Canadian Creatives: Our Favourite Images

Just under a year ago I teamed up with fellow Canadian photographers, Dave Brosha and John Marriott, to launch Canadian Creatives, a collective that aims to celebrate creativity in Canadian photography, and that showcases the best images from across the country and across several genres.

The initiative first started out on Instagram, and has been quick to gather attention on there. Over the last few months, we added to our team of curators some of the most talented and versatile photographers in Canada: Joel Robison, Viktoria Haack, Wayne Simpson and Lanny & Erika Mann.

To kick off 2016, we thought we would create a joint blog showcasing an image by one of our fellow Canadian Creative curators. We were each randomly given a name and it was our task to choose a 2015 image from that person, and then say a few words about why we felt it was cutting-edge, compelling work.

Like spirits in the sky, they enchant and entrance us, keeping us up for hours on end as they move through the sky, disappearing and reappearing again with sudden and surprising new patterns.

I had the chance to spend a short time there this September, scouting out locations for a photography workshop next year. Here are some of the best images to come out of this trip!

25 (Other) Perspectives of Canada’s Icon: Moraine Lake

If you’re familiar with the typical “$20 bill” view of Moraine Lake and the Ten Peaks, you know it’s already an impressive place. But this region of Banff National Park has so much more to offer to the keen photographer or adventurer.
