The Perks of Harvest Season

Eat Local!
It's one of the best time's to eat local here in the Okanagan.  Also not a bad time to do a little test of the new studio setup in the new office! All of this from the awesome Kelowna Farmer's Market where you can look for me as a vendor in the summer of 2014!

Switching Teams: Canon / Nikon

If you go back a few years in posts here, you may have come up to one titled Canon vs. Nikon or something to that extent where I may have talked about how they are in direct competition and generally everyone goes with one or the other.  Now it is a slightly different title "Canon / Nikon" or Canon over Nikon, because that is what I really will be telling people now.

Read a little further to see the little big reason why;

It's Fall in the Okanagan!

A beautiful fall day, Okanagan style. Click for bigger picture!

Made it out for a little recreational photo walk this morning to a nearby winery and this scenic overlook at Cedar Creek Dog Park - a great photo stop for most any time of day, in any weather!

There is another photo after the link!

Momentary Lapse in Time

Taking a second to share a couple quick time lapses I've created recently, it will only take a moment of your time!

This first one is a pretty nice sunset that I actually got out pretty late for on the evening of September 8 2013. We had a little picnic and I left this run in the background while I ate my kabobs and admired it without looking through a viewfinder.

Kelowna Crafter's Market

Chris Gardiner Photography stall at the Farmer Market in Kelowna
In July of 2013 we started up a vendor's stall at the Kelowna Farmer and Crafter's Market every Wednesday and Saturday Morning we could make it!  The entire thing was Steph's idea really, I just had the photos - haha.
Read on to see what we needed, and the initial investment to get a small stand up.

I'm On TV!

Last time I titled a post "Look I'm On TV!" it was for a silly still photo I 'fabricated' for the Rick Mercer Report.

This time it's for another Canadian Program, but it features all of my own work - a simple scenic timelapse from the shores of Lake Okanagan.  Hit the link to see the original footage, and a video-tearsheet from where it was used, and how you can find it.

We Ride : A Snowboard Video

Steph floating off of a Snow Ghost at Big White

I've been going hard at the video lately as it has proved to be a new challenge for me and allows all new tricks and techniques.
Earlier this year  I shared a quick two minute video on YouTube which is my first video to reach one thousand views and it did it within 24 hours!!

We're Moving!

The Cave and Basin, Banff National Park 
The office is in a state of transition after this extremely busy summer of 2013. We've decided to move on to bigger and better, and so we've found the ideal location that will allow us to be more efficient and productive with our time.
