I am very excited today to have 7 of my pieces call the Hollyburn Country Club in West Vancouver home.
I have both Michaela and Lisa to thank for this! (Thanks ladies! Very much appreciated).
Packaging them up was a bit of a marathon and unfortunately, my 8’ Vancouver Skyline was left at home. The truck was full. It simply would not fit without crushing something underneath.
All images on display, as normal are printed on aluminum. I am pretty happy with the placement and thankful for those that helped make this happen. Just to package the pieces was a full roll and a half of 3M Packaging tape.

A familiar vantage point for many. Typically I do not take many pictures during daylight, however this one fits perfectly to bring out the texture within the trees in the foreground and to be able to see all the freighters lining up to come into the harbor.
Print limit: 10

I am very happy to announce the addition of another limited edition piece (6 prints total), Fire and Ice (103) to my gallery. Fire and Ice was shot up toward Cypress Falls after a long cold snap through the Vancouver Area in early February, 2014. With temperatures dipping down to -10, this allowed the majority of the waterfall to freeze. The image was taken on the last day of the cold weather. Had I waited one more day, everything would have been melted due to the heavy warms rains that settled in.
The hike to get to the location was a little treacherous. The trail was not heavily traveled, very narrow and with a very significant drop off to one side. Carrying all my camera gear and tripod made things a little trickier balance wise. Normally, I am able to jam my tripod into the ground when I require stability, however due to the ground being completely frozen, my tripod would only bounce and slide off the surface. Again, not making it great for traveling on.
When we reached the shooting location, I was expecting a nice big flat platform with wire fencing. This could not have been further from what I was expecting. I did not expect a slightly sloped 5 foot by 6 foot area with a drop off on all sides except the side we came down. This would make for a little more of an unnerving shoot. The sun created an amazing display of warm lighting, bringing out a little bit of light in the icicles on the left side. Below the falls is a gathering of ice (not foam), which had started to gather as the ice fell over the falls.

I am happy to welcome a new addition to the gallery, which is now posted in my Gallery under “Sunrise & Sunsets” (http://www.michaeliwasaki.com/galleries/sunsets/#.UvkU4rRDfOM).
Shot from West Vancouver, the fine art image was captured in early February toward the end of an arctic front leaving and a pacific front coming in which you can see by the clouds. Wind gusts started to kick up with gusts upward of 30km/hr and below freezing temperatures. The lone Juniper jets out from the rocks looking off to the amazing sunset from West Vancouver.
This fine art photographic print, limited to 15 prints (+2 artist proofs), and printed on aluminum framed in an Italian made olive tree veneer.
Edition is signed, numbered and includes a stamped certificate of authenticity.
Very excited to have my book arrive today, the place where I get all of my equipment (http://www.photoexpert.com) and printing of my book did (as usual), an AMAZING job! Thanks Brad and everyone there! If you are looking for equipment, not only do they have AMAZING prices, however they also have the BEST customer service and friendly staff, bar none! And I also love their “online catalog shopping”. For me being in Canada, it is a much more economical method than Adorama, Broadway or B&H…
Unfortunately, my books will not be sticking around long, as they are all slated for Gallery homes…
An image I shot from a doors off helicopter off the West Coast of Maui. The image captures perfectly, the turquoise clear blue waters and the lone catamaran sailing off into the distance. This was the second of two helicopter tours over a couple of the local islands on my hunt for waterfalls and amazing landscape opportunities. This and a few other images have been added to my online gallery HERE.
It was pretty neat to see that Global TV News has posted my image (amongst some other wonderful images) on their Facebook Page!
