Photography for UVic Humanities

I’ve been doing photography for UVic Humanities for the last few months. I’ve done about a dozen events and portraits as of now. It’s been a great opportunity to sharpen my skills as a photographer and check out some very cool events that I would have had no idea about otherwise. Here are a few of my favourite shots:

This Side of West launch

I’m the drama editor for UVic literary journal This Side of West. We recently launched our fourteenth issue at The Copper Owl. There were readings, drinks, and all around merriment. Here are a few photos I took at the event:

I had a great time being part of the team this year. What a great bunch of folks! I’ll be staying on next year and we have big plans for TSOW in 2016 so stay tuned! Keep up to date with us on our site, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

 

Uvic & oil

students work in big oil

Like most every British Columbian, many of my friends and family members work in the oil industry. This crunchy granola province finds many of its youngsters and tradespeople flooding into Alberta to make quick money. This love/hate relationship with the oil industry is something I barely explore in this piece. Think about it though. It’s a weird thing.
