Away from home for a few days. I miss the mountains of BC for sure, but this kind sight sure ain’t bad either… Pretty relaxing.

In Erquy, small town somewhere in Brittany, France.

View from the Vancouver Lions…

I didn’t use a super wide angle for that shot. The mountain is actually shaped that way.

What a sight…

If you are around Vancouver and you feel like hiking 16km in the rocks, roots and trees, I strongly recommend it…

Growing up, I wasn’t a big camping fanatic.

Then, I moved to Canada and discovered that camping could be done in places like Birkenhead lake.

I now officially dig camping… ;o)

A few weeks ago, I got commissioned by the BC Government’s Correction Department to shoot the Peace Officers Memorial Service in Stanley Park.

This event, that takes place every year on the last Sunday of September, brings together representatives of BC’s finest officers. From correctional officers to police, and RCMP.

I gotta admit that, having hundreds of officers marching around in uniforms, with drums, bagpipes, horses, flags and all, gave me patriotic goose bumps.

Anyway, part of my job was to take nice portraits of the correction officers present that day, against a white backdrop. Pretty straight forward.

But the other part was to follow them around the park and photograph them while marching. And of course, it doesn’t say anywhere in the protocol that the officers have to stop for me to shoot a nice group photo (go figure), so I had to be quick on my feet.

So when they started marching, after looking around quickly, I realized that I had a very (and I mean VERY) short window of opportunity where my group was gonna walk on a tiny bridge, with the whole city in the back. And the kicker… the tiny bridge had a ledge that I could climb to shoot from higher and catch them all nicely.

This all took place in about 15 seconds, so if you were there that day and saw a dude run with a pelican case, throw it on the ground, climb and shoot while trying not to do a face plant, well, that was me…

I could only get 3 shots before they were out of frame and I had to run ahead of them again. This is one of them.

Good times, I tell you… Good times.

Yesterday I was on a boat…

Everybody seems to be freaking out in BC because summer appears to be over. As you can see by the clouds and the sky here.

I strongly disagree and think we’ll be able to play Frisbee shirtless for the next 3 weeks.  But it doesn’t change the fact that it’s September 22nd and it’s now Fall.

Happy Fall everyone!!!

Sometimes, when clients hire me, this happens…

This is one of the many reasons why I love my job and my clients.

I shot this on Harrison Lake a few weeks ago.

More about this shoot soon…

As I took some time off last week, I have been away from my computer.

It felt good to take a break and enjoy my family and friends without thinking about work at all. But it also feels good to be back and share some of my new stuff with you all.

Here is a photo I took Saturday morning, at 5.15 am while drinking coffee on a wooden dock on the gorgeous Harrison Lake…

My family and I spent the last 3 days off the grid (literally) and got to really appreciate how amazingly beautiful British Columbia is.

More new projects, portraits, videos and photos very soon…

Ever wondered how it feels like to do 90 Km/h on water?!

I never did, but I actually figured it out the hard way.

A couple of years ago, I was working on a project here in Vancouver, filming boats between Jericho, English Bay and the Vancouver Harbor.

The easiest way to film some of the boats was to ride on one of the rescue zodiacs during the patrol.

And this is what happens when a boat capsizes at the other end of the bay and no one knows if the skipper has surfaced yet.

The life guard, yells: “hang on to something!!!” and then floors it with no other warning. Those who know me are very much aware that I don’t miss an opportunity to film or photograph, so I grabbed the boat with one hand and filmed with the other.

This is by far one of the most brutal experiences I have had to go through while shooting. Feeling that you are going to fly off the boat anytime.(This footage has not been sped up, it’s the actual speed)

Everything is fine until you pass the Lion’s Gate Bridge and then the boat starts flying…

Good thing Pelican cases are made for this type of adventures.

I spent the last couple of days on location for a client in Deroche, BC. (more about that very soon.)

And yesterday, before heading back to Vancouver I stopped for a few minutes to smell the roses…

Again, it was a nice “I could get used to this…” kind of moment.

What do you do when you ran 10km from home, your head and legs hurt and you still have 10km to go…?

You snap a photo and you keep running.
