Patiently waiting for the snow to arrive. This was taken last year around this time when Vancouver got some decent amount of snow. I always wanted to photograph Stanley Park when it was covered in white. I was fortunate enough to arrive to such perfect conditions. This year I hope for another morning like this one to try some new perspectives of this place!

A less popular bamboo forest hidden in the heart of Kyoto. I actually booked a wrong Airbnb and found this place by chance. The entire time we were the only people there. It was definitely a beautiful path to walk. I did some photoshop magic to give this place a winter kind of vibe! Also, can you spot that heart? #Whpnaturallight #TLpicks #thecreativeshots #wildernesstones #depthofearth #vol5k #streetgrammer #cloudzdelight #theroguecrew #wildvisuals   #Japan #kyoto #visitjapanjp #folkscenery #exploreourearth #theweekoninstagram #thegreatoutdoors #earthoutdoors #exploretocreate #mountainstories #wanderfolk #moodygrams #earthofficial #neverstopexploring #wildernessculture #lifeofadventure #moodnation #visualambassadors #artofvisuals at Kyoto, Japan

Took a trip to Emerald Lake in the new 2018 Ford Escape. Not only does it have the latest automotive technology, for a SUV this size the fuel efficiency is outstanding as well. Thanks @fordcanada for making this trip possible!

This was from my first ever visit to Peyto Lake! I still have a clear memory of it! The walk up through the stack of snow and the cold winter breeze. This view really taught me how magical nature is. Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

At the start of autumn I had the opportunity to go on a three day adventure around BC with the 2018 Ford Escape! I love how advanced the technology is. From their navigation, to their push start button to the wide angle rear view camera, theses designs made driving on this trip a breeze. A huge thanks to @fordcanada for making this possible! Swipe right to see some of the photos taken during the first few days of the trip! #FordEscape #partner #ad . . . . . . #Vancouver #dailyhivevan #explorebc #pnwonderland #explorecanada #depthobsessed #curiocityvan   #createexplore #wildernessculture #visualsofearth #visualsoflife #artofvisuals #visualambassadors #eclectic_shotz #agameoftones #lifeofadventure #folkgreen #beautifuldestinations #theglobewanderer #moodygrams #discoverearth #roamtheplanet #stayandwander #greatnorthcollective at British Columbia

The first day I landed in Shanghai I was not expecting to wake up the next morning to such a gorgeous sunrise. The clouds were at the right spots and before this the entire horizon was lit with red. The excitement as I ran along the entire deck trying to capture this view from every angle! Little did I know I went back maybe 10 more times during my stay to get this view under different weathers and different perspectives. Before and after will be posted to my stories shortly for anyone who is interested! #sonyalpha #ourmoodydays #hikingtheglobe #tentree #way2ill #outdoortones #reflectiongram #fatalframes #theimaged #discoverer #tonekillers #djiglobal #artofvisuals #visualambassadors #eclectic_shotz #agameoftones #shotaward #folkscenery #streetmobs #beautifuldestinations #heatercentral #moodygrams #illgrammers #ourstreetdays #streets_vision #stayandwander #citykillerz #china #shanghai at Shanghai, China

Trying to share all my autumn photos before winter season arrives or I might have to wait till next year jk jk. Anyways driving from Jasper to Banff was one of the most scenic drives I’ve ever done! Can’t remember how many times I stopped to take photos of roads and glacial mountain backgrounds. #sonyalpha #ournaturedays #hikingtheglobe #tentree #way2ill #outdoortones #depthobsessed #createexplore #earthofficial #discoverer #wildernessculture #djiglobal #artofvisuals #visualambassadors #eclectic_shotz #agameoftones #lifeofadventure #folkscenery #folkgood #beautifuldestinations #theglobewanderer #moodygrams #visualofearth #discoverearth #roamtheplanet #stayandwander #jasper #explorecanada #travelalberta at Jasper, Alberta

One of my favourite nature hikes close to Vancouver. Most people post about the 2nd lake and walking the log but I thought why not give the first lake some love! This was shot during super harsh afternoon light. If anyone is interested in how I processed this image with a bit of an extra detailed explanation I’ll be sharing it to my stories in a bit! #sonyalpha #ourmoodydays #createexplore #tentree #way2ill #outdoortones #depthobsessed #createexplore #earthofficial #discoverer #wildernessculture #visualsofearth #artofvisuals #visualambassadors #eclectic_shotz #agameoftones #lifeofadventure #folkscenery #folkgreen #beautifuldestinations #theglobewanderer #moodygrams #shotzdelight #discoverearth #roamtheplanet #stayandwander #vancouver #explorecanada #explorebc at Joffre Lakes Provincial Park

A blue hour shot at Lake Louise. I’ve been trying to use the tripod more under low light conditions but most the time after the sun sets I call it a day or I do my hikes trying to carry as little as possible and usually never bring my tripod. I should totally get a lighter and mobile one during Christmas since it allows me new possibilities for photos eh? If anyone is interested in the before and after I’ll post it to my stories in a bit! . . . . . . . #sonyalpha #ourmoodydays #createexplore #bluehour #way2ill #sunrise #depthobsessed #createexplore #explore #landscape #wildernessculture #visualsofearth #visualsoflife #artofvisuals #visualambassadors #eclectic_shotz #agameoftones #lifeofadventure #folkgood #folkgreen #beautifuldestinations #theglobewanderer #moodygrams #shotzdelight #discoverearth #roamtheplanet #stayandwander #bluehour #iceland #europe at Lake Louise, Alberta

Woke up today and there were some story questions I didn’t address so I’ll answer them here. Why I choose photoshop over LR was asked quite frequently. I like photoshop because it provides flexibility and localized adjustments. You can be more detailed and as well as change the image however you like. My favorite weather to photograph under. I love partly cloudy partly sunny days, especially the ones after and before the a storm. I feel like that is when the clouds get the most massive and we also have the right light. My set up is Sony a7riii with 16-35mm lens for landscape usually. I love the Sony for its dynamic range which captures all the shadows and most the highlights the majority of the time. Hope this was a good read haha. Enjoy your weekends everyone! . . . . . . #Explorecanada #explorealberta #ourmoodydays #createexplore #ig_color #way2ill #reflectiongram #depthobsessed #createexplore #natgeo #landscape #wildernessculture #cabin #visualsofearth #visualsoflife #artofvisuals #visualambassadors #eclectic_shotz #agameoftones #lifeofadventure #soft_vision #folkgreen #beautifuldestinations #theglobewanderer #moodygrams #shotzdelight #discoverearth #roamtheplanet #stayandwander #greatnorthcollective at Emerald Lake, Yoho National Park

A view from the Kinsol Trestle! I was fortunate enough to visit this place back in spring. A nice hidden gem on Vancouver island! If anyone is interested I’ll be uploading some stories talking about editing and photography! #forest #vancouver #explorecanada #moodygrams #theweekoninstagram #outside_project #theimaged #artofvisuals #stayandwander #shotzdelight #earthescope #djiglobal #greatnorthcollective #ourplanetdaily #visualambassadors #canada #the_folknature #folkgood #mthrworld #exploretocreate #folkscenery #wondermore #folkgreen #ourmoodydays #eclectic_shotz #agameoftones #reflectiongram #mountainstones #earth_shotz at Kinsol Trestle

Let the light guide you through this photo. I think I’m changing up my editing style again. Less S curves, less presets, less contrast. Photography for me is a combination of both snapping the photo at the right setting combined with the right amount of post editing. Let me know your thoughts on this edit and also before and after stories will be up in a bit 🙏 shot on the a7riii 16-35 f4 1/160 ISO 160 . . . . . . . #sonyalpha #ourmoodydays #createexplore #bluehour #way2ill #folkscenery #depthobsessed #createexplore #explore #landscape #wildernessculture #visualsofearth #visualsoflife #artofvisuals #visualambassadors #eclectic_shotz #agameoftones #lifeofadventure #folkgood #folkgreen #beautifuldestinations #theglobewanderer #moodygrams #shotzdelight #discoverearth #roamtheplanet #stayandwander #waterfall #iceland #europe at Kirkjufell

This shot was taken during blue hour on the Mavic Pro. It was a very dark and gloomy day and I struggled to edit images from this set for quite a while now since the details tends to get very noisy. But yesterday I think I found a way to keep the noise at a minimum and also retaining the details! Let me know your thoughts on this edit and I’ll be sharing some before and afters on my story in a bit to show the low light situation that day! . . . . . . . #sonyalpha #ourmoodydays #createexplore #way2ill #dji #depthobsessed #createexplore #explore #landscape #wildernessculture #visualsofearth #visualsoflife #artofvisuals #visualambassadors #eclectic_shotz #agameoftones #lifeofadventure #folkscenery #folkgreen #beautifuldestinations #theglobewanderer #moodygrams #shotzdelight #discoverearth #roamtheplanet #stayandwander #bluehour #iceland #europe at Iceland

Walking into Nara Park was one of the most memorable moments of my trip to Japan. This was one of the very first pictures I snapped. I really wish I could have spend a few more days there but maybe next year. For anyone who is interested I’ll be uploading some before and afters of this edit to my stories later! . . . . . . . #Japan #nara #ourmoodydays #createexplore #sonyalpha #autumn #日本 #depthobsessed #theweekoninstagram #earthoutdoors #landscape #wildernessculture #sunrise #visualsofearth #visualsoflife #artofvisuals #visualambassadors #eclectic_shotz #agameoftones #lifeofadventure #folkscenery #discoverearth #beautifuldestinations #theglobewanderer #moodygrams #nature #discoverearth #roamtheplanet #stayandwander at Nara Deer Park, Japan

This shot was taken by my friend @arwin.l a week after my visit to Banff. When I went it felt like summer still but the transition to winter came really quick. I dreamed to see Moraine Lake covered in snow! I shall come back next year for this. For the time being heres an edit I did last night of this place! Also, I am currently working on improving my portrait game so be ready for some portrait spam on my stories maybe in a few days! . . . . . #explorecanada #explorealberta #ourmoodydays #createexplore #canada #reflectiongram #depthobsessed #theweekoninstagram #earthoutdoors #landscape #wildernessculture #morainelake #visualsofearth #visualsoflife #artofvisuals #visualambassadors #eclectic_shotz #agameoftones #lifeofadventure #banff #folkgreen #beautifuldestinations #theglobewanderer #moodygrams #shotzdelight #discoverearth #roamtheplanet #stayandwander #greatnorthcollective at Moraine Lake

Some day I will visit this place myself and see how magical and beautiful it is with my own eyes! Europe has some of the worlds most beautiful landscapes ever and I hope to explore it starting next year! Thanks to my buddy @thedronelad for letting me edit this aerial shot he took! . . . . . . . #ourmoodydays #createexplore #ig_color #way2ill #reflectiongram #depthobsessed #createexplore #natgeo #landscape #wildernessculture #peoplescreatives #visualsofearth #visualsoflife #artofvisuals #visualambassadors #eclectic_shotz #agameoftones #lifeofadventure #soft_vision #folkgreen #beautifuldestinations #theglobewanderer #moodygrams #shotzdelight #discoverearth #roamtheplanet #stayandwander #greatnorthcollective at Mont Saint-Michel

A nice afternoon view from one of my favourite places on earth. While I was editing this I made the shot so dark I actually thought I took this at night. Color grading this picture was challenging and I think I still have some places to improve 😂😂 if you’re interested in the before and after I’ll be sharing it on my story in a bit! . . . . . . #Explorecanada #explorealberta #ourmoodydays #createexplore #ig_color #way2ill #reflectiongram #depthobsessed #createexplore #natgeo #landscape #wildernessculture #cabin #visualsofearth #visualsoflife #artofvisuals #visualambassadors #eclectic_shotz #agameoftones #lifeofadventure #soft_vision #folkgreen #beautifuldestinations #theglobewanderer #moodygrams #shotzdelight #discoverearth #roamtheplanet #stayandwander #greatnorthcollective at Emerald Lake, Yoho National Park
