Discovering Canada – Haida Gwaii (preview)

Once called the Queen Charlotte Islands, Haida Gwaii is an archipelago off the west coast of British Columbia covering an area of about 10,180 sq. km. In terms of location, Haida Gwaii is to the west coast of Canada what Newfoundland is to the east coast — it’s as far as you can get in […]

Lifting the Veil of Colour (preview)

Story and photography by Wayne Simpson More often than not, life has a way of being busy and overwhelming. I’m a big fan of weeding out the nonsense and zeroing in on what matters most. In many respects, black and white photography embodies this philosophy on an artistic level. With black and white imagery it’s […]

A Black and White Primer (preview)

Story and photography by Mike Grandmaison I’ve loved black and white photography from the moment I picked up a camera. I studied the genre through books by some of the early masters such as Brett Weston (one of my all-time favourite photographers), Minor White, Ansel Adams, Paul Strand, Dorothea Lange and Henri Cartier-Bresson, as well […]

Your Image — Crop Sensor vs Full-Frame: Should I Switch? (full story)

Story and photography by Kelly Funk If you’re like most, you started out in the bold world of DSLR photography with a crop sensor camera. You may have made the switch to full-frame, or perhaps not, each for a variety of reasons. I dare to say most pros use a full-frame system (depending on their […]

Bird Photography Tips — Florida’s Amazing Bird Photography Sites (full story)

Story and photography by Ethan Meleg We’re planning a family trip to Florida this winter so the kids can go to Disney World, but my secret motive is all about bird photography. Florida is one of the best places in North America for bird photography in winter. It’s downright easy there, which is a nice […]

Wild Side — Photographing Wild Canids in Winter (full story)

Story and photography by John E. Marriott Regardless of where you live in Canada, winter opens up a new world of wildlife to most of us photographers — both in terms of the weather we have to deal with and the ways in which we can find our subjects. Many of the hardest yet most […]

Photographer’s Lifestyle – Conservation Through Photography (preview)

When we photograph an outdoor subject, whether it’s landscapes, nature or wildlife, we do it for enjoyment. Each of us has a passion for photographing the outdoors. Maybe it’s a time for us to get away from our busy day-to-day lives, even for just a few hours, or maybe we have a deeper connection for […]

Photographer Profile — Dani Lefrançois (Exclusive behind the photos interview)

If at first you don’t succeed… Nature photographer Dani Lefrançois proves persistence pays off By Stephanie Hounsell Dani Lefrançois is the first one to say that being a landscape photographer isn’t easy.

Gear — ON1 Photo RAW 2017 (full review)

Review by Jason DiMichele For years, the photographic industry was inundated with the RAW vs. JPG argument. Most photographers now agree that shooting RAW will get the best quality from your camera. However, just because you shoot RAW doesn’t guarantee great results, as both your technique and the RAW conversion software are paramount to the […]

Gear — Glovax Pro gloves (full review)

Review by Jason DiMichele The majority of equipment and accessories in the outdoor photographer’s backpack are directly camera related. Sometimes the accessories that can make a photographic outing more successful are not those that you buy at a photography store. I was sent a sample of Glovax Pro Gloves, and after giving them a test […]

Gear — Fujifilm GFX 50S (full review)

Review by Jason DiMichele Most of the new cameras being introduced these days are one of the three main sensor sizes, these being full-frame, cropped, and Micro Four Thirds. Fuji carries a line of cropped sensor mirrorless cameras, the X Series, which have a great reputation for all-around quality. Earlier this year Fujifilm made quite […]

Pushing Limits – Freezing Soap Bubbles (preview)

Cold and desolate winter days can leave many photographers uninspired to pick up their camera. It’s hard to get excited about long nights and sub-zero temperatures, but the inventive spirit of photography is alive and well with something as simple as blowing bubbles. Each year we get a number of days with exactly the right […]

Out of Focus (Humour) – Camera Gear Nicknames (preview)

Gear for a professional outdoor photographer is the equivalent of a trumpet for a jazz player. These essential tools enable us to turn encounters with sea slugs, sand dunes and soaring eagles into artistic masterpieces worth thousands of dollars, a couple hundred Facebook likes and a prime spot on our mother’s fridge. My camera gear […]

Advanced Shooter – Working a Scene: Discovering Your Heart’s Intent (preview)

As photographers, we are visually tuned into our surroundings. Even so, there are times when something we see stops us in our tracks and demands that we capture it in a photograph. Often we respond dutifully, make an image or two and then move on, hunting for the next visual trophy. But when we return […]

Beginner Basics – Why Should We Understand the Histogram? (preview)

Photography is my primary means of artistic expression. I have learned the technical aspects, purely as a way to extend my creative ability and fulfill the need to express myself. The mechanical processes of photography have never held too much interest for me, but as my experience has grown, I’ve come to realize that technical […]
