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.Read More
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…Read More
Hello everyone! I hope 2013 was a fantastic year for you all.
I have been just amazed by all the support I have received this year. Thank you so, so much to everyone who took time to view the photographs and to interact through the social media channels. Initially I had so many great intentions for this traditional end-of-year post – thoughts on the state of photography, the trends of the photo business, what I’ve learned this year, what I hope to implement in 2014. Then we ended up moving houses here in Banff between Christmas and New Year’s, and with only a few hours left to 2013, and just barely enough room to type among all the boxes in this new office, I might just keep the post very photo-heavy. I hope you don’t mind, and I still hope to share those other thoughts throughout the coming year!
2013 was a wonderful, overwhelming, busy, fun-filled year for Paul Zizka Photography. Let me give you an overview of what happened using a few photographs…Read More
As a Banff-based landscape photographer I am able to spend a lot of time at the iconic lakes of Banff National Park. I’ve been fortunate to shoot them in a variety of conditions. Winter, Summer, nighttime, sunrise, midday, sunset, you name it. I enjoy revisiting those familiar locations and marvelling at how different they can…Read More
All aurora nights start with the same intention. “Oh I’ll just get out for an hour and be in bed by midnight…” Somehow I keep getting caught up taking in the celestial displays and end up staying out for much later than that. Some shows warrant not going back to bed at all. The night…Read More
This is a follow up to a collection of summery Banff National Park aerials I posted a few months back. Here’s a glimpse into the wintry heights of the Canadian Rockies. Prints are available for anyone interested – just get in touch!Read More
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.Read More
