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...

Everyone’s got a Poo Story

It’s crazy to think that it’s been nearly 10 years since I made my first ever solo backpacking trip.  It’s a little bit embarrassing thinking back to the green traveller I was back then, the travel mistakes I made, the way I acted so naively, and of course, the times I got sick.  Since then, I’ve found myself ill more times than I can count.  From extreme issues like malaria in Central Africa to more typical...

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...

Win a MASSIVE Ski Trip to Both Vail and Chile

For the past 5 years, I’ve avoided winter.  In fact, over the past 6 years the coldest weather I’ve experienced in the world was likely the -3 degrees in Antarctica.  Although there was one night in the Bolivian Altiplano where I’m told it was minus 20.  But, I didn’t leave the comfort of my room, so I don’t think that counts.  This year, however, things are going to be different.  This year, I’m...
