I’m proud to announce that I’ve been awarded the Philip Hyde Grant for the Sacred Headwaters, Sacred Journey project. The NANPA Foundation, an offshoot of the North American Nature Photography Association, annually awards the $5,000 grant to a peer-reviewed environmental project.

The funds will help support the fieldwork needed to tell the story of the Sacred Headwaters in northern British Columbia. For more on the project, visit www.sacredheadwatersjourney.com

A big thank you to the NANPA Foundation and NANPA! If you haven’t been to one of NANPA’s annual Summits, they are a tremendous resource for nature photographers, a lot of fun, and a great way to connect with photographers and others in the industry. For more information, visit:

The grant will be presented at NANPA’s 16th Annual Nature Photography Summit, February 16-21, 2010 in Reno, Nevada.

 Salmon flying overhead, en route to spawn in the massive Fraser River watershed. @natgeo @macleansmag @natgeocreative @exploreinside @hellobc #explorebc #explorecanada  The millions of salmon I swam with just weeks ago have all since died and are being absorbed by the rich west coast forests. See the story in the current issue of @macleansmag. @natgeocreative  The Magenta Foundation's beautiful Flash Forward Tenth box set on my doorstep this morning. Thanks Magenta, it's an honour to be a part of this.  Just five years ago the sockeye salmon run in the Fraser River was so low that there was a multiyear and multimillion dollar inquiry into the issue. Fast forward to today, and the Fraser River is experiencing a massive run. The millions of salmon migrating up the river system are a dramatic illustration of how little we know about this fish so deeply rooted in west coast culture. #onassignment @natgeo @macleansmag @natgeocreative
