Personal Work – Tree Study

We have just had another beautiful fog rolling in over Vancouver and it reminded me that it was about time to share this series which I photographed back in January on yet another foggy Vancovuer day.

The series is of trees… and if you have been following my work you might remember that this has been my subject matter in the past as well… for some reason I’m very drawn to these when they are singled out and separated by a soft misty background.

If you want to see my older series of trees you can see it HERE.

In other news I have a few more features which I will be sharing this next little while so stay tuned… you could subscribe to the blog HERE if you wanna make sure not to miss it;)

EDIT: Forgot to mention that if your in the Vancouver area there is an amazing gallery show opening on Friday the 13th by photographer Wayne A. Hoecherl. For the past year, Wayne has invited male subjects to participate in this ongoing series of black and white portraits, which has culminated in a collection of over 150 images. There should be an image of me in there as well. The show is at Photohaus Gallery (14 West 7th Avenue, Vancouver), more details HERE and HERE.

 

Anyways, enjoy my new personal work below…

DODHO Magazine Feature

Great news – I’m pretty excited to announce that my Carman, Manitoba series recently was featured in DODHO Magazine out of Barcelona, Spain… Last year the series was also featured by SPAM Magazine out of Milano, Italy… Seems like southern Europe are quite fond of this series.

On another note, I’m also going on a mini trip to Vancouver Island today, never been there at this time of year so thats pretty exciting! Hopefully the surf is good! But nonetheless, I’m sure I’ll get a few great shots out of it:) In the meantime I’ll leave you with some of the photos that came out of my last trip to this magical place, you can check them out here

…And you can of course follow my trip on Instagram (@ballephoto).

 

Thanks!

Black Rocks, Ucluelet

I had the chance to revisit Tofino and its surrounding areas again this summer, I absolutely love it out there! And between all the surfing, breathtaking nature and great local foods, there was off course time to do some photos as well. This little mini series was done by the black rocks close to the Amphitrite Lighthouse by Ucluelet, about 1/2 an hours drive from Tofino.

 

Enjoy.

Cloud Study

Hi there,

The end of summer is unfortunately near(at least in our part of the world), I hope you all have enjoyed it! I have had a fabulous and busy summer here in Vancouver with lots of travel, photography projects and commercial work.

Anyways, I thought I would share this little mini series that I recently shot during a trip up to Powell River, Canada. Back and forth from Vancouver it makes a total of 4 ferry rides. And guess what… these are all shot from one of these rides… The clouds, light and mountains were absolutely amazing and I feel these photographs really showcase their raw beauty. This past year I have been shooting a lot of work in my studio here in Vancouver so it’s been great to get outside and shoot these past months.

Btw, you might have seen some teasers from this series if you follow me on Instagram, Facebook or Behance.

Published – SPAM Magazine, Milano, Italy

My Carman, Manitoba series was recently published by the communication agency SPAM out of Milano, Italy in their very innovative magazine by the same name – SPAM magazine.

Here is a little quote from their site:
“In the age where magazines are going digital, we’re going from digital back to paper. Are we nuts? Probably, or maybe just in love with what we do.” 

You can see the tear sheets below and of course view the full series at www.jenskristianballe.com and www.jenskristianballephotographs.com.

As a bonus their print magazine also uses features like Augmented Reality, HERE is a video about how that works.
