I’ve now got some photos up for sale at Fresh Cafe & Espresso Bar, a new coffee shop on 116 Street just south of Jasper (10038 – 116 Street). Go check them out and enjoy a coffee and amazing snacks and sandwiches.
You still have almost a week to see “Water”, my exhibit at the Stanley Milner Library. I’m really happy with it, and hope you all get to see it! If you don’t get a chance to go see the prints, you can see a poor substitute here: http://joelkoop.com/pwater.php
Photo taken with a Canon 5d, 150mm macro, at f2.8, 1.6 seconds. (This isn’t one of the photos up at Fresh, but it’s one I wanted to share at some point. You’ll have to go to Fresh to find out for yourself.)
I will be at the Stanley Milner Library this Saturday the 21st, from 2:00 to 4:00pm. I’d love to see you all there. Everything there is for sale (both on the walls and in the display cases), but has to stay up until the end of the month. Looking forward to it!
I now have a 14 prints up at the Stanley Milner Library. It’s a solo show and all the photos are in the main foyer between Second Cup and the Library. They will be up for the whole month of April, so I hope you all get a chance to check them out! I just finished hanging them all and I’m pretty happy with how they turned out!
More photos will be coming soon, but April is turning out to be really busy for me, so forgive me if the posts here are a little sparse.
Today’s post is brought to you by a cute and surprised mink (Neovison vison).
On Thursday, December 15th, I’ll be at the Daffodil Gallery for a few hours in the middle of the day. I may bring some small prints with me to augment the lovely gallery wraps and pendants they already have there. This is part of their 12 days of Christmas where artists will be in attendance.
Camrose is done and was a great success! Thanks to everyone who came out. I hope you all enjoy your prints and pendants!

I’ve got a new series up on the LCT Gallery website titled “Into the Sun”. I’ll post a teaser here, but check out the website to see the whole series. Also check out the other galleries (sorry, can’t link to them directly) from Aaron Pedersen and David Bloom – completely different, but both of them are really well done!
In addition to the Daffodil Gallery, you can now find my cards, pendants, and some smaller prints at the Tix on the Square store in Churchill Square!
More posts coming soon…
Just a reminder — I have two prints in the VAAA Open Photo Competition. It is this Thursday, August 25, 6-8pm at the Kasaa Gallery in the basement of the Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium ( 11455 – 87 Avenue ). I would love it if you stop by. There will be drinks, snacks, and a very wide variety of photographic styles to enjoy. All the artists will be there, and the results of the competition will be announced.
The show will continue until October 2nd, if you can’t make it for the opening.
Come take a look!
The Daffodil Gallery
This Saturday, August 13 from noon to 4pm is the opening for “Blooming“, a new show at the Daffodil Gallery. I’ve got two pieces in this show — one you’ve seen before if you’ve been to the gallery, and the other is new for this show. Unfortunately, I’m not going to be there for the opening, but even without me the gallery is a relaxing and enjoyable place to go and see new art.
Also coming up soon is the VAAA Open Photo Exhibition. The opening will be Thursday, August 25th from 6 to 8pm at the Kasaa Gallery in the Northern Jubilee Auditorium. I am excited to have two pieces in this show, which is a juried show open to all Alberta photographers. There should be quite a variety of photo styles there.
I may have to get a calendar up on the site to keep track of exhibitions and shows for those interested.
But where are all the photos from BC?
I’m getting there slowly. Everything else is pretty crazy right now, so they’ll start trickling out over the next week or two. To get started, here are some cracked rocks in Medicine Lake in Jasper National Park. This was taken after my first day on the road, which is always a very liberating experience.
First of all, I want to say how awesome folk fest was because of all of you — customers, fans, friends, family, and some amazing musicians who entertained me on my lunch breaks. This was by far my best sale ever.
Thanks to Leah for being there to cheerfully cover breaks for me and Anna, thanks to Liz and Nicole for being around and ready to lend a hand. Thanks to Aran for being a great new patron. Thanks to C. from Manitoba who was super excited about photography, and good luck with the underwater photography.
I enjoyed talking with so many of you, and it was interesting to see the sets of photos that people picked out. I might do a blog post yet showing some of these sets.
Since I can’t resist posting a photo, here’s a Canada Goose (Branta canadensis
) taken during my Wildlife Biodiversity and Ecology course field trip in Whitemud Park.
