About Me

Welcome, my name is Travis.

After 20 years of serving my Country in the Canadian Armed Forces, I decided I needed a change. My first year as a civilian, I decided to take a one-year Applied Information TechnologyMy Photo Course through ITI “Information Technology Institute”.

Following that I spent about one-year working full-time designing and producing mugs, t-shirts, canvas prints, key chains, sail covers, etc. In fact, you can see the hoodie I designed with my sailboat logo in the photo to the right.

Transforming photos into gifts makes the most precious memories come to life. The possibilities are endless, from babies first step to high school prom to the wedding day and every milestone in between. Post production photographs can say it all.

The inspiration for “Say It With Photographs” was born from my desire to share with the world what my family and friends have been doing for years. I would like to give you the inspiration to put all your ideas and possibilities into works of art and keepsakes that can be passed on from generation to generation.

So use your imagination and allow us to make your memories last a lifetime.

By all means, enjoy the site and leave us a blog.

    Your site is just wonderful my friend. Very professional and attractive to first sight. I will be visiting often to gain inspiration and teachings on photography, as I love taking images especially from nature.
