Paying it forward.

White snow has blanketed my home; its gentle arrival triggering a quietude in me alongside the seasonal rhythms. Summer’s bustle is now in the past and the colourful holidays of winter are still on the horizon, so this peaceful moment betwixt is a place from which I can draw a deep inhale. But, as my filling inbox reminds me, Black Friday looms.

I have mixed feelings about consumerism around the holidays. On the one hand, for creators selling their wares this season is…

Canada’s wild places and us.

Every time I find myself returning home to Canada, I am awed by the vast open spaces we have here. Every. Single. Time. The contrast with the high human density common in most other places around the world is stark, and this uniquely shapes both the land and all of us creatures who call Canada home.

Interview on making photographs in the cold.

A few weeks ago, I was approached by Feature Shoot to do an interview.  The topic of interest: making images in frigid temperatures – one of the more difficult environments to shoot in, and something I have a lifetime of experience with.

The holidays are approaching – last call for greeting cards!

A friendly reminder to everyone that the calendar has flipped over to December!

Time is flying and the holidays are fast approaching.  To be completely honest, it snuck up on me this year.  We are just starting to see the first dusting of snow here in Winnipeg, and that is unseasonably late (to put it lightly).  Judging by the amount of print orders that have been coming through my inbox in the last few days, I think you all are more on top of it than me though.
