2016 Top 16

   With the New Year upon us, it is time to reflect back on our favourite memories, adventures with friends, what we learned…and photos, of 2016. I have narrowed all the photos I shot in 2016 down to 16 somehow, and this is what I was left with. A combination of how I like the photo and the memories behind it are what influenced these decisions.

I’m looking forward to what 2017 will hold for progression and creativity, and seeing where this wonderful thing called a camera will take me. Happy New Years everyone, much love!!

Nicki & Paul Wedding Reel – 24.09.2016

   A beautiful location for a beautiful wedding! Paul and Nicki tied the knot on Thetis Island off of Chemainus, Vancouver Island and it was a great day to be had by all. Thanks for having me there to capture it all! If you or someone you know is getting married, please contact me to learn about my wedding video packages. Thank you!

Rifflandia Top 12

As bittersweet as the end of Summer is, we have it pretty good here in Victoria with Rifflandia Music Festival finishing off the warm season with a bang. With the enormous amount of musical talent we have here on the Island, not to mention in Canada, you can always count on Atomique Productions to bring the good noise. This was my first year being an official Rifflandia photographer, and it was most certainly an excellent time. Between the main stages at Royal Athletic Park and all the night venues, there is no shortage of acts to enjoy; in fact, it would be near impossible to catch everyone you want to see. Enjoy my top 12 photos of this year, and check out the full album on Facebook

Art Battle Victoria – 2016 Promo

I have been the official Art Battle Victoria photographer for well over a year now, but I switched things up in September for the season premiere and produced a video for AB to promote the rest of the season.

Art Battle is a monthly live competitive painting event held across Canada, with the events falling on the second Thursday of every month here in Victoria at the Victoria Event Centre. Check them out on Facebook for more information regarding the event, or come on down to the VEC this Thursday, October 6th at 7:30pm to see what it is all about! The event page can be found here. Hope to see you there!

 

 

 

Help Heart & Hands Raise the Roof!

I had the pleasure of producing a video for Heart & Hands Health Collective for their Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to help with the inevitable (and extremely costly) replacement of their roof.
Heart & Hands is where I have been going for community acupuncture treatments for quite some time now, so this was definitely a great project to work on.
Please share this video and give them some love over at igg.me/at/hhraisetheroof and help them reach their $8000 goal by the end of September.

You Might Just Get Hit With the R.I.C.O.

I used to film skateboarding; well I still do, just not nearly as much as I used to. After YouGotThat.ca’s 365 was released May 2015, I’ve found it difficult to get out into the streets often enough to see a potential full-length on the horizon. I didn’t want these clips to get old so I decided to edit together the few clips I’ve filmed in the past year for your viewing pleasure. Check out You Got That! for hundreds of more posts featuring Canadian skateboarding.

Sloooow Mo

In between sets while filming for Ska Fest back in June, I decided to test out 96fps on the GH4 in lowlight – shot at f/1.0 with a Metabones Speedbooster and Sigma 30mm f/1.4. Not bad for a camera that “isn’t good in lowlight”.
