Catching Up

It's been a long time since I've blogged, and I've been feeling guilty about it. When I started this blog, I told myself I would post regularly, which happened for a while, but has certainly not been the case as of late. I am hereby renewing that goal to you all. Thanks for sticking around.

2008 has been a big year for me, both personally and professionally, I've got the Coles Notes update version here for you...

Beginning back in February, I finally completed the transition to working full time as a photographer. I had been working part-time up until then, and am certainly enjoying shooting full-time.

In June, my wife and I purchased a house out in the country - Central Saanich. While only 15 minutes from Victoria, it feels like a completely different world out here. As I'm working from a home office, not having to worry about commuting is certainly nice. I have now transitioned my office off of the kitchen table, and will be building a custom office space for myself this fall.

I have been working on a major project called "Picture BC" for the Knowledge Network and BC's Ministry of Tourism this summer which has required a lot of travel around the southwest coast of the province. I've met lots of great people and seen many of the beautiful places that make this province so special. I've included some of the images from this project here:

I also had the opportunity to add Popular Mechanics as a new client this summer. I shot a really fun job for them on building your own home climbing wall. Here's a quick view of the first 2 pages of the article. You can pick up a copy on the newsstand this month, or see it on their website here.

I'm really looking forward to some skiing this winter, followed by relaxing in front of the wood stove...

Cheers, Josh
