The Dolomites – September 2016

Some of you may have heard of this place, The Dolomites.  It is a mountain range in the North-East of Italy and it spans 16 000 square kilometres.  Yes it is massive!  And to think this was my first time visiting.  We drove in the dark so I did not really know what I was in for when we arrived.  I love to hike, but this is by far the biggest one yet.  A 2 day 2000 + meter elevation trip.  I know, hikers do this all the time, and now I understand why.  This place is magical.  It is uninhabited.  Full of rock formations and angles and colours, it is unlike any other place I have ever seen.  When you hike here, it feels as if you are in another world.  Somewhere only the birds can reach and the clouds can grace.  We spend our first night in a small hotel in Selva, in the Gardena Valley in Province of Bolzano.  From there we hiked approximately 8 hours along the route 17A and route 2 through the Puez National Park to the Refrugio Puez, where we ate and spent the night.  The next day we awoke early to perfectly clear skies and hiked route 2 back to Selva approximately 5 hours.  It was a long weekend, we hiked about 30 kilometres in total.  And I was super sore for a week, but man was it worth it.  I am so happy that my body allows me to explore the way I do. Warning, 100 + insane mountain images are to follow. Until next time …

My approach to photography is simple and pure. I use only natural light to create an image; and work hard to develop an artistic photo, whether it be for a client or as a self project. I do not care about staging shots, excessive make up, and set ups. I capture what is there, with love for that special moment. With an advanced diploma in photography from Canada, I choose to follow my dream to work as a freelance photographer. With over 10 years in experience, I can capture your special moments, smiling faces, products or food in a simplistic, colourful and uncomplicated way. I photograph with my heart and believe in sustainability, conscious consumption and responsibility. When you book a photography session, purchase an image, or participate in a workshop or retreat, you are supporting social organizations and projects. I run my small business on green electricity, all print material is climate-neutral and supports other charitable projects for people and the environment. This is a very important concept for me to follow. Every daily decision and choice we make, has the potential to create a cleaner and happier community and world. If you are interested in purchasing fine art photographs or my cookbook, hoping to have images taken or just want to connect, I am happy to make a new friend.
