The Value of Self-Evaluation Regardless of the Trade

The Value of Self-Evaluation Regardless of the Trade

The entire purpose of my Enterprise Rent-a-Car road trip to Drumheller was to show people what it takes to pursue a passion. Yes, it takes effort, time, overcoming some obstacles, and it involves help from people that want to see you succeed.  But, I think one of the most little talked about aspects of pursuing your passion is self-evaluation.  No matter what it is you do, evaluating where you’re at, what your strengths are, and...

An Enterprise Road Trip to Drumheller

If you’ve been following this travel photography blog a bit of late, you’ll know that I’ve been going a little bit stir crazy here in Alberta.  It’s not that Canada isn’t amazing and full of really cool places to see, it’s just that I haven’t had wheels for most of the time I’ve been here.  As such, it’s been a bit hard to get around.  And, sure, we’ve gone on a couple cool...

Ski and Snowboard Photography at Marmot Basin, Jasper

The other day, we got the chance to make our way up Marmot Basin for a second day of skiing. It was funny to see how different the conditions were just two days apart. On the first day we skied at Marmot, which is just outside of the Jasper townsite and up the side of the mountain, we had powder up to our knees and the snow was falling extremely heavily. On this day, we had perfect blue skies, almost infrared looking snow on the...

Lots of Powder at Marmot Basin

It’s been 9 days since I last posted an article.  I really can’t tell you the last time I’ve gone a stretch that long with posting.  Maybe when I got malaria in The DRC and nearly died? Well, I had an excuse then, this time around it’s just been a bit too mundane to post anything.  I’ve been going stir crazy in Alberta.  And it’s not that Alberta isn’t beautiful, it is one of the most...

Using Macro Extension Tubes

I know what you’re thinking: “Brendan, you’re a travel photographer, get the hell out of the house!”.  And, believe me, I want to.  But, I’m kind of cooped up here at the moment in my hometown.  Not only do I not have a car at my disposal, and there’s no public transport out here in the sticks, but it’s been bloody cold.  Last week, the temperature actually hit something like -30 with the wind...
