Tony Trott

Living in Cochrane, so close to the mountains, I love to cross-country ski in winter, hike in the summer and enjoy taking photographs of my favourite western Canadian locations and wildlife, including birds. Recently I had a truly amazing and inspiring experience spending six days in Churchill, Manitoba, photographing Polar Bears and Red Foxes. So the challenge is to capture and communicate the awe I feel when seeing these animals, or any wildlife, in the wild and close up

 I also have a passion for history and the art, architecture, beautiful dramatic scenery and culture of Western Civilization which takes me frequently to Europe for travel and exploration. My objective is to make the viewer want to visit the same places and and undertake their own exploration. With all my travel photography I try to make the picture unique, by leaving a question in the viewer’s mind, for example – ‘What is at the end of the stairs?’

Wherever I am, I find having a camera in my hand gives me a greater appreciation and in-sight into what I am observing. I hope that through seeing my photographs, others may be inspired to appreciate, value and care for the amazing world around us. I find this greater awareness also compliments my other interest of teaching Yoga and Meditation.

When presenting my photographic images, I like to experiment with different media. Depending on the subject, I may use metal, canvas, acrylic or photo paper.
