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.

Fall day, Ottawa. Shot across the river in Gatineau, Quebec. We’ve been lucky, weather-wise this autumn.
My kinda bucket list. 
Spotted this ennead of buckets at SHED Chetwyn Farms in Prince Edward County, Ontario. The farm raises alpacas 🦙, which have to be one of the most adorable animals. These buckets were on the wall of the converted chicken coop that now serves as their shop selling all things made from alpaca wool. Very cool.
Crowfoot Mountain doesn't get all the attention that many other mountains in Banff National Park receive. But a large amount of visitors to the Park will spend time near it. It sits above Bow Lake, on the Icefields Parkway that connects Banff and Jasper. It's a popular stopover when visiting some of the many other destinations on that highway.

Lake Louise is a magnet for fun-seekers, any season of the year. In the summer, canoeing on the lake is one of the must-do activities for many visitors. With scenery like this, even those who've never paddled a canoe before take the opportunity.

Castle Mountain - surely one of the most beautiful mountains in the Canadian Rockies. You could spend all day photographing this mountain, and never bore of it. It looks amazing, always.

Emerald Lake, one of Yoho National Park's gems, is a delight to see any time of day and any time of year. 
The little chalets you see on that island spit belong to Emerald Lake Lodge. It boasts a technology-lite approach to lodging, with no cell service, no TVs in the rooms, and WiFi only in the lobby. 
Sounds like a wonderful way to spend a few days in the mountains, doesn't it?

Pictures, or it didn't happen! 
We all know that the only reason you'd get into a canoe at Lake Louise is to take selfies. Right? 
How did generations before manage to canoe without taking social proof images??

Two Jack Lake is quite close to Banff town centre, and an ideal place to wind down and relax. This lake is a haven for canoeists, kayakers, and standup paddle boarders. And it's a great place to watch a sunset.
