KelownaNow is excited to feature some of our favorite Instagram profiles from the area!

I am born and raised in Kelowna. I was a Wildland Firefighter for 15 years, where I developed my passion for photography; I fought the Okanagan Park Fire of 2003, and had several photos that I took on the fireline featured in different magazines and newspapers around the world. In pursuit of my passion, I recently attended and graduated from the Photography Program at the Centre for Arts and Technology. I am now working full time as a Photographer. In my spare time I enjoy spending time outdoors, hiking, camping, exploring and playing baseball, volleyball, golf and snowboarding in the winters.

Why do you use Instagram?

I am very outdoorsy and adventurous, and I take my camera bag everywhere with me. Most of my photographs are unplanned, and a reflection of the scenes I come across that I feel people would like to see. That being said, there are definitely occasions where I have planned camping or road trips around epic locations I've seen previously on Instagram.

What will people see on your feed?

As you will see in my feed I have a mix of stuff in there. I've been told it's good to stick to a theme or style on your Instagram but I truly enjoy all genres of Photography so why not share it all?. If I had to pick a favorite it would definitely be Adventure and Landscape photography.

Does your page have a specific style?

Guess I answered that it the last one lol...

Favourite Instagram accounts to follow?

Some of my Favorite accounts to follow and gain Inspiration from are, @chrisburkard, @clarklittle, @viktoriahaack, @scottserfas, @jasonmpeterson, @paulnicklen, @jimmychin, @wildbonde, name a few.

Why do you follow KelownaNow?

KelownaNow seems to be the go to media outlet now in Kelowna and love all the local talent that is shared on Instagram.

How do you decide on your location for shoots?

I take my camera bag everywhere with me and a lot of my photographs are just from being out on adventures. That being said I definitely have planned a few camping trips and road trips around epic locations I've seen on Instagram.

Biggest Instagram moment?

Every time one of my photos get re-posted it feels amazing to know that someone has enjoyed my work enough to want to share it with others.
