A few years ago I borrowed a friend’s car for a road trip. As I wound my way up the Kootenay Pass, the only music available was a stack of unmarked, burned CDs jammed between the seats. As I cycled through those discs each new track was an adventure.

‘Stories from the Shadows’ is a compilation of photos taken during my time working at The Free Press, from 2016 to 2019.

The title of the gallery represents a characteristic that all chosen subjects share – humility. Inspired by them, I brought their stories out of the shadows and in turn, allowed others the chance to be inspired as well.

These people are humble folk, and do not live to boast about their accomplishments. For this I respect them greatly.

Knowing Mike Bull is a lot like arriving at an amusement park with an unlimited amount of ride tickets clenched tightly in your sweaty palm. It’s thrilling, wild, and full to the brim with unadulterated joy.
