I cracked open the door to my car, as ice had formed on the seals of the door. It was three in the morning and I had slept in my car during the night so that I could just hope out of my car and start photographing Tipsoo Lake and Little Tipsoo Lake under a star covered sky. It was cold, but I had the right gear on for the job, I slipped my backpack on, grab my tripod and I was off. As my -40 degrees celsius boots crunch through the snow, I smile and thought “I love these boots”, it didn’t take long at all and I was at the spot I’d scouted the day before, assembled all my gear together and started photographing away.


It’s funny how your mind takes into perspective the environment you’re in, for if I was feeling this cold in my TV room at home I’d be wanting to get a rug to put over me, but out here I felt snug and warm and happy to spend the next 5 hours out in this cold.


This image was taken at about 5 in the morning at Tipsoo Lake, there was virtually no wind to distort the reflection on the lake.


What a great morning, fingers where a little cold, but one thing’s for sure when you have the right gear it makes coping with this sort of environment a walk in the park, well a walk in a National Park!

  • "The One" Fine Art Portfolio

    “The One“ Fine Art Portfolio imagery has an edition size of one, there is only one hand signed print in existence. The image can be reproduced in my Gift Collection product range, but no larger than a 10 x 10inch surface area in size. Gift Collection products, such as the Fine Art Mini print, actively promote the existence of ”The One” imagery and help increase their popularity and potential value. They also act as a preview for customers looking at purchasing ”The One” imagery.


    “The One” imagery is printed on the most archivally stable media at the time, but they can be reprinted onto a different media or to a different size, at any time by the purchaser, once the current print media is destroyed, this ensures that there is only one print in existence at any one time. Being able to reprint the image at any time overcomes the issues of fading, as all artworks fade, and of accidental damage. This enables “The One” imagery to be passed down through countless generations. For further information on "The One" Fine Art Portfolio see this link below “The Different Portfolio’s”.
