Inquisitive baby portrait
Best time for a family portrait In the Vancouver summer months, the best time for a family portrait is in the early evening. The long rays of light provide a beautiful warmth.

A butcher selling viscera in Mercado Juarez, Oaxaca City
Going on vacation isn’t about taking a break from my camera. That would be like taking a break from my eyes, my perspective.

Vancouver photographer, Trevor Jansen, stands in front of his photo gear
Your eye draws naturally towards faces, which is why portraits for social marketing are so important. Every marketing “how to” on every social platform makes getting a professional headshot one of the top five points. What this bullet point listicle loses is that this professional portrait should be more than just a map of your...

Devil May Wear | Fall Fashion 2013
Since we are officially into the fall weather, I figured it was time I posted this fall fashion shoot I shot for Devil May Wear.
