Canon 16-35mm f/4 Unboxing and Specs

I know what you’re thinking, did I hit win the lottery?  No, no I didn’t.  In fact, this and my new Canon 6D body is actually the result of saving for about an entire year.  So, yes, I’m still poor.  In fact, like always, I basically sold all my savings on the camera gear I felt I needed to help take my image quality to the next level. Now, this is, of course, an unboxing of the new-ish Canon 16-35mm f/4 IS.  Canon...

Q&A with Astronaut/Photographer Col. Chris Hadfield in Jasper

I’m up right now in Jasper National Park attending the Dark Sky Festival. And well I have another article and some photography coming from up here in a little bit, I was too jacked up on this right now not to post something instantly. I got the chance to sit in on a media Q&A with Astronaut Col. Chris Hadfield who is an absolute legend in Canada and around the world.  The man is essentially as big a celebrity as can be...

How to Make them Mountains Sing!

I know that if you’ve read the title, you’re already judging my merits as a travel writer.  I think, if you see the video, you might start to worry about my merits as a travel photographer as well.  But, it’s all good.  What I’ve learn over the years is that mistakes are good.  Well, they’re not great, but they’re OK.  Mistakes, if we take them as a learning opportunity, will teach us to make the...

How a Travel Photographer Takes a Vacation

Aside from the usual, “what’s your favourite country,” and “how do you make money?” the question I get asked the most by people is what I do, and where I go for a “vacation”.  Well, a while ago I answered that a bit with my article on defining the word vacation, but I’ve never really shown you how I do it.  The truth, as you may assume, is that as a professional traveller of any kind,...

The Art of Photo Location Scouting in Waterton Lakes National Park

I’ve only been to Waterton Lakes National Park once; last year on the awesome #ExploreAlberta road trip I did around the province.  However, I only got one good morning, then a blizzard hit and I was locked in my room the other day.  Thus, I made sure that I got around to almost all the possible shoot locations this time in the park. I thought that it was probably the perfect opportunity to give you a bit of insight into what...

On Location with the Volkswagen Touareg in Banff National Park

Coming home is always fun.  I seem to always leave way too much time between visits to Alberta, though.  This last void was a full 14 months, and it was finally filled after returning with the VIA Rail last week.  This week, I got back to some of my favourite locations in the world behind the steering wheel of a beautiful 2014 Volkswagen Touareg.  The people at Volkswagen Canada were nice enough to let us take their killer ride out to...
