Jenaya at WiLDSPEAK, Nature’s Best Awards and Smithsonian Exhibition

This November Jenaya traveled to Washington DC to take part in the 2016 Nature’s Best Windland Smith Rice International Photography Awards and see her winning image, “Ramscape” on exhibit in the Smithsonian. In fact, Jenaya ended up being one of four photographers from BC & Alberta awarded in this year’s competition, including the Grand Prize […]

Jenaya returns to the Smithsonian with “Ramscape” | The story behind the image

We couldn’t be more excited to share that Jenaya’s work is back on exhibit in the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History in Washington, DC! “Ramscape” is a favourite image of Jenaya’s both because of the story behind it and the fact it comes from her home stompin’ grounds (photographed less than an hour from her door!).

Jenaya Awarded for 2nd Time in Nature’s Best

It’s our pleasure to announce that Jenaya has been awarded in the 2015 Nature’s Best Windland Smith Rice International Photography Awards. This is her second win in this competition, having been named the Youth Photographer of the Year in 2013.

This year’s awarded image was taken outside of Kamloops, British Columbia on a photography trip looking for Sierra Nevada Bighorn Sheep (formerly known as California bighorns), a species-at-risk. We were rewarded in finding a great group of rams, and Jenaya, Josiah and I (John), headed out–and up–in search of good angles for some animals-in-their-environment images of them. Read more

Jenaya & Josiah awarded in Por el Planeta

This past summer Jenaya and Josiah both received a pretty exciting email from none other than acclaimed conservation photographer, Cristina Mittermeier. I (John) was in town with Josiah when the email came through, telling us Josiah had been awarded in Por el Planeta, and I reached for my phone to share the news with Jenaya only to read an incoming message from her saying, “Guess what?!?!”

It turns out both my talented young photographers had made it through the thousands of entries (28,578 to be precise) to each have an image awarded as Specially Commended in this prestigious and important competition. Read more

Josiah awarded in 2015 Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition

We are so excited to share that Josiah has had two images awarded in the oldest and most prestigious wildlife photography competitions in the world, the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition put on by the Natural History Museum (U.K.) and BBC Wildlife.

This year’s competition saw over 42,000 images submitted from 96 countries, and the competition in the Young Wildlife Photographer of the Year categories has never been stronger. This is Josiah’s second year entering the competition, and he has had multiple images selected for the final round both times, but we were certainly not expecting him to end up with two of the top 100 images!
