Darryl Gittins has been a technology whiz for more than 20 years, even working in the high Arctic developing deep-sea submersibles. His office is a Christmas tree of wires, flashing lights, more than a dozen working computers and techno gizmos of all descriptions. Gittins, who now writes security-related content for a major software company, always takes precautions using wireless hot spots. “You can never be too careful,” says Darryl. Vince Klassen was born and raised in Victoria and has collaborated with Boulevard magazine since 1992. His commercial photographs have appeared in numerous national and international publications and his personal work has been exhibited at the International Photography Hall of Fame and Museum in Oklahoma City. While photographing the off-the-grid home on Prevost Island for this issue, he was amazed with the owners’ tremendous vision to live off the land while maintaining treasured comforts. Gary McKinstry, originally from Toronto, has been a commercial photographer in Victoria for 25 years, 20 of those for Boulevard. “I like to keep it more about my eye — the lens — the light and, of course, the subject and not about my computer,” says Gary of his approach to photography. He also appreciates the opportunities that he has to meet creative people during the course of his assignments. Look for Gary’s photos throughout the magazine: you’ll always find him capturing the essence of our Secrets & Lies subject. Robert Moyes is a Victoria native with a long-standing interest in the arts, including the arts of fermenting, brewing and distilling: he put this passion to work researching this month’s Libations column on the new trend in creating “artisan cocktails.” Robert also expertly scours the Victoria and area arts scene to bring readers our popular Front Row event round-up. He has been a journalist and freelancer for over 25 years, and is the author of two guidebooks.

Julie Nixon cracks open the door to the room that she carries about inside her, revealing just a little part of herself in the feature article about tales of reinvention. Much like the remarkable people she interviewed for this story, Julie has recognized that she has denied a true passion that wants to bubble to the surface. With her supportive husband and ever-amusing canine cheering her on — and home renovations finally complete — she is ready to embark on a new career. VB
