Finding pottery in British Columbia's Caribou Range | Back To The Land

On a not so particular day in May 2016, the search for people from small towns and remote areas continues. This next story and subject come from a place in British Columbia’s Caribou Range. An area of beauty that is nothing short of breathless. After recently getting hitched in the previous Fall, to the woman of my dreams, I asked my partner in crime to join me on this next leg of Back To The Land to Northern British Columbia…

Another random encounter in BC's Kootenays

Another random encounter in BC's Kootenays

In the last week of September 2017, my wife and I decided to do a quick eight-day road trip to the West Kootenays; two reasons, explore some new areas of British Columbia and secretly I wanted to photograph more people for my Back to The Land project. My wife continues to give me evil eyes if I don’t even humour the idea of bringing her along.

How driving around aimlessly led me to meet an 11 year old that lives on a commune.

As I continue to catch up on blog posts from May of 2015 I leave you with a chance encounter from the British Columbia Kootenays. I met Raphael while taking a short pit stop in the town of Slocan which sits directly on the south end of Slocan Lake. If you ever get a chance to visit this part of Canada, I highly recommend driving HWY 6 between Upper Arrow Lake and Slocan Lake as the landscapes will leave you breathless. As I pulled into a gravel parking lot

A 12 year old surfer from Tofino winning surfing competitions

When you think of Canada you may think of hockey, cold winters, mountains, and really friendly people (or at least I do); you don’t think of surfing. Obviously Canada isn’t known for producing world-class surfers on the big stage, however our waves are starting to take notice especially in a places like Tofino. If you have ever visited Tofino
