Firstly, we have been taking landscape photographs after completing several high-level courses. Basically, to capture great landscape photographs, 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, what compositions do I want to achieve.
Our main passion is wildlife photography, and we spent nearly three years in Edmonton photographing the Bison in Elk Island. 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 and 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 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.
