March 2017 Desktop Wallpapers

February 27th, 2017|

The wallpapers I’ve selected for march are all from a single sunrise storm at Lake Louise. In January, I arrived at the lake during a heavy snowfall. I almost ducked inside for coffee, admitting defeat before even attempting a single frame. Instead, I setup and waited just in case the weather abated. Luck prevailed. The […]

February 2017 Desktop Wallpapers

January 30th, 2017|

Nearly a month ago, I wrote that I would travel less and adventure more often in 2017, so I wanted my February 2017 desktop wallpapers to show off my favorite Boulder Hut ski photography.

Although it’s only one month into the year, I’m already living up to half my resolution. I skied a lot in January, […]

Apps Photographers Use

January 5th, 2017|

As a photographer, I use my smartphone all the time. It’s not only my go-to point and shoot camera while traveling, but also my mobile office. I use a variety of apps that allow me to plan, capture, and edit images on the fly.

Because of the wide variety of apps photographers use, I thought I’d […]

January Desktop Wallpapers

January 3rd, 2017|

As we turn the calendar to 2017, you might realize that my monthly desktop wallpapers are already few days late. The delay is on purpose, as I opted to spend New Years offline, backcountry skiing with friends in Rogers Pass, British Columbia.

I felt it was a needed time away, as I’ve been guilty of sacrificing […]

Gift Ideas for Travel Photographers this Holiday Season

December 17th, 2016|

Canon, Nikon, and Sony are the three major camera manufacturers. In a pinch, we could add Fuji and micro four thirds systems like Olympus and Panasonic to the list, too, if we’re not limiting ourselves to full frame sensors. Naturally, the debate about which system is best has raged on since the first digital cameras […]

December Desktop Wallpapers

November 29th, 2016|

I am back in the Canadian Rockies after an incredible photography tour in Croatia, Slovenia, and Italy. I was there to shoot a portfolio project, chasing wilderness and mountains in a populated continent. To help make my trip easier, I forged a partnership with EuRail.

While I traveled, I had absolutely zero plans. I allowed […]

November Desktop Wallpapers

October 31st, 2016|

As you probably know, I took off for Jordan in early October for a 10-day trip with Visit Jordan. As that trip finished, I flew to Europe and jumped a train to Lake Bled, Slovenia, to meet @IvanThorPhoto. Ivan and I have known each other since college in Victoria, British Columbia. We decided to […]

October Desktop Wallpapers

October 1st, 2016|

Fresh off my Travel Alberta Google Trekker experience, I took on a second-consecutive Travel Alberta project. Working alongside four other photographers – @akusepp, @rawmeyn, @bokehm0n, and @shurupchik – I traveled along the Cowboy Trail from Waterton National Park to Canmore, Alberta. In just seven days, we saw a wild variety of landscapes and weather; […]

Carrying a Google Trekker Across Alberta

September 28th, 2016|

Over 19 days, Brendan Van Son and I drove 5600 km and hiked nearly 300 km each across Alberta. We encountered Grizzly Bears, moose, and a few smaller critters. We walked beneath hoodoos and towering pine trees, climbed mountains, and wandered to the edge of thundering waterfalls. But the journey wasn’t just a personal […]

September 2016 Desktop Wallpapers

August 31st, 2016|

After a slow start, August turned into one of the  busiest months of 2016. I’ve spent nearly everyday working alongside travel photographer Brendan van Son, first in Saskatchewan from August 10-16 and then here in Alberta from August 17-31. We have another week to go, too, before we part ways. We’ll be working together again […]
