After a very busy month, I’m so excited to be visiting Kelowna next weekend and seeing our friends and meeting new ones! ❤️ Going to be a much needed break from reality and have some fun!

Bewick's Wren (“Thryomanes Bewickii”) is a wren native to North America. These birds live in thickets, brush piles and hedgerows, open woodlands and scrubby areas, often near streams. They feed primarily on insects and spiders.
Happy Belated Birthday to the best little brother around. The one who will always pick you up when you’re down and be there for you in the most selfless way possible - like this photo shoot where I was feeling really down but it turned into a great day with amazing images because he was willing to model for me. Enjoy the beginning of your 20s @huxy54
On especially frigid days in the winter, wildlife have all kinds of tricks to stay warm. When I took this image, it was a -30°C day and several blue jays were lined up in some spruce trees facing the sun. They puff up their feathers to trap air and this provides extra insulation to help them stay warm. They were also tucking their beaks, and in some cases their entire heads into their body to keep their faces warm. It is pretty amazing how resilient our wildlife are to survive the winter! •
Here is a series featuring 10 of my favourite long exposure images.
This effect can be created directly in camera using a much darker piece of glass (neutral density filter) over your lens to allow more light to enter the camera over a longer period of time without overexposing your photo.
Different strengths of neutral density filters can be used, depending on your desired effect or optimal exposure time. Smoothing out water on lakes and waterfalls, conveying a sense of movement or drama, clouds streaking across the sky, or moving traffic, can be a few examples of situations you may want to use a longer exposure for.
This technique is one of my favourites to teach, as I get just as excited as my students when they are able to capture this effect directly in camera.

Yesterday Victoria and I went out to practice some lighting and portrait ideas with my Lume Cubes and these are the results.
As I'm not used to shooting portraits and I'm always learning, I'm sure my photographer friends may have some ideas on how I could improve these (and I'm always open to suggestions.
Here are a handful from the session yesterday, hope you like them!
I'm very thankful to my friends at @lumecube for giving me the opportunity to be a product ambassador
This opportunity also allows me to give back and I am now able to get you 15% off of all Lume Cube Products with the code FREAK15, just apply the code at checkout!
I've dropped the link on my IG profile
Also, since my birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks, I'm celebrating it with a lume cube giveaway. Stay tuned next week for details #LitByLume#LumeCube#Capture4Cubes
The way has looked at us when we said we’re leaving for a week
Do you guys wanna see our trip in our stories? Or keep it to dog related things?

It feels like we are heading into the last stretch of winter here, February is coming to a close and spring is just around the corner! Although there will be snow in the mountains for a few more months, I’m already getting excited for these stunning colours to return!
Oh, I wish the weekend wasn’t trying to leave us so soon! I’m trying to catch it but I don’t know how to! Any tips? 🐾
Happy Sunday Funday! 💙
Bon dimanche! 💛
Oh, j’aimerais tant que la fin de semaine n’essaie pas de nous quitter aussi vite! J’essaie de l’attraper mais je ne sais pas comment! As-tu des trucs? 🐾

Fishing at the base of Wekusko Falls, Northern Manitoba.
Soon. The Pumphouse on a hot summer day. Clearwater Lake, Manitoba.
Ptarmigan. My favourite bird to photograph. I took this photo outside of Dease lake, I had just finished shooting the Caribou herd and found this group of Ptarmigan right around the corner. Prime example of the variety and abundance of wildlife in Northern B.C.
