Not a bad way to start the morning in Banff! Still mornings by the water are always the most relaxing.

Early morning mist rising from the jungle of Alor Island. Sunrises in Indonesia are so beautiful. If you’re ever visiting, I highly recommend waking up early to watch the sun come up.

It’s weird when you’re snorkelling and suddenly a rock turns into a cuttlefish and swims away 😅 I shot this in Indonesia last month where the Indian Ocean and Pacific Ocean meet. This creates huge currents and a mashup of sea creatures all in one spot. At one point free-diving, we had 3 or 4 different species of shark swimming around us. Shot on the Canon 1DXii

A day well spent flinging ourselves into the freezing lake, followed by cooking ourselves in the sauna. By using a polarizing filter, you can see the real colour of the water without any glare from the sun 😍

Dreaming of these crystal clear waters in the Philippines. @chelseakauai and I spent the afternoon freediving in this beautiful lake. This spot was so stunning that I couldn’t contain myself. One of the the videos that I found from here was just me freaking out with excitement. Maybe I’ll share that one with you guys later : )

Low lying fog in this little valley one morning made for some pretty cool shots. The last photo I posted was also from this day. I love the dreaminess that fog brings to a photo/place.

I woke up and saw this view out of my cabin window. I sprinted outside and took this photo right as the fog was dispersing. The fog made everything look like a painting 😍

An incredible day spent at this little sauna on the lake. Apparently our crew broke the record for most jumps in one day (probably 30 each 😅🥶 ). The glacial-fed water was freezing which contrasted perfectly with the super hot sauna. Who’s down to come back? @whitecap

Yesterday we woke up in a little log cabin, ate breakfast and headed into the mountains. We spent the day exploring jagged ridges, alpine lakes and colourful meadows. Shot on the Canon 5Dmk4 with a 70-200mm lens.

After a super long night sleeping in the back seat of a tiny Nissan, the sun came up and rewarded us with a sky full of pink clouds and a perfectly still lake.

After a day of adventures, we stopped at this creek in Canmore for a beautiful sunset. I shot this on the Canon 5Dmk4 with a 16-35mm lens + a polarizing filter. Edited with my new Master Collection (link in bio ).

We left at 2:30am, started hiking at 3:30am, got rained on half way up the muddy cliff (we climbed up from the cliff on the right side ) and made it to the top in time for a beautiful sunrise. I think the views were worth the challenge.

The Rocky Mountains are something special. We pulled over on the side of the highway and found a trail that led us here. I spent 30 mins trying to get a shot of a dragonfly but I had no success 😂

Indonesia video coming tomorrow : ) We spent 2 weeks shooting in some incredible and remote locations in Indonesia at the beginning of August. I finished editing last night and it’s one of my favourite videos to date. Stay tuned 🙌🏼

Thinking about going back to Bali soon as it starts getting colder here in Vancouver... is it weird that I feel homesick for Bali?

And just like that, the first annual @triplit conference has come to a close. I couldn’t have asked for a better group of amazing people to take part and focus all their energy on creating a positive impact through social media. I took this photo a few days ago during the conference and just found some time to edit it : )

We spent the afternoon at Atlantis sand dunes. On the horizon is Table mountain- one of the new 7 wonders of the world. Today is the last day of the @triplit conference and I couldn’t have asked for a better week with such an amazing group of people.

This was probably one of the worst days of weather I’ve ever tried shooting in. The wind was insane, the rain was blowing in our face so hard that it stung, and wet sand got everywhere. What better place to wear a dress? @rachienoe is a little crazy.

After a freezing cold 2am start and 2 hours of hiking from our basecamp later, we reached the famous rainbow mountain for sunrise. This was my second time here and it was just as incredible as the first.

The moment the gates to Petra open, walk straight here. It’ll take about an hour (all uphill ) but you’ll have the whole monastery to yourself. Afterwards you can hike back down the mountain and explore the massive city carved into the canyon below.

Every morning in Alor was filled with the craziest sunbeams. It felt like we were shooting a Planet Earth documentary. Happy Independence Day to all my Indonesian followers out there!

An old favourite of mine from an incredible morning in Switzerland. A helicopter dropped us off on top of a nearby mountain and we tried not to: A ) Freeze to death, and B ) Fall off the cliff. The Swiss Alps make you feel so tiny.

We waited for the perfect timing with the sun shining through the trees. It created a spotlight on the ground right in front of the waterfall. The locals loved showing us the way to this secret spot hidden below their village, so we managed to pick up an extra 15 or so excited locals on the way down.

We spent the night in the clouds at Wae Rebo village. The cloud/fog was thin enough to create these insane light beams from the hut’s lantern. These local guys were stoked to pose like super hero’s for the shot. I had to do 2 separate exposures- one for the hut with the light on, then one for the misty stars without the light.

We came up with this concept and told the captain. He said we had 5 minutes to nail it before the crew had to take down the sails. @josiahwg and I jumped in the water with the 1Dxii and started shooting. Rushed underwater shoots are probably the most exhausting/challenging of all. This is the best we got in a single exposure. Shot with a dome port + a 14mm lens at f/8 (unfortunately Josiah is still out of focus ).

Beautiful calm mornings near Mt. Fuji- the tallest mountain in Japan. Fuji stands out like crazy because there’s no other mountains around it, which makes it look even taller than the already insane ~12,400ft peak. If you’re in japan I highly recommend taking the train to Fuji!

On our 3rd day in Komodo, we stopped at one of the many pink beaches this park is so famous for. The nearby coral is bright red which slowly gets ground up and ultimately ends up as red sand. When you mix this red coral sand with the white rock sand, you get pink 👍🏼 Check my story to see how I took this shot! @indtravel #wonderfullindonesia

Imagine looking out of the airplane window and seeing this! The flight from Ende to Labuan Bajo was easily the most beautiful flight I’ve ever been on. It was non-stop volcanoes and sunbeams the entire time. @indtravel #wonderfullindonesia

@josiahwg and I decided to leave on a photo mission at 11:30pm from our boat. We did a short hike and got on top of this hill. The Milky Way was insane and we stayed up there until 2:30am. This was the first photo we took, and probably the best one. I’ll post a before and after photo on my story in the morning because this almost looks fake, but for now it’s back to stargazing on the roof of our boat ✨ Shot on the Canon 1Dxii with a 20mm f/1.4 lens. 15 second exposure, 2000 ISO. @indtravel #wonderfullindonesia

Perfectly clear water surrounding one of the many beautiful islands here in Komodo National Park. It’ll be interesting shooting the rest of this trip without my drone because it came to a very violent end this evening as I crashed it into the mast of our boat... @indtravel #wonderfullindonesia

We’ve arrived in Komodo national park for the next leg of our trip through Indonesia. I’ve wanted to come to this insane place for so long, and I’m super excited to finally be here. @indtravel #wonderfullindonesia

Every morning in Alor was blanketed in a layer of mist which meant we didn’t have to go far to shoot sunrise. Sunbeams everywhere.

Today we woke up at sunrise and began a long drive across the island in hopes of finding this waterfall. After about 2 hours on a bumpy, mostly dirt road, we reached a village. The villagers immediately took charge and led the way. We had an entourage of about 20 locals eager to show us the magical spot. Shot on the Canon 1DxII with a 14mm lens. This is a 5 photo vertical panorama- necessary in order to get the whole tree in the shot. Edited with the ‘Monday Updated’ preset from my new Master Collection.

One of the most relaxing things I’ve experienced underwater is watching bubbles float from scuba divers beneath you. @indtravel #wonderfullindonesia
