Little Yoho Traverse

Eddie Bauer helped make this adventure possible. To see more unique content, please search for #liveyouradventure on Instagram or visit their blog.

My adventure on the Little Yoho Traverse didn’t begin as I slid into my harness and clipped myself onto the three-person rope team. It began weeks earlier, in a Calgary city park. Spring […]

My 2017 Photography Workshops

April 15th, 2017|

After leading two adventure photography workshops last year, in Morocco and Cuba, I have four different workshops and tours lined up in 2017. The first one, co-leading The Giving Lens Peru with Peyton Hale, begins on Monday, but after that there is still time to book a spot on any of my […]

April 2017 Desktop Wallpapers

Alberta dark skies have become a must-see attraction, especially in the Alberta Rockies. Thanks to small populations in the mountain parks, there is very little light pollution to obscure our view of the night sky. Simply put, it’s easier to see more stars in Alberta than in more populated areas.

In March, I worked on a […]

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

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 […]
