Winter Queen

2013-12-23 Winter Queen-by-eye-for-detail-007.jpg

These photos were taken last month with a model from Dawson Creek. The theme is the idea of Ice Queen or Winter Queen, but not as a menacing figure, a la Jadis from Narnia. Sure, there’s some menace, but the idea was to capture winter as a season. Sometimes cruel, but mostly inevitable and a part of the normal cycle of the seasons.

TRSS 2013

Filed under News and Announcements • Written by Trent @ 11:22 pm

We were going to put a link here to the TRSS school photos, but thought that some parents would not like the link to be in the wild, so instead, we are asking parents that want access to the photos digitally to email us, and we’ll send you a link.

PAD day 19: blue

2013-08-20 Ashlee Rain-by-eye-for-detail-001.jpg

Blue: The colour blue tends to imply cool, though I’d say it was closer to cold tonight when I asked Ashlee to stand under a spray of water outside, straight from the hose. I think I’m obligated to run this pictures, even though we shot some with an umbrella, because, well, she stood under a freezing cold spray of water for me. And because, come on, she’s freaking gorgeous in this shot.

PAD Day 18: Wedded to the game

Filed under Just for Fun,Portraits: family, children and individual • Written by Trent @ 6:04 pm


Wedded to the game: This one needs a bit of set-up. Naomi and Matthew have been married for ten years. They wanted to recreate some of their wedding pictures. But they also wanted to shoot at the golf course.

And I thought, what about recreating the wedding pictures, but golfing? So instead of a bouquet, Naomi would hold clubs. This idea is about to turn into a series….

This one is right out of their album.

PAD Day 17: Dizz-eve

Filed under Just for Fun,Portraits: family, children and individual • Written by Trent @ 6:00 pm


There’s a new park out at Gwillim Lake, and a new device that’s like a merry-go-round, but is much smaller and has ropes to climb on. Anyway, like a Merry-go-round, if you sit in the middle, you spin less fast then at the outer edge. So we loaded up the device with kids, put Eve in the middle, and started spinning.  All the shots turned out so different. I’m not sure this is my fav, but I love the expression on her (barely visible) face.

Tumbler Ridge Wedding: Danielle and Derek

Filed under Wedding and Engagements • Written by Trent @ 1:55 pm

2013-08-09 Danielle and Derek-by-eye-for-detail-024.jpg

Danielle and Derek’s wedding was about the most casual affair I’ve ever been to, held in their backyard and with only a small group of friends to witness the event. Rather than hide before the wedding, Danielle was down there in her dress, mingling with friends and neighbours.

But the casualness of the wedding was only fitting, considering these two, and it was no less a wondrous for its lack of pomp and pageantry, and it will be a wedding I remember for a long time, for all its simple elegance and homespun charm.

PAD Day 15: Kris Krupp

Filed under Just for Fun,Portraits: family, children and individual • Written by Trent @ 11:58 pm


I was hoping to take a picture of Kris Swanson out running. After all, that’s his element. But today got away from me and by the time I was free, it was well after dark. So we came into the studio. He kept saying his beard made him look evil, so my mind went to a photo by Arnold Newman of Alfried Krupp, where he underlit the image to create a more ominous portrait. So, that’s what we did here. I love the way the light catches the lines of his cheek, and I can’t help but think he looks a bit like an image of James Franco I’ve seen somewhere but can’t find anymore. Or maybe I just imagined it.

PAD Day 14: One Romantic Evening

Filed under Just for Fun,Portraits: family, children and individual • Written by Trent @ 11:57 pm


Okay, this will probably be the big set piece of the year. The actual idea was a little different; I wanted to get candles on both sides of the falls and have her in the water, but there’s a wind down there, and the tea lights basically blew out. Over on this side of the falls the wind is blocked by an overhang.

PAD Day 13: A light to guide her

Filed under Just for Fun,Portraits: family, children and individual • Written by Trent @ 11:56 pm


I had this sunset-y sort of image planned for Lynsey, but when the sunset didn’t actually materialized, we went onto plan two. Think red riding hood, without the red hood. Is she lost? Is that a big bad wolf up ahead? Or maybe it’s something else.
