Visual storytelling that will leave you nostalgic for places and moments you may have never been...
Based out of the South Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, Preserved Light Photography's work is layered in outdoor adventures, scenic landscapes, authentic lifestyles and travel destinations that are not only visually engaging, but emotionally engaging as well.

My passion for capturing timeless imagery that instills a sense of wonder is emphasized by utilizing strong compositional techniques, unique perspectives, dramatic lighting and an incessant curiosity towards the humbling world around us. The stories and experiences we share are what connect us to one another during our life on Planet Earth. Let the days unfold before you like a map.

Working closely with Tourism Organizations and Travel Companies, my work has been published and awarded by National Geographic, North Face, Time Magazine, Google+, the CBC, Sigma Lenses, the International Mountain Summit, Outdoor Photography Canada Magazine and the Canadian National Capitol Commission to name a few.
