! I wracked my brain to think of a vantage point to capture the city and sky, but couldn’t think of anything so decided to pull over at 12th and Yukon to snap a picture. After a few minutes I thought I would go down to Granville Island but on my way came across the most amazing view and yet again had to stop to capture what I saw! Take a look and let me know what you think!

PS – I’ve included the location below of where I captured the second picture from.
