A chance of rain and rainbows at North Arm Farms today folks.

Slightly overcast, with Rosa and Davin’s Korean and Canadian wedding scheduled to start just after two.

There are vows in store, tears, Sigur Ros ambience, Korean soju, and a downpour worthy of a hollywood romance film. Except this won’t be hollywood, this will be Pemberton Canada and real life, and therefore so much better than any movie you could dream of.

EDIT////  Well, the grant was released and we weren’t in the lucky bunch of winners. Still planning on moving forward in the new year.

 

Internet friends, family, strangers, nature lovers, hikers, photographers, conservationists, and anyone else who knows someone who I may know!!!

STORYHIVE is giving away $10,000 to 30 female directors to make their short films into a reality. I’ve been working behind the scenes with my good friend Dwight on a pitch and the preliminary research to put together a short documentary on The History of Trail Building on Vancouver Island and I couldn’t be more excited to share it today.

We’ve gotten through the first round, of submissions and now we need all the votes we can get in the next four days. (You can vote once a day, and though I hate to be the one to ask for votes but, I really believe in what we are creating, and we are cautiously optimistic that we may actually have a chance!)

Please have a look at the pitch video (which I must thank Thanushi and Aaron for being an extra set of hands while we filmed it.) and get behind the project with a vote or two. –> http://www.storyhive.com/project/show/id/1718

 

will to roam - short film

    Two blog posts in one week?! I can’t believe it either. It has been far too long internet friends, I’ve missed you and we have a lot to catch up on.

    So much to catch up on actually that they are giving my a microphone at ARC 

    What even is ARC you ask? A photo conference held in my base of Vancouver, that I truly can’t wait for.

    I’m stoked, slightly nervous, and thinking it is all too surreal to share the stage with the likes of Dallas and Sabrina Kolotyo, Brittany Esther Staddon, João Guedes, Blake Loates ,Reggie Campbell, James Moes, Ross Harvey, Nessa K, Kelly Tunney, The Manchicks, Gabe McClinktock, Ryan Muirhead, David Guenther, Brian Morrow, Dan Cristea and Jon Duenas. Mega talented photographers. And I can’t wait until we are all in Vancouver.

    Tickets are on sale and going fast – I’ve marked Xs all over my calendar, and I’m pretty excited to talk about the travel/wedding photo combo that is my life.

    See you in Vancouver! >> http://bit.ly/BIGideasARC

      They say everything is bigger in Texas, and so Catherine and Patricio; Texas locals, escaped a large wedding in favour of a little celebration on an island in the Pacific.

      The library room in the Empress Hotel set the scene, and a stellar jazz trio set the mood while Catherine and Patricio slow danced into the evening with their families.

      The sun was shining, and the southern charm was working. We joked they were in the Canadian Tropics; the perfect place to elope.

      And of course the biggest thank you to the most wonderful team of Victoria vendors for making the day so special.

        taylor roades flying over british columbia

        I haven’t been to space but I did read Chris Hadfield ‘s book on my flight yesterday; as close to space as I’ll probably ever get. It made me proud to be Canadian, and reminded me how lucky I was to photograph him in concert in February. Afterward the show I asked him about the recent proof of gravitational waves, and my nerding for the day was complete. His book is just as approachable as him, a glimpse into life above our planet, and completely inspiring. I fully recommend it.
