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.

 On #WorldFoodDay I'm photographing a commercial salmon fishery. But this one, called a terminal fishery, is different than most. Rather than fishing in coastal waters where nets catch salmon from a number of different runs, including threatened ones, terminal fisheries catch salmon farther up river near their spawning grounds. This allows them to target only strong, healthy runs, while letting threatened runs recover. Some people won't eat salmon from terminal fisheries, claiming the fish are too dry and the worse for wear after their long migration, while others eat only terminal fishery salmon, saying the slight difference in taste is a small price for sustainability. #onassignment for @natgeo @macleansmag. @natgeocreative  Wood Buffalo National Park, where the bison don't roam prairies, they crash through trees. Start of a new project on this land of superlatives. @cangeo @travelalberta #explorealberta  Following the finger to Canyon City, searching for salvation fish.  Happy World Snake Day!
