Personal – I’m VUL Volunteer of the Year

When I’m not cranking out client work from my laptop, or biking around town, I’m probably playing Ultimate (Frisbee, …not Fighting Championship).

I’ve been playing Ultimate since 2003. I started in Highschool, then played for UBC-B, and then a Men’s competitive touring team. After that, I moved on to coaching Provincial Junior Teams and Highschools. Most recently, I’ve been volunteering my time to mentor teams for the Vancouver Ultimate League (VUL) who are just getting started/need a little more direction.

As a result, this year, I was lucky enough to be chosen as one of two Volunteers of the Year!

Nice to get some kudos from the League + $100 gift card to Rackets & Runners! You can see the full article on the VUL site here.

Personal – Walking the Great Glen Way

Alright,

Starting to chip away at my images from my recent trip to Scotland and Iceland. Thought I’d start off with a Timelapse of the 127km walk I did with my Dad all the way across Scotland on the Great Glen Way. Don’t worry, it’s less than 2 minutes (it took us 6 days).

All of these were shot about every 5-30 minutes on the trail with a GoPro HERO 4. You can see towards the end I get a little more trigger happy and that smooths out the motion a little more (hope you didn’t get too car sick). Stay tuned for more images!

Personal – Fogcouver

Alright,

I’m going to walk across Scotland with my Dad in April so… in a bout of temporary insanity/inspiration from the recent foggy weather I decided walking around Vancouver would be a good idea… now you’re probably thinking… yes, yes I walk around Vancouver too… well that dear reader is where you are wrong.

I started my walk in Railtown and then walked over both the Second Narrows and Lions Gate Bridge until I landed myself back where I started. According to Google Maps (after some digital kung fu trying to convince it that YES, yes in fact I’m going to be making this trip all on foot) this clocks out to approximately 25.1 km. The good news is that the path we’re taking in Scotland isn’t quite as lengthy and it’s broken up over a week. Regardless, a good dry run for packing around camera gear and testing out my galavanting shoes.

Now on to the images, if you’ve followed my work before you know I’m a PRETTY big fan of a shallow depth of field. This fog gave a really cool element of compressing the scene, you can see the results below…
