In this section you’ll find a variety of different media that I share regularly. Primarily this area will be populated with Photo Essays, but every once in a while I’ll share some travel video, made by either me or found during browsing. I’m hoping to eventually share some more Canadian music here as well.

Photo Du Jour: The Ragged Falls, Ontario

During my recent trip through Algonquin Park I actually evolved from a regular human into a highly optimized photo taking robotic machine. While I was in my highly evolved state, I was able to hike several trails, including the trail up to Ragged Falls. The trail is surprisingly easy and well groomed, which makes it […]

Sunday Canadian Travel Video – Dorset Tower Time Lapse in Ontario

Ontario blew my mind. Those four words have been repeated countless times in the last week. I’ve been editing photos, video, and squeezing in writing as often as I can in order to show everyone what exactly I mean by that. I finally managed to find time to quickly edit this time lapse video of […]

Algonquin-Park in Autumn Ontario-Canoe Lake

Photo Du Jour: Algonquin Park’s Autumn Reflections

I recently finished a trip throughout the Algonquin Park, a beautiful and historical provincial park that has been named a national historic site. The history in the area is well worth a post on its own, and while I have started it, I am far from finished. I’m still on the road at the moment, […]


Sunday Canadian Travel Video – The Surf Lifestyle in Tofino BC

I’ve been on a real west coast stint as of lately with Fridays photo of Vancouvers Skyline and countless posts in the last couple months about British Columbia. So just to be consistent, I’ve decided to share a video by Tourism Canada of one of my favourite locations in Canada. Tofino is a surf town […]


Photo Du Jour – Downtown Vancouver Skyline

Since starting I Backpack Canada in 2009, I’ve had the opportunity to see some extraordinary places and meet countless other travel writers and bloggers. The community and sense of “family” that’sĀ developedĀ around the travel blogging industry initially caught me by surprise. It has now become my go-to when I have questions regarding everything from ethics, photography […]


Photo Du Jour – Kalamalka Lake in the Okanagan Valley

I love coming across locations in Canada that break my preconceived ideas of what Canada “looks like”. It’s all too easy to sum up Canada as a big giant nation with mountains, lakes, some arctic regions, a few prairies and a whole bunch of trees. However, there’s many places across Canada that defy that notion. […]


Photo Du Jour – Hometown Sunset, Regina SK

It’s been several months since I’ve been back home. This wet summer the maritimes has been having is making me crave the scorching hot dry summers of Saskatchewan. Which inspired me to share this image of my hometown of Regina, Saskatchewan. It was taken during sunset at Wascana Lake. I’m a big fan of silhouettes […]


Sunday Canadian Travel Video – Whales and Icebergs in Newfoundland & Labrador

For the last year or so, my redheaded friend from Newfoundland (Candice Does The World) has been bugging me to come for a visit to explore the rock in the Atlantic that she calls home. There’s been a few occasions where I had the flight setup online, all I had left to do was fill […]
