One of my major excuses for not starting a photography business sooner than I did was because I felt like there were no good places to take photos in Salmon Arm.

Jessica Whitaker is an amazing photographer and educator who teaches all about taking a fresh look at our surroundings, and that you can take good photos in your own backyard.

These images were inspired to have an urban and California vibe (especially the ones with the clear blue sky). I wanted them to feel edgy, yet fun. Pushing myself to make Salmon Arm look like California was a fun challenge.
Here is what we captured:
