Grotto Canyon.

Hope everyone had a safe and happy new year!

I took a little trip with my girlfriend and my sister (who is visiting from Montreal for the holidays). We went out to Canmore for an easy hike through Grotto Canyon. The hike isn’t so much of an incline, but the icy trail leads to some frozen waterfalls and a cave further along. The waterfalls are incredible and are well worth the short trek. After spending some time slipping and sliding around on the ice, we continued our way towards the cave. At first glance, the hill to get up to it doesn’t look so bad. However, once halfway up, we immediately realized how steep it really is. The fun part for me was going back down since I was able to just hop and slide most of the way, and again for the return trip down the frozen creek. It was a perfect little hike for the day, before it started dumping snow - which made the highway quite slick on the drive home. 

Again, happy new year! Here’s to more adventures and exploring in 2017!

I hope everyone had a wonderful time over the holidays and was able to spend some quality time with friends and family! I know I did, and I may have eaten a little too much… Who am I kidding, I can never eat too much :P

Before I took off up to Red Deer (my hometown) for the Christmas weekend, Theresa and I took a quick drive out to Kananaskis for a little hike and some portraits, of course! Leaving Calgary, the roads were dry and the sky was clear. However, once we arrived at Upper Kananaskis Lake, the snow began to lightly fall, and the fog slowly rolled in - which made for a perfectly moody setting. The large amount of snow later on came in at the perfect time to bring us a very enjoyable White Christmas.

As always, enjoy the photos!

We also could help but spend a bit of time taking in some of the scenery itself.


Hello everyone! 

I have decided that I want to start up a website/blog for my photography. It has been something I have been thinking about for some time now and I feel that it will give my photos more meaning. It’s a place for me to share more photos in addition to the stories behind them. Besides sharing some photos online such as 500px or Instagram, these photos remain left just stored on my phone or on my hard drive. If all else, these posts will serve to be a personal journal. One that I can look back on that is simple and organized. It is something that I can see where I have been, what I have done, and where I want to progress to. I may also choose to share more, such as photography tips or share some thoughts about life. For those who take the time to read - or at least browse through my galleries or blog, I thank you and truly hope that you enjoy it!

Kyra got in touch with me a while back and on this past weekend, we finally managed to get together and do a little shoot. The weather has been extremely cold lately (below -20 degrees Celsius), so I suggested shooting indoors with these gorgeous Christmas lights. What can I say, this spot was magical and we definitely felt the holiday spirit! It was a super fun shoot - even though it was a little bit different from the usual natural light portraits I tend to take.
