Untouched, Underdocumented: Photos from the Island of Niue

It has been a little while since my last entry, largely because I recently returned from a 10-week stint in the South Pacific with a mountain of raw files. The wet weather we’ve had in Banff this past week has allowed me to start putting a dent into the editing, so here I am with some images from Niue.

We moved around a lot on this latest visit to the South Pacific (check out my wife & freelance writer Meghan Ward’s blog at AdventurousParents.com for more on that). Until the dust settles I am left with a whirlwind of memories involving beaches, turquoise waters and exotic creatures. Out of those jumbled recollections, our week on the tiny island of Niue emerges as one major highlight.  Read more

Paul Zizka Photography Announces Mentorship Opportunity

It’s no secret that photography is a tough business to crack into. It was only in recent years that I was able to say goodbye to my “other” jobs and dedicate my time fully to my photography (and pay the bills with it!). It’s a tough journey, and I couldn’t have done it without the people who believed in my work and encouraged me along the way.

This is something I would like to be able to provide to others.

With that, I’m announcing a Mentorship Program with Paul Zizka Photography. There is no money exchanged with this experience – just pure hands-on teaching and learning. The mentorship is ideal for someone looking to make the leap towards full-time, professional photography, and who wants a window into what it takes. Read more

Photo Series: Nighttime Climbing in the Canadian Rockies

Hello everyone, and thanks for visiting the blog!

The purpose of this post is simply to share a few photographs of a subject I’ve truly enjoyed tackling in the last few months: night climbing. These images are from a few different outings, which were all memorable nights out in the mountains. From fully overcast to incredibly starry, the sky conditions varied and, when we were lucky, became a canvas for the elusive aurora borealis. More night climbing photo sessions are in the works, and I hope to be able to bring more of these images to you in the near future.

Big thanks to John Price, Jonathan Fox, Jennifer Olson, Mike Stuart, Seb Boulton Oliver and Randy Colwell for their contribution to these images!

Happy shooting/climbing!
