Paul Zizka Photography: Top 16 of 2016

As a photographer, I love to take some time each December to review what was created over the last year. I know I’ve taken a few images that are compelling to me if I can look at them and re-live my year through them. So, please allow me to share 16 images that are special to me, as well as the stories behind them. These are not necessarily images that others liked or that made a killing on social media, but they’re shots that got me fired up creatively. Enjoy!

INDLANDSIS

Back in September, I had the opportunity to spend a few days with French filmmaker Mathieu Le Lay on the Greenlandic icecap to shoot segments for his upcoming film, In the Starlight. While plans are in the works for him to join me to shoot both here in the Canadian Rockies and in other international destinations this upcoming year, Mathieu has released this short film in the meantime. Here are some “behind the scenes” from our days spent amidst, ice, auroras, indigo waters and icebergs.

Journey Through the Torngat Mountains

Tucked into one of the most remote parts of Canada lies one of the last frontiers for landscape photographers and explorers alike: the Torngat Mountains. The area is an incredibly wild mix that fires up the imagination: Norway-like fjords, glacier remnants (and the associated turquoise lakes), a healthy polar bear population, jagged icebergs freshly arrived from Greenland, aurora-filled skies, cultural treasures, archeological gems, rich marine life, and some of the highest, most rugged peaks in all of Eastern Canada.

Climbing and Photographing the Ten Peaks

This summer, I climbed the tenth and final summit of the famous “Ten Peaks” that tower over Moraine Lake. I didn’t originally set out to climb all ten, but after I completed the first few it grew into a side project to climb the rest and photograph from their summits. The resulting photos from this journey have recently been featured on Crowfoot Media in an interview with Kyla Jacobs!

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.
