Jamie Inman

My journey with photography began with the kindness of many generous people. People who gave me their support, knowledge, trust and even my first camera.

Feelings of Fright and Fatigue Fuse Fernie

October isn’t the only month dedicated to fright anymore, the past 19+ months have been a tornado of unpredicted scares. I could rattle on (or rant on…) for paragraphs, but we’ve all lived through a different experience. The one thing uniting us in this ever-changing world, is our fatigue. The constant change of rules from a global scale to the rules of entering a grocery store. We’re tired. We’re frightened. We have no idea what the future holds. But we’re together through it all.

Grouped Contacts

Digital amnesia grows daily in our lives. Once upon a time, I could remember every single person’s phone number that I knew. Now I can barely remember my phone number. Once I put a phone number into my phone, I promptly forget it.

Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway

An old friend of mine used to talk about what he called ‘true myth.’ It was his way of describing what teachers have known for millennia: that a story can carry truth way deeper into our hearts than a rational argument. We can hear something and know it intellectually, but until we feel it, we don’t truly integrate it. When true myths resonate, they are imaginary vehicles that scoop up wisdom and unload it at the core of our being.

Nell Cline-Smith

I have always listened to music because my mum and dad play it all the time, but what really got me into it was going to shows. Our family regularly went to music festivals and when I was three, my parents took me to a festival in Wales called Green Man. I was immersed in music all day every day, and while I can’t remember much in the way of specifics, I remember being there and seeing lots of people and hearing lots of music.

The Gains and Losses of Our Collective Wanting

In this present age of languish it seems as though our modern world has paralyzing effects, leaving us stagnant and incapable, frightening our very states of being. This type of fear and separation is not new in our history but perhaps to me or you, therefore my quest for enlightenment must continue...

Enola Holmes

Sherlock Holmes is one of England’s most famous cultural exports. This genius detective was created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, British medical doctor and writer. Doyle was a prolific writer whose works included fantasy and science fiction stories, plays and historic novels. He created the character of Sherlock Holmes in 1887 for A Study in Scarlet, the first of four novels and fifty-six short stories about Holmes and Dr. Watson.

Backup Best Practices

To be fair, some of the threats have lessened to a degree. If you have an iPhone and turned on iCloud backup then you at least have two copies of your photos and possibly other files on your phone. The challenge with iCloud that I keep seeing is that people run out of free space and then start deleting things rather than create more space or look for an alternative backup.

Grow Up You, Grow Up Me

Every artist knows that having the right tools gives you the best chance at creating a successful piece of art. Painting oils with water colour brushes does not give good results. Carving a linocut with a butter knife is useless. Additionally, the proper tool wielded improperly can be dangerous.

Mind Control

It’s not every day that I discover a collaborator like Niki Sombrowski. I first met Niki as a high school senior, working hard on his education, playing Junior B hockey for the Fernie Ghostriders. Once his season was over, he was looking forward to playing elsewhere.
