Animal & Wildlife Photography

Photographing animals, whether your cat at home or a cougar in the great outdoors, requires patience, perseverance and an understanding of animal behaviour. Predicting how they will be likely to act or react, helps you to anticipate the moment for a good photograph.

SAFETY FIRST

No shot is worth risking your safety when dealing with animals. Stay in the car if there is a bear or a buffalo on the road. A wild animal's reaction to your presence is unpredictable - particularily during mating season. A telephoto lens or long zoom lens is helpful, and support like a tripod.

PATIENCE

Animal photography requires great patience; like fishing, you often have to wait a long time in the right place to catch the best ones.

Patience applies also with pets and domestic animals. They sometimes seem to be uncooperative when you bring out your camera. Keeping calm and taking things one step at a time often helps the animal to relax.

Grand Photography

AUGUST 30, 2012 - The Okanagan's largest and most luxurious hotel needed some new photos this summer to update the company's website and marketing materials.
Purchased by Delta Hotels last year, the Grand Okanagan Resort is ideally situated on the shore of Lake Okanagan.
I enjoyed photographing a range of the suites for the company using my full-frame D800 with ultra-wide angle lenses and portable flashes.

Kelowna classroom turned inside-out

SEPTEMBER, 2012 - Technology and new trends have turned education around in some classrooms in the Okanagan this year. One biology teacher at Okanagan Mission Secondary School directs her students to her posted online video lectures for homework, opening up classroom time for discussion and lab work.
I recently captured images to illustrate this for a feature story in the Vancouver Sun newspaper.

Architectural Art

SEPTEMBER, 2012 - The Art of Fine Living is alive and well in the Okanagan's largest city of Kelowna.
The comfortable lifestyle prevalent in the community is reflected in many artistic creations by the Okanagan's finest home builders.
Here is the open design of kitchen flowing to dining area, living area and beyond that I captured, among others, last month for one Kelowna builder. For now, I'll hold back on names, since there are potential awards on the line through the Canadian Home Builders Association..
