The Red Sheet Series

I am lucky to have grown up in one of the most beautiful places on earth, at the entrance to Wells Gray Provincial Park in Clearwater BC, where stunning landscapes and beautiful waterfalls are abundant. Because of this I am rather indifferent toward landscape photography. I still always photograph the landscapes I am in and enjoyed it enough to continue doing so. But I am a portrait photographer. I love photographing people, emotions, and the connections between people. Its pretty well the best thing ever. So when photographing beautiful landscapes I always feel like something is missing! This is when I decided that my landscapes were going to have dramatic subjects. I set on a mission to find the perfect dress for the focal point in my landscapes. The dress had to be able to fit everyone and anyone, had to pack into and look good after been stuffed into my backpack, and I am very picky about the colour. After being in Colombia for a wedding this past February, we traveled through many stunning landscapes, and the whole time Angus had to listen to me whine about how I had not yet found this specific piece of clothing. After a couple weeks I broke down and purchased three metres of red fabric instead. Best day ever!! First stop with the red sheet – Tyrona Parque in Colombia! One of the most beautiful beaches in the world. After testing it out a little bit myself I promptly met my first victim, Theresa (shes awesome), who thankfully did not just pass me off as a crazy lunatic, and was up for wrapping herself in the red sheet and scrambling over rocks and trees for some photos. After seeing the images on the camera I was stoked. The Red Sheet Series was born!! Yeeooww!! Since then I have brought the red sheet with me almost everywhere, getting some of the most bizarre looks from people near by, and it has brought my love of the outdoors and photography together once again. All this while creating beautiful images for some of the most interesting people I have met along the way. It has been a great adventure. Thank you to everyone who has allowed me to photograph them while wrapped in THE red sheet. I have truly enjoyed this project and it is not about to end 🙂
