Born and raised in a small village in central Alberta, my interest in photography was born in the backcountry of the Alberta Rockies in 2007. After studying in Texas, I returned to Alberta with a renewed interest in the wilderness and natural areas this part of the world has to offer. I began backpacking and hiking with my wife Erin, and took up backcountry ski touring in the winter. When I was immersed in the beauty of nature, it seemed a natural extension to try to capture it with a camera. As time went on, I became more 'photocentric' in my trips, and have become increasingly inspired by my local surroundings as well. Winning the 2010 Canadian Geographic photo competition was a big boost and allowed me to upgrade my equipment.
As an enthusiast landscape photographer, I take pictures for my own enjoyment to document my travels. As life has changed over the last few years, I've become hopelessly addicted to traveling and capturing those memories with my camera.
Thanks for taking a look!
