Bellavista - [Bel-uh][vis-tuh] - 'Beautiful view'
1) The name of my grand parents farm in the Bella Coola valley 1894-1964. I spent my early years here.
2) My goal in photography.
The world is a wonderful place to learn and explore. However, we are pushed along by family and career committments making it difficult to experience the beauty that surrounds us.
My goal is to show you the beautiful side of the world and help you appreciate the nature that gives us everything.
Based in the center of the Fraser Valley, I spend my time photographing a wide variety of subjects
I also travel to unique spots around the globe to expand my knowledge of remote and lesser understood areas.
In addition, I specialize in Commercial work such as Aerial, Product and Corporate photography.
I have a complete photographic studio available for commercial/portrait work in Abbotsford.
As well, for location shooting I have an assortment of mobile equipment.
I use the highest resolution cameras available for the best tonal gradient and image quality.
My forte is large fine art prints - to enhance your home, office and especially your soul.
Contact me to discuss your photographic needs.
