9 Images of a Breathtaking Landscape: Greenland

Greenland is a misleading name for this vast and wild landscape. Drifting icebergs, striking rock formations, and colourful skies are plentiful here, making Greenland a photographer’s dream location. 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!

Five Photographers Who Stepped Outside Their Comfort Zones

The entries are in from our #DitchComfort Photography Challenge, and we were truly blown away by the submissions, which came from all over the world! Fellow photographers have inspired me with their stories, their efforts to push their limits as people and as artists, and with the results of stepping outside of their comfort zones.

Congrats to our winner, Paul May, for winning the Grand prize of a 1-hour photography consultation and critique, and a copy of Summits & Starlight, and to our four special mentions (we couldn’t choose just three!), who will also receive a copy of the book. Thanks as well to everyone who decided to #DitchComfort and submit their photos. Some of you stepped outside your comfort zones just by entering, and I really appreciate the effort.

Northern Lights Put on Another Show in Banff: Cosmic Curtains

Last night we had a nice aurora display last night over Banff National Park. It was pretty subdued to the naked eye overall, but the camera picked up a wonderful colour palette.

Summits and Starlight: The Canadian Rockies

I never imagined publishing a book just six years after buying my first DSLR. At some point the idea of doing a book crossed my mind, but I thought it would be the culmination of a much longer career. Perhaps that book is still in the stars in the years to come, but the door was opened to me much sooner by publisher Rocky Mountain Books, and hence the journey began.

Summits & Starlight: The Canadian Rockies is my first book and the culmination of the last five years of photography.

Mountains in Motion now available online!

Just a quick post to let everyone know that our time-lapse short Mountains In Motion: The Canadian Rockies is now available for all to see! After a few months on the festival circuit, the team decided it was time for all to view and enjoy.

We hope you enjoy it. If you share our passion for the Canadian Rockies we think you will. If you have never been here we hope the film will make you want to come and check out our mountain paradise.

The project has been a challenging one at times, but overall extremely rewarding. It’s been a great two-year ride.
