Photoset : Coldsmoke co

I get a lot of joy showing people around BC that are not from here, so when Coldsmoke Co hit me up to shoot a look book for them in Tofino, I was ecstatic. These guys make technical outerwear from some of the best materials in the world, made in LA. It’s not like this group hasn’t travelled but none of them had been to this special place on Vancouver Island…

Photoset : The Kamloopa PowWow

On assignment for Destination British Columbia, I was commissioned to document an amazing cultural event, the Kamloopa PowWow. A PowWow is a sort of spiritual experience for both the performers and the attendees, they travel from all over North America to compete in both song and dance over 3 days. The competitions range based on type of dance style, appearance & songs and along the way there are different ceremonies and events that fill in the time such as the best caucasian dancer, where they invite people in the stands to show off their best dance style. 

Here are some of the photos from the 3 days at the PowWow in Kamloops, BC.
