The Whistler Question

I’ve been working at the Whistler Question newspaper for the last few weeks. It’s been a lot of fun, as my roots are in photojournalism, and I actually started as a Question photographer back in the 80’s. It’s a nice break from the weddings and commercial photographer that’s been my lot for the last few years.

These are a few shots from the Sarah Burke Memorial on Tuesday night. There’s been a lot of local residents who have been killed or injured this year. It’s a lot for such a small town, and I think as a community we really needed it.


Vancouver Circus School workshop at the Cheakamus Crossing athlete's centre.
It’s not all heavy stuff. This was a shot from when the Vancouver Circus School gave a workshop for the local kids. Here seven year old McKenzie Jackson works with trampoline coach Travis Johnson.

Whistler-Blackcomb King of the Rail competition
Sometimes you get shoot sports events. Being in Whistler, it’s better if you do them in the middle of the night in a rainstorm. Kerr McEwen rides in the final event of the Whistler-Blackcomb King of the Rail competition beside the GLC.
