Working and living in remote Northern British Columbia, Canada

This summer has been one of the best summers of my life working and living in northern BC. I had the opportunity to live in an extremely remote place, photograph rare and elusive wild animals, and work as a BC PFO (Park Facility Operator). Through my job I also got alot of experience with wildlife management including the management of bears bison and moose within the Park. It was my job on a regular basis to move wild animals out of the park to avoid habituation and attacks.

This summer has also allowed me time to really focus on my wildlife photography which is something I have become very passionate about. I'm hope to keep improving my skills and eventually use my images to promote positive change and conservation in Canada. Next is a winter in the Prince Rupert/Port Edward area where I will continue to work on wildlife photography

Here are some photos from the summer in the north:
