"Native Heritage" mural in Chemainus

More Chemainus Photos

Over the past year, more of the Chemainus photos that I produced with Primal Communications sprouted up. There’s some photos in the 2015 Cowichan Vacation Guide and a few more in the Vancouver Island Vacation Guide 2015.

More on my Chemainus photos here…

The Whistler Sea to Sky Climb through the Cheakamus.

Rocky Mountaineer in Cheakamus Canyon

A photo I shot from the Rocky Mountaineer “Sea to Sky Climb” was published in Frommer’s Far & Wide: A Weekly Guide to Canada’s Best Travel Experiences. This was in 2008 when this ride was called the Whistler Mountaineer. It’s a beautiful trek up to Whistler and back, through some of the best the coast has to offer. You can see more of my train photos on All Canada Photos.

Visit Chemainus Photos

Over the summer of 2014, I worked with Primal Communications to shoot photos for a complete rebrand of the Chemainus Business Improvement Association.

Chemainus is a small town on the east coast of Vancouver Island, BC just south of Nanaimo. Most notably, you may have heard of Chemainus because of its live theatre and murals, which are beautiful and throughout the town. It truly is Vancouver Island’s Arts Town.

All the materials are now hitting the streets: brochure, ads, banners, website and billboards. It’s amazing to see it all come to light.  The banners and billboards, as large as they are – hold their quality.  This is where the RAW files from my Nikon D800 really shined. Primal did fantastic work here on the design and rebrand.

Everybody I met in Chemainus was warm and welcoming and such a treat to work with. A big thank you to everyone at Primal Communications in Nanaimo, the Chemainus BIA, the Best Western Plus Chemainus Inn and all the artists and volunteers we met. There will always be a place in my heart for this little village by the sea.
