Why I Love Shooting Bears (With My Camera)

But within communities of passionate wildlife advocates, few topics are as divisive as the perception of wildlife photography. And for good reason. Yes, at times wildlife photography can hurt the subjects we're trying to capture. But seeing bears in the wild is a remarkable experience and positive bear (and wildlife) encounters are critical to creating a culture that appreciates and supports balanced conservation.

There is such a wide degree of possible options to which they may be referring. Here's a little definition guide for you so that when you want a print, you know what to ask for at your gallery of choice.

Hell May Have Frozen Over, but Niagara Falls Did Not

The tweet from the Ontario Newspaper Awards caught my attention on a frigid Wednesday night: "@ChicagoPhotoSho: Niagara Falls has frozen over today." It seemed like a credible enough source. The ONAs, as industry folk call them, are widely respected. But Niagara Falls did not actually freeze.

We Don't Need "Excuses" for How We Look

"We Don't Need An Excuse" is not about attacking Maria Kang. It goes well beyond her and focuses on the "No Excuses" movement. It's about realizing that we all walk different paths and have different challenges. We are all worthy and we are all valid. No one needs to give any excuses. I think that's the inspiration I'd like to get on board with.

In Defence of the Selfie: Narcissistic Body Positivity

Selfies, to me, are narcissistic. There's no denying that. But they also show the world who I feel like I really am inside. I am a great selfie taker; I get all my best angles because I know to look for them. The photos I produce are ones I'm proud of. For me, selfies document my journey with my own self-acceptance.

Adams shot several of his photos in what looks like puzzle pieces -- tiny sequential photographs that he pieced together to create a sense of the grandeur and size of nature in the community where his sister and his nephew made their home. One of Adams' photos focuses on totem pole creation, a Native art that is found all over British Columbia.

One of the great pleasures of life is kissing a man with a moustache. (Yes, you can quote me.) I am completely in luck because Istanbul is full of handsome men with moustaches -- not just any kind of moustache, but sexy ones. In fact, all of the facial hair here in Istanbul is süper sexy.

I'm honestly blown away at how many people have connected with my video, Everest -- Time Lapse Short Film. My goal was to bring to life the majestic beauty of the Himalayas and draw attention away from the negativity that has surrounded Everest in the past years. I wanted to remind people of the infinite possibility that the tallest mountain on Earth symbolizes in each of us.

Travel photography can offer some of the most inspirational, exciting, and candid shots from the places you visit and the people you meet. If you are like me, one of the largest challenges when travelling is what to take with you. How much can you carry around? How do you protect your gear from theft?

I had the pleasure of speaking with photographer David Jay about his ever-evolving The Scar Project (acronym for "Surviving Cancer Absolute Reality"). David's photographs are striking. Then I got an email from David last fall alerting me about Facebook's decision to ban photographs from The SCAR Project from being posted on the Fan Page.

The Toronto skyline has changed dramatically over the last century, and that change is accelerating at a rapid pace. Even more fascinating is photographically (or more correctly through the magic of Photoshop) merging present day views with the archived views to dramatically highlight the changes in cityscape.

Photography Is Best Enjoyed Offline

We have so much amazing technology available to us in our digital lifestyle but there are still some parts of our lives that deserve to be brought "offline." I still believe that photography is best appreciated and enjoyed only once it is printed, and it's a lost art that we are moving away from. We need to bring it back.

Why I Never Want to Take the Perfect Picture

I am learning, slowly, but surely, that life is not about taking the perfect picture. It is about the big picture. And the smaller ones that define and describe who and what we are. Husband turned and said to me, after the snowman fell and we were rebuilding a second, "He's just like all of us. Falling apart and getting re-built bigger and better again."

I'm an iPhotographer and Proud of it

When a travel photographer ventured to other countries only a couple of decades ago, they had to carefully pack their camera bags with all of these supplies and ensure their film was stored appropriately afterward. Today, with the touch of a screen, a moment can be captured and shared with your social network within seconds. I believe these phone photography tools can be beneficial, especially while travelling. The way I look at it now, I see Instagram as a challenge.

Every July, around 10 Canadian universities scattered across the country play host to 500 students from all provinces/territories and even internationally. Although the program is for open-minded high school students who are not afraid to delve into any subject and become challenged or inspired in ways they never thought possible in one month, I hope to break the stereotype that this is "nerd camp". My program consisted of 56 total Shads and we lived in residence at the university.

Our eyes are pretty amazing -- we can see a lot of light and a lot of darkness all at the same time. Cameras aren't the same way, unfortunately. A common scenario that we're faced with when photographing indoors is using windows in our pictures. Here are some tips for proper exposure in this situation.
