Postcards from Kananaskis.

Every year, as the calendar flips from August to September, the flow of tourism that descends upon Canada’s natural wonders retreats back to urban comfort. As the wild returns to the wilderness, so do I for my annual shoulder season adventure. This has become an annual pilgramage for me over the years. With all the wildfires that have been tearing through western Canada this year, my plans were more fluid than usual…and by fluid, I mean that backcountry plan after plan…

The power of photography.

A while back, the good folks over at local multimedia company Build Films asked me to write a piece for them about the power of photography.  This is the published article, crossposted here to my own website for your own reading:

Here at base camp, the waterfalls are running thinner than I’ve ever seen them; the glaciers above that feed them are returning to their frozen state.  The unseasonably warm sun of a few days previous has relinquished control to winter…

Winnipeg Folk Festival 2015 – A retrospective.

Ah, the Winnipeg Folk Festival: a gathering around music, art, and community that pops up in a prairie field for five days every year.  Exactly two weeks from today the 2016 festival begins with the Crooked Brothers kicking things off on the main stage.  Spending time with good friends (both old and new), discovering new music, and happening by chance upon unexpected joys…I’m looking forward to another year barefoot in these fields as an official festival photographer.…

Idea Spark App – now available!

Hi.  I’m David the software engineer.  Yes, this is the same David that normally posts here, but at the moment I am wearing my software engineer hat.  Since this website focuses on photography, I don’t don this hat much here.  It is a conscious choice to keep my web presences separated for clarity’s sake; even so, these skills constantly support each other in my day-to-day work.  When developing a website, I can build up media that is specific to my clients’ …

#ExploreMB Book – now available.

About a month ago, I was contacted by Travel Manitoba to be part of a book they were putting together to highlight truly Manitoba moments.  My contribution: Folk Fest memories!

Last week, I was pleasantly surprised to find a copy in my mailbox – the final product looks great and I’m happy to see so many friends’ work featured as well!  Flipping through it on this dreary December day, I am reminded of all the warm moments that this province has to offer.  Though I will …
