Art Print: Awakened

"Awakened" is a new art print from the "Surreal Alberta" series inspired by the Every Child Matters movement surrounding Canada Day this year. Following the continued discovery of bodies at former residential schools around the country, this digital composite is reflecting a tide change in our awareness regarding this dark history.

A Canada Day Without Fireworks

In a long list of things not going to plan in 2020, the celebrations for Canada Day have been cancelled in numerous communities across the country. I figured we could still do with some fireworks, so put together this short video to mark the occasion. Happy 153rd Canada!

A Few Days of Exploring in Saskatchewan

It's been a few years since I was last in Saskatchewan to do some dedicated exploring. The motivation this time was to catch up with friends, which actually opened the door to play tourist for a change. From staying at some iconic hotels to checking out the new Remai Modern in Saskatoon to retracing my past steps at the University of Regina, the visit turned into a series of completely new experiences in a place that I had previously thought had become too familiar. 

What better excuse to explore and put some extra time on my Canada Day long weekend to use? Stay tuned as the new images debut in the Hey, Canada photo series.

Canada Day Fireworks in Medicine Hat, Alberta

For the last few years I've taken up the challenge to the film the Canada Day fireworks in Medicine Hat, Alberta to create and share my own edits of the experience. Why do I keep doing it, you might ask? Well, there are a few reasons actually.

It's tough to pass up the chance to put your own spin on something that you know will attract an audience.

Fireworks aren't the easiest thing to casually capture, so by putting a bit of time and thought into how I shoot and edit them, the clips have also always been a popular way to showcase my production company, Editing Luke through organic content. Not to mention, it's actually really fun to take the energy and action of the fireworks and curate it into a stylized edit that (hopefully) heightens the experience. Don't get me wrong, seeing the fireworks live is amazing, but shooting a variety of close-ups and wide shots actually gives you a different way of seeing the show even if you were there in person.  

This year I cut my footage into two parts to create shorter, more energetic clips of the Canada Day fireworks. Whether you were there or whether you're seeing them for the first time, I hope you enjoy these colourful highlights from Canada's 151st birthday captured over the Saamis Teepee in Medicine Hat, Alberta.

Canada Day 150 in Medicine Hat, Alberta

Celebrations for Canada's 150th made the Canada Day routine more lively and noteworthy across the country and in my hometown of Medicine Hat, Alberta this year. From the afternoon crowds in Kin Coulee Park to the evening crowds on the surrounding hills for the Canada Day fireworks, there was an undeniable energy in the air because of the Canada 150 milestone. Here are a few visual highlights I captured and shared throughout the day to mark this special occasion.

Last year I photographed the fireworks over the Saamis Teepee in my hometown of Medicine Hat, Alberta. The post was a hit and attracted thousands of viewers. This year I wanted to switch it up slightly, and focused on capturing some video of the experience. Here is a short video of the Canada Day fireworks over Medicine Hat, Alberta's most recognizable landmark.
