Robert Marlow has navigated the rapid evolution of photographic art since 1981. He specializes in straightforward studio and beach photography for families, capturing images "that people will want to use" with his simple, modern aesthetics and eye for classical composition and lighting. Making his subjects feel at ease, he draws out natural expressions that highlight their personalities through varying sessions, resulting in images of fun and goofy families, a newly engaged couple's tender embrace, or a tasteful close-up of Dad's baby bump. In 2007, he hired on photographer Heather Jean, who supplements Robert's skill with families and children with a dynamic take on actors' headshots and modelling photography.
At Hog Shack Cook House the pit masters smoke their meats for 6 to 24 hours to bring out the tangy flavour that characterizes authentic Kansas City barbecue. Though taking its cue from KC, the menu plays host to a wide variety of dishes including Cajun chicken penne and pulled pork tacos. Traditional beef ribs and house-smoked brisket keep things classic as servers dish out heaping portions and bartenders fill glasses with one of more than 70 craft beers. By keeping the suds flowing, sauces slathered, and tuning the TVs to the big game or ultimate infomercial reel, the barbecue gurus foster a festive environment while adhering to the sensibilities of Southern and Midwestern hospitality.

Named Vancouver's best wedding photographers in 2009, 2010, and 2011 by Georgia Straight readers and listed as one of the 25 most inspiring Canadian photographers in Weddingbells Magazine, Blue Olive Photography's married shutterbug team Reilly and Miranda Lievers has expertly framed families, couples, and kids for more than 9 years. In between publishing their work and presenting lectures and instruction to photography peers, the Lievers set up shoots at clients' homes or locations of their choice to capture each subject's individuality. They also assist their patrons throughout each step of the process by dispensing tips on clothing, pre-session preparation, and how to advance from bunny ears to elephant ears. The Lievers rendezvous with customers for postshoot image-review meetings, where they can scrutinize each image and decide which shots suit Blue Olive's line of pictorial products, such as gallery wraps, custom-designed holiday cards, and gift books. In addition to a signature 8"x12" print, Blue Olive Photography grants half-price discounts for all returning patrons as well as s?ances to retrieve any camera-snatched souls.
