Winterpeg.

A blizzard doesn’t arrive with the surprise that it used to. Watching the radar, murmurs of what may be coming are uttered from the lips of weather reporters and citizens alike. Parking bans are set on city streets, pantries are stocked, and commuters set their alarm clocks a little earlier than usual in hope that they will be able to get to work at all.

When the rumoured weather does arrive, there are two choices: seek shelter, or step out into the storm. Personally,…

Mountain moments.

It is tempting in life to want to see it all; to cover as much ground as possible and leave footprints in a long list of places.  This breadth of experience does have its merits, but it also has its sacrifices: namely, depth within each experience.  Personally, I increasingly value the depth side of experience and choose adventures that are more in the slow travel category these days rather than trying to see the entire map.  There really is a big difference between…

    Wow David! You really capture the feeling of the mountains well – like, the best! Really, it’s hard (I’ve tried). Keep it up and I look forward to when you return. 🙂ReplyCancel

Happy holidays!

Happy holidays to you and yours!

Wherever you find yourself today, I wish you warmth, peace, and safety.  We are snowed in at home right now and our original plans for the day have been scrapped in the name of safety, but I am grateful to be able to say that these three things are still checked off today: we are warm, we are peaceful, and we are safe.  My wish is the same for you, your loved ones, and every single person out there.

Frost on the windows…snow on the ground…grateful

Interview on making photographs in the cold.

David Quiring – a winter portrait.

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.

Appropriately, now that the temperature has plummeted, the article has been published!  Check out the stories and photographic tips I have shared here.…

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.

Either…

Postcard from the Canadian Rockies.

Autumn meets winter in Larch Valley.

It’s shoulder season again – my favourite season – and we’ve just been chased down from the alpine of the Canadian Rocky Mountains by bad weather.  The sky had been threatening all morning, but in the mountains such threats make no promises one way or another so we went ahead and hit the trail up to Sentinel Pass.  Hours later, the weather finally materialized overhead and a cold wet snow blew heavy in our faces with …
