Vancouver-based photographer Kamil Bialous recently photographed his hometown for a JW Marriott Magazine cover story. 

This was a really fun travel story to shoot because despite having a more typical travel story shot list of restaurants, places of interest, sights, and personalities for portraits, I was also given a lot of freedom to explore and think and look in unrestricted ways, in that I was looking for an atypical cover image.

Kamil built in significant time around the shoot to explore Vancouver with his camera, getting acclimated to the architecture and nature to find interesting locations and abstractions. The assigning editors wanted to make sure the photos included the natural aspects that are prominently integrated into the city.

A large part of the edit ended up being natural scenes abstracted, something I like to personally photograph anyway - the intersections of urban and nature. I'm so glad to have been pushed to look beyond the very obvious in Vancouver.
