Got commisioned to fly into Castlegar to shoot the german papermill giant Zellstoff Celgar's Castlegar mill over two days in August. I absolutely love the diversity my profession allows me, with my work ranging from advertising to industrial, as two assignments are rarely the same. 

This editorial assignment had me follow journalist Sascha Borree to Salt Spring island to capture content for the german publication Macher. The assignment consisted of shooting content over two consecutive days for two articles. The topics - How to build an emergency shelter in the woods capable of keeping you warm in crappy conditions and how to build an earth oven to cook the fish and root vegetables you caught with your bare hands...somehow....miraculously. Not only was it a blast to shoot, but also a couple of very valuable skills to learn. You never know right!

Had the pleasure of meeting and photographing Joe Vitale (yes...the guy from the movie 'the secret'), and listen to his sage life advice during the filming of the documentary 'One Life No Regrets' by local documentary film maker Patrick Stark.

Peter Holst was commissioned to photograph branding portraits for DBM Law. The task involved capturing the leadership team at various Tri-City area landmarks.

Love Food Hate Waste.

'Love Food Hate Waste' print campaign for Metro Vancouver. The main challenge with this fun campaign was to find talent who displayed facial features which would connect them visually to a type of food. Thankfully soup was not on the menu...phew.

Campaign to run across multiple provinces.
