Visiting Venezia as a travel photographer

As a travel photographer, Venice is one of my favourite destinations in Europe. The piazza, or center square, is literally the pulse of any italian city. In my experience, it’s where the townsfolk wander to after dinner, to socialize, to take a slow stroll, savour a gelato, sip an aperitif, catch up with friends, and acknowledge one another. For me, as an observer to this vibrant place, it really was where the expression “It takes a village to raise a […]

Rolling with the Unforseen

You just have to turn your head right now anywhere in Alberta and nature’s gentle assault of fall foliage is everywhere.

Sharing Earth with Animals

Home from another photo drive in the rockies, I realize today just how lucky we are to share this earth with our animal friends. As someone who also loves photographing wildlife, animals, insects, birds, I am ever-conscious of making the most of my surroundings here in Alberta. Being out near Canmore yesterday, I ventured out to check out the spring offerings in nature, and hopefully capture some wildlife too. I got lucky a couple times!             […]
