How to Photograph a Waterfall

March 26th, 2018|

Waterfalls are such a classic photography subject and, without question, one of my favourite landscape subjects.

Learning how […]

How to Photograph Star Trails

Throughout December 2017 and January 2018, astro-photographer Jack Fusco and I traveled across Alberta to photograph the six dark sky preserves.

Winter Adventures with National Geographic

January 27th, 2018|

It’s hard to believe it’s been nearly a year since my first (and still only) project with National Geographic. When I reflect back on the experience, it still seems surreal. One day, I was emailing clients that I’d just received my Special Flight Operations Certificate (SFOC), the coveted license that allowed me to fly UAVs […]

I’m excited to finally share Searching for the Aurora, a film I created with Jack Fusco and Travel Alberta.

How to Hike in Kyrgyzstan

October 3rd, 2017|

When I wrote Prologue: Kyrgyzstan Adventure, I knew that my itinerary included an epic hike in Kyrgyzstan and I did some basic research. I still had no idea what to expect as I began the long journey that took me halfway around the world1.
