Salmon Spawning

November 28, 2009

Well it’s that time of year again. The salmon run is almost over here at Goldstream park in Victoria, Every year I try and make it up and photograph the fish. Mainly the dead one’s I am after. They are more intriguing to photograph. Most people find this quite gruesome but it makes for a great subject, especially the macro shot’s of their rotting heads. So here are  a few images from this years Salmon run.

Mark Mawson

This winter I’ll be hitting up the ski slopes with camera in hand after a long hiatus from photographing skiing.  I will be working with Mark Mawson, A professional skier sponsored by Salomon sports. He has just received his gear so we will be heading out in the next few weeks to do some urban ski shots. But for now some lifestyle shots taken two weeks ago in Naniamo.

I was out  one day driving around and came across this cool broken down station wagon in the woods. I just had to photograph it.

Fall Colors

November 1, 2009

Fall is one of my most favourite times to get out in the season. Especially on the west coast with the large yellowish leaves falling and the lush green moss. Makes for some beautiful nature photos. It’s also that time of the year when the salmon start spawning at Gold stream provincial park. I went up today but not much action with the fish yet. I will be going back in a few weeks when the river fills up with more salmon. For now I have some images from two weeks ago. I did a day trip up to the Cowichan valley to go pick mushrooms but had no luck in finding any so the camera came out instead. Here are a few  shots. All images may be purchased as fine art prints.
