New Work – Into The Woods

Like any dating profile with a decent amount of respect for themselves I too, besides red wine and sunsets, also enjoy wandering in the woods… Sometimes I bring a camera. Occasionally I even take a picture… or two. This is a collection of some of them.

Enjoy!

From the iPhone

The saying goes “the best camera is the one you have with you”, nowadays that usually means your smartphone, so with that in mind I thought it was time again to share some shots I would’t have gotten if I didn’t have my iPhone with me. Now of course, this saying doesn’t quite work when your on a commercial, editorial or other job – here the best camera is the one that does the job and deliver whats needed… So usually you would have quite a different camera with you than an iPhone… But then, I guess if you pack/prepare right(Which every professional will do) the best camera is in fact the one you have with you… I wonder what clever man came up with this?

Anyways, I hope you enjoy the shots below, the shots are mainly from Vancouver with a few from some travels around British Columbia. Don’t forget to follow me on instagram for more – @ballephoto.

2013 Roundup

Thought I would rap up the past year with a few highlights.

2013 have been a great photographic journey for me.  First and foremost I have gotten to meet, know and reconnect with a bunch of awesome people and I am looking forward to connecting further in this new year. I also won a few awards, moved into a new studio, got some great new clients, had my work showcased in a few exhibitions, shot some awesome new work and have projects in the works that I am more excited about than ever.  I am very excited to get going with 2014… so much more stuff to do!

But before I get going, here is a few links to some selected highlights from the past year.

– Applied Arts Award Winner – see HERE.
– Shot William B. Davis and Richard Harmon for Vancouver Magazine – see HERE.
– I did a Santa “transformation” for my Christmas card this year – see HERE.
– Shot a goldfish – see HERE.
– Received 3 Honourable Mentions at the International Photography Awards – see HERE.
– My Carman, Manitoba also went public – see HERE.
– I also went home to visit Denmark, here is one of the series from the trip – see HERE.
– Lastly, I recently updated my “about” page on my website, there is now a “short” version AND a “long‘ version if you really want to dig in…

I will be looking forward to share more awesome work and news with you in the new year. To end this post, here is a picture of me(for a change) – had to go back a “few” years as I am always behind the camera nowadays… ok, that might be a slight exaggeration:) Anyways, I wish you all the best in the new year!!
