One of the most fantastic things that ever happened to me was the rare opportunity to travel to India at the young age of 16. Thus begun the wanderlust that has led to exploring and adventuring through 5 continents while actually having the privilege to live on 3 different ones – not at the same time! I love to shoot the beauty of the landscapes in my home town on Vancouver Island but my first passion is to capture the light, the people and the landscapes of Asia.
“It is impossible not to be astonished by India. Nowhere on Earth does humanity present itself in such a dizzying, creative burst of cultures and religions, races and tongues.” capturing images in incredible india is an experience you don’t want to miss
Thailand – the land of smiles is sure to bring smiles to a photographers face. Whether its bustling Bangkok, the beaches of the south or the mountains and lush forests of the north Thailand is a photographers paradise. Transportation is cheap and logistics are easier than other locations. Flights from Bangkok to the north are only about $50, scooters are easily rented everywhere which makes it a great place for the exploring photographer.
Despite living next door for a couple of years my first trip into Nepal was only a few years ago. After my first visit to Katmandu, Pokhara and some other areas of Nepal I was truly disappointed that I took so long to make it to Nepal. Its time to make up for lost adventures! We will be back this year for further exploration and to continue building a partnership we have embarked on to change the lives of children rescued from the streets and a life of abject poverty.
Home is where the heart is and the Comox Valley lives in the heart of her residents and beyond. Time and time again I meet new people who have moved to this place I call home and the narrative is the same, ” we searched all over the country and this is the place of our dreams”. I am a passionate traveler and love to be on the move but when I touch down in Vancouver and make the incredible journey across the Georgia Straight and finally arrive in our little city I am a very happy man. #weareyqq
