Fuji Superia 400 ~ The Canadian Drug Store Film

             When it comes to shooting film I would more often be drawn to professional films like Portra or  Ektar but they are not always the best when you just want to shoot for the sake of shooting.  Sunny days during the winter on Vancouver Island are far and few between so my wife and I took some time to wander though Rathtrevor Park just outside of Parksville. Below are just a few of the images I shot.  What is your favourite drug store variety film, or does your drug store even carry film any longer? 

Rathtrevor Park ~ Vancouver Island

             living in a Place like Vancouver Island feels like I have struck the photographic lottery. I have only just recently moved to the island and I am already amazed at the endless opportunities to capture beautiful scenes like you see below. Rathtrevor Park is no exception, only 30 minutes north of Nanaimo this park is easily accessible for young and old alike. With well travelled trails and beautiful beaches this place is a must visit destination when you are on Vancouver Island.

          Yes, we are moving! We will be packing up and getting ready to move to beautiful Vancouver Island (Nanaimo to be specific) over the next few months. We are incredibly eager to explore this amazing place, and excited to capture people and their special moments. I would like to extend a special thank you to all of our clients over the past several years and offer all GP area residents who might be traveling to the Island a special discount on a family or couples session. If you happen to be in our neighbourhood we would love to photograph you and your family in this stunning location. Message us for more details.
