PEOPLE

We are all the same, yet all so different. Meeting people from different cultures helps us to understand the world better. Photographing them is my way to preserve the memories of our connection.

PLACES

When I travel around the globe, one of the first questions people ask me is “Where are you from?”. I’ve had the fortune to visit a lot of places in the world, and these images provide a small glimpse of what the world looks like to me.

THINGS

Patterns, shapes, colours, chaos and designs happen all around us. Some are man-made, and some occur naturally. But they all fascinate me, and compel me to photograph them.

PHOTOGRAPHY TOURS

I lead travel photography tours and workshops, all over SE Asia, China, and Japan, plus the Canadian Rockies. Tours are either completely private or small groups of 4 to 6 people. Check the links for more information.

This image from Canada was taken at Lake Louise, Alberta.  The summer season is pretty short at Lake Louise. Proof of that is that this image was taken at the beginning of June (not this year), and there's still an ice cover on the lake. Now considering that the elevation of Lake Louise is 1,600 meters (that's about 30 feet short of a mile), you can maybe understand why.  But regardless, with ice or without ice, Lake Louise is one of the prettiest places to be in Banff National Park, in the Canadian Rockies. That cabin you see on the lakeshore is where you can rent iconic red canoes every summer, and paddle your way around the lake. © Ian Robert Knight This image from Canada was taken at Lake Louise, Alberta.

This image from Canada was taken in Yoho National Park, British Columbia.  Yoho NP is located in the western slopes of the Rocky Mountains, in eastern BC. Yoho is a Cree word that expresses amazement or awe, which is quite appropriate, as it contains some of the highest peaks in the Canadian Rockies.  This is the Kicking Horse River, not far from the small village of Field, BC. There's a small, but powerful waterfall called the Natural Bridge Falls that's just off to the right of this image. It's named that because it's possible (although crazy) to walk across the large boulders at the top of the falls, allowing you to cross the river. There's also a man-made bridge that spans the river - - that's more my speed, thanks.  © Ian Robert Knight for @photoworkshopadventures - The World's Most Creative and Inspiring Photo Tours and Cultural Adventures This image from Canada was taken in Yoho National Park, British Columbia.

This image from Canada was taken in West Kelowna, British Columbia.  This is the cellar space inside the Mission Hill Family Estate Winery. You can tour this cavernous cellar on one of the tasting tours that the winery offers. Well worth it, I think. This image from Canada was taken in West Kelowna, British Columbia.

This image from Canada was taken in West Kelowna, British Columbia.  The wine industry in the Okanagan Valley area of BC is constantly growing and maturing, and wines from the region are winning awards around the world. These grapes were spotted at the Mission Hill Family Estate Winery in West Kelowna.  The Okanagan Valley is best known for merlots, pinot noirs, cab sauvs, pinot gris, chardonnays and guwërztraminers. I have no idea what type of grapes these are, but I can tell you that whatever they become at Mission Hill, it will be very tasty. © Ian Robert Knight This image from Canada was taken in West Kelowna, British Columbia.

This image from Canada was taken in Steveston, British Columbia.  The fishing village of Steveston, south of Vancouver, presents some great opportunities for photography. On a calm sea day, the resting boats sit quietly on the mirrored waters off Lulu Island. This image from Canada was taken in Steveston, British Columbia.

This image from Canada was taken in Steveston, British Columbia.  Steveston is a neighbourhood of Richmond in Metro Vancouver that is a popular place for fresh seafood. If you have a craving for salmon these wildly popular Spot Prawns, then Steveston would be on your radar. This image from Canada was taken in Steveston, British Columbia.

This image from Canada was taken in Vancouver.  The Pacific National Exhibition (PNE) summer fair draws a million or more people every August/September. And a good portion of those visitors are going to drop some dollars at the games in the midway.  I don't play them (much), but I do enjoy photographing and filming them. The colours at the end of the day make for some great images. You can almost hear the 'ding ding dings' of the games, just looking at the photo. © Ian Robert Knight This image from Canada was taken in Vancouver.

This image from Canada was taken in Vancouver.  Another fun image from Playland, at the Pacific National Exhibition in Vancouver. Who hasn't ridden the giant swings at a summer fair? I think it's a rite of passage for most people who attend the fair. It's not a particularly frightening ride, so everyone can go on it. But it's always fun to photograph. © Ian Robert Knight This image from Canada was taken in Vancouver.  Another fun image from Playland, at the Pacific National Exhibition in Vancouver.

This image from Canada was taken in Vancouver.  The Pacific National Exhibition (PNE) is a yearly event that closes out the summer months in Vancouver. The traditional items you'd expect at a national fair are present - a midway, farm animals, live entertainment, and those little donuts.  Photographing the rides at the midway is always great fun, particularly at twilight, when the sky goes deep blue, and the lights on the rides look their best.  I think I have a couple dozen images of this ferris wheel, and not two look alike, because the lights were changing every few seconds. Good fun. © Ian Robert Knight This image from Canada was taken in Vancouver.  The Pacific National Exhibition (PNE) is a yearly event that closes out the summer months in Vancouver.
