Walks in the Park With Lola Frost

Posted on 20th July 2012 in fashion, risque

I thought that I had lost these photos somewhere when I had moved to Europe for half a year, but then I realized I just had them mixed in with some photographs of flowers! Well, I guess it’s fitting since Lola Frost and I did take a walk in the park, and we did do a photoshoot in the park.

It was actually quite funny while doing this shoot, as many people kept walking right through the shoot. First, as we pulled up, there was a lacrosse team in the box practicing.. They all lined up along the fence to watch as Lola walked by, it was quite awesome. Next, a lady on her bicycle biked right between Lola and I as I was shooting. Lastly, two girls walked through the baseball field and were making cat calls and whistling the whole way. Oh what fun times in the park!

For those of you that don’t know, Lola is one of the queens behind Sweet Soul Burlesque, and Vancouver Burlesque Center where some of the most amazing women reside. Check them out. Also, Lola and I have done a few shoots before. If you’re a return customer of this site you’ll remember in the studio, or the after dark shoot, or on the train tracks

This shot was done entirely with my 50mm prime, and I had one off camera flash that I triggered with my Cowboy Studio NPT-04 FM Radio Trigger, but this was only used to fill in a bit of shadows as some of them were vicious. I’m also just trying to learn what I like!

Journey Through the Kootneys

Posted on 14th September 2011 in adventure, nature

Recently, I’ve gone from a wedding in Kamloops, through the Rocky Mountains to Calgary, where I did a photoshoot with Kimberbow. After all this excitement, yes, I kept on journeying, and headed to the Kootneys.

I travelled down the East side of the Rockies, past the Black Creek Heritage Rangeland Natural Reserve along highway 22. I came out at Lundbreck where they have windmills everywhere, which I find very beautiful to see.  After this, I stayed on highway 3 most of the way to Creston, at which time I turned North along Kootney Lake, over the Nelson ferry, and stayed along the lake and up through Kaslo, where Kootney Lake is now called Mirror Lake.

From here the trip went up between Goat Range Provincial Park and Duncan Lake, where it turned to gravel road. This swung all around and came out close to the ferry to go across to Revelstoke, which I bypassed and kept heading down along Upper Arrow Lake through Nakusp, across to Rosebery, down the East side of Slocan Lake through Winlaw (which I thought was beautiful place) and across to Nelson. I really enjoyed Nelson, and wish i would have spent more time there, but After this, I meandered my way through Salmo, Fruitvale, Trail, Rossland, and then up past Nancy Green Provincial Park, and over to Castlegar on the 3 again, the Crownest Highway. I stayed in Syringa Provincial Park, which was beautiful, but quirky because it was on a lake that was a lake because at the end of the lake there was a giant dam (and a pulp mill). After this, I headed back through Castlegar, and along the Crowsnest Hwy to Grand Forks and Westwood, at which time I turned up to Christian Valley which was a long gravel road. I found a cold, but remote campsite where I wandered around for a while.

Long story short, after this went through to Kamloops, then back home to Vancouver. Pheuf! Now, PICTURES! (there’s a lot)
