Finding great shots while on the road, for me, used to mean finding great shots while hanging off the side of a road. My photography manta has often been “anything to get a great shot.” I keep a pair of rubber boots in my trunk just in case I end up in a place I might need them for a photograph; I’ve had friends hold my feet while trying to get the right angle for a photo (be careful!); and I’ve been nearly arrested for trespassing (don’t recommend this one, Dreamstimers... continue reading

Canadian winters are famous for being long and cold, really long and cold. So how can you bring a camera out when it's -30? You really can't. I've tried and literally frozen up leaving me with nothing to show.So if you're here in those long dark months, what do you do?My mom's favorite place (and somewhere I really like too) is to visit the Muttart Conservatory, a beautiful little oasis in the river valley.There's 4 glass pyramids, containing different biomes from desert to rainforest.

The major action in Edmonton (and also the best picture taking spots)... continue reading
Whenever I say I’m from Canada, people ask three questions: Am I from Toronto, Vancouver or do I speak French (meaning am I from Quebec).

But my city is lovely and we are continuing to change. We have many wonderful festivals (most in the summer as people... continue reading

Fall camping has its charms over summer camping:1. Get to wear cozy sweaters.2. Getting close around the fire to keep warm.3. No bugs!Downsides:1. Better chance of getting rained on.2. Swimming in mountain rivers isn't nearly as much fun.3. Shorter days.Our family likes to make an excursion for the labor day long weekend each year.This year's trip was out to Kananaskis Country.It is a beautiful area of Alberta, Canada.One of the great things about camping is the... continue reading
