Testimonials: 

Thanks for an awesome trip. Visiting Africa and photographing  a safari was very high on my list of life goals, and you made the trip absolutely awesome, spectacular, educational, and fun! I can’t really say how memorable and enjoyable it was.  Jim Sinkovic – “Surreal Namibia” Photography Tour

Really the workshop was even better than I could have hoped. Not just the great weather and surroundings and the choice spots you picked but your low key but still rigorous approach. I learned a ton! You struck the right balance between a variety of hands on work in the field, a great mixture of techniques and sharing your wealth of very practical and useful knowledge. Most of all I appreciated the shear joy you take in photography, it was totally infectious!  Don’t ever lose that —it’ll take you (and those you teach) far.  Marina Klein – “Algonquin Autumn Splendour”  Photography Workshop

Thanks very much for this mind blowing adventure – a true explosion of sights. We want to thank you for making our photography trip to Namibia a great success from A to Z. Everything was perfect; great company ,wonderful accommodations but most we appreciate your professionalism.Thank you again for the unforgettable adventure in Namibia. Simon Dadouche and Marie Lamarche – “Surreal Namibia” Photography Tour

The workshop in one word was “inspiring”. Your knowledge and passion for photography mixed with the fact that you want to share this with others made the workshop not only an amazing learning experience,  but left me with such an excitement and thirst to go out and shoot more and apply the lessons you had taught. I got so much more  from the workshop than I expected. The only thing I would have wished more from it, would have been more time. Troy Popovitch – “Absolute Best of the Canadian Rockies”  Photography Workshop

Two great gifts that you gave me at the workshop: a starting point, and the permission to be my own artist. Your diversity as an artist was inspiring. Your passion for creating was obvious. Your desire to teach others selflessly was apparent.  Kristen Thorogood – “Absolute Best of the Canadian Rockies”  Photography Workshop

Call to Action! Save the Yukon’s Peel Watershed.

As part of our conservation photography initiative, I am excited to issue a CALL TO ACTION to Canada’s truly wild and sublimely beautiful Peel Watershed, located in the Yukon territory! I am looking for 6 intermediate to advanced photographers to accompany me on a photographic backpacking expedition into some of Canada’s most spectacular, remote, and wild natural lands, right at the time when the Tundra explodes in a kaleidoscope of peak autumn colors. This will be an expedition in the truest sense of the word, with the aim of helping nature conservation societies in their fight to protect this vast, pristine and untouched northern Canadian Wilderness.

Rockies-Announce-2015

Crown Jewels of the Canadian Rockies.

A land that needs little introduction, the Canadian Rockies are a landscape photographer’s dream. The opportunities for photography are endless, from still, turquoise colored lakes, rushing rivers, towering waterfalls and deep canyons, to soaring, snow capped mountain peaks and beautiful night skies. We will be visiting the Rockies in autumn, and some lovely autumn colours will add that extra touch to the majestic mountain scenery you will be capturing. As if the Rockies themselves were not spectacular enough, we will visit one of the most breathtaking backcountry locations the Rockies have to offer. Join us on a helicopter ride into the backcountry of British Columbia’s pristine, wild and utterly beautiful Assiniboine Provincial Park. From high above, you will have the opportunity to gaze in awe at the jagged, never-ending mountain ranges. This is the time of the year when the larches turn golden, and we will be lucky enough to capture them as they beautifully complement the majestic mountain scenery! Learn more.

September 12 – 19, 2015


 

Algonquin-announce-2015

 

Algonquin Autumn Splendour.

A land of thousands of lakes and streams, where the northern coniferous and southern deciduous forests meet, Algonquin Provincial Park is world famous for its intense and varied show of spectacular fall colors. Join me for an intense learning experience among some of the most beautiful autumn scenery our world has to offer. Learn and develop your skills at photographing streams and waterfalls adorned with vibrant autumn colors, the beautiful interplay of the rising sun with mists rising off still lakes, the grandeur of seemingly endless autumn landscapes stretching as far as the eye can see, and the spectacular night skies that Algonquin has to offer.

Namibia-announce-2016

Surreal Namibia.

A land you never imagined could exist, Namibia, like no other, combines the spectacular, the endless, the surreal. Namibia is, in one word, otherworldly. Vast, ancient and extremely sparsely populated, it contains an unimaginable variety and combination of natural landscapes. Join me on a photographic adventure of a lifetime, and wonder in awe at the world’s second largest canyon, islands of ancient mountains surrounded by an infinite sea of golden grasses, the expanse of the world’s tallest, and surely most beautiful, ochre colored dunes, the plains of an earth churned and folded by infinite geological forces, the jaw dropping vista of gigantic dune fields extending to the very edge of the Atlantic ocean, and the unparalleled wildlife viewing opportunities in the North. Namibia is nothing other than a photographer’s dream. Learn more.

Assiniboine Mountain Splendour.

A land that needs little introduction, the Canadian Rockies are a landscape photographer’s dream. The opportunities for photography are endless, from still, turquoise colored lakes, rushing rivers, towering waterfalls and deep canyons, to soaring, snow capped mountain peaks and beautiful night skies. However, it is in the back country where the real magic lies. It harbours natural treasures of a beauty one would not have thought could exist. British Columbia’s pristine, wild and utterly beautiful Assiniboine Provincial Park counts as one of the most spectacular, breath taking back country locations the Rockies have to offer. Join us on a helicopter ride into the backcountry of Assiniboine Provincial Park. From high above, you will have the opportunity to gaze in awe at the jagged, never-ending mountain ranges. This is the time of the year when the larches turn golden, and we will be lucky enough to capture them as they beautifully complement the majestic mountain scenery! Learn more.

South-Africa-announce-2016

Spectacular South Africa.

Seemingly hidden at the end of the world, a vast, spectacular coast line traces the southern most edge of the African continent. A land of extremes, you will be left breathless by the sight of rugged coastal mountains towering over a wild ocean while, a stone’s throw away, Africa’s wild animals feed on gentle plains covered in blossoming wildflowers. Wonder in awe at one of the world’s most beautiful coastal cities from atop Table Mountain, penguins frolicking on giant granite boulder strewn white beaches, and lush forests rolling down to the sea where ancient rivers have carved their path through rocky ravines. But we will visit not only the coast line. There are many inland treasures such as the Overberg, South Africa’s answer to Tuscany, the unsurpassed scenery of the Cape winelands, and the excellent opportunities for viewing herds of wild elephants and the “Big Five” in one of South Africa’s largest National Parks. Join me on a photographic adventure of a lifetime, and come explore with me my home country, which we rightly call “A World in One Country”. Learn more.
