"It's just you and me, Helmcken Falls. I hear your thunder and feel your intimacy. I want you close up and in-character, know what I'm sayin'?" This is the conversation I have with myself when I take photos!

Why? Because nature speaks back.

Aerial Magnitude. That's my nickname for Wells Gray Provincial Park! This place has the most saturated amount of waterfalls I've ever seen. Every location has a unique character bearing it's own thunderous roar and it didn't take long for me to realize these are often the most peaceful vibrations. I'll drop a link at the end of my Instagram Story so you can read about my full experience in this rare utpia only 3hrs from Kelowna! Meet Spahats Falls, British Columbia, Canada.

I'd like you to meet a true man of the British Columbia wild. They call him 'Trailhead-Ed' and @apreswheeler and I had the opportunity to ride 20km with Ed along the Kettle Valley Rail Trail while on assignment for #Route97. Ed likes his bike rides long and stories full of soul. He's had that twinkle in his eye for this place his whole life and he's a saturated gold mine of historical facts. Follow the link at the end of my Instagram Story for more on Ed and the KVR Trail, BC. 🤘

In Gold Country, British Columbia you'll meet the unexpected; wild and free. Face to face. One soft stare and one golden shimmer to drive the feeling home. It only took dust in our eyes and grit in our teeth to produce a moment that will live forever. The horse knows what I'm sayin'. 🤠🐎 @sundanceguestranch

Right now I have PURE, raw & unfiltered discovery in my veins and this is what it looks like!

I've been coarsing through the interior cascades region of British Columbia discovering this culturally and geographically diverse landscape and we've discovered enchanting surprises around every corner. Like this one at Moul Falls, where you can actually hike behind the waterfall! I'm honored and beyond excited to share the experiences with you this week. 📍 Moul Falls, Wells Gray Provincial Park, BC (@tourismwellsgray)

Today I figured something out: I don't believe in living to die another day. I want to live to DISCOVER another day.

Tomorrow morning I'm on an early flight to #BritishColumbia shooting photos for an upcoming campaign about regional exploration. As we discover a new "route" I'll be sharing behind the scenes footage and I obviously won't be able to sleep tonight. TYPICAL!

Coming for you @hellobc #explorebc #onassignment #explorecanada.

One fleeting moment in the Northwest Territories still stands out from the rest.

To set the tone: I flew out to Yellowknife for the first time ever to meet with top visual creators, explore the region with the team at Samsung Canada and shoot on their new Galaxy Note8 device. I always get thrown into classic scenarios with people I've never met before and this time it was long bus rides and dark hikes through the wilderness. The night started fairly tame and a few of us were enjoying some hot chocolate inside our camp when all of a sudden we heard a group of guides and people outside FREAK OUT LOUDLY! We all dove out of the teepee and looked straight up to see the northern lights burst into the sky directly above us. Our eyes swam in streams of color. She instantly captivated every single one of us. No time to set up camera equipment. We were all laughing/crying/yelling "Look up here! Now over there! ARE YOU SEEING THIS!?" At that very moment, something else amazing happened - our crew went from strangers to friends.

This photo was shot on the new #GalaxyNote8 and I'm still in disbelief we live in a time when we can capture these brief yet unforgettable instances with a handheld device. It's a great time to be alive! @samsungcanada #SamsungCanada #DoBiggerThings #ShotFromTheGalaxy (literally)

I landed at Nimmo Bay Resort by floatplane and instantly marvelled upon a place in full symbiotic harmony with it's natural environment. Nestled in the Great Bear Rainforest and one of the world's first eco-lodges, @nimmobayresort will steal your heart because they stole mine and they should be under arrest! 😂 Then I found out the resort was also named as one of the 'Unique Lodges of the World' as chosen by @natgeo. No wonder! It's one of the most rare and environmentally significant places in Canada. Photographed while #onassignment for @cangeo in British Columbia, Canada. 🇨🇦 #sharecangeo #cangeotravel #nimmobay #explorebc #explorecanada #natgeo

My heart breaks from all the BC wildfires this season. See, in British Columbia you can touch life through the trees... I hope these lives can be saved. 🌲 @hellobc #explorebc @canoncanada #canoncanada
