Canadian Geographic Special Collector’s Edition Best Wildlife Photography 2017 Hot off the press, perhaps not even on the new stands yet, but I just received my advance copy by mail. Alongside many spectacular wildlife images, is a close-up of a convergent lady beetle that I photographed in my Port Moody backyard. *Update* This special edition [...]

2016 Wildlife Rescue Calendar

The Wildlife Rescue Association of BC’s 2016 calendar is now available. This calendar helps raise awareness and funds needed to care for the thousands of sick, injured, and pollution-damaged wildlife brought into the centre each year. Two of my images appear–alongside those of photographers Paul Steeves and William Murdoch–in this beautiful 13-month calendar. 2016 Wildlife Rescue Association of [...]

CG Birds Collector’s Edition

No National bird? Only in Canada, you say? That’s correct. With more than 450 avian species across Canada, not one of them is designated as the country’s National Bird. Canadian Geographic’s National Bird Project is determined to change that by the year 2017. In honour of this project, Canadian Geographic recently published their “Special Collector’s Edition Birds [...]

Palm Springs-Beyond the Golf Courses

Golfing and shopping are synonymous with Palm Springs…but what to do if you don’t particularly like either? How about meandering 1,200 acres of gardens and animals in the Living Desert Conservation, and learn about their important work of “preserving, conserving and interpreting the desert and all its varied plant and animal life”? The site includes a [...]

Canada Post Baby Wildlife

A highlight of photography for me is using images to make a positive impact, especially when it is for the betterment of wildlife. So when Canada Post’s limited edition (4,000 copies) Baby Wildlife The Beaver Stamp and Coin set was launched with one of my images on the back of the information postcard included in the [...]

Summer in the Canadian Rockies

Iconic Lake Louise, situated in Banff (Alberta) National Park, is likely one of the most photographed lakes in Canada. This quintessential Canadian landscape with its turquoise-coloured water surrounded by the majestic Victoria Glacier is a precious gem. The vast trail system around the lake provides hours of great hiking in the fresh, clean air and [...]

Oh Deer

While driving through Grand Forks on a road-trip to the Kootenays, I notice a small herd of deer only a block off the main highway. What a wonderful sight of wildlife melding into the urban landscape. I watch with pure joy as the deer nuzzle one another, lounge on the grass, and gently interact with [...]
