June 2017 Desktop Wallpapers

May 31st, 2017|

In May, I visited the Faroe Islands to work alongside Conor McNeil and Zoe Timmers on an F8 Photography Workshop. We were lucky to partner with both Visit Faroe Islands and Sandisk Europe, too, so we extended our stay to have extra photography opportunities.

After spending nearly two weeks on the island, I left […]

While in the Faroe Islands, SanDisk Europe asked me to field test the SanDisk Extreme 510 Portable SSD drive. I was eager to get my hands on one, as a secure image backup while traveling is essential, while the performance and speed of an SSD allows for fast file transfers and image editing.

My 2017 Photography Workshops

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

April 11th, 2017|

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 […]

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 […]
