For all my avid followers, you've probably noticed I haven't been that active on the website or social media over the last few months.
And that's because I made a move - I purchased my very first home as a birthday gift to myself and moved south to a new valley.
B.C.P.hoto has moved between a few provinces and a few areas in the Thompson-Nicola Regional District over the near 10 years it's been in business, but as of this summer B.C.P.hoto is happy to announce the office and home of this photographer is now Merritt, BC!
We started with more canola growing roots and now landed in the prosperous Nicola Valley, where it's filled with trees and cattle.
For anyone in the Merritt area looking for a local ranch and farm photographer, you now have access to B.C.P.hoto! I will still be mobile and available throughout the Thompson-Nicola as well as the rest of BC, Alberta and Saskatchewan (once it's safe to travel more) but look forward to connecting with my new neighbours!
Not my usual subject matter when it comes to photography but for those who've followed along with B.C.P.hoto over the years, you'll know motivational and inspiration causes/events, that speak to the spirit of being human and part of a community, are near and dear to my heart.
And this tribute to Capt. Jennifer, Capt. Richard MacDougall and the rest of the Snowbirds team, speaks volumes to me as a pure and simple example of what it looks like when pain and hurt can be shared by many, it becomes easier to lift the fallen ones up with love, compassion and generosity.
Capt. Jennifer Casey, you will be greatly missed across Canada.
Try something new - that's what 2020 is all about for B.C.P.hoto.
I think it's of the utmost importance to get outside of your comfort zone and try new techniques to help minimize artistic stagnation and to challenge yourself. Double exposure (both in-camera and during post-processing) has been one of those techniques I've been dazzled by, but never really gave the time or attention too over the years. So come 2020, that's one challenge I've tasked myself with - become a stronger double exposure photographer.
And to start things off - I've begun that challenge with editing a few of my favourite grassland images to be double exposure. My in-camera double exposure techniques are chugging along as well, so keep your eyes peeled for future posts utilizing my camera's killer double exposure skills.
