Firstly, we have been partaking in landscape photography after completing several high-level courses. Basically, to capture great landscape photography, you need something to make the photo stand out from the crowd. Photographers use a lot of different techniques in Landscape photography to do this. Whether it be a sunrise, sunset or weather condition, that makes the photograph unique these events require planning.
Secondly, Research and Planning are the cornerstones of a landscape photography tool kit. To know that the sun rises at a specific time and place for the location and what to expect before arriving. Also, Milky way photographs require research too, about weather patterns, wherein the sky will the milky way show itself, and what compositions I want to achieve.
Thirdly, in our spare time, we spend evenings chasing lady Aurora in and around Calgary. We have been as far as Jasper and Abraham Lake all the way to Elk Island National Park chasing Aurora in Alberta. With Aurora, there is always the Aurora weather that needs to be researched and then there are the apps that provide forecasting and predictions.
Our photographs include Kananaskis, Spray Lakes, Peyto Lake, Two Jack Lake, Vermillion lakes, Mt Rundle, Three Sisters Canmore, Aurora Borealis, Lake Herbet, Morant’s curve, Astotin Lake, Moraine Lake, Lake Louise, Emerald Lake to name a few.
Our main passion is wildlife photography, and we spent nearly three years in Edmonton photographing the Bison in Elk Island National Park. Andy has spent years working on fast-action photography required for Wildlife Photography. Wildlife photography is not just the skill behind the camera to take the photo; most of the time, it’s tracking down the subjects to take the picture in the appropriate setting. There is research required for each species. Questions are asked, for instance, what gear do we need, is the species within hiking distance, is it dangerous, what safety equipment do we need.
Usually, we hike to locations in most of Alberta’s Canada parks. Being away from our transport presents some risks with dealing with wild animals and their environment. Whether Snowshoeing or climbing, an escape from a dangerous animal might not be available. Some of our trips require backcountry camping which requires extra planning for equipment to be taken for safety and meals.
Our photographs include Moose, Eagles, Elk, Grizzly Bears, Black Bears, Snowy Owls, Great Horned Owls, Great Gray Owls, Bull Moose, Cow Moose, Baby Moose, Bull Elk, Coyotes, Boreal Owls, Pygmy Owls, Birds of Alberta to name a few.
