Lighthouse Park Wedding Portrait Session (Behind The Scenes) for Yinger Fotokrafie

Lighthouse Park Wedding Portrait Session (Behind The Scenes) for Yinger Fotokrafie

A while ago, I had the opportunity to work with Yinger at Yinger Fotokrafie as a secondary shooter and also a Behind The Scenes photographer. This photoshoot was entirely orchestrated by Yinger but I was able to capture and document some of the going-ons behind the scenes that made the photoshoot amazing for this couple. Huge thank to Yinger Forokrafie for having me on! All of the photographs here (I believe) were shot on beautiful 35mm film, my favorite photographic medium…

A Documentary Photosession for Tallie the Cat and Her Owners

A Documentary Photosession for Tallie the Cat and Her Owners

…A prior conversation with Elizabeth gave me the story of Tallie. While initially a dog person, Elizabeth fell in love with Tallie and soon became a cat person (cats tend to do that to us... hehe). I can't recall the reason why Tallie was in the shelter but that's where Elizabeth found her. Tallie was a mother of some kittens at the shelter but as the kittens were soon adopted off, Tallie was left all alone. Elizabeth wanted to adopt a cat that would have a tough time finding a home and found Tallie at the shelter, who approached Elizabeth and they instantly bonded. I found Tallie to be a shy cat but after a few moments of walking in and around the place, Tallie got used to the commotion in her home that was me and my various clattering cameras.

Danielle and Stephen: 5 Years Of Marriage

Danielle and Stephen: 5 Years Of Marriage

Alongside with a documentary photosession in their home, Danielle and Stephen allowed me and my wife to photograph them at the lovely Whytecliff Park. On the day of the photoshoot, I recall looking out the window and seeing it rain slightly, only to be followed later by slight down-pour, followed by letting up with a bit of sun, followed by another down-pour (this IS Vancouver we're talking about)! However, thank God it all worked out as the rain stopped JUST as I was pulling out my cameras and Danielle and Stephen were getting out of the car.

When It's Cold, I Go Outside - Part 1

When It's Cold, I Go Outside - Part 1

I like to spend my time walking. Outside. Even when it's cold. 

The January before last (that is, January 2014) proved to be an especially cold January. Brisk winter air was sharp on the skin but it was still strangely sunny. I took this opportunity to take some photos and, on this rainy February day in 2016, I thought I'd share a few.

We Showed Them Prints

We Showed Them Prints

It was the wonder in their eyes and the semi-astonished looks in their faces. We laid out the prints on a large desk and couldn't fit them all despite it being a large desk. There were many 4x6 prints and Stephen and Danielle (as well as my wife and I) were looking over them. Presenting the images in this way really created a new and old experience for us all. It was real. It was tangible. It was the true life of a photograph: Print.
