Postcards from Hokkaido

20150109-Hokkaido-3When I came to Hokkaido for the first time for a wildlife tour in 2013, I fell in love with the place. It’s vast, wild, elegant, and her people live close to the land. I left with a longing to return, so when Martin Bailey asked me to come back and do this trip again, but with a landscape emphasis, I jumped on it and we started planning. 5 days ago a number of old friends, and a handful of new ones, met Martin and I in Tokyo, though Cynthia and I arrived a few days before that to spend some time with a couple close friends. We spend our days, short as they are (Sunrise around 8, sunset around 4) in driving snow, nearly gail-force winds, amazing land and seascapes, and the company of people who love being in wild places with cameras in hand. We spend the evenings in the onsens, Japanese natural hotsprings baths, and eating dinner and drinking sake (usually one after the other, though I’m open to the idea of taking the sake into the baths!). It’s a wonderful trip. You can see some of my work here, and a taste of the black and white images over on my Instagram page.

Hudson Bay Polar Bears

  In a couple days I’ll be on a small plane heading towards Wapusk National Park on Hudson Bay, Cape Churchill to be exact, to live on the tundra buggies for 8 nights and spend my days with Polar Bears and Arctic Fox. I’m thrilled. It’s the first of several bear trips I’m doing over […]

The Created Image, Vol.02

This July we hosted the second Created Image conference here in Vancouver. This time I was joined by Steve Simon and Piet van Den Eynde for this intense photography weekend. Over two days we talked about making compelling photographs – from learning to see and honing the skills that have nothing to do with the […]
