29 Years Later

It had been 29 years since my mom had visited the Canadian Rockies. On that trip, it was my dad, my mom and myself. My brother was just a baby at that time so he stayed at my grandparents’ house. Fast-forward to 2015; my dad is no longer with us and my brother is an …

The Best Light for Landscape Photography

When I first started off shooting photos a decade ago, I naively believed what I’d read in the photography magazines and how-to books about how the best light for landscape photography was during the “magic hour” around sunrise and sunset so most of my photography reflected that. After a while though, I realized how limiting …

Canadian Rockies Photo Galleries

I just added two new photo galleries to my site for the Canadian Rockies (Jasper, Kootenay & Yoho NP) and Banff National Park photos. Images are available for licensing and as fine art photography prints. My Vancouver and Victoria photos from a few years ago have been selling consistently so hopefully that is the case …

Canada Goose Family

It was very windy out on this evening when the Canada Geese tried to retire for the evening. I’m sure some of the women out there that read my blog (like my mom) can relate to this Canada Goose family photo. This was the most unique thing that I witnessed during this trip and it …

Two Jack Lake

Two Jack Lake is a location that I’d like to photograph some more on my next visit. I saw a lot of potential here that I wasn’t quite able to figure out. I think if the water were calm that it would have been amazing. See more of my Banff National Park photos.

Vermillion Lakes

I spent 2.5 hours standing in this tight little space along the muddy Vermillion Lakes shoreline sandwiched between thick vegetation, in complete awe of the scene unfolding before me. Literally every second that passed by yielded a completely different composition. There are some scenes that require photographic vision to capture effectively and then there are …

Lake Minnewanka

Photographing in the Canadian Rockies requires a lot more persistence than my pictures might look. What this Lake Minnewanka photo doesn’t show is the all day of thick clouds and rain that preceded a partial clearing during “magic hour”. It can be easy to retire to a warm bed where it is dry after dinner …

Beauty in Death

I find a certain beauty to burned forests. As a society, we’re conditioned to think all fire is bad when in reality it’s a vital part of nature’s recycling process. When fire is caused by natural means then it can be beneficial, and as nature proves repeatedly, that life regenerates in burned areas. As a …

Marble Canyon

When photographing a scene even if there is a featured attraction, I always like to look around to see if there are any other aspects to the landscape that I can photograph. In this instance I looked behind away from Marble Canyon and Vermillion Peak in the background canyon my eye while contrasted with the …
