The Collections Gallery gives you the option to view images organized into thematic collections. Some collections are geographically based, others are an aggregate of my favourite images over a period of time. And, like all images on this website, every image in each collection includes the full backstory behind its capture and processing!
Choosing A Collection: To view images in a specific collection simply select any of the options in the left-hand pictoral menu. Here's a quick field guide outlining what you'll find within each collection...
The "Best Of..." Collection: The "Best of..." Collection contains my personal 6 favourite images captured during each calendar year. The images in this collection aren't necessarily my best-selling prints or stock photos or most-viewed images of the year - they're just shots that really struck a chord with me and I return to time and time again. I initiated this collection in late 2014 and it will expand annually. If I find time (when pigs fly?), I may go back into my archives and back into time and pull my favs from previous years.
The Coastal BC Collection: The Coastal BC Collection celebrates the wildlife and landscapes found along British Columbia's incomparable Pacific coast. There are many, many coastlines on Planet Earth, but you'd be hard-pressed to find another that offers up the number and diversity of scenes of abundant wildlife within jaw-dropping settings and backdrops that Coastal BC delivers time and time again!
The Khutzeymateen Collection: In the Khutzeymateen Collection you'll find captivating images of ALL the wildlife and scenes found within the world-famous Khutzeymateen Grizzly Sanctuary. While the Khutzeymateen is known as one of the best places on earth to capture intimate images of grizzlies in a pristine environment, there are also a number of other species of wildlife - and moody, ethereal scenery - found there. This collection is dedicated to that entire ecosystem!
The Great Bear Collection: The Great Bear Collection represents my best attempt to capture the essence of the largest intact temperate rainforest left on earth - BC's Great Bear Rainforest. Misty, moody, and wild - the Great Bear is simply unparalleled in species diversity, species abundance, and ethereal beauty. Mother Nature at her best...
The Kootenays: The Kootenays Collection offers images of the fauna, flora, and landscapes from southeast British Columbia's Kootenay region. The habitats and ecosystems in this mountainous region vary from near-desert to interior rainforest - with almost everything in-between. The only denominator is natural beauty. It's my home.
Enjoy your journey through these collections - and don't forget to read about the full story behind each image.
