Valerie St-Arnaud: Turn your Palm Towards the Light – e101s3
episode 101season3 Turn your Palm Towards the Light Todays Show is with Founder and owner of Calling Mountains Productions, Valerie St-Arnaud. Growing up in Quebec offered a wealth of inspiration but as she grew older there was always something calling her away from the city lights and when she arrived in Whistler, BC in 2013 she realized it had been the mountains all along. Valerie has her degree in Communication and Marketing from the University of Ottawa specializing in media studies. In 2012 she won the Ottawa international film festival and that’s when her passion for film started. She is known to bring the feels right to your screen. She is passionate about her art form but even more about her clients. You will find her capturing memories and chasing the light in and around the Sea to Sky corridor. The mountains called her here and now she is returning the favor. See you in the mountains… They are calling! some of Valerie St-Arnaud’s work BREAK THREE: (5:38) let’s just dig into this a little bit. This was in 2012 the criteria for the submissions are things like, must be live streaming (no download required) language (English and French or French with subtitles), presentation copies, your typical deadlines, transportation and insurance to ship materials, selection process, now if you’re selected your requirements for type of file, sound quality, bios, photos, payment for submission, renumerations, and the different juries things like short film, international and children’s which are judged by children, pretty cool hey. We get into more detail about this shortly.. More of Valerie’s work…can’t you feel the emotion in these photos? WHAT A NEAT WAY TO MAKE SOMEONE COME TO LIFE AND LIFE BREAK FIVE: If you haven’t listened to my episode with Valerie Butters do, she is so casual and creative. Also Pemberton is located in British Columbia approx 160km from Vancouver, only 25km from the beautiful ski resort Whistler. This place is for people who love winter for the snow sports, cross country skiing, back country skiing, ice fishing, snowmobiling and more…that fresh mountain air, can you just feel that – my favourite feeling is that! BREAK SIX: I originally interviewed Valerie St Arnaud back in April of this year so at the start of covid here in Western Canada…we did the interview over Skype, she in her tank top, and ball cap, me in my favourite chair sitting cross legged…wanting to know her secrets to film, photography and creating these incredible memories in still and motion… BREAK SEVEN: the basic rules for operation of a drone when you don’t have a licence – which is most of us – the drone must be under 250 grams in weight, there’s very specific areas that you are allowed to fly this tiny vessel so check your local regulations – Val here is so much to have someone who’s fully liscenced to help her with her videos as when you take the time to stop by you’ll be amazed at what she captures. BREAK EIGHT: did you catch that slight tip she gave us – is you shoot your image and it’s blown out or too bright because of the sunny day…change it to black and white and voila you have a great photo! BREAK NINE: chasing the light is her motto – did you catch that tip put the palm of your hand and if it shows shadows move until the light is brighter – boom you got good light on your subject! BREAK TEN: get confidence, get creative and gain confidence.. BREAK TWELVE: wow what a story. You know I think this is something that we all need to hear, even tho we are here to do a job weather it be me podcasting or this Val in her specialty we will run into people that are critics and want to be heard in an opposing manner. Life is full of stories and here’s one that had made it’s mark on Val – she will always remember this women, who in the end gave Val more strength in the end to own her craft. BREAK FIFTEEN: It seems so long ago when I interviewed her – and we are still even more heavily effected by the corona virus. Obviously the wedding photographers will be effected and who wanted to have a wedding with the new rules of just 10 people at this very moment in Nov when I wrote these show notes. BREAK SIXTEEN: if you’re not a wine drinker you can skip this part…but BC is known in canada for their amazing wines, grapes like no other place in canada and their wines have a special classification of wines with distinction meaning 100 percent of the grapes come from bc – which is incredible and shows the abundance of the volume of grapes available for these saught after wines. BREAK SEVENTEEN: she has so much depth to her personality, lives life to the fullest and captures so many memories for herself and her clients. She’s diverse running her business that crossed many business types, she’s smart and grounded. Yep we could be friends… FIND HER SHOW LINKS and pictures of the images we chatted about today – check these out! BREAK EIGHTEEN: MUSIC Bonding river media – first nations media recording languages End – well that was such a refreshing interview, she’s so lively and neat to speak with, I can’t wait to interview her again, saving the indigenous languages… Lilwat Home – First Voices As always visit my show notes for the images and links to this awesome guest Valere St.- Arnaud from Pemberton British Columbia and check her our instagram page of Calling Mountains and her website Callingmountains.ca Until next time, where a mask… Follow Me: Website @ ValerieMoss.ca Instagram @ValerieJMoss Facebook @VSMoss YouTube @ValerieJMoss Pinterest @VJMoss The show music is call ‘Girl’ by Text me Records and Leviathe The cover art, storytelling and production is by me, Valerie Moss.

She’s An Angler (p2)
s2e96p2 Toni Topilka – Fisherwomen – Fisher Sister – as my guest – Fly Fishing! Amber Ramsay – Fisherwomen – Fisher Sister – as my guest – Fly Fishing! ABOUT Todays show uniquely named She’s An Angler and is all about fly fishing – such a different type of hobby than what’s in my wheelhouse of CREATE but when I get to know more from my two friends about this outdoor hobby I wanted them on the show today and you’ll see why this fly fishing hobby (for women) is becoming popular & how these two caught the bait! BIOS Amber: Welcome Amber Ramsay to the Show a mother of two from a small town in SK originally but moved to Calgary many years ago. She started fly fishing by taking a lesson from Jim and Lynda McLennan – something she always wanted to do…I’ve known Amber for over 20 years. She’s also a top real estate agent and loves her work. BIO Toni: Welcome Toni Toplika to the show who’s been fishing since she could hold a fishing rod but added fly fishing only 2 years ago after going the Calgary Women’s Fly Fishing Club meet up – this is where she met Amber. I’ve know Toni for several years working on an enormous project together in our own fields and being some of the few women on this job – we became confidents and fast friends. Toni Topilka is on the board of directors for the not-for-profit Calgary Women Fly Fishers, and a member of the not-for-profit Hook and Hackle club in Calgary, Alberta. An avid angler since very young, Toni has fished many waters in Canada including Haida Gwaii and Sicamous in British Columbia, various lakes and rivers throughout Alberta including the Bow river, the Oldman and Livingstone rivers, also still waters in Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario. After a lifetime of spin-cast fishing, at the age of 50, Toni bravely took up a flyrod in 2018 after joining the CWFF club and with the encouragement of the membership, caught her first trout with a fly on the annual club campout at the Oldman river. Since then she has learned to tie flies and is eager to teach new club members how to tie their own flies at club meetings. The post She’s An Angler (p2) appeared first on Valerie Moss.

Black Cats & Magic Crystals
…another audiobook Wicca Magic s2e94 Wicca Magic: the starter kit: a beginner’s guide to start practicing wicca herbal magic, crystal magic, and candle magic. This is the second book I’ve narrated with this topic of Wicca and honestly I found them very interesting. I wouldn’t say I’m a religious person but I do believe there’s a higher being than just us humans, I also believe in protecting the plants and animals around me (my hamster is going on 5 and my cat is going on 19) – as well as being kind to nature, growing plants and food. When you think of Wicca you’ll likely think of the sensationalized roles Wicca’s play in movies like a bad luck black cat or satanism, but truly it’s a nature based religion reflecting on old traditions of paganism, spirituality and things like mid-wifery. I did find this book and the other Wicca book interesting to ready so I hope I’ll teach you a little something today about this nature based religion Introduction to Wicca Magic, take a listen Chapter 1 Wicca General Overview: What it is – PioneersChapter 2 Wicca Herbal Magic: Herbalism, basic herbs and teas and herbal baths like to cleansing psychic channelsChapter 3 Wicca Candle Magic: The most in-depth chapter: The Power of Fire, roles of colours, candle fragrances, getting ready for spells, preparing your sacred alter, personal elements, candle magic, love and money spells, help to feel your best spells, how to charge your candlesChapter 4 Wicca Crystal Magic What are Crystals? Charging them, crystal elixir bath spall and clarity. Conclusion to Wicca Magic, take a listen- here’s chapter 4 all about crystal magic, what they are, charging them and more. What did you think? Interested in learning more, there’s a link to this book in my show notes and if you have a moment leave me a comment or a rating in audible.
