I don't always have something clever/exciting/worthwhile to write about every day, so that is where my little notebook comes in. I carry this thing around with me pretty much wherever I go in case an idea for a post comes to me. Sometimes it is just a single word, the... Continue reading

I have to give Greg credit for inspiring me to do throwback/flashback posts with his Throwback Thursday post yesterday. What a clever way to blog about something you haven't yet that is currently irrelevant but still worth posting about! - pure genius! Awhile ago I did a flashback to the... Continue reading

The world has a major hard-on for Dave Grohl right now, and I don't blame them! He is a super inspiring guy! (And not to mention unbelievably talented!) The following quote of his speaks mountains to me. (And bonus points coming from someone from one of my favorite bands!) "I... Continue reading

I have always wanted to create an iconic rock photograph (or at least have a photograph look like it could potentially become iconic) but I never expected in a million years that I would create an image that nearly a year later I would still love so much. So I... Continue reading

Any new music that I have bought lately has pretty much all been on vinyl. I love the quality, the sound, the pure bliss, the moments you share with your friends sitting around just listening to the music - hearing the words, feeling all emotions. (PS guys - we don't... Continue reading

You know when you have a bunch of plans to do on your weekend, but would rather stay in bed until noon and laze around? Yep, that is totally me today and I am surprisingly okay with that. Yeah, I went to look for new winter boots this afternoon but... Continue reading

I've sat and looked at a blank "New Post" screen every day this week, this was even after looking at my prompts I have written in a notebook when I have run out of ideas of what to write. I only typed out the start of a post the other... Continue reading

So now that my blog is a year old and I am still very enthuastic about it, I should probably be setting some goals on how to achieve the growth I want. I started off a year ago with one simple, yet apparently hard to manage goal, hoping to blog... Continue reading

Happy Birthday to I'm With The Band! I created this blog on a whim a year ago with my this post - to document my band life & share my crazy adventures with you. (Like seriously on a whim - I had thought of the idea on a Thursday, started... Continue reading

Hanging out/working... same thing really. This weekend I am doing photo and video for Cold Lake band, Realm & Sky in the Sound Extractor studios here in Edmonton.

So it has been 12 hours since my challenge has ended. I am pretty exhausted... (I slept a solid 8 hours again last night to catch up on precious sleep, but just feel mentally exhausted.) You probably know from my instagram/twitter or my previous blog post that I did not... Continue reading

THINKING ABOUT Future plans for something rad. I've briefly mentioned it MONTHS ago on my blog, forgot about it, and now starting the brainstorming process for it to get it started. It's a lot of work/learning but I am in it for the whole adventure. You should hear about it... Continue reading

So this is hour zero of this crazy challenge I had set out for myself! I have thankfully got rid of my lingering headache and tiny allergic reaction. But I am a little bit tired... I stayed up WAY too late last night watching The 100 (OMG SO GOOD!!!) and... Continue reading

My weekend was rather uneventful... I was kind of in a slump all weekend. Totally not motivated to do anything. (Hope that changes with the fresh start of this week) I have a bunch of projects that need finishing up! My goals this week are to finish my photo sessions... Continue reading

Last Friday I told you what my weekend plans were... (we are talking about the concert videography thing that I wanted to try out instead of photos at the show) So getting closer to the show I started getting nervous... I've (obviously) been to a show of their's before... (or... Continue reading

"Your dream job doesn't exist, you must create it..." This statement could not be any more true. I can't go apply anywhere for my dream job, but I sure can work hard and create it for myself! (Which I am actually in the process of working on at the moment)... Continue reading

Last month, Realm & Sky (A band from Cold Lake) played their first Edmonton show! I photographed Ben & Siobhan's wedding three years ago, so they asked if I would photograph their show (Uh...OF COURSE I WOULD!!! That's not even a question!) During their set (after I got the photos... Continue reading
