I really love working at the Squamish Chief, they give me a lot of freedom to get into some really interesting Squamish portraits. The photos here come from the winter and upcoming summer Discover Squamish magazines, as well as Best of Squamish Readers Choice and Women in Business special publications.

This was a lot of fun to work on. It was for a winter Discover Squamish magazine story on the Squamish Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue volunteers.

Tech Stuff
All of the photos were taken with off-camera flash, with the flashed bounced into an umbrella for the inside shots, and mounted in a Westcott small Octobox for the outside photos. I prefer to use an umbrella where ever possible, but they’re really not much use in any kind of wind. I used a Nikon D3 camera with a 24-70mm f/2.8 lens for all the photos.
