Behind the Image: Glowing Home

Here is another example of combining two cool things to hopefully get something cooler than the sum of its parts. I love to photograph people who are truly passionate about what they do. I don’t mind if my subjects are not the best in the world at what they’re doing. I just love documenting people…

11 Dream Locations Photographers Should Know About

Well before I started in photography I already had a passion for exploring lesser-known parts of the planet and remote landscapes. When I picked up the camera, it was only natural that I use photography to document some of my experiences in these kinds of destinations. As much as I believe that good photos can happen anywhere, even in the backyard, I feel fortunate to have spent time photographing those locations that have so much photo potential, yet generally fall off the radar. The world is full of these gems – the underdocumented, rarely visited or overlooked. While some places will remain that way for some time due to difficulty or costs of access, for others it may be only a matter of time before they become as popular as the current photo hot spots. There is much, much more to explore, but here are eleven locations that hold a special place for me and that remain largely obscure.

Thoughts on Adventure, Over-Documentation and Disconnecting

As someone who has been doing adventure photography for a few years now, one of the most significant trends I’ve seen is the increasing external pressure to document. Everything. Everywhere.

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.
