I’m excited to launch this website highlighting my photography over the past few years. Thank you to the people who have encouraged me to continue working on pursuing my passion of photography. Every time I pull the camera out, I learn more about how I can make the next photograph better. It drives the perfectionist in me crazy….always thinking about the next really good photo opportunity.
Also, it seems fitting that my website is getting launched during the 2017 Calgary Stampede. This is a special time of year for Calgarians. Myself included as we celebrate our western heritage, and share with the general public many things about agriculture, rodeo and tradition. I am passionate about agriculture in Canada. Because of this, I hope that some of my photos share with you the beauty of this industry. It’s where our food comes from, and it’s important for everyone to understand it.
Therefore, I dedicate this first blog post and this website to my Mom, Shannon Burwash. She left this world suddenly over 4.5 years ago, and not a day goes by that I don’t think of her. I wish she was here to see this and sadly my dream was for her to help me create this website. She had a good eye for many things including horses. I am a very visual person, and confident that some of these skills and gifts came from her. Thanks Mom!
As a result, my goal with this blog is to share some impactful photos with a story that you can relate to or learn from. Hence, the story is the foundation of the photo. Without it there is no substance. Please do not be afraid to share your thoughts or your experiences. Take a look at my gallery, and if you see something you love, let me know.
In closing, I’m always looking for great photo opportunities. So, I would love to capture your story and your passion out on the ranch or farm. Reach out, and let’s connect.
