August Desktop Wallpapers

August 10th, 2017|

It took a 3:50AM alarm clock to reach the Minnestimma Lakes in Banff National Park for sunrise, but there’s so many benefits to exploring the park during these early hours:

  • The Parks, which are busy due to the Canada150 initiatives, are essentially empty until 7AM.
  • The Parks are filled with smoke at the moment, but it […]

July Desktop Wallpapers

July 6th, 2017|

For July, I am challenging myself to get out and shoot sunrise more often. It’s so easy to skip in the summer, as arriving at good locations requires a really early morning wakeup call; however, there isn’t a better time of day to photograph the Canadian Rockies. To shoot this Emerald Lake sunrise, I had […]

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 […]

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

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]
