Winter in the Canadian Rockies by Darwin Wiggett

Darwin Wiggett has been a photographer that I have had my eye on for a long time. I’m not sure why this is exactly but it likely gets down to “I can relate to what he does”. I spent eight years living in Calgary with trips to the Canadian Rockies or Montana most weekends, almost a religious experience. This is the power these magnificent mountains can hold over you whether you are purely a tourist or a photographer. Being a professional photographer, I have also explored these areas and been completely blown away by the absolute beauty and feeling of the Canadian Rockies. Darwin Wiggett takes it one step further and shows us the beauty of this area in winter, perhaps in some ways the most beautiful season but at the same time for a photographer the most difficult.

I’ve always been fascinated in viewing other photographers work, partly for a personal learning experience but also from a more “business” sense”. I should mention here that I completely believe in the idea that you are never good enough that you have nothing to learn. I’ll leave that to the arrogant photographers living in big cities.

What does Darwin Wiggett bring to us in this e-book? Firstly, he talks about the preparation behind doing serious photography during the winter. I know that everyone has an “amazing” photo they shot but let’s get realistic; doing photography in winter conditions is both hard on the camera equipment as well as our aging bodies.

Darwin’s photos are an example of a photographer that feels completely relaxed within their surroundings,. Believe me, this is one of the most important factors! He is a master at the grand landscape but also works well with the intimate landscape as well, all of this in the harsh conditions that winter can bring.
