Short Film | Brandon’s 2013 Mitsubishi Evo X

So some of you may know that I originally got into photography through video work. I started out purchasing my first camera with the intention of filming my friends and I skateboarding. Over time, I began to explore many different types of photography. Now, 7 years later, I find myself going back to rediscover film making.

I don’t have much for experience, and I definitely don’t have the gear for it. So in this short film, I used what I have (my iPhone) and came up with this:

I definitely learned a lot from this. I put a lot of effort into research, planning, execution, and editing. I have a lot more to learn and I couldn’t be more excited! I’d love to make more videos like this, so if you are interested in collaborating, shoot me a message! Maybe soon I’ll upgrade to a better camera for videos.

Shouts to the YouTube channel, Cars Onboard for the main source of my inspiration. For anyone looking to start doing photography or cinematography, or anything for that matter, here is my advice to you;

If you want to get good at something, find something or someone that does whatever it is that you want to do, and does it well. Use them as your inspiration. Watch what they do, study their work, research and plan. Then, figure out what they do, how they do it well, and try to copy it and produce something similar. I’m not saying you should copy everything that they do, because that just makes your work a duplicate of theirs. But over time, you will learn things, get better and be able to use your own creative mind to change things and do things differently. As long as you learn from your actions, you will never lose. Keep trying, keep learning, and keep progressing.

Thanks for watching!


Mt. Baldy.

I started hiking during late fall last year and I’ve come to a conclusion that I’m addicted and have to do some more. This time Chloe, Natasha and I ventured out to Kananaskis on a beautiful (but windy), spring day to hike Mt. Baldy.

After a 0.7 km walk through the woods, we realized we took the wrong trail head and started the trail for Baldy Pass - apparently different from the Mt. Baldy hike. We turned around and found the proper trail head a bit further up the highway. This time we definitely knew we were on the right path as the trail proved to be all business and went straight up the mountain at a fair incline.

We made it up in just over an hour for some spectacular views over Barrier Lake.

Sunrise at Vermillion Lakes + Meeting New People

It’s been a while since I’ve updated this…but here goes!

Earlier, last week Andrew (@andrew_wiesner) contacted me on Instagram to shoot, as he was making a quick weekend trip to visit from Pittsburg, PA. We decided to hit up Vermillion Lakes for sunrise and meet up with a few other photographers (Zach @northern.fellow, Mike @mikesugianto, & Sonia @soniabrovko) from Calgary. I picked up Andrew from his Air BnB at around 4:45 am and took off to Banff.

We made it there in good time and soon met up with Sonia and Zach. Mike joined us shortly afterwards to sit back and enjoy the perfect view as the clouds lit up.

After, we casually ventured around to both Two Jack Lake and Lake Minnewanka. I’ll let the photos explain the rest.
