• Chilcotin Ark
  • The Story Behind the Image

    One day while exploring the Chilcotin grasslands, I came across this lone cabin set amidst the most incredible scent of wild sagebrush.

  • The Story Behind the Image

    Flickers arrived on our property last week and the sounds of them pecking trees, telephone poles and roof tops, made me thing of the time I captured this image along the shores of the Fraser River.

  • The Story Behind the Image

    When I was photographing for my book Spirit in the Grass, my biggest challenge was to capture book quality bird images. The grasslands are vast.

    High above the mid-Fraser River Canyon between Clinton and Williams Lake to the north, there is a spectacular back-country road which winds it way, often precariously, through the Cariboo Chilcotin grassland canyonlands.  I have traveled this road often over the years while searching for beautiful grassland compositions. One of the sights I often see are the dead vehicles […]

I was exploring a new Canadian landscape at the foothills of the Coast Mountains; one which was being revealed for the very first time by the retreating Fyles Glacier. As I roamed with my camera, marveling at new soils and first generation vegetation, I came across this small […]

  • A New Yoga Retreat

    Last week I was out in the West Chilcotin photographing a few beautiful resorts in the Nimpo and Anahim Lake area. One of the resorts is offering yoga retreats; I’ll share a few images I made over the next few days.   This is The Dean on Nimpo Resort which looks out over spectacular Nimpo […]
