I recently made a trip to my home island of Newfoundland. Just north of where I grew up is Gros Morne National Park. It is a spectacular place, and a landscape photographer’s dream! It’s such a diverse ecosystem, 5 days was not enough to really capture what I wanted. The key to successfully photographing this amazing part of the world is patience. You have to camp out, wait for the weather to clear and for the right light. These are two of my favourite shots from the few wonderful days I spent photographing Gros Morne.
Mudder came out from the East Coast for my graduation and during her visit we went to check out Butchart Gardens in Saanichton, BC. This place is spectacular if you like gardens…amazing! I worked around the corner from the gardens for over 2 years and never went to check it out! Sad I know! This was my first visit during the summer and I’m so happy I got to share it with my mom 🙂
All of these were taken on a beautiful spring day at Goldstream Provincial Park just outside Victoria, BC. Being an east coaster I’m used to tiny gnarled black spruce so the towering presence of the Western Red Cedar are totally amazing to me. It makes me feel like I’m a miniature human even though I’m 6 feet tall 🙂
I had the idea of doing a Medusa shoot with my buddy and scheduling just wouldn’t allow it yet…so in place of that I came up with this! I’m pleased with the results…Jamie is a fabulous model! She rocked it!
This super hero doesn’t have a name…yet!
