Golden Peggy

Also a frequent and favorite landscape spot- the famous Peggy’s Cove here in Nova Scotia. This photo has earned me a spot in National Geographic’s e-travel magazine (2012) as well as the Canadian Geographic scenes calendar (2015). It’s also one of my best sellers.

Halls Harbour Purple

Halls Harbour is a great little tourist spot up on the north mountain in the Annapolis Valley. I’ve been up there several times and it’s becoming a favorite spot to photograph, particularly at sunset. Try the lobster!

Here is a collection of beach photos from around our beautiful province. Rissers Beach Jimtown Beach, Antigonish Five Island Beach at Sunset Carters Beach (Port Mouton) Halls Harbour Crystal Crescent […]

Go West

a perfect mountain lakeside morning

This past October I had the opportunity to go “out west” to Edmonton, to visit my dear friend Emily. Emily is a Nova Scotia girl who has made Edmonton her home. In addition to being an amazing chef and generous host, Emily is a fantastic tour guide. We drove all over Edmonton, out to Elk […]

Ravenwood

I love the Valley in the fall. Have I mentioned that?Did an engagement shoot here on this beautiful property and couldn’t help grab a long shot of the driveway in the process. I’ve been looking for a driveway like this!

Rissers Campground

Having never been to the famous Rissers Beach and Campground on the south shore of Nova Scotia, I was excited for a weekend getaway. Getting to sleep beside the ocean, and waking up to walk the endless beach and boardwalk was just the ticket for late September as summer turns to fall.

Trainspotting

Have been out doing a bit of landscape / stock photo chasing and discovered a really great spot by the Fairview Terminal / Africville in Halifax. Spent some time photographing the many trains that come and go in that spot.

Keji

Oh, Keji. So popular, but really not overrated. I was tricked into a backwoods camping trip and a few evening light photos made the hours-long canoe ride worth it.

Hubley, Nova Scotia

It was about as cold as it looked on this beautiful morning- and I nearly broke my leg climbing down the hill to get closer to the water!

Blossoms

As we approach fall, I have begun to dig back through some old files and spruce them up a bit. For no good reason, apart from sometimes a few years away from a photo can make it look very different!! Here are two I thought were kind of ‘meh’… but have grown on me since […]

Camping

Went back woods camping last weekend, and was pretty much a kid in a candy store out there in the back of beyond. There was a meteor shower that night- and I was out on the water while it was happening, so no meteor photos…. however here are a few others I captured from around […]

Melmurby Beach

“The Merb”, as I’m told the locals called it, captured my heart from the first time I saw it. I begged my wonderful friend Ti to take me back at sunset so we could see if it was just as magical as it had been in the morning… and it was.

Gaspereau Valley mist

Landscapes are undoubtedly my best work, and also my favorite thing to shoot. There’s nothing like being completely connected to your environment with no one else’s wishes but yours. This shot of Gaspereau Valley was taken one morning when I was dropping my dog off at daycare- and I spotted the mist rising off the […]

Sandy Cove

I went out to this lighthouse half a dozen times in all different types of weather, attempting to get this shot. It’s foggy out there! Finally got it around 7 am on an early October morning. Terrance Bay, NS.

Reservoir Park

Going home in autumn is always a treat. This photo was taken at the reservoir park in Wolfville on an October afternoon. Yes, it is right way up.

Blomidon in Summer

When newcomers visit the Annapolis Valley, there’s only one spot that we locals take them to get a feel for the valley- up to the lookoff, or “Blomidon.” I’m up there all the time, as the view never gets old. Here are two of my favorites from the last day of Summer- early morning sunrise.

Indian Harbour

Travel along the road to Peggy’s Cove a little further than expected and you will encounter a wonderful series of little inlets, restaurants and other magical sights. This was taken in Indian Harbour, just behind the Rhubarb Restaurant.

Cape Breton

So, I had never really “seen” Cape Breton before this summer. I had been to Sydney a few times, and along the way just thought… “Okay, maybe this is what everyone is talking about….?” (no offense, Sydney or surrounding area!) However this summer my bestie and I did a road trip together around the Cabot […]

Lawrencetown Beach

This little gem is Lawrencetown beach, at sunset in July. We climbed to the top of a grassy hill to get a better view across the little town. This first shot has ended up being one of my most popular, and personal favorites. Lawrencetown looks different every season, and every time you visit.

Home of my heart

Those who know me well, know that Newfoundland is the home of my ‘heart.’ Whereas Nova Scotia is where I reside. Every chance I get, I hop aboard a plane to St. Johns to visit three of my best friends in the world. Here are some landscapes from a recent visit.

University Hall

This year, for some reason, I had a lot of people asking if I had any photos of Acadia. I have lots of photos taken AT Acadia- in Denton Hall, at the Irving Centre, etc- but I made it my mission this year to collect at least one good one of the campus. This was […]

Winter Blomidon

A few years back, my friend KT hired me to photograph Blomidon- but at sunrise, and in all four seasons. Here is the final installment, winter.

Tors Cove, Newfoundland

This is on a beautiful perfect July afternoon at Tors Cove, which is a good drive outside St. Johns. On the opposite side of this view, there is a little island with sheep roaming around. It’s kind of charming out there.

Sydney River Bridge

I was sent up to Sydney, NS for the first time last month for a corporate photoshoot. I was really excited about seeing Cape Breton! It was a lovely drive. My hotel was about two seconds from the Sydney River Bridge, where I caught this lovely sunset.

Golf at the edge of the world-

Those who live in or have visited Chester, Nova Scotia, know that it is one of our province’s treasures. Whether it’s a visit to the Seaside Shanty after a day on a boat, or visiting Chester Golf Club for a rousing 18 holes, Chester is a community full of culture and joy. Over the years […]

Carters Beach

Discovered this little gem in June on a road trip with my friend. The sand is almost white, it’s hot, and the beach was completely empty. This is Carter’s Beach, down near Port Mouton in Nova Scotia.

The dark clouds and their perfect timing

After a wedding I did in June with some good friends, we ventured to the Dartmouth waterfront to catch some great photos. We had so much fun, as you can see- and just as we were walking back to the car to head to the reception, this huge, grey-blue, looming monster of a cloud started […]

Blomidon in Spring

My dad and I ventured up the north mountain to catch a different perspective of the Lookoff / Blomidon- this time from sunset. Dad is my favorite photo buddy and greatest teacher. I love this image and the time together it represents for me, and those who love the valley.

Eagles

Got invited to an “Eagle Watch Brunch” today… and what a treat it was! Not only were some friends and I well fed, we got to watch these magnificent creatures up close- as they fed, swooped and played with each other. I was glad to have my telephoto lens however- I would not have wanted […]

Prospect fishing village

Got up several mornings last fall to try and get out to Prospect to grab this shot. Once you hit that road to Peggy’s Cove, most mornings it’s a foggy mess! Was very pleased that this particular morning was so clear. It’s lovely and secluded out there- a beautiful community.
