2016 – a review

and the “B” side images;

 

 

and some “C”s…..I had a really fun year!

 

 

So it was a big year, we finally moved to Canmore to make our home in the Canadian Rockies! Once there I managed to climb 51 separate mountains in the next 8 months to finish off the year. My goal was my age in peaks for the year so I was happy to achieve that when I hit 33 peaks with Mt St Nicholas in Banff National Park but going up mountains has so many positive effects that I kept at it right until year’s end. Bring on 34+ peaks in 2017! I was also fortunate to be invited to help on a few of Will Patino’s photography workshops, both here in Canada and also over in Iceland which i’m so grateful for as It opened me up to new friends and experiences that I had never imagined. I still have to process a lot of the Iceland images. I’m really looking forward to creating even more unique images next year and to continuing to take steps to build a happy and fulfilling life.

All the best in 2017!

2015 – a review

My favourite 10 images that I took during 2015 (click on each one for more details);

In 2015 I have worked on photography as much as possible. It has in some way shape or form been present in every spare waking moment that ive had! Ive been lucky to have this time for it but am always left wishing there was more. I managed to do many things im proud of and becoming a Permanent Resident of Canada was one of those. It helped me be able to move forward with more purpose knowing that im here to stay….8 years on temporary permits was great for travel and flexibility but not if you wish to start something. The most exciting part of the year was traveling alone to the Yukon Territory for 2 weeks to backpack & photograph Tombstone Territorial Park. Nothing beats being immersed in nature, with a close second photographing it with intention to hopefully come away with a ripping shot or two.

Happy new year and best wishes for 2016!
