It’s been nearly ONE WHOLE YEAR since I may have shot a live show!
After taking photos of incredible artists for 5 or 6 years straight – I needed a break. I guess like most creatives a break is sometimes necessary to rediscover what you like again and if I should even continue doing photography or explore other medias. I was a little bit burnt out, to be honest.
Opening for CHRIS HO‘s album release was MIKAILA TOMBE whom I’ve never heard of before (being out of touch with the music scene for over a year – I haven’t kept up with a lot of bands/artists like I used to) hails from Nanaimo, BC.
Decided to head to Whytecliff Park today with my buddy, Adrian. We left a little later than I would have liked as I usually leave around 10/11am to beat the traffic and avoid how busy the park would be.
First thing I did and knew I wanted to do was fly Pooka around town! (well parts of a general area). Considering it was an epic failure flight yesterday (you can watch that video it’s titled “I CAN’T BELIEVE I DID THAT”) after I got off the ferry and understand why I wanted REDEMPTION.
I started out at Cadboro Bay (Gyro Park) (5 minutes away)
