About the Photographer
I believe the first time I picked up a camera was in 2007. I had no desire to photograph before then, but circumstances that drew me back
to my hometown of Fort Smith, NT, drew me to the medium. I had grown up in the north and to date have spent over 20 years there. I left home at 18 and
traveled through south through western Canada. Everywhere I went, someone would ask where I was from. Upon telling them “Northwest Territories” I
would receive the same answer over and over again - “where is that?” My goal is to introduce the North to the South starting region by region - I also
want to do the same with Yukon & Nunavut in an effort to shed light on one of Canada's most fascinating lands.
I want to showcase the beauty of the North to those who don't
even know the North exists. – which is more common in our
own country than one would think. The
ambiguous ice clad tundra with all of our igloos, our polar bears and
vast snowscapes...or is there more to it? My goal is to introduce the
North to the South starting region by region in the
NWT. I also hope to photograph the Yukon and
Nunavut and show off the natural beauty of the North. The entire
