It’s been a very long time since I have posted on here. A lot has happened in that time, but I won’t get into that now. However what I would like to announce is that I have my very first Solo Show.
A portrait series documenting the remnants of the hard working lands of the Alberta and Saskatchewan prairies. This vast landscape echoes the loneliness that this harsh environment can be, as these structures are slowly being swallowed by the very land that gave them life.
I am really excited and terrified about the whole thing. It is for 6 months at Gravity Espresso and Wine Bar in the neighbourhood of Inglewood in Calgary.
909 10 St SE Calgary, Ab
The opening reception is on Wednesday November 8th 2017 from 6-8pm. If you live in Calgary, or happen to be in Calgary, Please drop by and check it out. If you cannot make it for for the opening no problem, my work will be up on the walls until April 2018.
I have been photographing the abandoned within the vast landscape of the albertan prairie, covering thousands of kilometres along lonely gravel roads for close to 10 years. It is the body of work I have the most passion for and I recently updated the photographs in my Abandoned Alberta series.
However what I am really excited about is to share that my Abandoned Alberta series has been featured in the online magazine Edge of Humanity

It's been one hell of a start to my year, as a result it's been awhile since I've updated anything on here. Actually even touching my camera at all. I did shoot a local Motorsport event in March (Cochrane Winter Rally) which I am still working on my photos from. As well as Rally test day in Kananaskis in May. Again, photos I am still working on. It's been a real struggle to find the motivation to pick up my camera and go. Especially since photography is in a way something I need. Not something I do.
Yesterday was a bit of a treat or an oasis of sorts. A friend of mine was passing through on his way east for a shooting project and invited me to join him shooting for his day in the albertan prairie. It was really nice to pick up my camera again. I am hoping this may be the little push I need to go. Here is a quick sample of what I may have made yesterday. It's a JPEG wifi transfer from my camera to my phone and a quick edit in snapseed (available for both iOS and android for free)
If you haven't heard of Kevin Boyle or haven't seen his work you should really go take a look. His work is outstanding.
It was really nice to end the week and pretty much the year, on a high note. Stark Magazine included one of my newest photos in their online stream.
It's one I made in one of the handful of ghost towns I visited in southern Saskatchewan over the summer. I have a few more coming from that trip soon.
