The enjoyment of viewing and photographing Tofino's spectacular winter storms. The storm season generally starts in November and carries through till the late stages of spring, but the most intense period lasts from December into February. Catching a big one takes a bit of luck but if you were to keep up to date with the developing systems swirling through the offshore waters you could. These powerful storms are created by deep low pressure systems that move up into the Gulf of Alaska generating storm fronts that spin off hitting the coast armed with hurricane force winds, torrential rain and massive ocean swells that can swallow up small offshore islands in a single...

Iceland is one of the most exciting places to visit for a nature photographer. The landscapes are absolutely wild - active volcanos, thunderous waterfalls, crystalline glaciers, rugged coastlines, geothermal pools, geysers, and sculpted blue ice caves that are among the most incredible subjects to photograph. In addition, the Icelandic horses make wonderful subjects, and isolated churches and quaint villages are also very photogenic. In winter, this incredible island nation is even more dramatic. The cold climate allows us to safely explore ice caves, the snow shrouded waterfalls are partially frozen, and the reduced hours of daylight allow you to capture the stunning aurora borealis in all its glory....

  1. This is the trip of a lifetime to get as close as safely possible to wild grizzly bears without disturbing them in their natural environment. We photograph them in a beautiful remote location as these predators feed on salmon as they interact with each other in the river. And as they stare into you telephoto lens. In fall season as they prepare for winter their bellies are full of food and their coats are getting thick for the winter season (which is the safest time to view them). It is a great time to shoot them (photographically) because the this time of year the sun is fairly low in the sky which provides stunning...
