Brian Van Wyk photography

2 years

On March 26th 2010 I bought my first DSLR (yes, I sound obsessed, and yes, that would be a very accurate assumption). This means I just had my anniversary. I had no idea that in my second year of adventuring through the world of photography that I would see the things I saw, and be able to collect those experiences they way I did.

I found myself at wedding ceremonies. I found myself in that tight space between Rock Stars and thousands of fans. I found myself amidst the chaos of the Vancouver riots. I found myself observing people in love, in disorder, in triumph, celebration, hopelessness...ecstasy. I found myself observing society. I found myself making friends and taking risks. I found myself in places I never thought I would.

I found myself.

I firmly believe that the things we see and the experiences we are exposed to shape our thought and our identity. Photography allows me to preserve those integral moments in life. Furthermore, it allows me to be a part of so much more than I could ever foresee. Nothing has taught me more about life than this rollorcoaster ride which photography is taking me on. Thank you for coming along.

Terron and Mariko

Right from the start, I could sense that Terron and Mariko were wildly in love with each other. They told me stories about how they met, trials and triumphs in their past, what they saw in their future. I feel honoured to have documented a part of this couples' life together. Now...I can't go back in time and photograph all the glorious moments that these two have had together, but at the very least, I am able to tell this part of their life through these pictures:

If you enjoyed these pictures, you'll likely enjoy the next few sets I have lined up to post on my blog. You can easily keep up to date with all my photographic ramblings and facebook exclusives by subscribing to my Facebook Page.

Emily and Craig (second-shooting)

I must confess, it has been quite some time since my last blog post. I have a lot coming your way soon, though, so don't give up on the blog just yet. When I'm not shooting this year, I'm second-shooting. Either way, I have gotten a lot of shooting done in the past few weeks and I hope to bring it all to you soon. In this post's case, I second-shot for the wonderful Jesse Holland. I had a really fun time editing these images because they reminded me how awesome the day really was.
