2014 you've been great!

by Michael Bradley


Well, another year has past and gone. I've neglected my blog for the better part of 2014 as my adventures have taken me away from updating my own personal site. This past year has seen a lot of traveling, work and self discovery. My business partner, Peter Aziz, and I started Pixel Motion Films which services the corporate and commercial sector for film production. We've had tremendous success in 2014 and we have tons of plans this year to really maximize our work and love for what we do. 2014 was also a great year for traveling for me. I was able to travel to places such a Ireland, Ottawa, Montreal, Vegas, French Guiana and Martinique just to name a few! It's been such a blessing to be able to do what I love every day with work and travel on top of that! I'm really excited for 2015 and whatever this year may bring.

Below are a few photos from my adventures of 2014. Here's to another great year!

Winter finally came

by Michael Bradley in


We finally got a decent amount of snow this year, so I decided to take a trip into my front yard (AKA The bog). I love the juxtaposition and contrast between the snow and sun. The trees helped create an enchanting effect with light streaks that seemed to spotlight my path throughout the forest. Despite my distaste for snow, it really  does creates amazing photo oportunities. Check out the gallery below to see what I'm talking about!


No expectations.

by Michael Bradley in


My local surroundings have been fueling my creative drive lately . The fresh and exhilarating moments found in the serene landscapes of the lower mainland give me a feeling of euphoria when it's just me and my camera. My favorite moments are when I have nothing else to do on a weekday afternoon and I get a chance out of my busy schedule to take a drive with no expectations. In having no particular expectations,  I find that I take my favorite photographs. I have nothing to live up to or abide by. All I have to do is open to my eyes to the landscape and take it in.

New road, new possibilities.

by Michael Bradley


If you live in Delta you might have noticed a new little road that connects hwy 1 to Tsawwassen. And if you really know what I mean, then you'll realize that this new little road is actually HUGE and is a tremendous improvement to the infrastructure in the local community. One thing that this road (hwy 17) means to me though, is the new opportunities for locations to photograph. It allows easy access into the large unscathed end of Burns Bog, as well as a plethora of industrial activity which is also very interesting to document. After visiting a part of hwy 17 earlier this morning to catch the sunrise, I realized that this may be one of my favorite routes to photograph for the next little while. I challenge you to try out the new route and see if anything inspires you. Just be careful of all those big trucks passing you by on the highway though ;)

The photo below is a perfect example of untouched natural beauty that is Burns Bog.

Same view, different location.

by Michael Bradley


I couldn't help myself, I have a fixation of photographing Mt. Baker.

Maybe because it's easy, or inspiring, or unique, or maybe it's just beautiful no matter where you're at. My parents have always took notice of this monstrous mountain viewable in so many different locations in the lower mainland. They've always made sure to voice their opinion over the years on how beautiful it is every time they see it. Now that I'm older/ a photographer/ not some snot nosed kid, I finally realized what they've been talking about. It's amazing how photographing this mountain can keep up it's continuity no matter where you view it. The two bottom photos were taken about 90km apart from each other, but somehow Mt. Baker still maintains it's dominance.

The top photo was taken using a Canon 7D with a EF 70-200 2.8 lens while the bottom photo was taken using a Canon 5D MK II with a Nikon 300mm 4.5 lens.
