I have a story about the Pemho. The one and only "bar" in town. Affectionately (maybe?) coined the 'Pemho' after the Pemberton Hotel and the wit that comes about after a few beers. Almost everyone has their own story about one time or another, at the Pemho. I may have stretched the truth to get … Continue reading Confessions of your local Bartender

I am a big believer in enjoying experiences firsthand, so if I am off to enjoy a birthday or fireworks, I do it camera-free. I remember missing an entire evening once because … Continue reading A professional photographers counsels you to leave the huge equipment behind, but never leave home without an iPhone.
Earlier this month, I was given the amazing opportunity to capture the wedding celebrations of my friends, Maya & Anuj, in Alberta, Canada. 2500kms round trip, a couple different hotels, and a whirlwind of activity resulted in way over 10,000 images, which I now get to cruise through.
