Yesterday I woke up early to meet up with a newly formed band that everyone better watch out for! Ex Stowaway members and brothers Dustin and Josh Marsh, my best friend Kenton Spohr, and ex Faber Drive drummer Calvin Lechner have been busy working on their new album in a secret recording studio location and they asked me if i would shoot some promo shots for them. We drove out to a location in the interior country side of BC and had an amazing time! Here are a few of the shots i got.

Today I drove out to the Sockeye Salmon run at The Adams River hoping to shoot some photos of the red salmon for Canadian Geographic only to find roughly 15 salmon the whole trip! Waste Of Time! But I did snap a couple shots of things other then fish.

Recently my best friend Kenton moved into a character home. The home was built in 1901 entirely out of specially manufactered concrete blocks. It was once home to his girlfriend's great grandparents and now is owned by his girlfriends mother. It was a live in home for 18 years, but has remained empty for years and definitely shows wear not only on the outside but inside as well. Before we begin restoring this home i wanted to shoot some before photos. Here are a couple one from the basement. The other from a hallway upstairs. This house is HUGE! It has 3 levels and 8 bedrooms and kitchen just upstairs! The middle floor has begun restoration on the hardwoods and bathroom. It definitely has the potential to be one of the cities most beautiful homes.

n. pl. al·bi·nos
A person or animal lacking normal pigmentation, with the result being that the skin and hair are abnormally white or milky and the eyes have a pink or blue iris and a deep-red pupil.
Today I went for a drive in the country side and saw these beautiful horses near this abandoned pioneer home. I had never seen an albino horse before and had to pull over to photograph it. They both loved the camera every step I would take they would follow me. I had to get the shot fast and get back in my car cause it began to thunderstorm minutes after I shot this photo.

MTV filmed a TV series here called FEAR. They renamed Padova City "Serenity Lake Sanitorium" for the Tv show. I was talking to a guy a few years ago who was on set and he was telling me half of the Los Angeles film crew packed up and left after the first night of filming they were so terrified! Here is the first of 5 clips of the show you can watch the rest on YOUTUBE.
"From a sanatorium to a mental health institution to a run-down shadow of a former era, Tranquille is forever changing".
Me and my friend Connor took a trip out to Padova City near Kamloops, BC today to try and get some shots. The land is private property and surveillanced 24 hours a day, our trip got cut early due to WAY to many security guards patrolling the area. Honestly I was lucky enough to get the shots I did. This will be the first of many postings, I will have to make frequent trips to capture all the amazing sites.
