Vancouver Island is a splendid place for a photographer to call home, and grandslamphoto is my on-line extension of SeaCom freelance editorial services, est. 1999.
Happily married with four hormone-ious kids, I have over 20 years experience in print media both as a writer and a shooter, and have managed to pick up a few awards along the way including the BCYCNA's Sports Photo Of The Year in 2007 and second in the province in 2010.
As a freelance writer/photographer dug in on the West Coast, this kid from Saskatchewan has had some great assignments over the years: skydiving, spending 26 hours at sea on a small sloop covering the VanIsle 360 International Yacht Race; the hike to Della Falls, capturing the Vancouver Indy, and extreme spelunking to name a few.
In 2010 I was proud to serve in Photo Operations as the photo supervisor for Cross Country Skiing at the Vancouver Winter Olympics.
Beyond sports, I also spent four years working as a studio photographer in Vancouver, and as such offer weddings and other private shoots, as well as stock photography and work-for-hires, including 'sportraiture': unposed and always inspired, action shots of your favorite athlete in action.
