20 Eyes in my Head


The ability to be a wallflower is a skill some folks achieve naturally. Hell, in certain moments I, too, have averted my eyes, ducked into the shadows, crouched down in the crowd. Usually this occurs when some kind of shady shit is going on and the authorities have shown up looking for culprits. . Otherwise, I find I am a very participatory photographer. I engage my subject, form a relationship with them, even for the briefest of moments. That connection may show itself in the slight nod of the head, the locking of eyes, a faint grin. It may also […]

Nigel & Lynnea’s East Coast Wedding


I was invited to share a week with Nigel and Lynnea on the East Coast of Canada.  My girlfriend’s parents are from Lunenberg, so every time I’ve been over there I get very fat from eating more fish than moby dick. Luckily the surf on the east coast is quite great, so if you’re not a total lazy ass then you can usually balance it out. I knew that there would be a good mix of this during the week of the wedding, so I brought my cameras and surfboard and hopped on a plane.  Everyday was filled with surfing, […]

Highwood Pass 2016


Carnage!! Mayhem!! Bodies dropping like flies and layers of skin peeling off like cheese through the grater! Despite slower than usual conditions, we managed to somehow show complete disregard for our fragile carcasses and took every chance we had to completely fuck ourselves over.  Cluster fucks, virgin runs, australian citizenship; whatever reason you wish to use to justify this madness, it happened and was morbidly entertaining to those who managed to keep their blood on the inside of their bodies. Certainly one of the funnest and wildest jams to date, with a solid crew of alumni and rookies, babes and […]

A MARRA-GE… GET IT? IT WAS A MARRA FAMILY WEDDING!!


THIS ONE HAPPENED A LITTLE WHILE AGO. SO ITS ABOUT TIME THAT IT FINALLY GETS A POST. SOME GREAT CANMORE LOCALS GOT MARRIED, AND I GOT TO SPEND A BEAUTIFUL DAY WITH SOME FANTASTIC FOLKS.

ROCK N SPIEL!! CURLING & PUNK ROCK HAD A BABY AND IT CAME OUT LOOKIN LIKE A CHECKERED CHEROKEE


PUNK ROCK! CURLING! NAKED HOT TUBS AND PEROGIES! SUPA DUPA! CHEROKEE DID WELL WITH THIS ONE FOR SURE. I CANT BELIEVE WE LOST OUR FIRST MATCH, BUT IT WAS CLOSE.

AFTERWARDS WE WENT FOR A CLOTHING OPTIONAL HOTTUB WHERE I CANT BELIEVE I DIDNT SUBMARINE MY CAMERA?! THE COPS SHOWED UP AND TOLD US TO KEEP PARTYING AND WE […]

5TH ANNUAL FISHAPALOOZA.   BLUE RIVER BC. MAYBE  IT WAS THE 12 INCH POWER AUGER.   MAYBE IT WAS THE STEREO SYSTEM BLASTING.  MAYBE IT WAS THE SNOWMOBILES RIPPING AROUND THE ICE.   PROBABLY.   REGARDLESS, THE FISH WANTED ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH OUR LINES.  SO THE CATCHPHRASE:  “FISHAPALOOOOZA 2012!   WHERE NO ONE CATCHES SHIT!!”  CERTAINLY WAS THE STUPID TRUTH ABOUT THE MATTER.

JONAS POWERING THE HELL OUTA THE ICE AND EFFECTIVELY SCARING THE […]

Harold & Jes do the Diddy


well, they got married a this summer, so i figure its about time i made a post for my sisters wedding day. i actually suppose it wasnt really a day, more like an entire week of wedding extravaganza. by the time the wedding actually came and went, i was ready for an entire week of hibernation. it was great to have everyone travel out, and the food and the family and the friends and the booze(uugghh…) but it was a great wedding day and we had a fantastic time. these are the images from that day, from myself and my […]

GOODNEWS FISHING!!! AND $9 DORITOS!!!


WE MADE IT BACK!!! 5 DAYS FISHING IN ALASKA WITH THE SOON TO BE INFAMOUS GOODNEWS FISHING GUIDES. MY GOOD FRIEND GABE DAVIS RUNS A FLOAT PLANE OUT OF A LITTLE PLACE IN ALASKA CALLED BETHEL. BETHEL IS A PRETTY FUCKED PLACE TO BE KIND ABOUT IT. THE WHOLE TOWN IS BUILT ON PERMAFROST ARCTIC TUNDRA, SO NONE OF THE HOUSES ARE PERMANENT AND STABLE, AND NOTHING REALLY GROWS. THERE IS ABOUT 5 MILES OF ROAD WITHIN THE TOWN, AND IT HAS THE MOST TAXIS PER-CAPITA IN THE WHOLE GLORIOUS USA. THE RESIDENTS ARE MOSTLY NATIVE YUP’IK, SOME RUSKIES, SOME […]

MOONFISH CAVE SESSION-INTO THE PINK &CIRCUS


well. it happened. surprisingly and quite successfully too. dont know how a bunch of monkeys could have pulled it off, but it happened. THE 2ND ANNUAL CAVE SESSIONS. word of mouth pretty much made this work out, and more than thought turned out. the cave got decorated pretty good, everyone had a great time, and only dennis fell off the side of the mountain. so i guess all in all it went pretty fine. heres some of the evidence. for the record, i dont think i had my camera for most of the night, but im glad i found it […]
