i can’t promise to fix all your problems but i can promise you that you won’t have to face them all alone

as a parent when i hear of families having health concerns with their children it hits close to home for me. as parents it is much easier to put yourself in their shoes. its easier to imagine. to empathize with them. what if it were my own child? so when our good friends Josh and Jenny Solar found out that their little boy had Cystic fibrosis, Jen and i felt sadness. to hear about the struggles they faced just to find out what was wrong with their son. then with all of that happening their daughter recently was also diagnosed. again Jen and i couldn’t begin to imagine what they were going through plus on top of all of this, they have been in a constant battle with insurance to have treatments and medical expenses covered. expenses that are in the tens of thousands of dollars.

so Dana Pugh reached out to myself and so many other amazing artists from around the world to help our good friends. it won’t cover all the expenses but it can help a little. there are online mentoring sessions, family sessions, branding packages, workshop seats…the list goes on and on. it is so incredible to be part of a community that does’t hesitate to help those in need.

myself and our good friend Ken from Renaissance Albums are teaming up to donate a 1-2 hour connection session complete with the full resolution files as well as a 10×10 12 spread SOHO book of the session. the session can either be local here in Calgary or if you’re a photographer are planning to be in Vegas for WPPI later this month we can shoot out at the beautiful Red Rock Canyon {Saturday February 28th or Tuesday March 3rd 2015}

my life isn’t perfect. but it does have perfect moments

it was one of those moments where you just have a feeling. a feeling that this is the makings of something special. something that will forever be etched in your memory. this trip. those few days and most importantly this amazing couple who put 100% of their trust in me have completely changed my life. there were so many moments where i just smiled while shooting those few days. from walking across moss covered lava fields while chasing light. to standing along the side of gravel roads watching the oncoming storm clouds. to this very moment. this incredible moment where Josh and SARAH walked to the cliff edge and stood there holding each other. keeping each other warm while Gullfoss roared behind them and the mist fell down on them like rain. i knew when we took these images that trip that we had created something special. something we would all be proud off. but i never in my wildest dreams did i expect the worldwide reaction to it. for me just to have had the opportunity to spend a few days with my good friend EWAN exploring Iceland with such an amazing couple was perfect but the reaction from people around the world is more then i could have ever dreamed of.

this award is for Sarah and Josh. for this incredible couple who are the soul reason this whirlwind of a year has happened to me. from the bottom of my heart i thank you for everything and congratulations guys on winning the:
