Due to work, I arrived late to Chris Ho’s CD Release Party at the Victoria Event Centre on January 18, 2013… but I managed to catch the last 4-5 songs. I decided to try out the Canon 50mm f1.8 lens in a concert setting, here’s some photos I took.

20 Magmazing Local Artist Moments of 2012

What a year it’s been in the Victoria Music Scene. It’s definitely a busy year for me. It seems like every other week I was out shooting local bands at Sugar, Lucky, Upstairs, and various other live music venues in Victoria… and that was only a fraction of the gigs I was invited to. Many I had to miss due to my regular work hours. I’ve shot so many local gigs I decided to open up a YouTube channel and website dedicated to local artists.

Last year I had a Top 10 countdown of my favourite videos shot of local artists. This year it’s increased to a Top 20 to showcase as much of the city’s talent as I can.

Victoria Music SceneThis year local favourites released new albums, a couple placed in the top 5 at this year’s Peak Performance Project and new bands took the scene by storm.

So here’s my Top 20 Magmazing Local Artist Video Moments I shot in 2012 brought to you buy!


If you don’t want to go through the countdown one by one, below are links to all 20 posts on each video I’ve chosen. Just click the images.


Quadra Village Day 2012

Today I decided to check out the 10th annual Quadra Village Day in Victoria. Three bands/artists I’ve shot before were performing at this neighbourhood community event. You couldn’t ask for better weather. the skies were blue, the sun was out and the temperatures were mild.

Tremble Aspen, Chris Ho, and Carmanah were the bands that took the stage and in between them community dance groups put on showcases. I’ll be posting video from the bands soon, but in the meantime enjoy some photos I took when I wasn’t recording video!
